Shepnees

German Shepherd/ Great Pyrenees Mixed Breed Dogs

Information and Pictures

Two tan with black large breed dogs with thick coats and ears that fold over and out to the sides laying down on a gray porch. One dog has her head over the other dog's back.

"Zoë and her sister Cali were adopted from the Humane Society in Bowling Green, Ky. They now live in Louisville with my fiancé, our cat, and me. They love to roughhouse with one another, which is sometimes like watching a bull in a China shop. Their favorite time of year is winter, especially when it snows. They'll be 3 years old in November and weigh nearly 100 pounds. Zoë weighs 92 pounds and Cali weighs 87 pounds. Cali does have a chicken allergy and has to be on a limited ingredient food to keep from breaking out in hives. Otherwise, they're perfect girls.

Description

The Shepnees is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Great Pyrenees and the German Shepherd. 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.
