Shepherd Pit

German Shepherd Dog / American Pitbull Terrier Hybrid Dogs


The Shepherd Pit is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the German Shepherd Dog and the American Pitbull Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Coby the German Shepherd / Pitbull mix at 3 years old


Deci (December) the Shepherd Pit at 1 year old—"She's a gorgeous dog with a really high-energy drive. She's protective when in the presence of strangers, unless we tell her not to be. Then she's completely submissive and tranquil. To combat this energy of hers, we run two miles twice a week, and walk one on the days that we don't run. She's never been aggressive. We can bring dogs into our home and she immediately accepts them into our pack. :) Overall, an amazing hybrid that I will surely come to own again! We might decide to adopt one as a second companion for Deci. I really should since we recently lost our American Pitbull pup."

Raven the Shepherd Pit puppy—"She is a German Shepherd / Pitbull mix. She is very rambunctious but calms down in time for her nap. She was the only one out of the litter to be black and white. The other puppies were brown and white. Her mother was a German Shepherd and her father was a Pitbull."
