Is the German Shepherd Dog / Whippet Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Shepherd Whippet

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 Shepherd Whippet is a cross between a pure German Shepherd Dog and a pure Whippet, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, and the appearance (not to mention the size) of your pet could be very different depending on whether the GSD or the Whippet traits dominate.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of any mixed-breed dog, the GSD / Whippet is likely to benefit from being leash-trained. Some of them can leap quite high, so make sure you have a good fence, because the sighthound genes can make it impossible for them to resist the urge to chase-- and at least one of these animals has been hit by a car.
