Teacup Rottweilers do not exist as an officially recognized breed. The Rottweiler is a large breed of dog, and while there are smaller versions of certain breeds, such as teacup Chihuahuas, there is no such thing as a teacup Rottweiler.
In fact, “teacup” is a term that is often used to describe smaller versions of certain breeds that have been bred to be unnaturally small. These dogs may suffer from health issues, such as a weaker immune system, fragile bones, and dental problems. This is because breeding for a smaller size can lead to genetic abnormalities and an increased risk of health problems.
It is essential to prioritize the health and well-being of any dog, rather than choosing a dog based on their size or a label like “teacup.” If you are interested in adopting a Rottweiler, look for a reputable breeder or rescue organization that prioritizes the health and temperament of their dogs. Additionally, keep in mind that Rottweilers are a large, active breed that require a lot of exercise and training, so be prepared for the commitment that comes with owning one.
When Rottweilers are raised with other dogs and cats, they generally get along well with them. They may have issues with strange dogs or adult dogs that are introduced into the home, being intolerant of same-sex dogs. With your training and guidance, however, they should accept new animals peaceably. Keep your Rottie on leash in public to prevent aggression or belligerence toward other dogs. The Rottie is not the best candidate for visiting off-leash dog parks.
The Rottweiler has a reasonably good natural balance, force-barks when necessary, and when working cattle uses a very intimidating charge. There is a natural change in forcefulness when herding sheep. When working cattle, it may use its body and shoulders and for this reason should be used on horned stock with caution.
