THE HISTORY OF THE GERMAN SHEPHERD PITBULL MIX
The German Shepherd Pitbull mix is a big mixed breed dog that you can receive when crossing with an American Pitbull Terrier with a German Shepherd dog. It is sometimes referred to as a German Pit Dog, also known as a German Sheppit or Shepherd Pit.
It is often thought of as a dangerous and aggressive dog due to its appearance and breed history. However, the truth is quite the opposite!
It is the result of cross-breeding two powerful dogs who each prefer to be ‘leader of the pack’. The Pitbull dog was originally bred in the United Kingdom as a fighting and baiting dog and the German Shepherd was specially bred for working and herding in Germany.
The truth: In the wrong handled or not treated with respect, any dog can become aggressive.
There is no doubt that when properly trained and discipline The German Pit can make a great family pet.
THE PARENT MIX
The German Pit is a hybrid dog which was created by two intelligent and strong parents.
The German Shepherd parent, is the most well-known and popular breed in Germany with a strong bloodline dating from 1899. They were developed to be the most powerful and loyal working/ herding dog, employed as guard dogs, police/military dogs, and as service dogs for the disabled.
American Pitbull Terrier is a part of the bull-breed dog breed that originated in the United Kingdom. They were bred to be combat dogs and were often used in animal baiting and entertainment fighting and this gave them the reputation of being a fierce and dangerous dog. They were also referred to as a ‘bully breed’.
In the US they were referred to by the name American Pitbull Terrier and quickly realized that they actually had a caring and loving personality around children. They were known as “The Nanny” dog.
The combination of the GSD and Pitbull Pitbull has resulted in a designer dog that is smart with solid body and requires to be kept very active.
WHAT WAY DOES A GERMAN Port LOOK?
This is contingent on the mix used to create the mix.
German Pit is a pitbull’s son and German Shepherd daughter.
It’s impossible to determine the way a German Pit will look until it is born. The shape may alter slightly as it grows. It will generally be muscular and slim in physique. It usually has the solid body, broad face, and the short coat of a Pitbull with the ears and shade of a GSD.
The Fact is that Mixed breed dogs don’t inherit all of their genes from either parent. They may have traits that are more like one parent than the other.
Since the German Pit is not a purebred dog, it isn’t recognized as such by the American Kennel Club (AKC);
Hybrid dogs can be acknowledged by the American Canine Hybrid Club (ACHC) as well as the Dog Registry of America (DRA). Only the DRA of the USA acknowledges the German Pit bull..
