Species group:

Other name(s): Native American Valley Dog, Alaskan Shepherd

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 first generation Alaskan Shepherd is a cross between the German Shepherd Dog and the Alaskan Malamute, although subsequent generations may have different proportions in the mix. These intelligent and powerful dogs need good training and a sense of purpose. Not for the novice dog owner.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the fact that some individuals can be confused with the Wolfdog gives you the general idea. The Alaskan Shepherd can be a large, impressive, even intimidating animal.

Behavior / temperament:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but the Alaskan Shepherd is usually bred to be a working dog. Properly trained, they can be good companions for the active owner who has useful work for them to do. If you need a dog to help you patrol your ranch, this mix could be a great choice.
