Is the Chesapeake Bay Retriever / Australian Shepherd 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 Chesapeake Bay Retriever / Australian Shepherd Mix is a cross between a pure Chessie and a pure Australian Shepherd, 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. Some owners report that these dogs can be a real handful.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. In this case, the appearance of your pet could be very different depending on whether the Chesapeake Bay Retriever or the Australian Shepherd traits dominate. Either way, you can expect a good-sized animal.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, there are some reports that the Chesapeake Bay Retriever / Australian Shepherd Mix can be something of a challenge, since the dogs can be stubborn or independent-minded. Know how to establish yourself as a kind but consistent alpha.
