↓ Keep reading to watch this amazing video
Rottweilers are known for their loyalty and strong physique, and they can grow very large. By fairly large, we mean an average of 95-125 lbs. However, as with all animals, there will be outliers in these statistics. Blondie the rottweiler is one of them. Based in Washington, D.C., Blondie is an incredible friend to everyone he meets.
Whether you like rotten dogs or you're just fascinated by big dogs, it's time to meet Blondie. This 195-pound Rottweiler is full of pure love and affection, and if you come across him in Washington, D.C., you have to pet him. Let's talk about Rottweiler Blondie and how big the average Rottweiler is!
Meet Blondie, the Gentle Giant
Before we go any further, a look at our dear big friend. Blondie often goes to a flooring store with his boss, who happens to work there. In fact, he's often the life of the office when he's safe to visit. Plus, any customer who happens to be in Blondie's floor shop can test the durability of almost any type of floor with his big paws!
Without a doubt, Blondie is the star of his friends. His owner can handle such a large dog with ease, but Blondie also seems to be a very well-behaved boy. The man who filmed the video asked the owner of the Blondie how much it weighed, and the answer was a staggering 195 pounds. You can tell how big he is when he walks through the office.
With a powerful stance and impressive size, the Blondie doesn't seem to get in anyone's way. He also doesn't seem to have any agenda other than snuggling and wagging his tail. However, there is no question in anyone's mind that the Blondie is a strong and impressive dog, like all Rottweilers, big and small!
How big is a Rottweiler?
Most Rottweilers are unlikely to grow as big as a Blondie. In fact, the average female Rottweiler weighs between 80-100 pounds. Male Rottweilers are larger, which is why Blondie the rottweiler is a male. However, even the average male rotten can only reach 100-125 lbs, with 150 lbs being a tough point to hit. A 195-pound Rottweiler? This is completely unheard of in rotten dogs, and most dogs.
But are Rottweilers generally some of the largest dog breeds? Have any dogs ever reached nearly 200 lbs?
What is the largest dog breed in the world?
Generally speaking, the largest dog breeds in the world are the Saint Bernard and the Newfoundland. However, it’s also worth mentioning the Great Dane, Mastiff, and Irish Wolfhound, all amazing breeds of dogs capable of reaching the same gigantic size as the St. Bernard. In fact, the Irish Wolfhound (tied with the Scottish Deerhound) is the tallest dog in the world, with long legs and great speed.
All of these dogs can weigh over 150 pounds, depending on the sex and age of the particular dog. Some St. Bernards and Great Danes weigh over 180 pounds—but what about 195 pounds? That's still a huge number, and what's even more impressive is that the record is held by a Rottweiler! Considering their average size, Rotties rarely make it onto lists of the biggest dog breeds other than the Blondie.
There are many records of giant dogs throughout history. One particular mastiff named Zorba weighed in at around 230 lbs and was even featured on some late night talk shows thanks to his impressive size! All of these mild-mannered giants, big or small, make excellent family pets when properly trained, and Blondie has clearly demonstrated just that during his tenure!
blonde compared to other animals
Besides big dogs, what other animal weighs about as much as our friend Blondie? There are countless giant animals in the animal kingdom, but very few have an average weight of 200 jin. Besides Blondie the rottie, here are some animals that can match or even exceed Blondie's 195-pound weight!
- sea turtle
- black bear
- some deer species
- Many humans!
While this list is only a small sampling of the number of animals that are as heavy as or heavier than a Blondie, it's important to note that the Blondie is an impressive dog for his species and for dogs in general. Kind and strong, Blondie the rottweiler is truly special!
