Many associations have rules against dogs that have been intentionally or unintentionally crossed with another breed, so these dogs are recognized as Rottweiler.

Problems associated with all Black Rottweilers
As mentioned in the above section, the full Black Rottweiler is not approved by most associations, although it is a pure Rottweiler.
Most associations in the United States and Europe do not approve the Rottweiler, which may be stiff or have extra markings on their body. This makes it difficult for such Rottweilers to be recognized.
Also, dog breeders do not consider them suitable for sale, so they are prone to miscarriage even under certain circumstances.
But, there is also a story on the other side of the coin. Many breeders consider the all-black Rottweiler to be a very rare, exotic breed for which they actually breed it and then sell it at a high price.
But they did not understand that fertility actually leads to many health problems in Rottweiler itself.
How to prevent this?
Neutering and castration of your black Rottweiler can prevent the reproduction of such gene.
In fact, there are unscrupulous breeders who conveniently sell another breed of dog that looks similar to the all-black Rottweiler. So, you need to check what you are buying.
They can be infected with all the ailments that affect a normal Rottweiler. And the reason behind it is a genetic mutation that makes them completely black.
Unfortunately, they transmit these diseases to a much higher level than the common Rottweiler. It has also been reported that black Rottweiler puppies are more likely to be infected with parvovirus. And this deadly virus affects these poor babies, just because of that one gene.
Problems of Breed nature
No such differences were found in the nature of the black and common Rottweiler. They both are loving, loyal, and dedicated dogs. But socialization is a must if you want to curb their aggressive and rigid nature.
All Black Rottweiler can be a problem if not taken care of properly. Like other rare variants of Rottweilers – the white, long-haired, red-mutated gene can host a number of problems. So you have to be careful with your Rottweiler.
Are Rottweilers of other colors ‘purebred’?
When it comes to the color of fur, many variations have been found. However, these Rottweilers are not technically classified as Rottweilers because they conform to the officially recognized definition of base black coat and do not have brown spots.
These other Rottweiler variants are not allowed to participate as pure show dogs. It is generally believed that these variants have a hybrid ancestor, but the regressive pairing variants in the Rottweiler gene are naturally responsible for such variations.
With no way to know for sure, a different color Rottweiler is ineligible for the competition.
