i do think i read somewhere about genetic flaws and i do know that any markings of white on the rottweiler disqualifies them as a purebred to the AKC, however in all honesty i believe that the white patch is most likely a sign that maybe somewhere on the family tree there was a mutt thrown in there. i could be wrong but that is my theory. there is nothing wrong with mutts, i have one myself, the funny thing is he has a white patch on his chest as well...he is a rottweiler and a mastiff mix...i also have a purebred rottie and she is beautiful, no markings of white anywhere.

I never saw a Rottweiler with white marks or spots - but I do know that it happens sometimes even in very pure bloodlines with nice pedigree - no "mutts" as the above user called them.
It's somewhat rare - but it happens despite the pedigree and bloodlines.
Some kennels sacrifice puppies and hide this fact but a few others spay/neutralize and donate the puppy.
A Rottweiler's Pedigree is a document and even with white marks or spots if the dog came from a registered litter (male+female with pedigree and breeding permission), the dog will be able to have the Pedigree but won't be acceptable for breeding because having a Pedigree doesn't always means meeting the Breed Standard.
The breed standard does not accept white spots.

If you have none of these titles on your pedigree it's not a purebreed Rottweiler so have a look at a real pedigree from the germans....(Int.Ch. ES'82 BS'80'81 KS'80 Dingo vom Schwaiger Wappen SchH III FH Gekort bis EzA HD-) at pawvillage.com
