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 Airedale Terrier and an Afghan Hound 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, the Airedale Terrier / Afghan Hound Mix is likely to be a large dog with wiry, shaggy, or long hair. Whether it resembles the sighthound or the terrier side of the family more will be a matter of chance.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of any mixed-breed dog, the Airedale Terrier / Afghan Hound Mix could pose a real challenge. Get to know the dog in question as an individual, because you could get the sensitive sighthound, the rough-and-tumble terrier, or anything in between.
