Is the Australian Cattle Dog / American Bulldog 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 pairing between an Australian Cattle Dog and an American Bulldog isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue. All mixes are individuals, but you need to get to know the animal and think long and hard before you take it home. Unfortunately, some owners have reported that the blend of a breed developed to nip cattle to herd them along and a breed with a strong bite has resulted in a nuisance animal.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Heeler / Bulldog mix is likely to be an energetic, good-sized dog. Whether or not it resembles the Heeler or the Bulldog more seems to be a matter of chance.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, Heelers do have a strong urge to gather members of their flock together by nipping or shoving. If the nip is actually a Bulldog's powerful bite, you have a serious problem. These dogs must be well-socialized by responsible owners who know what they're doing.
