Yes, Miniature Rottweilers do exist.
However, Rottweilers are never miniature by their nature and they are normally classified as large pets, growing to an average height of 25 inches, weighing as much as 132 lbs.
You may have heard of or seen a purebred Miniature Rottweiler, but its existence is down to extraordinary circumstances. A Miniature Rottweiler can naturally be a Rottweiler affected by dwarfism, or a runt which is not diseased or suffering from dwarfism, a perfectly healthy dog.
Miniature Rottweilers can also exist as a mixed breed, a cross between a Rottweiler and a smaller breed. If the Rottweiler is crossbred from the runt of the litter, they will also likely be miniature.
Miniature Rottweilers, bred from the Rottweiler and another miniature breed, are highly recommended and usually healthy.
How Big Do Miniature Rottweilers Get?
If you are interested in owning a Miniature Rottweiler, I’m sure you’re also interested in how big they get. The size of any Mini Rott depends on its nature, whether it was crossbred or purebred.
On average, when fully grown, Miniature Rottweilers can grow between 40 to 80 lbs. But, unfortunately, they also don’t extend beyond 12 inches tall. So, they are still handy enough to go anywhere with you.
Some exceptionally small breeds like the Rottweiler Chihuahua Mix can weigh as little as 6 pounds, standing a tiny 6 inches tall, if you love them very small.
If that’s too miniature for you, the Rottweiler Beagle Mix fares a bit better. It grows as heavy as 80 lbs and can stand 27 inches tall when fully grown.
