"This is Samantha Lynn, my American Pitbull / English Springer Spaniel mix at 16 months old. Samantha's father is a black American Pitbull and her mother is an English Springer Spaniel. Both of her parents are papered. Samantha is about 2 feet high and weighs 42 pounds. She is full of love and excitement. She has the energy of a small puppy even though she is over a year old. She wakes up early and plays outside. She runs around for hours chasing birds and rabbits. She loves to swim, whether it is in a little plastic pool or a lake. Her jaw muscles are strong like her dad’s—she hangs on to ropes in the air and tugs. She lives to jump high. While playing fetch, she runs and jumps over bushes. She plays fetch with sticks for hours until your arm is sore. She has a bad case of separation anxiety. When left alone she chews up shoes, books, couch cushions, etc. Although, she potty trained easier than any dog I've ever owned. She lives to please me. She sits, stays, shakes, jumps, among other things, on command. She had Parvo for five days and lived over it with the help of Pedialyte. She loves other dogs, every dog. She just wants to play with them. She is easily the best dog I've ever had."

Description

The Springer Pit is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the English Springer Spaniel and the American Pit Bull 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.
