Rottweiler + Shar Pei


The Rott Pei - a hybrid breed

The Rottweiler and the Shar Pei are two popular dog breeds that have been gaining popularity in recent years. Both breeds are also often bred as mixed breed dogs. The Rottweiler is a strong, loyal and very intelligent dog that can be both a family dog and a guard dog. The Shar Pei is a graceful and confident dog that is also known as a loyal family friend.

A Rottweiler-Shar Pei mix can inherit a balanced nature with a strong bond with its owner. This mixed breed is not only affectionate, but also alert and can help protect the home from intruders. In addition, Rott Peis can also be well accustomed to children. So, they are an ideal choice for families who are looking for a faithful companion.

Possible character traits of the Rott Pei

A new hybrid of the two popular breeds, the Rott Pei is becoming an increasingly popular choice for pet owners. These sociable and loyal dogs can fit into a variety of situations, and their character should not be underestimated.

The Rottweiler is known for its brave and intelligent nature, and the Shar-Pei is an equally loyal and alert friend. This odd pair is often described as robust, playful and alert. In general, these dogs tend to be very laid back, but they are also capable of showing energy and intensity when needed.

Another good trait of the Rott Pei is that they have a high level of endurance, which means they are well suited for regular, long walks and other exercise. They really enjoy being around people and can adapt quickly to new environments and people.

These dogs are often described as protective and territorial, so it is crucial that they are properly trained and socialized from the beginning to ensure that they do not bite anyone. However, they are not the best choice as beginner dogs, as they sometimes appear to be overly reactive to people or pets.

It is characterized by a strong sense of self-confidence, a strong independence and a natural curiosity. With proper training, this can be a very pleasant dog that receives a lot of attention and affection from its owners. These dogs are known to always be ready to play and exercise, so they are a great choice for people who want a lively and energetic dog.

If you're looking for a sociable, intelligent, and fearless companion, this mixed breed can be an excellent choice. With the right training, you can have a loyal friend and protector that will bring you a lifetime of enjoyment.

Breed diseases of the Rott Pei

Rottweiler-Shar Pei mixes are a popular breed of hybrid dogs. These unique dogs are descended from two very different breeds - the powerful Rottweiler and the odd Shar Pei. Although Rottles have become increasingly popular in recent years, it is important to know that they are prone to certain diseases.

One of the most common health problems in Rott Peis is allergic dermatitis. This condition means an allergic reaction of the dog's skin to certain allergens and can cause severe infections. Other possible problems include respiratory problems that may require surgery in severe cases, and various eye conditions. Another common condition is the paw, which can cause inflammation and pain.

They are also prone to skin and digestive disorders such as eczema and stomach ulcers. Similarly, diseases of the oral cavity can occur, especially in the teeth, so regular dental care is required. In addition, many Rottles suffer from bone and joint problems, especially in old age.

Thorough and regular medical monitoring is recommended to protect health. Treatment should be tailored to the specific condition - with a combination of medications, diet and physical therapy.

As a rule, Rott Peis are very healthy, robust dogs, but their owners should be especially vigilant in their care. If you notice any signs of illness, you should contact a veterinarian immediately to prevent symptoms from worsening. With proper care and love, they can live long and happy lives.

This mixed breed is medium sized and muscular. It has a short, rusty brown coat, a broad head with a short, flat muzzle, large, rounded ears and a black nose tip. The tail is bushy on top and narrows towards the bottom.

The Rott Pei has a weight between 25 and 30 kg and a shoulder height of about 50 cm.

What does this mongrel look like?

The coat texture of a Rott Pei is short and dense. Their coat is mostly smooth and shiny, but it can be slightly wiry. They can come in a variety of colors, but the most common color combination is brown with black and reddish brown patches. Some Rottweiler-Shar-Pei mixes also have bright white spots. Typically, they have black eye rings, a dark muzzle, and black ears. Some may also have a purple to lilac-pink hue. Their fur is often thick and double, which provides wonderful thermal insulation. The coat of the Rottweiler-Shar Pei mix can be brushed to prevent matting, but it does not require much maintenance.
