Can anyone tell me the difference between an American Rottweiler vice a German Rottweiler? So many times I see postings regarding people wanting a German Rottweiler vice American. I am curious as to what you all think.

Mamakirs hit the nail on the head. It is the country of Origin in which they are born. Nothing more nothing less. The AKC,UKC,ARV,USRC and ADRK all have the same standard for the breed. Germans have a strong foothold on the working nature of the breed. Germany is known for its' ability to produce top working lines. Working ability is genetic therefor the Germans put this first into their breeding programs sometimes at the risk of conformation. Americans shoot for both conformation and working ability. This is not always the case but typically. Rottweilers do have a long hair gene that occasionally appears in some litters but not often as careful selection in breeding has helped to eradicate this issue.
