Miss Mandy - Doberman/German Shepherd

Black and tan dog in blue sweater.

Miss Mandy is a 4 year old Doberman, German Shepherd mix. We got our little girl from an animal shelter.

Miss Mandy loves to run through the woods of Germany, seeing and sniffing everything she can get her pretty little paws on. After that, she must have her nap while she snores louder than my husband. Miss Mandy loves to make people laugh! :o) Miss Mandy is a 4 year old Doberman, German Shepherd mix. We got our little girl from an animal shelter.

Our Mandy was born in Spain. She was a street dog, but then, she got captured. In Spain, when no one comes to claim a dog, they are burned to death, while they are still alive. Miss Mandy is now my best friend.

We've gone through a lot together. When I am sad and begin to cry, she bounces over to me and starts to stub her nose against my thigh until I pet her. She knows that by me holding her and petting her, I will calm down, and stop crying. Also, if you are sitting on the floor reading or watching TV (not giving her any attention), be careful, because she will stick her tongue in your ear and make you laugh! What would I do without Miss Mandy!

A few months ago I had to put my German Shepard/Dobie mix down. Mija (my puppy's name) was the best dog I have ever had. Like most of you, I rescued her from the dog pound. I think the original owners were abusive to her because she was afraid of strangers and acted like an abused dog does. We have a big family, but she stuck close to me. I think she appreciated me because I was the one who saved her.

A few months before we had to put her to sleep she somehow injured her spine and had a hard time walking/using her front legs. After many meds and a lot of time resting in her own kennel, she just kept getting worse and eventually all four legs were affected.

Putting her to sleep was the hardest decision to make. I thought about her quality of life and realized that putting her down was for her best interest. Please see her picture attached. Mija (Meeha) the best dog in the world!

This is Charlie (Doberman Shepherd Mix) and Lucky (Westie). Charlie is 1 year old and 80 pounds. Very good dog besides some minimal digging and chewing. He loves fetch and chasing Lucky around. He is 10 months in this photo.

Hello
Me and my girlfriend adopted this puppy about 2 months ago.
We call him Rambo :) He´s 4 month old now
He is German Shepherd/Doberman on the mother side and we don´t know who the father is. And I was wondering if any body here could share there thoughts on what breed the father might be.

P.s. Personaly I think by looking at the photos on here the father could be Doberman or a German Shepherd..

I've been checking your site for a couple of months now, and I know there haven't been too many posts recently, but I wanted to get your expert opinions. We adopted this dog from the shelter 5 mos ago. Her description from the shelter was "Doberman mix". I have searched and searched and found that she looks just like these Dob/Shep mixes. But she is only about 50 lbs. From what I understand, most Dob/Sheps are over 100lbs. Maybe she is a runt (I love runts), or maybe there is something else in her. She also has wavy hair on her back only (shoulder to tail-wavier at the tail). And by the way-she is Awesome! Go Shelterdogs. If you want to see more pix of her she is on Facebook. First name "Gypsy" last name "Shelterdog".

I got my dog (Hannibal) about four months ago from a rescue. They said he was a year old German Shepherd but his ears were having trouble going up. My vet said he looks Shepherd but he's still very active and teething and he was more like six months old. A friend has seen him and thought he was mixed with Rottwiler, but could he have Doberman in him? He looks very similar to these dogs. And since he still young (about eight months now), is there a chance his ears could stand? I can see them try (I was just curious). Here's a photo of him.

I was so surprised to see a dog that looked like mine! I got Dakota - a doberman' german shepard mix at the rescue league. She was a year old. Now she is 8. She and I are best friends. However, she must have been abused as a pup as she is not a friendly dog to others. She loves my 4 sons who live far away and only visit 1-2 times per year and she will abide their dogs, but she is not nice to friends who may come to visit. Well, that is a small price to pay since alone and wanted a guard dog. She lets people know they are not welcome and I feel very safe with her. She is a good companion and plays well with my cat.

Hey I adopted a doberman/german shepherd mix from a shelter 7 mths ago. He is now shedding like crazy and I was seeing if that was a normal shed or could it be a skin problem. I called the vet and they said that those dogs have an inner and outter coat and it could be the time that they shed out of their baby fur. The amount of hair he;s shedding is making me a little worried. If shedding is the case how much should they be shedding? I would hate to pay the expensive vet fee and all it is, is the normal shed. My other dog doesn't shed so this is new to me. Email response at miss_adams99 at yahoo . com

Very nice pic. Have a question. I found a dog and I think she's dob/shep but I'm not sure. What do you think? Thanks

Hi, Yazan! Your puppy Luicy is adorable! But the people that were telling you she has Rottweiler/German Shepherd Dog in her, were correct. I currently have a 3 yr. old Rottweiler and a 10 month old German Shepherd pup. Rottweilers have a more boxier head than the Doberman, and from what I can see it looks like Luicy has a more boxier head like the Rottie rather than the narrow head of the Dobie. And her markings match the exact replica of my Rottweiler, Mayla.

I Love Shep/Dobe Mix Dogs. I just lost my fem Shep/Dobe Mix named Akiya . Akiya was 14 almost 15 years old. I adopted her from the area animal shelter. She along with the other pups from the litter were mistreated, ears cut off with scissors.My wonderful Akiya was the most devoted intelligent loving Dog I've ever had. Akiya Loved to chase a stick thrown by me. I'll miss her dearly.

The photos are so cool, but you need more of them.

Hello Lady Vic, I recently lost my 14 year old dobie/Shepard mix to lung cancer. she looked just like miss mandy. I think this mix breed is the most beautiful of any dog whether it's a mix or pure. She brought so much joy to my life and all who knew her.

I would love to see more pic's of miss mandy to see her markings and compare them to those that were on my girls. Tony.Bozzelli AT emerson.com Thanks.

So cute. How is the temperament?

By Sam (Guest Post)08/28/2007

I love your dog, she looks exactly like mine, my dog is also doberman/German shepherd mix. My dog along with 3 of her sisters were thrown away in a garbage dumpster in the winter time while it was snowing. Someone found them and turned them into a shelter, by the time I got there, she was the last one and I had to adopt her, she was adorable.

Hi there, do you have any more pics of Miss Mandy? I have a 3 month old Dobe/Shepherd Mix, Mr. Jasper. He is changing everyday and I am just trying to see what other mixes like him grew up to look like! Here is a picture of him at 6 wks! Thanks a bunch!

It is truly barbaric of burning an animal while alive. (or dead, really for that matter) If I am not mistaken, in bull fights there, they still kill the bull after lunging spears at it while antagonising it in other ways. That is why I cheer for the bull when they attack the idiots that are called 'bull fighters'. I'd attack too, if someone was throwing spears at me, my body bleeding and then chasing me about with a silly looking cape (bulls are not incensed by the colour red...they are colour blind. it is the movement close to them that they deem threatening).I think that in all countries animals (cats, dogs, whatever) should be spayed/neutered then released if they are ferral. I also think that a tax deduction or a bonus should be added at tax time if your pet is spayed/neutered and all shots are up to date with a license on their necks. But thank goodness you did rescue that wonderful dog. I am normally a cat person myself, but dogs with the right people just are awesome. I could never hurt a dog, and those who do hurt animals for their sick 'fun' should really be made to suffer the same torture as that animal. JMHO.

I can't believe that they allow that in Spain-it's barbaric!!!

By Stacey Silva [50]01/26/2006

She sounds like an awesome faithful companion! Pets sure do know when and how to make us smile when we're feeling blue! My kitty does too - she likes to be wherever I am, even when I am using the computer - check out this picture - lol! You really have a cute, cute dog!

By Missy01/26/2006

She is so pretty and what a funny picture. I am so glad that the 2 of you found each other. I would hate to think that she would have suffered such a horrible death. I think there's a special place in Hades where people go who do cruel things like that.
