Is the Doberman Pinscher / German Shepherd Dog Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Doberman 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 German Shepherd Dog / Doberman Pinscher is a cross between a pure GSD and a pure Doberman, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. Although the results of mixing pairings can often be unpredictable, in this case both parent breeds are highly regarded for police and military service. The caring, confident owner who knows how to channel the dog's energies into worthwhile activities can expect similar traits in the mix.

Appearance / health:
The appearance of a mixed breed is never guaranteed, but the Doberman Shepherd tends to be a large, powerful, energetic dog.

Temperament / behavior:
The personality of a mixed breed is never guaranteed, and some Doberman Shepherds may be stubborn or suffer from separation anxiety if not properly managed by an intuitive owner with a good grasp on dog psychology. The odds are high that this mix will have a strong desire to do something useful to please you. Sitting on a couch helping you watch TV doesn't really channel their energy. It's probably a good idea to have previous experience with large dogs before you try this mix.
