Don't get me started on why most people who own dogs should never breed a dog. It would take too long.
This article I cited above is a discussion on how the shoulder should look in the rottweiler. It gives great examples of good and bad shoulders and why they are good or bad. I found it very interesting.
Since Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs are said to be the forerunners of the Rottweiler breed many many years ago, you can see a lot of similarities in the breeds.
Yes, Dutch is a Champion, he is officially CH Timberline Double Dutch, CGC, NWPD. He is beautiful and has a really great rear. Don't we all want that in our men?
And No, I am not a breeder. I leave that to those who know dog structure and genetics like the back of their hand.
There is nothing sadder than an owner who loves their dog so much and is having to make decisions that could have been prevented by careful breeding.
I hate back yard breeders.......can you tell?
