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 Aidi mix isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter it in a rescue. The parent breed is a tough and powerful watchdog that demands kind, consistent, and responsible training by an owner experienced with guardian breeds.
Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Aidi Mix is likely to be a slim, muscular dog with a bearlike head.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the Aidi Mix is unlikely to be right for most dog owners. Aidis have a protective nature developed when they were used to defend flocks against dangerous predators like jackals and wolves. You need to be an experienced and responsible owner who can properly socialize and manage guardian breeds.
