Rottweilers, range from about 22″ to as much as 27″ in shoulder height. They may weigh as little as 85 Lb. but they can weigh as much as 120 Lb. and occasionally slightly more than 120 Lb. They are considered a “very large” dog, and they can be very bulky in size. The Rottweiler is classed as a “working” breed by the American Kennel Club.
Rottweilers generally live 7 to 10 years, but 12 to 13 years of age are occasionally seen in this breed. Hip dysplasia and other disorders are often seen, especially in purebred dogs from unscrupulous breeders.
