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.
Thanks to the rarity of the American Alsatian, you will almost never encounter the American Alsatian / Bull Terrier Mix.
Appearance / health:
Since it isn't a purebreed, there can be some variation in the appearance of the American Alsatian / Bull Terrier Mix, but you can expect a powerful and even intimidating looking dog.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, early socialization and training will probably count for a lot with this mix. A properly socialized American Alsatian / Bull Terrier Mix will likely have a lot of energy and loyalty to give to the owner who provides kind, consistent socialization and a sense of purpose. An improperly socialized dog could be a legal and an insurance liability.
