Is the German Shepherd Dog / Shetland Sheepdog Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Sheltie Shepherd

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 Sheltie Shepherd is a cross between a pure German Shepherd Dog and a pure Shetland Sheepdog, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, although you can be confident the Sheltie Shepherd will be fairly large and energetic. However, the appearance of your pet could be very different depending on whether the GSD or the Sheltie traits dominate.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the odds are high that the Sheltie Shepherd will be an energetic, if not downright hyper, dog that benefits from an involved owner who can provide lots of physical and mental stimulation.
