Is this dog right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
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 American Pit Bull Terrier and an Australian Bulldog isn't all that common, especially since the Australian Bulldog is little known outside its home country. However, be aware that not all bully breed mixes are being created by well-intentioned people. You will need to know how to socialize and manage a powerful animal with some fighting dog ancestry.

Appearance / health:
The American Pit Bull Terrier / Australian Bulldog Mix will usually be instantly recognizable as a so-called pit bull mix, so you will need to check your local laws to be sure you are allowed to own these animals in your area.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's always difficult to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, enough breeders and trainers have worked with APBT / Bulldog mixes to report that a well-trained, well-socialized animal will be a devoted family pet and an excellent family guardian. However, a poorly socialized dog could be a problem or even a legal liability.
