Species group: Mixed Breeds

Other name(s): German Dachshund

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes. 

The first generation German Dachshund is a cross between a pure Dachshund and a pure German Shepherd Dog, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This unlikely-sounding designer hybrid isn't particularly common, but you may occasionally encounter it in a rescue.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, at least some German Dachshunds look like hounds with GSD coloring.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the GSD's willingness to learn combined with the Dachshund's affectionate and enthusiastic nature could make for a highly prized service or companion animal.

from breeders/sellers

(Breeders and sellers have to jump through hoops to get RightPet listings, literally, we make them do circus tricks. Unfortunately no one has met our high acrobatic standards for this animal yet, but hopefully they will soon!)

from shelters/rescues

(We've had no luck finding any of these frisky fellas so far, even though we've put up wanted posters and everything! But don't worry, we're working on it!)
