    Mini Rottweilers

    Oh yeah, you read that right.

    My SO and I were talking about them as a joke because when Porter was a puppy someone asked if he was a mini Rottweiler. So I looked it up, and what do you know, someone is really doing that.

    What are people thinking?

    They are making mini boxers and rottweilers. Both have Pug mixed in.

    They look TOO pug to me! Reading the site, there is no actual Rottweiler in them. My pup Flash is staying on the small size so far but looks better than those do. Her nose is longer (I always say her nose is ALL beagle) and she doesn't have a docked tail. The other morning at sunrise she stood on a snow pile watching geese in the sky and in the morning sunlight she looked very much like a little rottweiler (if her tail was docked). I really wished I had a camera at that split second. She was beautiful and had an amazing stance with her chest puffed out.

    That's so ridiculous. If you want a Rott or a Boxer.. GET A ROTT OR A BOXER. Boxers have enough health issues without mixing them with ANOTHER brachcephalic (??SP??) breed like a pug.

    If you want a smaller breed then pick a smaller breed or go to a shelter and find a mutt with one of the breeds you desire.

    Carlins look kind of like black and tan Puggles.

    They're cute to look at, but I'd never purchase one. I'll just wait till someone else gets tired of theirs!

    My goal in life is to be as good of a person as my dogs think I am.

    There isn't even Rottweiler in the mini rottweilers... ... I... I don't even know what to say. I am gobsmacked.

    At least it looks like they do health testing? They mention OFA and I was able to find what I'm pretty sure is one of their dog's records.

    Re: Mini Rottweilers

    Seriously! Why do people have to make everything "mini"? If you want a small dog there are plenty of toy breeds out there that are adorable!

    If I want a Rotti it sure isn't because it is miniature.

    I saw a few ads on my local classifieds a few weeks back "Mini Great Dane only 15 lbs" WHAT!? "Mini Boxer", "Mini Mastiff Puppies" it just out of control...

    Re: Mini Rottweilers

    How stupid. Even if you feel the need to create another mutt breed then why call it a "mini Rottweiler" when it is so clearly NOT Rottweiler in anyway. The lady got all huffy about negative comments too. She says "what if I want a Rottweiler but don't want a big dog?" Um, a pug mix isn't going to fit the bill of a Rottweiler anyway you look at it. Just because it has similar color pattern doesn't make it a Rottweiler.

    I thin the dog is cute but I think all dogs are cute in some way. I just think it is sad that it is the result of a greedy money grubbing idiot that claims to be working to create a new breed.





    Do they really look like the same breed to you? BIG difference in the head, for sure. I suspect the temperament/personality would be a HUGE let down if people liked the temperament of the Rottweiler.

    I mentioned in another thread that i saw a link to mini Saint Bernards...I just don't get it. If you want a mini something or other, get a breed that has varying sizes, such as schnauzers, poodles, etc

    They are some good looking dogs, if I were her I'd dropped the whole mini Rott thing and go with the 'Carlin Pinscher' name to develop the breed and develop the breed the RIGHT way of course I'd also drop the whole mini boxer thing, if I wanted something like that I'd go with a Frenchie.

    Well, to be fair, the 'official homepage' for the Carlin Pinscher doesn't claim they're mini-Rotts, it just mentions that many people see a resemblance.

    Re: Mini Rottweilers

    everything is either a "mini" or an "-oodle" now days with a not so tiny price tag. i think it's truly horrifying that people are just picking and choosing breeds to create some goofy, over-priced, defective puppies.

    the truly sad thing is that these people are all but running puppy mills. i had an in-depth emailing session when i spoke with a breeding selling 'mini goldens' and 'sheltie-doodles' and she refused to even allow me to come on her property because the living conditions were obviously poor.

    it's so terribly sad. the worst part is that most buyers don't even see this as a bad thing. these so-called breeders even claim their concoctions are healthier than the purebreeds. ugh.

    Yeah honestly, she does do health testing. Have to give them that. It also seems they place the dogs already spayed/neutered.

    I dunno, just some things to think about.
