Springer Rottie History

The Springer Rottweiler is a newer hybrid or designer breed of canine. The Springer Rottweiler is a mix between the English springer spaniel and the German Rottweiler. The origins of the Springador are unclear, but the name “Springer” most likely came from the fact that it is a mix between a Spaniel and a Rottweiler. The mix of the two breeds came about when breeders began to combine their two favorite breeds to produce a dog that was better able to hunt. In 2000, the Kennel Club recognized the Springador as a distinct breed. The Springer Rottie is a medium to large sized dog, with males typically measuring 24-27 inches in height and weighing between 80-100 pounds. Females are typically smaller, with males measuring 22-25 inches and females measuring 19-22 inches.
