German Shepherd mixes. Do you love German Shepherd Dog (GSD) but do not know what kind of dog to get? There are many different kinds, and although they may look similar, there are special characteristics in every one of them. Here is a list of the top 10 German Shepherd mixes that may catch your interest.
German Shepherd mixes
This mix has the genes from two great working breeds, the Shepherd and the wolf! The Shepherd’s strong loyalty makes it an amazing family pet while its socialization with wild animals will make this breed very protective over your household. Although this breed may lean toward being aggressive towards other canines because of its Shepherd. This breed is also friendly with children and likes to be in the heart of the action. Because this breed loves to bark, early training will help control it.
German Shepherd Shepherd Mix
This Shepherd mix has three different names: Gorman Shepherd, German Shepherd Shepherd, or German Shepherd Hybrid. This is because it is a mixture between two Shepherd breeds that originated in Germany – Great Swiss Mountain Dog and German Shepherd dog.
With all these awesome breeds, this particular Shepherd mix is sure to do well with children (especially when raised with them), other dogs/animals, and even strangers!
The biggest downside about getting the German Shepherd Shepherd is that they are very high-energy dogs who may need long walks or exercise throughout the day; they also enjoy playing fetch for hours on end.
Shepherd Shepherd Shepherd Mix
To you, it may look like I just combined the first two Shepherd Shepherd mixes but this dog has something unique to it. German Shepherd Shepherds are usually very loving and caring, right? But what about our naughty side? Well, Shepherd Shepherds are actually quite mischievous!
With their high intelligence level, they try to find ways to get you out of your home without you knowing – even if that means breaking furniture or other household items.
Although this is a negative aspect about the Shepherd Shepherd Shepherd mix, these dogs will definitely keep you entertained because they love having fun (and getting into trouble).
Swissy Shepherd Mix
Much like the German Shepherd Shepherd mix, this particular breed has Shepherd Shepherd Shepherd’s loyalty and protective instincts. However, Swissies are also incredibly intelligent! Shepherd Shepherd Shepherd adds to the mix its high energy level.
if you let this Shepherd mixes alone for too long they will find a way out of your house and may tear up everything in the process. There is no such thing as a naughty Shepherd Shepherd Shepherd but their intelligence leads them to be mischievous!
German Shepherd Doberman Mix
This breed is another great family dog or “five-hour-friend” …or maybe not? Yes, German Shepherds love families and children but Doberman pinschers don’t have that same bond with people as other dogs do. Because this breed has a prey drive it can be aggressive towards other animals such as cats and rodents so socialization is key.
With that being said, German Shepherd Doberman mixes will do well with children and will be protective of its family but care should always be taken around smaller children or smaller animals because it may attack them.
Shepherd Pit Mix
One of the best things about Shepherd and pit bull mixes (and similar breeds) is their high level of loyalty; they will never abandon you!
However, Shepherd pits shouldn’t spend too much time alone because these dogs love to play and exercise if left alone for a long period of time the Shepherd pit mix may resort to destroying your home. Like many Shepherd mixes, this breed loves to bark which can become a problem if not addressed correctly.
Shepherd Boxer Mix
Just like Shepherd Shepherd Shepherd mixes love to play, Shepherd Boxer mixes do too! In fact, younger Shepherd boxer mixes can get into a lot of mischiefs – from chewing on furniture and wires to jumping up at strangers.
With older Shepherd boxer mixes an alpha-dog must be established which will allow the dog to relax and behave correctly in your household.
German Shepherds are protective by nature so this breed may protect you from a stranger or other animals if needed but they aren’t aggressive unless trained to be so.
Shepherd Rottweiler Mix
With a combination of two dog breeds known for their loyalty, it’s no surprise that Shepherd rottweiler mixes have that trait as well.
Shepherd Rottweiler mixes are intelligent, loving, and protective which makes them great family dogs. However, Shepherd Rottweilers are powerful animals which means that an “alpha-human” must be established within the household.
Shepherd Pit Shepherd Mix
Because this Shepherd Shepherd mix has a lot of strength, it may become aggressive if not trained correctly – you don’t want your Shepherd pit Shepherd mix to put on their tough-guy persona.
With that being said, this breed will do well with children because they have a high energy level so playing tag or other games will be fun for everyone!
