Is this dog right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Great Danebull

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 Great Danebull is a cross between a pure American Pit Bull Terrier and a pure Great Dane, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.  This so-called designer hybrid is intended to create an intimidating-looking watchdog that is a true gentle giant to its family. However, this outcome isn't guaranteed without early and consistent training. 

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but the Great Danebull tends to be huge and muscular. Most people will be able to recognize most individuals as APBT mixes. You will need to confirm with your local law and your insurer that you're allowed to own this dog, because this giant isn't going to fly under the radar.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of any mixed-breed dog, the Great Danebull can be a giant lovebug toward its family IF you are a calm, consistent, and responsible owner who knows how to socialize a large protector. If you are uncertain of your skills, consider working with an experienced trainer to get the best out of this mix.
