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.
The pairing between an American Staffordshire Terrier and an Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue.
Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, it's possible that your mix will take after the American Staffordshire Terrier side, meaning some of your neighbors may label it as a pit bull mix. Make sure you are allowed to own such mixes in your area.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the American Staffordshire Terrier / Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog Mix is likely to be loyal to family first. It must be properly socialized to avoid becoming a danger to those it perceives as intruders.
