Is the American Pit Bull Terrier / Australian Shepherd Mix 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 first generation American Pit Bull Terrier / Australian Shepherd Mix is a cross between a pure APBT and a pure Aussie, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

This isn't a common mix, but you may occasionally encounter it in a rescue.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, be aware that if your mix resembles the APBT side, then you could be banned from owning the dog in some areas.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the American Pit Bull Terrier / Australian Shepherd mix could offer a range of temperaments and behaviors. Get to know the dog as an individual, or be an experienced dog psychologist who can handle a strong, energetic dog in any situation. Keeping this dog well-socialized and well-exercised may be the key to success.
