Anyone have a photo of a dog that is part German Shepherd and part Jack Russel?
By Ann Triplett from Cedar Rapids, IA
I was told when I adopted my dog that he is a German Shepherd/ Terrier mix. I think they told me that the mother was the shepherd and the father the terrier. He is now 5 and here is a picture of him. I still don't think the breeds are 100% correct, but haven't been able to find any pictures of these breeds together that look like him.
Here is simba my 2 year old gsd/jack Russell,(jack shepperd)the mum is the jack Russell,dad gsd they are my neighbour's dogs, mum had 5 live pups at home no problems.here is a picture of the 3 of them
It may be unlikely, but it has happened. My dog, Abbey, recently passed, but her mother was a jack russell and her dad was a German shepherd. Im not sure if mom was a purebred though, because she was relatively large for a jack Russell. Anyway, the litter consisted of two white and brown males and a completely brown female, Abbey.
Don't have such a photo, and it seems to be an unlikely combination because of the size difference. A female jack russell bred to a German shepherd would likely die giving birth to puppies that are too large for her to carry. Bad, bad idea.
