LONG HAIR ROTTWEILER

LONG HAIR ROTTWEILER

I was browsing through the net one day and a came across a Long Hair Rottweiler. He looks stunning.

Just wanted to know if this is common and do they come from the same litter or do they breed this type of coat.



Hi Lina
Actually I have never seen a Rottweiler with a coat like this! I have to say he is a beautiful dog, but the Rottie breed standard calls for a short, smooth coat and this has to be exceptionally rare.

He does look all Rottweiler in every other respect, but I tend to think there must be some mixed heritage in there somewhere (maybe a generation back even) to produce this type of coat.

I doubt very much if you'll ever see another exactly like this, or find long-haired puppies. It's simply not how the breed was intended to look. You may be able to get a similar 'look' from certain mix-breed pairings though!

Thanks for sharing this picture, it's one of a kind I think.

I have a long-haired girl. We rescued her from a shelter 10 years ago. I had never seen or heard of a long-haired rottie, so I hit the internet. This is a natural genetic mutation due to overbreeding. They are 100% full blooded rottie in every way. (It would not have made a difference to me becuase I fell in love with her face and heart the moment I laid eyes on her.)

Long Hair Rott at Milwaukee shelter NEW
by: Pam G.

I found this site just now because I was browsing through the dogs listed online at Milwaukee County Animal Control and saw a long haired male Rott up for adoption. Never saw one before and Googled it to see what came up. Much to my surprise, yeah, there really are long haired Rottweilers. I'm not in the market for one but if anyone is interested in the boy at the Milwaukee County shelter - send out the alarm as like most county shelters, the dogs' days are numbered in that place.

The long haired Rotty is a pure breed, the long hair is caused by a mutated gene, but they cant be show dogs. They are fantastic family pets. I have a 1yr old bitch and she's wonderful. I left her with her tail since she cant be showed anyway and its actually beautiful. Its long and curls up at the tip. I get stopped at everyday and asked about her, she's really is stunning.

long hairs are pure breeds just not common NEW
by: Dawn Struble

To the comment above please research long hairs and you will concur that they are not common. It is a recessive gene and once you have one you want another. I would love another also. But you may not know they are long haired until 9 months or so. The DNA testing is not available in my area. The parents if mine were gorgeous short hairs. In two days it will be one year since mine passed and I keep holding out that I may come across another.

Money makers PT2 NEW
by: Anonymous

I had to split this posting to make sure it all got posted.
My point is that if you want a pet and know that you want a rotties there are many options in purchasing a puppy. Also it is up to the buyer to be informed and make the right decisions when it comes to buying a pup. There are way too many dogs that are unwanted and put down due to people not getting the right dog for them.
On this thread I have read that the reason that some rotties have long hair is because of bad people beading bad dogs and that is just plain ignorant. It is a recessive gene that can happen in almost any line of rottie pups. Nowadays DNA tests are available and if you purchase a pup, the breeders should have had these tests done on both parents. Again it is up to the buyer to do their homework.
About me...I have always neutered or spayed my dogs. I am not a BYB and my dogs have never been parents. I just got my latest rottie pup after looking for almost a year.
Sorry for this long posting but it just bothers me when I see the "professional" breeders say how great they are and how bad BYB are. The professional breeders have reasons to stop BYB and with many of them it is all about money. I have 3 dogs and it takes all my time taking care of them and loving them. So many professional breeders have 5-6 and more dogs. I would like to know how their dogs can be part of their family when you have so many. They are kept in kennels or runs and not treated like pets. They are treated like Money Makers.
Last point is that there are good and bad with both BYB breeders as well as the so called professional breeders. Make sure you do your homework about the rottie breed as well as the people you buy them from. I think we all can agree that there are way too many dogs that end up in shelters due to irresponsible buyers and sellers of rotts.

I know my comment will upset some people. First thing I want to say is that, the puppy mills are the real threat to any breed of dog. They produce inferior puppies with many genetic problems. The conditions in these puppy mills are horrid.
Now the part that will upset some. I see many postings on many forums on how bad back yard breeders(BYB) are and how they are ruining the breed. This is not entirely true. Yes some BYB's are unethical just as some professional breeders are unethical. Over the last 30 years I have purchased many dogs, many breeds from BYB's. If you do your homework, see the puppies, look at the lineage, spend time with the puppies and the owners, I do not see any issue with buying puppies from the RIGHT breeders. When you buy from BYB, do your homework and are looking for pets, they can be a great place to purchase a dog.
I know that many of the postings about how bad BYB's are come from the so called professional breeders. I know many professional breeders are great people who are looking to improve the breed and are good places to purchase a puppy. I do think that one reason that some professional breeders hate BYBs is that it cuts into the money they make. They can charge huge amounts of money for a pup that is no better then you will get from a BYB. On a hole these professional breeders charge huge amounts of money, have you put a large NON REFUNDABLE deposits down on liters that many not have been conceived or not born. I hate the reservation process, you put a large deposit down in the hope you may get a puppy. The will never give your money back and will tell you that your deposit will be transferred to the next liter. I know one person who waited two years and never got a puppy.

Had two, Raven and Caesar NEW
by: Anonymous

I've had coated rotties on both ends of the "friendly" scale.

Raven was the sweetest, sweetest rottie, but Caesar was another story. He was aloof with strangers and other dogs, and would tolerate being petted if I said it was okay. At home though, everyone thought he was a "frothing beast," which did come in handy when our place in the country was the only one that didn't get broken into.

People always asked if Caesar had some Newfie in him .. he didn't; was just a very handsome coated rottie. He was average size, approximately 100 pounds. Raven was on the smallish side, 80 pounds, and she could be trusted with babies, cats, puppies, and the elderly. If someone visited us who was really afraid of rotties or dogs in general, I would get Raven out, let them spend some time with her, but also have them understand that all dogs (rotties) were not like her, and to always, always ask the dog owner's permission before approaching/petting any dog, and especially a strange one.

Wonder if I have a long coat Rottie NEW
by: Ann

Hi all!~ I recently adopted a dog from a local shelter and they had him listed as a Rottie / Bernese Mountain Dog. I'm wondering though, since there aren't many of that breed in the area he was, if he couldn't be one of these " long coats ". He is on the small side ( about 60 pounds ), but his body and head look just like a Rottie and nothing about him looks like any other breed. He was found as a stray in a not so great area, so maybe he could just be a poorly BYB guy? Reading the comments here, he is also the most affectionate and friendly dog I've ever had. Just had him certified for therapy work. Just wondering if anyone had experience with a smaller version...

Good to know I'm not the only one NEW
by: Stewart

I rescued my long haired rott Matteo from a local shelter & we love him! They told me he was a mix with a Bernese Mtn dog. Curious I had him DNA tested & it came back 100% rottie. I felt like I got gipped out of $50, but now I understand. He is allergic to corn gluten. 3 inch super thick hair & curly ears like an Aussie. I thought he was big at 110lbs when he was 2 years old, but now at 5 he's still growing. I thought he was done but his feet got bigger again this spring & the rest if him has caught up. Yesterday at the vet he was 145lbs. Sounds like being overly friendly is common for long hairs & that's an understatement. He spawled all over the floor at the vet & naturally expected that everyone was there to see him. He looks like a bear & occasionally lets out a grunt when he gets his boogedie on - he has endless energy & sometimes just can't hold it in, he tries, but it's almost like he can't & has to run & run & run like a maniac to blow off some energy then comes back to me like ok I'm good now. LOL! He knows you have 2 hands & expects to be touched with both at all times. He likes other animals, but won't allow them to get attention he feels belongs to him & lets them know. Love him, love him, love him! Weird tho doesn't like camo or uniforms.

Long hair is rare but normal NEW
by: Jessie

I grew up with rotts and the very first 2 i grew up with were sisters. They were both from the same litter and they were German Rottys, Buddah was a tipical short hair beautiful rotty and her sister Fuman was a long haired rotty. It isnt common but it dose happen. They were both fullblooded and and papers and all. Fuman had a litter of pups and we kept one i named him Bear and he was the only long haired pup in the bunch which we didnt know till he got a little bigger. As you know they are poof balls when they are small. :P Either way they are beautiful dogs :)

Health risk NEW
by: Anonymous

Anonymous,
You may need to calm down, you sound like you may have high blood-pressure-rage.
Clearly the long-haired Rottweilers tend to be at least as good a companion as their shorthaired breed mates. Congratulations to those fortunate enough to have connected with these rare throwbacks. They can trace their wavy fetlocks to a time before standardization became more important than health.

That was my dog... NEW
by: Anonymous

So much ignorance and misinformation, as usual...I have listened to ignorant comments from day none of my 35-year-ownership of this wonderful breed.

Again, this was my Rottweiler in the photo (he passed in 2009) and he was an agility CH and titled in obedience and tracking as well as being a certified therapy dog and ATTS tested. Yes he was a Rottweiler from known lines and extensive pedigree and yes he was AKC and UKC registered (limited reg) and I got him as a baby puppy from Evrmor/Shalakos lines and loved him until the day he died.

Anyone who attempts to distiguish "German" or "Roman" Rottweilers or even uses these terms is de facto ignorant about the breed. Just ignore those people, they know not of what they type. As is anyone who prattles on about registration without even knowing what that entails.

Jun 16, 2013
Just some info NEW
by: Anonymous

Although the long hair disqualifies them from being registered it doesn't mean that it isnt full blooded. The long hair comes from a recessive trait that is generally seen more in the German/Roman heritage lines. Its just like traits that humans pass, the trait could be passed for generations before it pairs with the right one from the other dog making a long haired pup. There is nothing wrong with it unless you are wanting a AKC registered rottie that you can show... it makes no difference to how they act or anything. I have one and he's amazing, I do get him shaved tho because his coat is so thick and he looks just like a short hair rottie.

Long Hair Rotties Temperment NEW
by: Dawn Struble

I have written before, Titan from Iowa, which is why only one shaving a year, except for his hind legs which looked like the feathering of a golden retreiver. He was the town greeter, no need for a leash he stayed with me unless a human was around, then he had to go greet them, squirrel, rabbit or cat I could stop him. But humans had to pet him. It got to be a joke and everyone knew him. He made alot of friends. Its very lonely walking without my little boy who was 152 lbs at his heaviest, 110 lbs before steriods for allergies, and 132 for years and at the time of his death. Pro Pac was the best food for his allergies and my children who have 2 german shepards, one doberman and one boxer, all are one PRO PAC and look amazing.

by: Christin

i forgot to mention, Tessa has the best personality of any of her siblings, or most other Rotts I have met. she is what i like to call " stupid happy". She has a permanent smile, and is constantly wagging her butt. She has been the easiest dog to train. She is 3.5 years old, and I have never heard her growl at anything, ever. everyone and everything is her best friend, according to her :) She is a ball of energy, and a bit ADD, but I definitely made the best choice in keeping her :) Extra friendliness seems to be a common trait of long hairs. For this reason, I wish they were breedable within the registry.. Maybe we could change the ignorant stigma against Rotties if more dogs with their personality were available..

Long Haired Rottweilers. NEW
by: Marie

I have been raising wonderful healthy Rottweilers for 25 years now. This is my first experience with long haired puppies. I was unaware of the existance of this coat and thought my puppies would lose it once they shed their puppy coat. Before I realized what they were I already found a home for my male puppy. i kept the female. She is one of the most wonderful dogs in this breed I have ever had. She's sweet, gentle, huge I might add. Not as bullheaded as some of the other Rotts. I love her. I feel anyone who wishes to experience these wonderful dogs should have that opportunity. I feel the term unethical should apply to the mixed breeds such as morkie-poo's and so forth. When I was a kid...mutts were free! To view my female go to www.camarrrorottweilers.webs.com

Long hair rotti NEW
by: Dog lover

Hello,
Awhile back at a job site a rotti came to us and the next day again, so we took him in and no one knew whose it was. He weights 140pds. He's a beast! Very kind! Everyone loves him! I was always confused that he had long hair and kinda reminded me of a St. Bernard. But he was clearly rotti and cropped tail already. So reading this I guess there is such thing. My vet checked him out and said he was neutered. I got a Doberman that's a show breed. And to my surprise she was prego. So confused because no way, he was neutered. Apparently the vet was wrong and wasn't so know I have 10 pups. Now I'm going to see if any has long hair.

long hair rottweiler NEW
by: Dawn Struble

I got a very cute fuzzy puppy in 2002. This would be my forth rottweiler. By 9 months of age it was quite clear his hair just kept growing. I called from where I got him and asked if any of the other pups had long hair, I was told no. Research at the time said it was a recessive gene from long ago. He did have some serious allergies. I figured that was from the long hair. As I read that is not the consensus. He was well mannered and kind. We absolutely would get another. I do not think you can tell they are long haired when puppies but the new DNA test would be fantastic. We also shaved ours every spring he was much more comfortable. He lived almost 11 years with old age as his cause of death. If I could have cloned him I would have without the allergies. RIP Titan

Long-haired Rottweilers NEW
by: Anonymous

These long-coated Rottweilers may hold one of the keys to strengthening the breed.
Many of the health problems and weaknesses in dog breeds come from an arrogance in unnatural selection...breeding for desired traits without an abiding care for the genetic diversity with which all animals naturally improve their immune systems, adaptability, performance, and overall health.
The same throwback traits which cause the long coat may be connected with traits that can help the breed ...and maybe they are actually better than the vaunted standard.

It is not necessarily the fault of "bad" breeders - as stated, this dog came from an extremely reputable breeder but in 2000 there were no DNA tests to determine whether sire and/or dam carried the recessive gene for a long coat. Both his sire and dam were beautiful, multi-titled and show-quality Rottweilers with perfectly correct coats - there was no way to know that the recessive gene for the rough coat existed at the time.

Now there is, thanks in small part by my dog who contributed DNA to an MSU study that identified the gene and developed a test for it. :)

Long Haired Rottie NEW
by: Anonymous

Long hair on a rottie is NOT something that is bred for, as it is not the standard. These types of dogs are typically produced by unethical breeders, who are looking to turn a quick buck, with little emphasis on good breeding practices.

Yes, he was a strong, strong dog (mentally and physically) and had a true, steady, job-oriented Rottweiler temperament.

That was my dog NEW
by: carina

That was Cooper and YES he was a pure bred Rottweiler with a (limited) AKC registration. An Evrmor U R The One (call name Duke) son. Dam a Shalako Rottweiler. Google kennel names & see these are most definitely reputable.

He was also an agility champion, titled in obedience and a TDI therapy dog. Best dog I ever owned: smart, wise, strong, strong personality. Coat was a nuisance to keep up, though it looked stunning and he was a real head turner! He died of bone cancer in 2008. :(

What is it with the long hairs? My Max is 119 lbs and is also a gentle giant with a wonderful disposition. Got him free from someone who claimed they didn't have time for him. Their loss!

Long Haired Rottweiler NEW
by: Paul Courville

I have a beautiful rottweiler girlie girl named Lola, she's three... I thought it was about time that she had a live-in playmate so I found a beautiful 11 month old male at a local Rottweiler rescue. I thought it was odd that his coat was a TINY bit longer than Lola's but now at 15 months old it's about 3 inches long and he is the smartest Rottweiler I've ever seen.. He is a little bit spoiled (aren't they all?) cute as can be and he's a very gentle giant of around 100+lbs and that damn hair still feels like puppy fuzz rather than anything else and he is as handsome as any boy can be... Long hair on a Rottweiler IS a non-standard trait, but then again my long haired boy Rocko is well above the "standard" in intelligence, gentleness, energy and attitude.

We have just had a litter 2girls 1boy. The Girls are short/standard coat and the boy is a long hair. Both Parents are canadian kennel club / American Kennel Club registered and both have dna cert, so imagine the surprise whn this beautiful fuzzy boy showed up. He is wonderful gentle with his mouth always watching you and ready to play and oh yah he is gorgeous. He can not be bred but is registered with ckc. I can't wait to see him grow up.

Max came to us from people in Maryland who claimed they did not have time for him; their loss! He has THE most wonderful dis position, I wish I could clone him. He is a gentle giant, very light on his feet but does not realize how big he is. He was originally found in D.C.

my long hair NEW
by: Matty

My first rotti female ended up being long hair. She was purchased from a reputable breeder. After doing research, it is a recessive gene.

She was the most loving and devoted dog i ever had. Unfortunately at age 8, i had to put her down because she had bone cancer.

RIP Bear....

rare rottweiler NEW
by: Girish

Sue - you have one more photo to add in your RARE rottweilers section :D


few options which can result in this

1) a recessed gene - may be the other pups from same litter may not be same and with short coats

2) mix breeding - any another breed mix up along the blood lines. a tibetan mastiff combination with rotty :D
