"This is Coda, our Australian Shepherd and Newfoundland mix. He was rescued from a high kill shelter. In these pictures he is 7 weeks old, and weighs 9 lbs. Coda is very cuddly and loves playing in the snow."
The Aussie Newfie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Australian Shepherd and the Newfoundland. 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.
