Is the Australian Shepherd / Golden Retriever Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Australian Retriever

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 Australian Retriever is a cross between a pure Australian Shepherd and a pure Golden Retriever, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While the goal of the pairing is to get the intelligence of the Aussie Shepherd combined with the wonderful personality of the Golden, you'd better have a lot of energy for this athletic mix.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Australian Retriever seems to be unusually variable, with a variety of coat lengths and colors. Expect a good-sized, energetic animal.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, you're getting DNA from two breeds that love to roam widely in the outdoors. Can you keep up?
