Description

The Pitweiler is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Rottweiler and the Pit Bull Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

He loves to run and play fetch as much as he can, and he has also taken a liking to Frisbee. He is a very beautiful dog that has intelligence to match. He is the best dog and companion a human could ask for."

Dozer as a puppy—"I have a really neat dog named Dozer. He is a RottenPit. His mom was a full Rottweiler and dad was a full Pitbull. Dozer is real good with those he knows but aloof with strangers. Once he has warmed up to you he will be your best friend!! He is a very smart guy, he knows how to sit, walk very well on a leash and wait at doors and he waits for you to put his food down and doesn't touch it until you say get it. Dozer is only 14 weeks old!!!"
