German Shepherd Rottweiler Mix

German Shepherd Rottweiler Mix

INTRODUCTION

The German Shepherd-Rottweiler mix is a cross between the German Shepherd and Rottweiler breeds of dog. E energetic, loyal and as eager to play as they are to cuddle, these mixed breed puppies inherit some of the best qualities of their two parents.German Shepherd-Rottweiler mixes go by several different names, such as Rottweiler Shepherd or Rotten Shepherd, a misnomer for how affectionate and fun-loving this mixed breed can be. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed-breed dogs in breed-specific shelters and rescues, so remember to adopt. These fluffy pups make excellent family dogs; however, they are best suited to homes that have access to a yard and space. However, they can also make great companions for active city dwellers. If you want a fun, child-friendly dog that loves to both play and take care of its family, the German Shepherd Rottweiler Mix may be the right dog for you. AniMall24 recommends a large and spacious crate for your German Shepherd Rottweiler mix to have a place to rest and relax. You should also buy a dog toy to help burn off your puppy’s high energy.

HIGHLIGHTS

German Shepherd-Rottweiler mixes are mixed breed dogs, which means that they are not pure breeds like their parents, the German Shepherd or the Rottweiler. The main colours of Rottweilers are black, grey, white, red, tan and cream. Make sure your dog gets at least one good half-hour to hour-long walk a day, with some active play sessions and shorter walks mixed in.German Shepherd-Rottweiler mixes can be fun playmates for children of all ages, but this large dog could accidentally hurt younger children with what was intended to be playtime. Train your dog not to jump from the start. German Shepherd-Rottweiler mixes are quite friendly with other dogs, provided they are introduced slowly and properly. When it comes to cats, your Rottie Shepherd may have a chase instinct.

HISTORY

The mixing of German Shepherd and Rottweiler may have existed naturally over the years, but designer breeders began intentionally mixing Rottweilers and German Shepherds in the late 1990s, probably in North America. Breeders wanted to mix the two parent breeds, both of German descent, to combine their loyalty, strength and intelligence. They continued to create German Shepherd-Rottweiler mixes as demand for puppies increased. Consider adoption if you decide this is the breed for you. Check local shelters, look for German Shepherd-Rottweiler mix rescues, or check with breed-specific Rottweiler or German Shepherd rescues, as they sometimes take in mixed breed dogs and find homes for them.
