Mixes, especially Poodle mixes, are all the rage these days, and it’s not surprising. Let’s take a closer look at the Rottweiler Poodle mix, starting with where it comes from.
History and Original Purpose
As with most mixed breeds, it’s hard to pinpoint the exact origins of the Rottie Poodle mix.
Breeding two different breeds on purpose is quite a modern trend. The resulting dogs are called designer dogs.
The earliest known Rottweiler Poodle mix puppies were born in Germany in the 1980s, but other Rottle puppies could have been born earlier, either bred on purpose or by accident.
To get a better idea of the history behind this breed, you can take a look at that of its parents.
Rottle Parent Breeds History
The Rottweiler’s origins are surprising to many. The breed is often thought to be a guard dog. But, it actually started as a herding breed in Germany, driving cattle to market.
Once locomotives became the preferred way to move cattle, the Rottweiler began to lose popularity. But, their protective instincts made them popular again as police, military, and guard dogs.
Even though the Poodle is most often associated with France, this breed also comes from Germany.
Standard Poodles were bred sometime before the fifteenth century to retrieve ducks for hunters.
Fun Facts About the Rottle
Designer dogs are the result of intentionally mixing different purebred dog breeds. This creates a cross with a mix of the traits of the two parent breeds.
Poodles have become popular candidates for designer dogs, as they have a low shedding fur.
But, this trait isn’t actually guaranteed in a mix. Especially in a first generation mix.
Some purebred dog enthusiasts claim that breeding designer dogs is unethical because it creates unhealthy dogs that breeders overcharge for.
But, in reality, if potential owners choose reputable breeders, mixed breeds are no less healthy than purebreds.
In fact, mixing two breeds like this can widen the gene pool, leading to healthier dogs.
