|Well, he might look more like a min-pin if his ears were docked. But, that's a pain in the butt, and I don't think he's purebred, anyway.
I'm sorry you got hoodwinked by a disreputable breeder. Tiller is very right. Often, puppies can look like one thing and end up another. That's very common in mixed breed dogs.
Typically, min-pins go for !,000 for a pet quality dog and higher for a show quality dog, so if you thought you got a "bargain" on a purebred, typically it's not really that much of a bargain.
To the person who bought the rotti mix, $400.00 is not much money at all to spend on a dog. I know rescues who charge more for puppies then that, let alone reputable breeders.
I personally wouldn't buy a rott from someone unless they worked their dogs in some way, just because they're so much dog and temperaments can be an issue. That's not even mentioning health issues that can crop up in any large breed dog.
I hope that you decide to keep him and I hope that he feels better soon.
To anyone just reading this thread, please do your reserach. Especially with little toy dogs who are only companions, make sure that your breeder health tests and shows in conformation at the minimum.
The breeder should make you feel like you're very lucky to get a puppy from them, not pushing a puppy at you.
