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 American Staffordshire Terrier and a Whippet isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the lean Whippet genes may moderate some of the muscularity of the AmStaff.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the AmStaff / Whippet could represent some real challenges unless you're an intuitive and insightful dog psychologist. Will you get the sensitive sighthound, the loyal family guardian, or an unpredictable blend of both? You will need to socialize with consistency and kindness no matter what traits emerge from your pet. Novice owners should probably pass unless they get to know the dog well before they decide to adopt.
