A shepherd cross lab is a mixed breed and therefore you could not possibly get any idea about possible temperament, size, coat type etc as its not possibly to predict which traits each dog will take on.Originally Posted By: IvyHoustonHello,
Does anybody here have a german shepherd/lab dog?
My room-mate is looking for a dog and he asked me to do some research for him into this mixed breed. Any info regarding temperment, sizes, etc would really be appreciated.
Its not a 'breed', which is my point - there is no way to tell how the pups will develop or what they will look like. They could be more like a lab, or more like a GSD, some could be bigger, some could be smaller, some could be more guardians or some could be more retrievers. Crossbreeds are unpredictable in trait, you have no idea which traits from the parents pups will inherent and there could be a big variety between each pup.Originally Posted By: IvyHoustonThe reason why he is looking at this breed is because there is a litter of pups that are 3 weeks old that have been abandoned by a farm. They are in desperate need of homes, so he figured he wants a dog, and these pups are in great need. He wants me to help do the research before he decides on helping out these poor little puppies.
