By the way, the AKC does not adhere to the standards established by the FCI and there are variations in the appearance of American Rottweilers compared to their German counterparts.

According to the AKC, the American Rottweilers appearance ideal is medium-large inbuilt, powerful, and robust. It dog is to be black with clearly defined rust-colored markings.

Its bone, as well as muscle mass, should be adequate to balance the dog’s frame to give it a powerful yet compact appearance. While bitches are by nature less massive with a smaller frame and lighter bone structure than dogs, they are without weakness in either structure or substance.
