The Rottle isn’t actually a purebred dog — as you may have guessed — but a cross between the Rottweiler and the standard Poodle.
Many people love Poodle mixes as they assume they’ll be allergy-friendly, but beware! Although it’s true that the Poodle coat doesn’t shed, you may end up with a dog that has the Rottweiler coat. If one parent is a Rottweiler and one is a Poodle, there’s a 50/50 chance! You should beware of any breeder who tells you they’re all hypoallergenic — and wary of breeders in general. Doodle breeders are often unethical to make a profit due to Doodles’ status as a designer breed, so be careful.
They are undoubtedly beautiful dogs however. They often have the curly, dense coat of the Poodle with the Rottweiler coloring. You can expect your dog to be fairly large, since neither of the breeds that came together to make it are small.
The Rottle – A Great People Dog
The personality of a Rottle is hard to predict, since these breeds have different traits. Your puppy may take traits from either parent! They have quite a bit of energy to burn, considering both of these breeds are fairly high-energy — especially the Poodle. However, they’re also very intelligent, and the plus side is that they’ll learn very easily. If you’re consistent and patient in training, you’ll find that you have a great dog on your hands.
They love their people, but one thing to watch out for is the guarding instinct that can come from the Rottweiler side of the family. It may put them on high-alert and make them wary of strangers at times. Plenty of socialization when they’re young and good interactions with strangers can reassure them that people are good, and that they don’t need to worry as much about it.
