Hi all
Me and my wife have always had rotties and we love them to bits had 4 over the past 15 years and 7 weeks ago we lost our 13 year old jessie that was the last one to go (very very sad day) we both decided not to have anymore due to the heart break of them going.

To cut a long story short we now have 2 bitches (sisters) Dottie & flo that are full pedigree 13 weeks old (bless)

Both doing realy realy well and are both house trained alreaddy (yippee)

Noticed today that one of them had a zigzag pattren on her back.. Strange as I never noticed it before….here’s a photo, sorry it’s a bit blurred it’s not easy holding a 13 week old pup still lol

Hi Lee. I’m sorry for the loss of your previous Rottweilers, I know how hard that is to take. Congratulations on the new additions too, I’m sure they will help heal your hearts. From the photo you’ve attached it simply looks as though this pup has a longer, thicker coat than the other one. Some Rottweilers do have this, it’s a genetic thing and not anything to worry about. I’ve owned Rotties with this type of coat. Hope this helps. I wish you lots of luck with both your little girls ~ Sue
