German Sheprador
(Labrashepherd)

German Shepherd / Labrador Retriever Hybrid Dogs

 

The German Sheprador is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the German Shepherd and the Labrador Retriever. 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.

Roy, our Yellow Lab / German Shepherd hybrid at 6 years old.

"This is Roy, our yellow Lab / German Shepherd at 6 years old. We have had him since he was about a year old. He is extremely friendly and very affectionate. However, the combination of these two breeds has led to excessive shedding. Brushing every day almost isn't enough! But he enjoys every minute of the attention he gets when being groomed. He is very well tempered, keeping playtime in the house to a minimum, but acts like a puppy again once he gets outside."

Dexter the German Sheprador (German Shepherd / Labrador Retriever mix) at 18 months old—"We adopted Dexter when he was 10 months old from his previous family. I don't judge them, as they have done the right thing looking for a new home for him. They didn't have time to exercise a demanding breed mix. So at only 10 months of age he ended up ball obsessed. It takes a lot of time and patience. He still is not perfect but we're moving forward each month. He learns very quickly. That's what you would expect from a Labrador and German Shepherd combined in one dog. Now he can do both paws, high-fives, sit, lay down, stay, get out, move away, jump, play dead "bang bang" and crawl. He recognizes all his toys. If you name a toy he will find it and bring it to you. I believe his mother was a black Labrador and his father a German Shepherd. He has a sensitive stomach and sensitive skin. Unlike a Labrador, he's not a big fan of food. You won't "buy" him with food, but you can with a ball. I can't call a dog that is still obsessed with something fully balanced. It will take more time. But otherwise he's really a treasure. Perfect. We combined a bit of positive-reward training with some of it being a more dominant approach. In my opinion you have to find a fine line between them. Reward training does not work with everything. Especially when you have a powerful dog. If a big dog gets obsessed with an object and jumps on you "bad boy" is not enough. I must show him I'm stronger and I will not accept it and there will be "follow through". No, I never hit my dog. Never. In this case the Cesar Millan approach works well."

Dexter the German Sheprador (German Shepherd / Labrador Retriever mix) at 18 months old—"He is protective and I wouldn't advise a stranger to pull my arm or hit me. He doesn't like it when we do it at home for fun and plays a role of peacemaker, getting between us, barking, whining, jumping and licking. Usually he will cover my body with his body so I can't be touched. He rarely uses his voice, he's a very quiet dog, but when he barks you can clearly hear German Shepherd in there. If he wants to he can sound really scary, but only twice in 10 months I had a chance to hear that. Once was when someone surprised him by coming out of the darkness."

Dexter the German Sheprador (German Shepherd / Labrador Retriever mix) at 18 months old—" At 18 months old he weighs about 32 kg (70 pounds) and is 65 cm (25 inches) in height at the shoulders. He goes out 4 to 5 times a day. Two of those times are usually for about an hour or more. On weekends we take him for much longer walks. Sometimes up to 3 hours at a time."

Dexter the German Sheprador (German Shepherd / Labrador Retriever mix) at 18 months old—"He is a great swimmer and loves being in water. The first time I showed him water at 10 months old, he went in straight away and started swimming with no fear at all."

Dexter the German Sheprador (German Shepherd / Labrador Retriever mix) at 18 months old—"He's very good with people, both adults and children. He loves other dogs, not so much with cats and foxes. He adjust to other dogs way of playing but he prefers running and chasing each other than wrestling. He's very fast and his best play companions are greyhound-type dogs, he enjoys speed. Speed, swimming and fetching are his favourites."

Banjo the German Sheprador (German Shepherd / Labrador Retriever) mix at 11 years old—"We adopted Banjo when she was 1, and now she's a very dignified old lady! Exceptionally trainable and obedient dog. Did a DNA test just for fun and confirmed she was a German Sheprador. Two of the best breeds rolled into one."

Teagen, our Lab / Shepherd / Unknown mix at 2 years old

"This photo is of Teagen, our Lab / Shepherd / Unknown mix at 2 years old! Teagen is almost 7 now. He is always happy, loves everyone and will kiss you forever if you let him! We rescued Teagen from a shelter when he was 9 months old and he became an instant part of our family! Teagen is small for his mix of breeds (he weighs less than 60 lbs.) but isn't he cute?"

Dakota the German Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mix at 1 year old.

"Dakota is my 1-year-old German Shepherd / Labrador Retriever mix. He is training for dock jumping, agility and obedience, and is doing awesome! He has been a great partner, a good guard dog and a great friend. He is always wanting to do something and definitely not the type of dog for an impatient person. We often work with the flirt pole, and he will chase it for hours."

"This is Russell. He is a well-behaved 6-year-old chocolate Lab / German Shepherd mix. He rarely barks, and is GREAT with everyone. He is walked on a regular basis, and loves to play fetch. I took this picture during our rare white winter here in Virginia in the front yard. He was brought home by my wife after her visit to a girlfriend’s house over the holidays. I did not know what to expect, but I have no complaints about our ol' man."

Buddy the Lab/German Shepherd mix at 8 years old.

"Buddy the Lab / German Shepherd mix at 8 years old—he is very, very loving, but very protective as well. He is smart and playful, but is a great large indoor dog at the same time."

__________________________________________

"Here is a picture of our 8-month-old German Shepherd / Labrador mix that we adopted from our local animal shelter. The first few days with him have been a really good experience. He has only barked once briefly each night (probably from the train that I can't hear, but he can). He enjoys his daily walks and does an excellent job!"

This is Luna and our daughter Ally.

"This is Luna and our daughter Ally. Luna is an American White Shepherd / Lab mix. She was 2 months old in this picture and was already getting big! We adopted her from our local SPCA. Her and her sisters were found as babies in a dumpster. She is very peaceful and loves to lie on a blanket on the floor at my feet. As a puppy she did not like to be outside alone and peed a little when she met someone new. I look forward to seeing how beautiful both Luna and Ally become."

"Pictured is my dog Riley, a black Lab (mother) x German Shepherd (father), shown here at 10 months old. He weighed over 90 pounds before he was a year old. He is a total sweetheart who thinks he's a lap dog even though he lives outside. He is not high energy, but seems to prefer lying around on the porch. He is full of curiosity and loves water."

4 year old German Shepherd/Lab mix.

"This is my dog. She is a 4-year-old German Shepherd / Lab mix. She gets very excited to see anyone and is very lovable. She likes tearing the stuffing out of her toys before she'll play with them. Once in a while she will get into the garbage and chew things she's not supposed to."
