What is the name of the dog breed that is a cross between a Doberman and a German Shepherd?

Hey everyone,

I am in the market for a new dog and am really interested in getting a mix between a Doberman and German Shepherd. I have heard that these types of dogs are incredibly loyal and great for families, but I don't know much else about them.

I am wondering if anyone here knows what the name of this specific dog breed is called, so that I can do some more research and make an informed decision before adopting. Also, if anyone has any experience owning this type of dog or has any advice, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

I have never owned a Doberman/German Shepherd mix, but my sister has one and she absolutely loves it. Her dog, Zeus, is incredibly smart and friendly with everyone he meets. He is also very loyal to my sister and her family, which gives them a sense of security.

From my observation, Zeus is definitely an energetic dog and needs regular exercise to maintain his good behavior. My sister takes him for daily walks and plays fetch with him in the backyard. She also takes him to dog parks on weekends to socialize with other dogs.

I don't know the official name for this breed mix either, but I have heard them referred to as "Dobermanshepherds" or simply "Doberman German Shepherd mixes". Either way, they are great dogs and make wonderful additions to any family.

I hope this helps!


Hi there,

I don't have any personal experience owning a Doberman/German Shepherd mix, but a friend of mine has one that I have interacted with quite a bit. From my observation, these dogs can be wonderful companions but require a lot of attention and training.

My friend's Doberman/German Shepherd mix is very friendly and sociable, but also quite hyperactive. He needs a lot of exercise and stimulation, or else he becomes quite destructive in the house. My friend has found that taking him for long walks and playing lots of games with him helps to tire him out and keeps him from getting into trouble.

When it comes to the breed name, I have also heard them referred to as "Dobermanshepherds" or "Doberman Shepherds", but it seems to depend on who you ask. In general, though, these dogs seem to be well-loved by their owners and make great family pets.

I hope this information is helpful!


Hey there,

I actually have experience owning a Doberman/German Shepherd mix and can attest to their loyalty and family-friendly nature. My dog, Luna, was incredibly intelligent and easy to train. She was also very protective of our family and would always be by our side.

The only thing to keep in mind is that this type of mix can have a lot of energy and require a lot of exercise. Luna needed a lot of walks and playtime to expend her energy, and we found that it helped with her overall behavior and mood.

In terms of the breed name, I've heard them referred to as "Dobieshep" or "Doberman Shepherds" but I am not sure if there is an official name. Hopefully, someone else can chime in with more information.

Overall, I would highly recommend this breed mix to anyone looking for a loyal and energetic addition to their family.



I have had my Doberman/German Shepherd mix for over a year now, and I can confirm that these are fantastic dogs to own. My dog, Max, has such a playful and friendly personality, making it easier to get along with everyone in the family.

Max loves being around people all the time and is very keen on going for long walks every day. He is very active and he must get his daily exercise through a combination of lengthy outdoor breaks and games like fetch or frisbee. When he gets enough time outside, he is cheerful in the home and able to relax.

Can't really trace the true name of this breed mix, but there seems to be some discrepancies in what people have named the breed. Aside from that, owning a Doberman/German Shepherd mix has been such a delight for us, and I would suggest that anyone with an active lifestyle and an appreciation for canines consider giving these dogs a look.

Thank you.


Hey everyone,

I have been considering getting a Doberman/German Shepherd mix and have been learning a lot from reading about personal experiences in this thread. From what I have gathered, these dogs are extremely loyal and family-friendly, but also require a lot of attention and exercise.

I have experience with both Dobermans and German Shepherds individually, but have never owned a mix. My concern is that these two breeds can have somewhat different temperaments, and I wonder how the combination of the two might manifest in a hybrid dog.

I am particularly interested in hearing from anyone who has owned both a Doberman and a German Shepherd, as well as their mix breed. How does the mix compare to the individual breeds in terms of personality, exercise needs, and behavior around humans and other animals?

Thank you in advance for any insight you can provide!


Hello everyone,

I currently own a Doberman/German Shepherd mix and I can tell you from my personal experience that this breed is a great addition to any family. My dog, Duke, has such a friendly demeanor and he is very good with kids.
Duke is a mix of two highly intelligent breeds, and this is evident in his behavior. He is very trainable and quick to learn new commands. He also loves to run and play, so he requires a lot of exercise every day.

Personality-wise, Duke acts more like a German Shepherd than a Doberman. He is not as aggressive as purebred Dobermans can be, but he does have a good bark that is a wonderful deterrent to unwanted visitors.

I definitely recommend the Doberman/German Shepherd mix to anyone who is looking for a loyal and intelligent canine companion. They are extremely clever and crave human interaction.

In conclusion, if you are looking to add a Doberman/German Shepherd mix to your family, just ensure to provide them with enough exercise, training and plenty of love.
