The German Shepherd Rottweiler mix is a mixed breed of the German Shepherd and the Rottweiler. This dog breed uses a few different nicknames, such as the Rottie Shepherd, Rottweiler Shepherd, Shepweiler, Rotten Shepherd, or the Shottie. It’s unknown when this crossbreed came to be, but it originated in the United States. This hybrid is used for many purposes, such as a companion dog, working dog, and sporting dog. However, this crossbreed makes an excellent family companion dog with proper training.

For example, the German Shepherd Rottweiler mix is loyal and affectionate with its family members. Also, they’re great around young children, other dogs, and new people. However, they need early socialization and training to get along well with strangers truly. They’re a great watchdog and will bark to alert you if something or someone comes near your home. In addition, this dog breed can be protective and make a great guard dog. But, on the other hand, if they’re trained to do so, they can become aggressive, which might cause problems.

German Shepherd Rottweiler Mix – A Protective Dog

German Shepherd Rottweiler mixes are medium to large-sized dogs. For instance, males can grow to be about 22 to 27 inches tall and weigh between 77 and 115 pounds. On the other hand, females can grow to be about 20 to 23 inches tall and weigh between 75 and 113 pounds. In addition, this dog breed will have a medium dense coat that won’t require too much grooming. However, they’ll shed a lot, so you’ll want to brush their coat at least once or twice a week to keep it clean. In addition, they have high energy levels that require at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day.

This dog breed can inherit certain health issues from both parent breeds. So, you’ll need to bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup. This mixed breed has an average lifespan of about ten to 13 years with proper care.
