Is the German Shepherd Dog Mix right for you?

Species group:

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.

Breeders seeking to create healthy crosses often reach for the powerful, intelligent German Shepherd, one of the world's most useful dogs. As a result, there's a wide variety of GSD mixes available to pet owners who are more interested in certain looks and personality traits than in possessing a registered show dog.

There are so many different crossbreeds and potential mixes that we need to approach every GSD mix as an individual. However, as a general rule, if the GSD characteristics dominate, you should expect an intelligent dog who benefits from an involved owner who can channel their pet's energy. Don't allow these dogs to get bored.

Appearance / health:
While cross-breeding is sometimes undertaken to head off potential genetic problems, if the GSD traits seem to dominate in your dog, it's worth being aware of the health issues that can impact German Shepherd Dogs.

Behavior / temperament:
Any mixed dog must be considered as an individual. However, as a general rule, if the GSD traits dominate, expect a strong, intelligent, and highly responsive dog who does best in confident, accomplished hands.
