Is the Australian Shepherd / German Shepherd Dog Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): German Australian Shepherd

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 German Australian Shepherd is a cross between a pure German Shepherd Dog and a pure Australian Shepherd, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This energetic, easy-to-train mix could be a good fit with active families with lots of time to spend with their pet. It's unlikely to be happy in a tiny apartment or in a situation where it's left alone for long hours to watch an isolated property.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but in general with the German Australian Shepherd, you're getting a fairly large dog with lots of energy.

Behavior / temperament:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but the German Australian Shepherd is likely to do best with the active owner who is willing to spend time exercising and training the dog. Give it something useful or interesting to do with all that energy, or it could become destructive.
