Not a rottweiler owner but googled up a chart. http://www.a-love-of-rottweilers.com...wth-chart.html Scroll down on the page and he does seem to be smaller than average but I sure wouldn't worry about it if he is healthy and happy.

From the site with the weight chart,
IMPORTANT...... IMPORTANT...... IMPORTANT...... IMPORTANT......
I get many, MANY emails and submissions from Rottweiler owners who are much too concerned (read 'worried') about their pups weight, head size, height and so on.
They seem to get quite obsessed by how big their puppy, or dog, is and often that overshadows everything else. I always feel sad, and a bit frustrated, when I see this happening because a Rottweiler is so much more than just his size and/or outward appearance.
Rotties are absolutely awesome dogs and they have huge hearts, amazing personalities and are courageous, loving, goofy and totally loyal to their humans. These aspects of the breed should never be seen as secondary in importance to their size or 'look'.
I think the hype surrounding Rottweilers is somewhat to blame for this obsession, but no one should ever buy a puppy of any breed solely for their 'reputation' or based on looks.
The Rottie you own is an unique individual, and the product of his genes. Chances are he won't ever match the 'average' figures on this chart, so please don't obsess over it, or worry that he's too small, too tall or that his head isn't big enough!
Just love him... and remember that this Rottweiler puppy growth chart is supposed to help you, not stress you out "

My Dobe female is 36 lbs. at four months. According to their weight chart she should weigh 40 lbs. Do I care? Definitely NO. As long as she is gradually gaining weight, is not too FAT but stays lean and healthy, I am happy. I hate that whether it is a Dobe or a Rotty, all you hear is how BIG they are. Her father was supposed to be 100 lbs. but unless I see them actually on a scale, I tend to not believe them as most people are not great at guessing a dog's weight.
