What is a mix of Doberman and German Shepherd called?

Hey everyone, I've been considering getting a new puppy and I've been doing some research on different breeds. I've become really interested in Doberman Pinschers and German Shepherds, but I can't decide between the two! So I was wondering, what would happen if you mixed the two breeds together? What is a Doberman/German Shepherd mix called? Would they get along with kids and be good family dogs? Any information or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi everyone! I'd like to share my personal experience with a Doberman/German Shepherd mix. My dog, Luna, is the sweetest dog I've ever had. She's very affectionate and loves to cuddle. She also gets along well with kids and has never shown any signs of aggression towards them.

Luna is a small Doberman/German Shepherd mix, weighing around 40 pounds. She has a very unique look, with the Doberman's sleek body and the German Shepherd's coloring and fur pattern. Her bark is not too loud, but she still makes a great watchdog.

One thing I've noticed about Luna is that she can be very sensitive. Loud noises and sudden movements can startle her, so it's important to be gentle with her. She also needs a lot of attention and can get anxious if she's left alone for too long.

In terms of exercise, Luna doesn't need as much as other Doberman/German Shepherd mixes. A daily walk and some playtime in the backyard are enough to keep her happy and healthy.

As for the name, we named her after the moon since she has a unique and striking appearance. But like others have said, the name isn't as important as the dog's personality.

Overall, I think a Doberman/German Shepherd mix can make a great family pet, as long as you are aware of their exercise and attention needs, and are gentle and patient with them.


Hi there! I actually have personal experience with a Doberman/German Shepherd mix. My dog, Max, is a combination of the two breeds and he's been an amazing addition to our family. He's very loyal and protective, but also loves to play with our kids. He's a big dog, but he's gentle and patient with the little ones.

As for the name, I've heard them called "Doberman Shepherds" or "Dobermansheps" for short. But honestly, the name doesn't matter as much as the personality and temperament of the dog.

I will say that it's important to keep in mind that both of these breeds are very active and need a lot of exercise and mental stimulation. So if you don't have the time or space to provide that, a Doberman/German Shepherd mix might not be the best fit for your family. But if you're up for the challenge, they can be wonderful, loving pets!


Hello everyone! I want to chime in on this topic as I have personal experience with a Doberman/German Shepherd mix. My dog, Rocky, is a 2-year-old German Doberman and he's been an excellent addition to our family.

Rocky is a very intelligent dog and has been easy to train. He's great with children, very gentle and patient with them. He's also very protective of me and my family, which makes us feel safe and secure. He loves to go for long walks and runs, so it's important that he gets enough exercise every day.

I must say that Rocky has a very unique look. He has the Doberman's sleek, muscular build, but he has the distinctive German Shepherd face, ears, and fur pattern with a mix of black and tan color. His eyes are a beautiful amber color which glows in the sun. And his bark is not too loud, which is a nice feature to have as we live in an apartment.

In terms of the name, I've heard of people calling them "Dobermanshepherds" or simply "Doberman/German Shepherd mix". But regardless of the name, I can honestly say that this mix can make for a wonderful companion and protector.


Hey there! I actually used to work at an animal shelter and we had a Doberman/German Shepherd mix that was up for adoption. His name was Max (funny coincidence!) and he was the sweetest dog ever. He was very friendly with everyone and loved to cuddle. He was also very smart and learned commands quickly.

One thing to keep in mind with this mix is that they can have high energy levels and need a lot of exercise. Max was always up for a good walk or run, but he also loved to play and needed lots of mental stimulation. So if you have an active lifestyle and love spending time outside, this could be a great breed mix for you.

In terms of the name, I've heard people refer to them as "German Dobermans" as well. But like the previous poster said, the name isn't as important as the dog's personality and qualities.

All in all, I think a Doberman/German Shepherd mix can make a great family pet. They're loving, loyal, and smart, and they'll always keep you on your toes with their energy and playfulness.


Hello everyone! I am excited to add my personal experience to this forum. I have a 4-year-old Doberman/German Shepherd mix named Zeus. He is the most loyal and protective dog I have ever had. Zeus has a lot of energy and is always ready to play and run, but he can also be calm and cuddly when it's time to relax.

One of the things I love most about Zeus is his intelligence. He was easy to train and learns commands quickly. I can take him on walks without a leash, and he always stays close by. He has a very muscular build, like a Doberman, but with the fur pattern and coloring of a German Shepherd. He has a very distinctive bark, which makes him a great watchdog, but I have also found that he is friendly with people once he gets to know them.

I have found that Zeus needs a lot of exercise and mental stimulation, and he thrives in an active and engaging environment. He seems to be protective of our children, and they love to play with him. Zeus has become an important part of our family, and I am glad we chose a Doberman/German Shepherd mix when we were looking for a new dog.

As for the name, we call him "Zeus" as we liked the name's powerful sound for our strong and loyal protector. But honestly, the name doesn't matter as much as the dog's character.
