Is the Basenji / German Shepherd Dog 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 first generation Basenji / German Shepherd Dog Mix is a cross between a pure Basenji and a pure GSD, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

This isn't a common mix, but you may occasionally encounter it in a rescue.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, and this unlikely mix could resemble the GSD, the Basenji, or a blend of the two, all depending on the roll of the genetic dice.

Behavior / health:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the eager-to-work GSD and sensitive sighthound Basenji do not necessarily blend smoothly. Owners have reported that this mix gets bored easily and becomes destructive. If you are unsure of how to socialize this dog, you should consult with an experienced trainer without delay.
