The 14 Popular Rottweiler Mixes

1. Rottsky (Rottweiler x Siberian Husky Mix)

Rottweiler and Siberian Husky

The Rottsky is a highly active dog that requires plenty of exercise and a job to keep them from misbehaving. This dog is perfect for someone with a large family or several acres of land that they can run on to burn off their excess energy. They usually display the colors available in either breed, and they keep the wide head and broad muzzle of the Rottweiler.

2. Golden Rottie (Golden Retriever x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and Golden Retriever

The Golden Rottie usually retains the body style and love of swimming from their Golden Retriever parent, but you will notice the unmistakable Rottweiler eyes. This hybrid is extremely friendly and loves to be around people.

3. German Rottie (German Shepherd x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and German Shepherd

The German Rottie usually retains the overall appearance of the Rottweiler, but it can vary considerably from dog to dog. Their coat can have several colors, including black, brown, red, grey, white, and cream. They’re calm and independent dogs that can become aggressive if you don’t properly socialize them as puppies. However, they love to cuddle and often sit on your lap at the end of the day.

4. Borderweiler (Border Collie x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and Border Collie

The Borderweiler is one of the newer mixed breeds, and there isn’t much we know about them yet. However, they’re excellent watchdogs because they retain their parents’ intelligent and alert nature. In addition, they have a medium-length coat that often resembles the Rottweiler, and they have plenty of energy. They’re ideal for active families.

5. Rotthound (Basset Hound x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and Bassett Hound

The Rotthound is an interesting mix that really brings out the tracking capabilities of both parents. They can weigh as much as 100 pounds with a coat that’s available in many varieties. They’re generally a loving breed that enjoys showing affection, but they can also become stubborn.

6. Boxweiler (Rottweiler x Boxer Mix)

Rottweiler and Boxer

The Boxweiler is an attractive shorthair mix that is easy to maintain and requires very little grooming. They can weigh more than 100 pounds and display several colors, including black, white, fawn, and brown. They can be stubborn and difficult to train, but they make a great watchdog and are affectionate with family members.

7. Rotterman (Doberman Pinscher x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and Doberman Pinscher

The Rotterman is a strong breed that makes an excellent guard dog. They’re intelligent enough to work with law enforcement and are usually  affectionate toward family members, especially children. Rotterman dogs usually weigh more than 100 pounds, and you can find them in red, blue, fawn, brown, and rust colors.

8. Weimerrott (Weimaraner x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and Weimaraner

The Weimerrott is another short-haired dog with a muscular build. The fur often appears faded, which is how the dog gets the nickname of “gray ghost.” They’re enormous pups and usually weigh close to 130 pounds. They require plenty of early socialization to keep them from becoming aggressive toward strange dogs.

9. Rotthuahua (Chihuahua x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and Chihuahua

The Rotthuahua is smaller than many of the other mixes on this list, and on occasion, they can be tiny if they take after the Chihuahua parent more than the Rottweiler. These dogs are better suited to an experienced owner because the Chihuahua parent can cause this breed to be stubborn and difficult to train. However, with the proper training, Rotthuahuas make wonderful pets.

10. Pugweiler (Pug x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and Pug

The Pugweiler is one of the smaller breeds we looked at so far, and they rarely exceed 20 pounds. They shed much less than the Rottweiler parents but usually display their color pattern. The Pugweiler is exceptionally obedient. They are loyal and affectionate but can become aggressive toward other animals if not properly socialized as a puppy.

11. Bullweiler (American Bulldog x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and American Bulldog

The Bullweiler is a large dog that often weighs more than 100 pounds but is very loving and friendly. Their short, stiff fur is easy to maintain by brushing it every few days to spread the natural oils and bring out the shine. Early socialization will help the Bullweiler get along better with family members and other pets.

12. Peiweiler (Shar Pei x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and Shar Pei

The Peiweiler is another large dog, but this is one of the friendlier mixes. They have a large body with a square head. The coat will be brown, black, gold, or tan, and the eyes will be dark and round. Most owners comment that their Peiwelers are calm and patient, making them excellent companions for children.

13. New Rottland (Newfoundland x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and Newfoundland

The New Rottland is an interesting hybrid that enjoys being around family members. They have an expressive face and usually have their tongue hanging out. While they look intimidating, they rarely become aggressive and enjoy playing with children who will give them the kind of attention they crave.

14. Rottmatian (Dalmatian x Rottweiler Mix)

Rottweiler and Dalmatian

The Rottmatian is a unique pup with a tall, slim body that can often weigh 100 pounds. They make an excellent watchdog but prefer to play with children if any are available. They’re smart and easy to train, but they don’t like being left alone, and doing so usually causes them to become destructive.


As you can see, several Rottweiler mixes are available, and new ones come out every day. If you are looking for a new pet, we recommend the Golden Rottie or the Pugweiler. Both dogs are incredibly affectionate and will make great pets for your home without barking a lot or having a tendency to get into mischief. However, if you have experience and patience, we’re sure you would be happy with any dogs on this list.

We hope you have enjoyed reading this list and found a few hybrids you hadn’t heard of before. If we have helped you choose your next pet, please share these Rottweiler mixes on Facebook and Twitter.
