Rottweiler and weiner dog mix
A rotty is a breed of dog originating in the United States, but which was not recognized by the American Kennel Club until 2009. The name comes from the dog's habit of digging and thus its common nickname of 'digger'. The rotty is a strong and athletic breed. It is the "biggest" in its size category and is well known for its "big heart". It is popular as a guard dog and is widely regarded for being an ideal companion dog.
The rotty is typically an all-black dog with a brownish-black body and a white undercoat, though any color variations or mix are acceptable. Other colors of dogs may have a different structure in their coat that can affect a Rottweiler.
The name "Rotty" was officially adopted by The Rottweiler Club of America, Inc. in November 2004. The breed was formed in the 1960s by combining the Rottweiler and German Shepherd, and is based upon the German wirehred Rottweiler, first appearing in the United States in 1938. The American Rottweiler is similar to the European wirehred German Shepherd, also known as the American wirehred sheepdog, but less prone to the same health problems as the German Shepherd. German shepherds are a working dog and are used extensively as pet dogs, police dogs, or military dogs. They are usually used to detect explosives, firearms, missing children, and guard homes and business. The Rottweiler is used primarily as a guard dog.
Wirehred Rottweilers, also known as German Shepherd or American Shepherds, were first brought to the United States in 1898. In that year, a purebred wirehred Rottweiler with a pedigree was purchased by the German government. He was named "Spatz" and was known as "the last of the great Rottweilers".
The German Shepherd was popularized in the United States by the film The Shepherd of the Hills, which starred Rin Tin Tin and premiered in 1928. This popularity continued with the release of The General in 1939, the first of many Rin Tin Tin movies. By the mid-1940s, the German Shepherd was widely used in the United States as a law enforcement dog. Law enforcement officers often used the German Shepherd because of its intelligence, stamina, and loyalty to its handler.
In the mid-1960s, the American Society of Dog Trners and the German Shepherd Club of America (GSCA) became aware of a new breed being developed in Germany by a breeder named Helmut Fiedler. The new breed was named "Rotweiler" (pronounced ROTE-lee-ver) and the GSCA and ASDT agreed to cooperate in the creation of a new breed. By the 1970s, Rotweiler had become widely used as a family pet, while the German Shepherd remned popular with law enforcement and other dog trners. The two breeds are still often used together, and can be easily identified by differences in conformation and appearance. There are many similarities between the two breeds. German Shepherds are generally larger and more powerful than Rotweilers, but have similar dispositions and behaviors. German Shepherds are bred for good looks and "working ability", while Rotweilers are bred to be sturdy, loyal, and energetic. Both have a reputation as "workhorses" and "bully breeds", with a reputation for guarding property and livestock.
In 1977, the first American Kennel Club (AKC) club was established in the United States, named the American Rottweiler Club (ARRC), which is now known as the Rottweiler Club of America (RCA). In 1990, the German Kennel Club (Große Deutsche Rottweiler Club) in Germany awarded the German Kennel Club's Canine World Champion title to the German Rottweiler as it recognized the popularity of the breed in the United States. In 2002, both clubs jointly organized the United Rottweiler Club of America (URCA), as a nonprofit club to promote the welfare of Rottweilers in the United States.
