Hi! We adopted a puppy from a shelter about a month ago, and we were told he was a mix. Out of curiosity and preparation we ran a DNA test. It turns out he is 50% American Staffordshire Terrier and the other 50% is evenly split between a Border Collie and Great Pyrenees! I’ve done a been of research on each of the breeds and some of their mixes but no idea what the three can result in. Anyone have any idea of the temperament, size, possible health issues I should be prepared for? I just want to make sure I am giving my pup the best care :)

This is, of course, just one person's opinion, but I believe with a mixed breed, you have to look at the dog as a unique individual. It's possible, for instance, that with the mix you describe, your guy could look and act very much like any one of the three breeds your test showed. On the other hand, he could look mostly like one and act mostly like another. Then again he could be as much as mix in looks and traits as in blood. I'd do some research on each of the three breeds out of curiosity and watch to see if he favors one, but I'd expect him to be his own singular blend.
