Dogs that are mixed may occasionally have instincts that contradict each other, which can create a very confused dog.

However, if the owner is responsible and is able to control his dog, then the Akita/German Shepherd mix should not have a bigger tendency towards aggression than any other dog.

When seeing an Akita/German Shepherd doesn't wonder about whether the dog is aggressive but whether if the owner is responsible.

What is the origin of the German shepherd dog?

\nThe German Shepherd dog was developed from prick eared European herding and farm dogs in the late 1800s. During 1899 a German dog fancier and cavalry officer, Captain Max Von Stephanitz, purchased a herding dog named Hektor Linksrhein that greatly impressed him. He brought the dog to his vast Estate in Grafath Germany. Von Stephanitz subsequently renamed the dog Horand v Grafrath. On April 22, 1899 Von Stephanitz, Adolf Meyer, Ernst Von Otto and others, formed the Verein fur Deutsche Schaferhunde (SV) in Germany. The translation of this name is roughly, "The German Shepherd Dog Club of Germany". The SV started a registration book and Harand v Grafrath became the first registered German Shepherd Dog. On Sept. 20, 1899, the SV adopted a breed standard based on the proposals of Meyer and Von Stephanitz and later held its first specialty show at Frankfurt-am-Main, using the titles Sieger and Siegerin. The development of the German Shepherd Dog had begun.

German Shepherd Swimmers . GSDs swim brilliantly.

What kind of dogs are German shepherds?

They are the most wonderful breed I have ever had the priveledge to know. (oh yeah) They were bred to herd and guard livestock and the German Type is robust, stout, ever vigilent, brave, loyal, large, smarter than your average bear, if you get a great dog like this, you should find a great trainer. In the USA we have bred them differently to be more of a show dog. Some of them are magnificent, more refined bodies are leaner and they do well if well bred. The K9s you see with Service Personal are usually from great German stock and they protect our Military, Police, Sheriff's, (if they are Lucy enough to buy one), ATF, Thearpy Dogs and Search and Rescue for the living and the dead. They are truly magnificent. If poorly bred, they develope diseases common to the breed type and if you were to purchace one, it would be a great idea to find an excellent breeder with high morals. If you buy unwisely, you run the risk of great heartache for you and your beloved shepherd. Always ask to see the parents. Make sure everyone in it's family has been OFA'd and DNA'd for the stud dogs. It just saves heartache if you do the home work. German shepherds are the best i lllllllllllllllllllooooooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeee these dogs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Akita vs German shepherd?

read all of it!!!!!!! The Akita easily They are heavier and stronger with larger heads and jaws. A larger head = more biting power. The German Shepherd is a fantastic dog, but the Akita goes far beyond a German shepherd and for a companion and guard dog I would have to go with the Akita, it is capable of killing to protect its owner & family dependent of situation. They're highly intelligent and make the best protector for a family. Before world war 2 in japan when bear hunting was legal they used to hunt bears and most of the time kill the bears if you don't believe me listen to this quote Michio Ebisu says "I was walking in the forest and my Akita was with me when suddenly I was attacked by a bear my Akita jumped at the bear and used all it's weight to tackle the bear to the ground it then it bit the bears neck holding it in a lock and the bear was dead in no time." lets see a German shepherd do that

A mentally sound German Shepherd shouldn't be. But that's why we shouldn't encourage puppy mills and back yard breeders who aren't careful about socialization and the genetic components of temperament. There are different types of aggression in dogs and not all German Shepherds are aggressive. The German Shepherd is a herding type dog and extremely intelligent; however, they are a breed that tends to have a high guarding drive. There are many reasons why a dog could become aggressive. It could be health, social, or incident driven and it is usually best to find a professional who works with the breed and is qualified to assess and re-train such a dog. They are FAR from aggressive, protective yes but never aggressive unless threatened or abused to be that way. Further more German Shepherds are police dogs and from such working lines are supposed to take down a criminal, they may look aggressive in doing this but are only gripping a certain part to restrain, a dog is only aggressive and this is any breed in fact if the owner can not control it and doesn't make it clear that they are alpha.

Is Akita Mixed with German shepherd a Mix?

We live with an Akita/Shepherd " Hybrid ". I have researched the " mix " extensively.. Opinions vary greatly. One hardcore dog fanatic likened breeders who intentionally mix the two breeds, as irresponsible, saying that there were enough unwanted " mutts " in the world. I happen to love mutts and believe, that mixes are usually healthier animals, less subject to inbred predispositions to health problems. I have also read that some people refer to the Akita/Shepherd mix as a highly desirable " Designer Breed ", and considered them to be a status symbol. I lean towards this opinion. Bare in mind that we LOVE this animal, as do just about everyone who meets him. Historically, the original Akitas were mixed with other breeds to begin with. Great Danes were one of the breeds that the Japanese mixed them with. I noticed Dane traits before I was privy to that info. In summary, call Akita/Shepherd a mix, a mutt, a hybrid, or a designer breed. Or you could call it what my Vet called him.....A GREAT DOG. I am sorry if you were looking for an AKC definition.

Mixed Breeds of German Shepherd?

One of the common breeds used in a German Shepherd mix is the Great Dane. Both are affectionate dogs and also hyperactive. They are cute, in spite of the size, and very good guards. Unfortunately some German Shepherd mixed breeds can show the worst characteristics of both parents. The common breeds crossed with the German Shepherd are Chow Chows, Akitas, Rotweilers, and Doberman Pinschers. These guard dogs, which are the products of the German Shepherd mix, can be dominant and aggressive. This can prove difficult in families where there are small children, or there is an adult man or woman, who does not have a commanding voice and cannot control the dog. Also the German Shepherd mix could have either a very good or a very bad temperament for life as a family pet. Also when it is bred with a Golden Retriever, a Labrador Retriever, a Collie or other mild-mannered dog, it totally overpowers the sweet temperament of these dogs. Some neurotic characteristics of the German Shepherd come to the forefront and the cross breed turns shy, but aggressive. It is even worse to combine the German Shepherd with the Alaskan Malamute, because the latter has a tendency towards animal aggression, independence and stubbornness. So the German Shepherd mixed breed then becomes more than a handful and potentially dangerous. . I know the Alasken Shepalute and Shepadoodle are good mixes too.

What are similarities of an Akita and a German Shepherd?

Other than both being used for guarding or home protection, not much. They do both have a tendency to be vilified as vicious or overly aggressive. This is of course completely subjective, as any dog not raised right can be vicious or aggressive. Akita's are generally not recommended for first time dog owners, or those that do not have the time and resources to devote to properly socializing and training such a big, strong animal. Akita's, like all other Japanese "Inu" dogs, are notorious for their stubbornness and independent streak. They can also be much less tolerant of other dogs, especially of the same gender. GSD's also need a healthy amount of training and socialization, but are generally considered a bit easier because of their desire to please their owners. Akita's started out as hunting dogs, and some still retain a strong prey drive, GSD's are herding dogs, although some of them have a prey drive as well. Hope this helps.
