Long haired Rottweilers?

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

I have german imported Rottweilers whom I bred from last June and did produce 1 long haired rottweiler from the litter, yes it was pure bred and yes it is definately long haired. I didn't sell it for any more or less than the others as he was for a pet home. He is healthy large and a fabulous temperamented dog! His new owner does get asked if he is crossed but proudly tells people that no he isn't and is of good quality lines, their was no known history of either my bitch or my dog having the long haired gene, none of their siblings/sires or dams have long coats so have just put it down to a one off thing. They are fabulous dogs whether long or short/standard coated and have a personality and temperament to die for x Once you get a rottweiler I will guarantee no other dog will grab your heart like they do regardless of it's coat length.

Yep, like so many others here, I used to know one. Total sweetheart, played flyball like a champ. As with any long-haired dog, her coat did require a lot more maintenance than most Rotties. I believe she was even trimmed down on occasion, although never shaved.

There are long-haired Mastiffs also... I've known one or two of them as well.

Funny, someone mentioned a "rare breed" and showed me a photo. Turned out to be a Basset Hound with long fur. I googled images and found everything from Bassets with a little feathering to Bassets that looked like they had an American Cocker Spaniel transplant!
And yes it's a matter of 2 recessive genes.

I also found out that all breeds can have a case of dwarfism, which makes a dog look like a Basset Hound mix.

Some breeds are supposed to have long furred versions, they just aren't very popular.
The Weimarainer has a long haired version
The Vizsla has a Wirehaired version.

Any others?

There's always the Chinese Crested naked or powderpuff thing. They occur in the same litter. The powderpuff is from a recessive gene. Wicket(pp) and his brother, Terror(pp), and his sister, Annie (naked) had both naked parents.

I'd love to see a Rotti with a long coat, though I like the standard coat on them, too. I'll have to ask the breeder who grooms my dogs if she's ever ended up with one!

Pepper, there are long haired versions of Whippets, "bear" coat Shar-Peis, and "fluffy" Corgis.

My long haired Rottwiler Cookie is the sweetest dog you will ever meet! She will just run up to you and she will literally give you a hug. She will jump up on you and lick your face!

Work hard; Play- harder.

There is one here on Dogster; his Mom is pretty knowledgeable about the breed and the coat, he's got a new "little sister" that has been tearing up the dog show circuit.

Chessies also have a throwback to a long coat thanks to the Newfoundland that was bred into them while the breed was developing.

If you look into a breeds heritage you can usually figure out where the long coat throwback gene comes from.

I knew about the bear coated Shar Pei, but not about the fluff Corgi or the long fur on whippets.
google search!
