Is the Basset Hound / German Shepherd Dog Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Basset 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 Basset Shepherd is a cross between a pure Basset Hound and a pure German Shepherd Dog, 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 the Basset Shepherd is definitely proof of that. The appearance of your pet could be very different depending on whether the GSD or the Basset traits dominate.

Behavior / health:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the cross of a popular scenthound with one of the world's top working dogs can sometimes lead to a useful as well as devoted animal. Some owners have said this mix makes a fine watchdog-- albeit one that can sometimes be distracted by a passing squirrel.
