The Australian Shepherd Pitbull is a cross between the Australian Shepherd and the American Pitbull Terrier. This doggo was initially bred in the United States in the late 1990s as a companion dog. This dog breed goes by a couple of other nicknames, such as the Pitbull Australian Shepherd Mix or the Aussie Pit. Overall, this dog breed is sweet, loyal, and energetic.

Where to get Australian Shepherd Pitbull Puppies

If you want to get this dog breed, you can certainly begin your search at your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. For example, they might have Australian Shepherd Pitbull puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption. Sometimes, they might have super mutts with these two breeds plus more in one.

Most of these dogs have been abandoned or surrendered by their previous owners, so it’s a good idea to begin here. You should also adopt and not shop.

However, if you have your heart set on getting a puppy and want to know where the dog came from, you can go through a reputable breeder. Unfortunately, since this breed is a designer dog, the American Kennel Club doesn’t recognize it. So, you’ll need to find ethical breeders on your own. Roxie…

Luckily, you can tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with their vaccinations
  • Want to meet with you in person and allow you to meet the parents the litter
  • Be open and honest with any questions you might have about the breeder, the breed, the parents, the puppies, or the breeding or adoption processes
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption

In addition, a good breeder will also keep the dogs in their home, treating them like family. They won’t use kennels unless it’s for crate training.

If you find breeders who do not follow the above, they might be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill. Avoid these breeders since they don’t breed the dogs under safe or healthy conidtions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes. 

The Cost

The price might vary depending on the breeder’s location, the time of year, or the breed’s popularity. However, the average cost of Australian Shepherd Pitbull puppies is between $250 and $1,000.

Appearance

Australian Shepherd Pitbull puppies will grow to be large dogs. For example, they can grow about 17 to 23 inches tall and weigh between 30 and 85 pounds. They can look like either parent breed but often have a longer coat. Their coat colors can be solid or mixed, such as blue merle, black, red merle, or cream.

Temperament

There’s a lot to love about this mixed breed. For example, Australian Shepherd Pitbull puppies are loyal and affectionate with their family members. They’re known to be sweet-natured. In addition, they’re great around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people. However, as with all dog breeds, they need early socialization and training. Luckily, this dog breed is easy to train. However, if you’ve never owned a dog before, you can hire a professional dog trainer to help you.

In addition, they’re a great watchdog and will bark to alert you of anything. But, on the other hand, they don’t bark much at all. Sometimes, they’ll become vocal when they get a little too excited. However, this designer dog is a relatively quiet breed.

Finally, this doggo has high energy levels. They won’t live well in an apartment and need a bigger house with a fenced-in yard. Also, they’ll enjoy at least 90 minutes of physical activity per day from long walks, jogs, hikes, and more. Micha…

Australian Shepherd Pitbull Puppies – Veterinary Needs

This mixed breed has an average lifespan of about ten to 16 years with proper care.

That’s why you’ll want to bring them to the vet frequently during their first year. You’ll be able to keep track of their growth and development. Then, for every year after that, you can bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup.

For example, this hybrid is relatively healthy, but they can inherit specific health issues from their parents, such as:

Diet

With your vet’s approval, you can feed this doggo anything appropriate for their breed size, age, and weight. For example, you can give your Australian Shepherd Pitbull high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food.

Grooming

Even though this doggo has a longer coat, it’s easy to groom. You can bring them to a professional grooming salon once a month for a good cleaning, clipping, and bath. Alternatively, you can bathe them yourself at home for some bonding time.

However, this dog breed does shed a good amount. So, you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a week to keep it clean and to keep the loose hairs under control.

Other than that, be sure to keep up with brushing their teeth, cleaning their ears, and trimming their nails regularly.
