My apocalypse breed is coming together.oh my god. I don't know if I should cry or ask to be put on the waiting list.
Also, I really hope that any Sham babies would take after Linney or the mother in size.
GSD'S,belgian Malinois,Belgian shepherds,Bouvier and Rottweilers are herding + guardian breeds.My vote at the moment is herding + guardian. The reasons are kind of obvious, but.
You combine intelligence, drive and energy (as well as a tendency to bond hard with a single person) with stubborn, protective and enormous and the result is... something.
Well, it'll herd and guard your livestock, I guess? If you can convince it to care. They're popular/fairly common (though usually BCXPyr), but it just seems like a conflict to me, even if you remove Thud's weirdness from the concept.

I admit that with my rotty who has decent intelligence,drive,energy yet head strong,sharp and protective. If he had even more energy it would be a nightmare.
I have seen a border collie/Rottweiler mix,and heard of another and they where not bad dogs.
I saw sign before advertising wolf/pit bull mixes,that seems like a nightmare combination. I also heard long ago of a rescued wolf/pit bull mix that was used in dog fighting in Mexico.
I OWN a Rott x Shar pei mix....someone who intentionally bred one would HAVE to be INSANE. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE Tazzerin...but I would NOT trust 99% of common people to own a dog like him...I know a Shar Pei x Rottweiler mix. His litter was planned... 8 puppies, he's the only one alive today. His siblings all attacked their owners... and one killed a Papillon. Yasko, the only one alive, is dog aggressive and has bitten a human. The town is trying to put him down as well- he attacked a Schafer and almost killed it.
That's a train wreck!
I actually know someone with that exact mix. The worst part is that they actually got it from a breeder.Bulldog x Basset Hound
Ultimate laziness, ultimate stubborness.
Physically it would be a nightmare too. Brachy, plus heavy set, massive wrinkles and bow legs.
I knew someone who had a GSD/Golden mix - it was an AWESOME dog! It was like the two different temperaments balanced eachother out. He was goofy & friendly, but also wouldn't hesitate to get between his owner and potential "danger".Muggsy. He was a GSD x Golden Retriever. I've known more than a few and while they were all gorgeous (please don't take my sig as a good representation. Muggsy was stunning. We couldn't go outside without someone commenting on him.), the temperaments were iffy at best.
GSD (proper) temperament: aloof with strangers, deeply loyal to owner, serious
Golden (proper) temperament: goofy, friendly with everyone, playful
Now try and mix those. You can't. What you end up with is a dog confused by its own temperament. Don't get me wrong, I'd cut off my left arm for another month with Muggsy, but his temperament was an issue.
One of those apocalypse mixes TWAB mentioned! I can picture a dog of that mix spontaneously combusting....lolI wouldn't even want to think of living with a Mal/BC. That is intensity on top of intensity.
I have a Border Collie and my sister has a Staffy puppy. OMG!, the two of them together, handful!.There was a borderstaffy at the last trial... That dog was insane. In a fantastic super loud way. It was amazing how loud that thing screeched. Super fast too.
