Rottweiler puppy with spot in his chest and his leg

by moira

Hi I have a 3 month old rottweiler with white spot in his chest and a little white spot in one of his leg. He is purebred and he gained 15 pound in one month.

Just wondering why he had this spots and is that normal? I just read an article that rottweiler with white spot has an unique characteristics.

what for characteristic it it?

Hi Moira
Some Rottweiler pups do have white patches, or spots usually on their chests or toes, but they can occur elsewhere.

Sometimes people think this means that the pup is not purebred, but that is not the case. Purebred puppies can have these markings because they are a genetic trait passed down through generations.

The reasons behind it go back to the very early days of the breed and you can learn all about them on this page… White Patches On Rottweiler Puppies

I’m not exactly sure what special characteristics you have been told about, but I have heard suggestions that Rotties with these markings are more easily trained or willing to work. In my personal experience the majority of Rottweilers are among the easiest dogs to train because they are very calm and focused and eager to please. I don’t have personal experience of training a dog with a white patch/spot so can’t say if there is any merit to these rumors!

Hope this helps answer your question, best of luck with your pup.
