Is the German Shepherd Dog / Rottweiler Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Shepweiler

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.

When you cross-breed two of the most highly regarded guardian dogs, the Rottweiler and the German Shepherd, you get an intelligent dog with powerful instincts that need to be channeled in the right direction. This powerful dog isn't for everyone. Know how to properly socialize your Shepweiler, and you may have one of the world's best working dogs. Neglect or abuse the animal, and you may have a legal liability.

Appearance / health:
All mixed breed dogs differ in appearance, but you can expect a powerful larger dog.

Behavior / temperament:
All mixed-breed dogs are individuals, but this mix increases the chances of getting a dominant, intelligent dog that wants to be of service. Know how to socialize the dog, and give it something interesting and worthwhile to do.
