Like all puppies, Rottweiler puppies are adorable and great to cuddle with.  However, like all puppies, they grow into dogs, but unlike some puppies, Rottweilers grow up to be big dogs.  Don't get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with big dogs, if you are prepared for their growth.  When fully grown, a male Rottweiler can up to 27 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh in at a robust 130 pounds.  While the female version will be slightly smaller, she may weigh in at up to 115 pounds which is definitely a formidable size dog when compared to many human females.  Now, if you are prepared for this and know what you are getting into, you will be choosing a breed of dog that has many redeeming qualities.

For the most part, Rottweiler puppies grow up to be great family pets.  Of all the dog breeds you can choose, a Rottweiler is in the top percentage of breeds that are the easiest to train.  They are very active dogs and are best kept by owners that are active also.  A properly trained Rottweiler will grow to be an obedient and loyal companion and also will be very protective of other members in the pack.

These animals are like some other breeds that have gotten a bad reputation over the years.  They are extremely powerful dogs and their appearance is very menacing to lots of people.  However, owners of this breed are quick to point out their positive qualities and express the opinion that they make wonderful pets and require no more supervision than any other dog.  They express this opinion due to the fact that they believe Rottweiler puppies seem to be as laid back as any puppy breed out there and they tend to bark much less than other breeds of dogs.

As with any breed of dog, Rottweiler puppies have some inherent health issues that you need to consider.  Like any large dog, canine hip dysplasia is a genetic condition commonly found in this breed.  Some other conditions affecting the Rottweiler are bloat, eye issues, spinal cord disorders, and Parvo.  Things you can do to help prevent these conditions is pretty much the same as it is when you consider the health of any dog.  Proper feeding habits, lots of exercise along with regular veterinarian visits for shots and checkups will help keep your dog in good health and also discover any developing health issues in their early stages of their development.

So, if you are looking for a puppy that will definitely turn into a full grown dog, and become a faithful and loving member of your family, selecting from a nice litter of Rottweiler puppies could be a great choice. If other dog owners are to be believed you and your family will be happy with your new companion for many, many years to come.
