Just wondering if anyone has experience with a Staffy x German Shepherd as my boyfriend and I are looking at a gorgeous little puppy tonight. Both parents are purebred, but I was wondering what to expect in terms of size and coat? Smile

It's very hard to say which breed the pups will most resemble. The coat will be short (I take it the GSD is short coated). That's about as much as you can say.

Both breeds can be quite protective so you would have to socialise well.

Was this a planned mating or accidental?

That's a gorgeous dog.
There could be so many variations within the one litter as well. Millie is a lab x collie and out of a litter of 7 there was only 2 the same. All different sizes, coat lengths, colours. Millie is a dinky wee thing compared to her brothers and sisters lol.

And the intelligence levels of a Staff x GSD tend to be quite awesome!

Thanks for all your replies guys, this is my first time writing on a forum and everyone is so helpful!
Her mum was the Staffy and her dad the German Shepherd.
I haven't had a pup since I was young, any suggestions on how to toilet train her?

Ahhhhh, she's gorgeous! I'm sorry but you can't have her, please send her to me Big Grin cool white patch around her muzzle though.

As for toilet-training, take her outside every 30 minutes or so, and after eating and after she wakes up. Stay there until she does something, and then give her lots of praise and happiness. Just keep up with it and she'll eventually get the hang of it. If she does something in the house, don't shout at her or anything, just take her outside.

Ah, lovely puppy! To my eye, she looks to have quite a lot of GSD signs, so with any luck she will have inherited some of the GSD more "trainable" characteristics.

(No slur on Staffs you understand, but my Staff pup is "I'm mad, I am!!!" and the training is more hard work than it was with my other dogs (not GSDs).

Hoping to see you on this forum often - it's a great website.

Lovely pup. But i get so cross when people let large dogs breed with smaller ones, esp staffs who already have a hard time birthing.

Hope she is as sweet as she looks and is a pleasure for you x

Why do Staffs have a harder time giving birth than other breeds?

Cause of their big ole noggins. The heads of large dog pups can get stuck in the birth canal. Can happen to any dog of course but bulls and staffs are more prone to it.

Haha she's so cute, don't you think the white patch looks a bit like ying/yang? Thanks for the advice, appreciate it Smile

We moved her to her bed in the laundry as we've set up newspaper and water etc there but as soon as the door was closed she was crying and yelping for ages and we couldn't stand it so she's out in the lounge with us. But we can't keep her here as there are chords we're afraid she'll chew on.

I read it's best to designate an area of the house for her to sleep, but how do we get her acclimated to it? Do we just put up with the crying? And is it bad to shut the door on her?.. we just don't want her getting into trouble roaming the house. So many questions!

Unfortunately, you have to ignore it. She's crying because she wants attention, or she's lonely, missing her mum and siblings, etc. She'll settle down once she's more settled, but don't give her attention when she cries, cos it teaches her that her crying means attention. Just make sure she's nice and comfy and warm, and leave a radio on low for her to listen to. Sound made Loki worse Laughing but it's meant to work, and it works for most dogs.

Feel free to keep asking any questions you have in the future, and also keep us updated with pictures Big Grin

Also, most of us on here are advocates of crate training. Bacchus is my 4th dog and I took a bit of convincing as I had the old " cruel cage " mentality but thanks to this site I saw the error of my ways Laughing

Wish I'd known about crates 40 years ago. Bacchus loves his crate and it was a great help with toilet training.

I have a Staffy x German Shepherd and she looks nothing like yours.
But that doesn't mean they don't share other traits. My dog is a freaking escape artist. I couldn't figure out how she was getting out for ages, but then I "left" one day and saw her, cleared the 6ft fence in 2 seconds flat. We increased the fence size and she started going under - the little darling. She really loves the company of people. I once borrowed a dog to see if company is what she craved, she left poor Lady alone in my yard and went to play with the neighbour's kid.

She's a really fast runner and needs to play catch or run or swim every day, and gets sooky if I miss a day. But she was a breeze to train. Toilet training took just a few days and 1-2 accidents, she sits patiently next to her bowl until I tell her it's okay to eat. Sometimes I've forgotten to tell her and she's sat the confused while our pet chickens steal food from her bowl.

If you're still around on the forum, I'd love to hear how their traits compare.

yep that's it

As for toilet training, buy some pads, mark them with puppy piss when he will do pee pee on the floor, clear everything possibly with some odour killer ( vinegar is okay ), because your guy will piss in few chosen point's. Praise him when he pees on toilet pad, and ofcourse learn his toilet routine ( or as a puppy lack of routine Big Grin ), and when he is ready, take him outside and make pee pee poo poo business with him, praise him, and repeat. When he will learn, belive me, he will start asking you to get him out Smile
