Is this dog right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Greybull

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 Greybull  is a cross between a pure American Pit Bull Terrier and a pure Greyhound, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but the Greybull tends to resemble a sleeker, more slender APBT. Many people will still be able to recognize most individuals as APBT mixes. Therefore you will need to check your local laws and insurance coverage to be sure you are allowed to own APBT mixes in your area.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of any mixed-breed dog, the Greybull may give new meaning to the word "unpredictable." The Greyhound side could bring a sensitive, even timid, "touch-me-not" personality if the dog wasn't socialized properly from an early age. You may need to be an especially intuitive dog owner to make sure you can socialize and train this mix without losing its trust.
