Roxy the Rottweiler
She is 5 months old in the pics.
But my question is someone told me she has an interesting face. I kind of think the same but i'm not sure exactly what it is.
Would you call her face "typey " as they call it?
Or what is it about her face that looks a bit different? Thanks in advance
Great photos, Roxy is looking good at 5 months, she's going to be a big girl I think.
Interesting question, and you're right her face is unusual to some degree, and I've studied it quite a bit but it's difficult to put my finger on what is making it different.
A photo from the side showing her head profile would have helped but it's very difficult to use photos to judge something like this (or size/breed type etc.)
I would guess her 'look' is due to a distinctive appearance in her bloodlines, some dogs pass on very recognizable features - and these are neither good or bad, it's just genetics.
It looks as though her muzzle may be upturned just a little towards the nose and her nostrils are maybe a little larger than average. I think the difference lies in her muzzle shape/width/depth but I'm just not exactly sure!
She definitely has a 'look' which I have seen before and is strong in some bloodlines. 'Typey' is possibly a good description.
She's still a puppy and has nice strong features for one so young, I would guess that she'll 'grow into them' and as she gets bigger and heavier her face will change some, maybe becoming less distinctive, maybe not. Either way is fine because I think she's a nice looking pup who's going to be a very strong and good-looking adult. Best of luck with her.
