My New Little Rottie Baby

by Wendy
(Clare, MI)

This is my first Rotti puppy, I had adopted a pretty adult girl, but this is my first baby so I am learning all I can.

He has a tiny little white spot on his chest, someone on a forum told me that was bad. I am not going to breed or show, is it bad?

Sue from A Love Of Rottweilers…. no, it’s not ‘bad’ to have a white spot on his chest. If it’s more than a few hairs it’s considered a fault when it comes to showing, but for a pet it’s nothing to worry about. It’s not terribly unusual, and you can learn more about coat variations and why they happen on my Red Rottweiler page.

He’s adorable and I wish you the best of luck with him!

cosmetic fault
by: Girish

As been answered to one member about the importance of pedigree

selecting a good pedigree and buying litter out of good combination help you to be certain the health and structure of a pup to some extend.

even a very good combinations litter can have cosmetic faults.

these cosmetic faults are results of recessed genes. WHICH HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH the health and working ability of your rotty.

cosmetic faults are important if you are considering to show your pup or breed.

list of few cosmetic faults
1) white or error in markings
2) Pink Mouth
3) loose skin , long coat
4) tail (ring, kink etc)
5) underbite / over bite

such things can even happen after you selecting from selected good pedigrees. even the genetical combination within the same litter some time vary and have diff. output.
