33 Incredible Rottweiler Mixes For Every Rottie Lover 

33 Incredible Rottweiler Mixes For Every Rottie Lover 

Sharing is caring!

Whenever someone mentions Rottweilers, you know things are about to get interesting. Rotties are truly some of the most versatile big dogs that can do it all: working, herding, guarding, cuddling, playing, and running. Whatever you put your mind to, a Rottweiler can effortlessly do.

But, what about Rottweiler mixes? Are these hybrid dogs just as versatile, intelligent, and athletic as purebred Rottweilers?

Oh, yes, they are! Rottweiler mixes are intelligent dogs that inherit Rottweiler parent’s strength and loyalty. But, these pooches also take some of the best qualities of other parent breeds in the mix.

Here at PupVine, we are going to show you what qualities Rottweiler mixes have and whether or not they make good family dogs.

What Is A Rottweiler Mix?

A Rottweiler mix is a hybrid pup that usually has two purebred parent dog breeds: a Rottweiler, and another pure breed like the Siberian Husky, for example.

This is usually called an F1 Rottweiler mix, which means that both purebred parents are crossed.

But, a Rottweiler mix can also be an interesting combination of a purebred dog (the Rottweiler) and a mixed breed (the Cavapoo, or any other crossbreed).

Now that we know the basics about Rottweiler mixes, it is time to show you these incredible hybrid pups!

1. Golden Rottie

Parent Breeds: Golden Retriever and Rottweiler

Oldie Goldies make each canine cross interesting and super-friendly. That is exactly how a Golden Retriever x Rottweiler mix is described.

For reference, aspiring Golden Rottie dog owners can find answers to how big these mixed puppies are going to grow through Golden Retriever and Rottweiler growth charts.

Besides their big bodies, Golden Rotties are colored in some of the most beautiful shades of their Golden Retriever parent.

2. Rottsky

Parent Breeds: Siberian Husky and Rottweiler

Meet one of the bold and unique Siberian Husky mixes – the Rottsky. Not only does this beauty of a mixed breed inherit the mesmerizing blue eyes of the Husky parent, but it also inherits the beautiful Rottweiler coat colors.

The Rottsky is an outgoing pup, but it can be a bit reserved around strangers which makes it a good guard dog. The Rottsky howls like a Husky and barks like a Rottie!

The only downside of owning a Rottsky is the amount of shedding from the Siberian Husky parent breed.

3. Labrottie

Parent Breeds: Labrador Retriever and Rottweiler

Everyone can agree that Labrador Retriever dogs and Rottweilers make the best canine companions. Well, turns out that Labrador Retriever mixes are also some of the best dogs around.

The Labrottie is a good dog with a very likable personality. It is kind to other humans as well as other animals, but only if properly socialized.

As for its maintenance, the Labrottie will do well with regular brushing to remove dirt and debris, and occasional trips to the groomers for a full Labrottie makeover.

4. German Rottie

Parent Breeds: German Shepherd and Rottweiler

The German Shepherd Rottweiler mix inherits its strong desire to work which is supported by its muscular body and endless stamina.

The German Rottie can have a medium-long coat or a long coat if the parent Rottweiler is longhaired.

Keep in mind that the German Rottie is a very large dog that can suffer from developmental health problems such as hip dysplasia.

5. Saint Weiler

Parent Breeds: Saint Bernard and Rottweiler

Not only does Saint Weiler grow into a big dog like its giant Saint Bernard parent, but it also inherits some of its physical features like many Saint Bernard mixes do.

From Saint Bernard’s incredible coat colors to its droopy face, a Saint Weiler inherits a unique look. Due to the fact that both the Rottweiler and Saint Bernard grow very fast, the Saint Weiler puppy is going to reach its full size in no time!

Having a Saint Weiler mixed breed by your side means that your house will be protected 24/7 and you will have the most loving and loyal companion.

6. Boxweiler

Parent Breeds: Boxer and Rottweiler

Among all Boxer mixes, the Boxweiler is our favorite one. Why? Because it inherits the goofy side of the Boxer while keeping those alert and protective Rottweiler traits.

Moreover, mixing a brachycephalic dog such as a Boxer with a Rottweiler helps elongate its muzzle. That means that the Boxweiler does not have any breathing issues like the purebred Boxer.

The purebred Boxer is a medium-sized dog, so the Boxweiler may not grow as big as its Rottweiler parent. So, consider feeding the Boweiler what you would feed a purebred Boxer.

7. Aussierottie

Parent Breeds: Australian Shepherd and Rottweiler

There’s only one word to describe the Australian Shepherd Rottweiler mix — adorable! We are all aware that Aussies are some of the most beautiful canines around, whether it be a blue merle or a red merle Aussie.

Now, an Aussierottie can inherit all of the Australian Shepherd colors, but it will most likely inherit the black and mahogany shades of the Rottweiler parent.

Because of its black and mahogany coat color with a distinct white chest, the Aussierottie reminds me of the black Australian Shepherd.

The Aussierottie is likely to inherit a double coat that can shed moderately like the Australian Shepherd and the Rottweiler parent.

8. Rotthound

Parent Breeds: Basset Hound and Rottweiler

When it comes to Basset Hound mixes (and there are plenty of them), the majority of pups inherit the short legs due to the dwarfism gene that Basset Hounds carry.

Rottweilers are usually mixed with purebred Basset Hounds of standard size, but there are times when Rotts are mixed with miniature Basset Hounds. Due to the size difference, miniature Rottweilers are preferable in those cases.

The Rotthound will grow into a lazy and affectionate medium-sized dog with a very unique appearance.

9. Mastweiler

Parent Breeds: Bull Mastiff and Rottweiler

When fully grown, this powerful mix puppy can reach up to a whopping 120 pounds and 26 inches! That is if it leans more toward the Bull Mastiff parent.

Another trait the Mastweiler inherits is some of the beautiful Bull Mastiff coat colors that make its appearance all the more intimidating.

You can expect a Mastweiler to be a bulky and muscular dog that is probably going to need a lot of high-quality dog food to keep its large body going.

Because of the high Bull Mastiff price, the Mastweiler pup may be more expensive when compared to other Rottweiler mixes.

10. Pitweiler

Parent Breeds: Pitbull and Rottweiler

Step aside because the Pitweiler is in town! The Rottweiler Pitbull mix is a unique one, for sure. It is a combination of two dogs that are commonly misunderstood as aggressive dog breeds. This is mostly due to their big size and high prey drive.

The Pitweiler is most likely going to inherit the high prey drive. But, with early socialization, regular training, daily exercise, and positive reinforcement, the Pitweiler will make a wonderful pet.

With a Pitweiler you will get an energetic dog and a great family dog if trained properly.

11. Cockweiler

Parent Breeds: Cocker Spaniel and Rottweiler

Both the American and the European Cocker Spaniel dog can be a parent to the Cockweiler puppy. Rotts are larger than standard Cocker Spaniels which is why miniature Cocker Spaniels are out of the breeding game.

The Cockweiler grows into a medium-large dog that weighs a maximum of 85 pounds. However, Cockweiler’s size is always an estimate because you can never be sure how big the mix puppy will get.

Both Rotts and Cocker Spaniels are labeled as aggressive dogs, and I am not sure why. It must be the Cocker Spaniel barking that leads people to this misconception.

12. French Bullweiler

Parent Breeds: French Bulldog and Rottweiler

Oui, oui! French Bulldog mixes are super-fun and surprisingly smart pooches that win our hearts over with their bubbly eyes and pointy ears. Not to mention the beautiful French Bulldog colors these pups inherit. One of them that grabs all the attention is the French Bullweiler.

The Frenchbullweiler inherits the face and body type of a Frenchie, coat colors, and patterns of a Rottweiler parent. 

The Frenchbullweiler looks like a black French Bulldog with a pinch of Rott!

13. New Rottland

Parent Breeds: Newfoundland and Rottweiler

No, New Rottland is not a country, it is one of the fluffy Newfoundland mixes! The New Rottland is a fun mix between two very large dogs, which is why we often call this pooch a gentle giant.

The gentleness of the New Rottland comes from both parent breeds. But, if it leans more toward Newfoundland, it is going to act as a giant lap dog!

The New Rottland usually comes in black, but it can inherit some of the unique Newfoundland colors.

14. Beagweiler

Parent Breeds: Beagle and Rottweiler

The Beagweiler is as fun as it sounds. This Rottweiler mix breed is outgoing and affectionate, but its high prey drive and a strong sense of smell make the Beagweiler a bit mischievous at times. By that I mean Beagweilers may jump off the fence to follow the scent they’ve just picked up!

It may also be a bit difficult to train a Beagweiler which is why you should invest in a good Rott or Beagle harness, depending on the size of this mix puppy.

Since Rotts and Beagles were bred for a variety of different things, the Beagweiler is a versatile mix breed.

15. Borderweiler

Parent Breeds: Border Collie and Rottweiler

When you combine two world’s smartest dog breeds, you get a Borderweiler. This incredible pup inherits the brains and adorable coat colors of the Border Collie and Rott parent.

In addition to its beautiful looks, the Borderweiler is a hard-working dog that needs daily exercise and quality mental stimulation like all clever Border Collie mixes do. If dog owners don’t socialize Borderweilers on time, they can bark like Border Collies and acquire aggressive behavior like Rotts.

16. Dachsweiler

Parent Breeds: Dachshund and Rottweiler

Long-haired, smooth-coated, or wire-haired Dachshunds, all of them can be mixed with a purebred Rottweiler to develop the one and only — Dachshweiler.

Dachshunds grow to be pretty long, but overall small dogs. All Dachshund mixes, including the Dachshweiler, inherit the dwarfism gene that makes their legs as short as your boss’s temper!

The Dachshweiler is an energetic dog but it can be a bit needy like its Dachshund parent. So, make sure to spend lots of time with your Dachsweiler puppy!

17. Peiweiler

Parent Breeds: Shar Pei and Rottweiler

If you combine a long-haired Rott with a bear-coated Shar Pei, you will get a very fluffy Peiweiler. Even if it is not fluffy, the Peiweiler is a beautiful pup that inherits some of the signature Shar Pei colors and wrinkles.

The Peiweiler also goes by the name Rott-Pei, and unlike other Shar Pei mixes, it can be a more protective mix puppy due to the fusion of Pei and Rott genes.

A bit of heavy socialization and daily training will do the trick in raising the perfect Peiweiler!

18. Rottle

Parent Breeds: Poodle and Rottweiler

Rottweiler mixes just got cuter with the Rottie Doodle! Or Rottle, or however you want to call this mix puppy. One thing is for sure — the Rottle is among the smartest and toughest Poodle mixes.

The purebred Rottweiler is usually mixed with a standard-sized Poodle which is why the Rottle offspring won’t be a mini Doodle breed. Instead, it is going to be a pretty big dog.

19. Rottmatian

Parent Breeds: Dalmatian and Rottweiler

Paw lovers are surprised by the Dalmatian Rottweiler mix that turns out to be a bit on the low-energy side. However, this is rarely the case because both Rotts and Dalmatians like to move around a lot.

If the Rottmatian has a white Rottweiler parent and a Dalmatian, chances are that this mix puppy will acquire signature spots and dots. It may also stay black and mahogany like the Rott, but considering the variety of Dalmatian coat colors, the Rottmatian is going to be among the spotted dog breeds.

20. Rotterman

Photo from: @tyson.thepooch

Parent Breeds: Doberman Pinscher and Rottweiler

Doberman and Rottweiler dogs are look-alikes in the canine world which is why the Rotterman is one of the dogs that look like Dobermans.

Due to the fact that the black coat is dominant in both parent breeds, the Rotterman is likely to be a black and tan or black and mahogany pooch. So, no matter if the Rottweiler parent is crossed with a fawn Dobie, blue, or red Doberman, the Rotterman offspring is likely to be a black pup.

Besides its powerful appearance, the Rotterman makes an amazing guard dog, and a great family dog.

21. Rottgi

Parent Breeds: Corgi and Rottweiler

The Rottgi is a high-energy pooch that has lots of love to give to its family members. It is loyal but at times, the Rottgi can be a bit aloof like the majority of Corgi mixes.

Rottgi shows incredible guarding and herding skills too. I mean, what were Corgis bred for anyway?

When properly trained, the Rottgi is going to make a wonderful family dog that gets along with everyone!

22. Rotthuahua

Parent Breeds: Chihuahua and Rottweiler

Yes, it is possible to cross a Chi and a Rott to get a Rotthuahua mix puppy! To our surprise, this small dog is as fierce as a Chihuahua and as protective as a Rottweiler.

Both Rotts and Chihuahuas are notorious for being aggressive, so the Rotthuahua dog owners have to prove everyone wrong by socializing and training this pooch!

23. Pugweiler

Parent Breeds: Pug and Rottweiler

Even though its Rottweiler parent is a hard-working dog, you should not expect a Pugweiler to be one, nor should you expect any Pug mix to be like! But, the Puggweiler mix puppy will be your affectionate little cuddle bug that won’t ever leave your side!

Although pretty healthy, the Pugweiler may inherit some Pug skin problems like skin fold dermatitis and pyoderma.

24. Weiler Dane

Parent Breeds: Great Dane and Rottweiler

The Great Dane is a very big dog which is why the Weiler Dane is going to grow pretty tall, big, and heavy — a true gentle giant mix breed!

As far as their temperament goes, the Weiler Dane is one of the friendliest and most affectionate Great Dane mixes!

25. American Bullweiler

Parent Breeds: American Bulldog and Rottweiler

American Bulldogs and Bullies come in different sizes and shapes. The American Bullweiler is usually a medium-sized dog that is perfect for guarding you and your house.

The American Bullweiler inherits the best sides of both parent breeds — playfulness, protectiveness, affection, loyalty, and dedication.

26. Weimarrott

Parent Breeds: Weimaraner and Rottweiler

Weimaraner mixes make incredible pups, but the Weimarrott is something else. Although usually black, the Weimarott can inherit gray shades of the Weimaraner parent.

Due to its high-energy levels and high prey drive, the Weimarrott needs a proper diet and regular exercise in order to avoid destructive and aggressive behavior.

27. Chowweiler

Parent Breeds: Chow Chow and Rottweiler

Some Chowweiler puppies can have bushy tails that are pointed upwards, just like those in Chow Chows! Chowweilers may even inherit the signature blue tongue color of the Chow parent.

The Chowweiler is a brave and protective Rottie Chow Chow mixed breed that may be unfriendly towards strangers. This is what makes them good guardians and excellent watchdogs.

But, Chowweilers must be socialized from an early age!

28. Rottita

Parent Breeds: Akita Inu and Rottweiler

When Rottweiler or Akita breeders combine these two intelligent dogs they get an incredible guard dog, a goofy partner in crime, an alert watchdog, and a loyal furry friend, known as the Rottita.

The Rottita stands out among other Akita mixes because it inherits the hard-working personality of a Rottweiler, rather than the stubborn side of the Akita parent. But, you never know how Rottita’s personality will come out!

29. Rottiecorso

Parent Breeds: Cane Corso and Rottweiler

A Rottiecorso makes a combination of two very protective and intelligent big dogs that look pretty scary! Since it is a big dog that can get overly protective, the Rottiecorso needs a quality harness made for Cane Corso or Rottweiler dogs.

It inherits the deep eye colors of the Cane Corso and unique coat patterns from the Rottweiler parent.

30. Rotthoula

Parent Breeds: Catahoula and Rottweiler

The Rotthoula is such an amazing Rottweiler mix that can do any given task. The Rotthoula is also one of the coolest dog breeds around.

If you want your Rotthoula to reach its full potential, then I recommend that you start training and socializing as early as eight weeks of age.

31. Shihweiler

Parent Breeds: Shih Tzu and Rottweiler

Most paw lovers think that Shih Tzu mixes are small dogs, but the Shihweiler mix puppy can become quite big, especially if it leans more towards the Rott parent.

Even though this dog combination is rather odd, it proves to be a very easy-going pup that is suitable for first-time dog owners.

32. Springer Rottie

Parent Breeds: English Springer Spaniel and Rottweiler

English Springer Spaniels are the coolest among Spaniel dog breeds, at least in my opinion. The Springer Rottie inherits double the cool traits from both parent breeds.

If you are looking for an energetic dog that is a good hunter too, then the Springer Rottie mix puppy is to be taken into consideration!

33. Staffweiler

Parent Breeds: American Staffordshire Terrier and Rottweiler

Dog breeders truly had a great idea of mixing these two incredible working dogs to develop the Staffweiler. Mixing any type of Pit Bull with a Rottweiler turned out to be a great idea because the Staffweiler is a powerful, yet affectionate dog who loves human company.

Besides its dazzling appearance, the Staffweiler is a high-energy mix puppy that requires a lot of exercise and early socialization too.

Final Words

Rotties are great pooches that are dedicated to their owners and families. Rottweiler mixes inherit all of Rottweiler’s amazing traits which is why these mix puppies are gaining so much popularity.

In addition to various combinations and looks, Rottweiler mixes are among the healthiest mixed breeds. This may come off as a surprise because purebred Rottweilers are known for their health issues.

Crossing purebred Rotts with other dog breeds leads to the greater lifespan of Rottweiler mixes, which goes hand in hand with the well-known hybrid vigor these pups inherit.

Did you choose your favorite Rottweiler mix? I sure did!
