My Rottweiler Champ
Hi I just want to know what you think of my Rottweiler Champ he is a pleasure to have love everything about him.
He looks perfect to me except for his height he seems a little short from other Rottweilers I've seen in pics. Let me know what you think of him overall his head, size just everything thanks.
He is a year old in the pics now he is about 13 months.
It's very difficult to evaluate a dog from photos, especially ones where a dog isn't 'stacked' correctly - you know, the way they stand for shows.
But, from your photos Champ looks to be very well put together. He's got a great head and although it's not very clear as to his eyes and ear set they both look excellent. His color is good and it seems as though he's got a good, heavy bone structure. I'm guessing he has European bloodlines.
I don't think he's short at all, he looks very well proportioned. Rottweilers aren't supposed to be huge dogs, they're a working breed and dogs who are too big or heavy couldn't fulfill the working requirements of the breed. According to the ADRK Rottweiler Breed Standard a full grown male Rottie should ideally be between 25 and 26" tall (measured at the shoulder). But anywhere from 24 to 26.7" is acceptable for show.
Personally I love the shorter, stockier 'look' but every well-bred Rottweiler is stunning to look at regardless... and their personalities just make them the ultimate dog I think :) Good luck with him.
