Author: admin, 21.01.2014The Pitweiler is a mixed breed dog, which combines two purebred dogs, a Pit Bull Terrier and a Rottweiler.
Other names used for this hybrid designer dog: Pittweiler, Bullrott, Prott, Rottie Pit, Rottbull, Rott-n-Pitt or RottenPit. Longevity wise, the Pit Bull has a bit of an advantage, with a lifespan which is usually between 12 and 15 years, while the Rottweiler sits somewhere at 10-12 years. These breeds are of different sizes, so the mixed dog that results from them can vary in size quite a bit. Noise wise, the one that is more likely to bark is the Rottweiler, while the Pit Bull is usually not the type to do it often.
Despite their reputation, the Pit Bulls are more likely to be friendly with a stranger, while Rottweilers are much more reserved around them.
Both breeds are considered dominant, especially the Rottweiler, so make sure that your Pitweiler goes through obedience training and that you do it while it’s still a puppy. Both breeds that make up this mix require a lot of daily exercise and ideally a small yard should be available to them. I have a pitweiler who i rescued from a publix parking lot and she isbout 2 and about 70 lbs.
The end result is the Pitweiler, a dog that will take on characteristics from both parents, somewhat unpredictably, so the resulting dog can look like either of them, or have a combination of traits from both sides. The Rottweiler is actually one of the most intelligent dogs in the world, and the Pit Bull is not a bad breed from that point of view either.
The smaller breed is the Pit Bull Terrier, which weighs 30 to 55 pounds, with a wither height of 12 to 24 inches.
The larger Rottweiler has a height of 22 to 27 inches and weighs between 50 and 115 pounds.
What you do with your dog depends on your preferences and on whether the Pitweiler looks more like a Rott or a Pitt.
