Is the Caucasian Ovcharka / 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 Caucasian Ovcharka / German Shepherd Dog Mix is a cross between a pure Caucasian Ovcharka and a pure GSD, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This isn't a common mix, although it may occasionally be produced by someone looking to moderate the very strong protective instinct of the Ovcharka with the GSD. This powerful guardian animal should be reserved to experienced, responsible owners comfortable working with large breeds.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Caucasian Ovcharka / German Shepherd Dog Mix is going to be a large, powerful animal.

Behavior / temperament:
The Ovcharka side of the family tree is going to bring a stubborn, independent-minded animal from a long tradition of thinking for itself and fighting to defend its flocks from dangerous predators like wolves. You will need to know how to socialize and manage a protector breed. The GSD genes will also bring a desire to work and do something useful. To get the best from this animal, you will probably need to have a worthwhile task for your dog to perform. Often, this task will be patrolling or guarding a large ranch or estate.
