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.
There's no denying the appeal of a white AmStaff mix covered with black spots, but be aware of your local laws about owning so-called pit bull mixes. They are not the choice for inexperienced or irresponsible dog owners.
Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, many Dalmatian / AmStaff mixes are muscular white dogs with black spots.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the Dalmation / AmStaff mix is likely to be a high-energy, loyal dog who demands kind, consistent training. A neglectful owner could create a destructive dog.
"Even if I haven't spend a lot of time with my actual dog, taking into consideration it is only 7 months old, I am really fascinated by this breed. It is truly energetic all the time, it runs, it barks, especially when it is necessarary. As far as I am concerned, I think this breed fits perfect for anybody, because it brings joy to your life. From my long experience with this kind of dogs, I can surely state that they are really good at training, even if you do it by yourself. Bruno, for instance, has learned the basic "rules" in less than a week. So, in conclusion, I would strongly recommend this breed. It's a mixture of fun, playing and, in the same time, trustworthy dog."
