The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The pairing between an Alaskan Malamute and an Australian Shepherd isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, and some Alaskan Malamute / Australian Shepherd Mixes look more like the Malamute side than others. Expect a muscular animal with a coat that stands up to cool weather.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the reality is that both parent breeds can offer significant challenges to inexperienced owners. The Australian Shepherd is smart, sensitive, and thrives on having a worthwhile job to do. The Malamute can be considerably more independent and may attempt to establish itself as the alpha if it smells a pushover. Be calm, confident, and consistent. You'll never know 100% what personality you're getting with this mix until you get to know the individual dog in question.
