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.
Know how to train and socialize a powerful dog with lots of energy and a need for purpose. The reality is that some of these American Bully / German Shepherd Dog mixes may be created by breeders with questionable intentions. Be aware of your own abilities to establish yourself as a loving alpha. This mix will not be right for everyone.
Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but in general with the American Bully / German Shepherd Dog Mix you can expect a large, muscular dog. Some of them have a more obvious "bully" appearance in the face and body, so be aware of the local laws regarding your right to own a pit bull mix.
Behavior / temperament:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but there's little doubt that the combination of GSD and American Bully can bring a dog with a lot of energy and loyalty to give to the owner who provides kind, consistent socialization and a sense of purpose.
