Species group: Mixed Breeds
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 pairing between an Afghan Hound and an American Pit Bull Terrier isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue.
Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, at least some Afghan Hound / American Pit Bull Terrier Mixes may resemble the APBT side of the family tree. Make sure you are allowed to own so-called pit bull mixes in your area.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of any mixed-breed dog, the Afghan Hound / American Pit Bull Terrier Mix is likely to present a particular challenge because of the wide number of possible traits they could express. Get to know the dog as an individual before you decide to take it home.
