Hello all. I am new here as of this morning. We adopted a pup a few weeks ago! His name is Gator and we were told that his mom was a German Shepherd, but they weren't sure about Dad. After taking him to his first vet visit, the vet suggested that he Dad may have been a Rottweiler. I have no experience with Rottweiler Pups, so I was hoping someone here could say yay or nay on the Rottweiler part? He will be 12 weeks on Thursday and has no sign of he ears standing on their own. I know that not all GSD's will have standing ears, but his aren't even the giant GSD size! laugh out loud He is an absolute sweety. My kids love him and he is a great addition to our family.

Not sure why my profile pic isn't showing up. *maybe because I am Brand spanking new* But, I did add some to his doggy profile!

It is possible that could be mixed with rotti. But you really can't tell until they get older. We had a puppy an at 4 months old we thought she was a rotti. She was a german shepherd mix. We think she was mixed with a doberman. If you look at my profile you will see a picture of Hailey. You will also see a picture of Harley she was a bullmastiff/rotti mix. Please post more pictures when the pup gets older and maybe we can take a better guess.

I love your pics very cute puppy.
