The Golden Shepherd is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Golden Retriever and German Shepherd dog breeds. Large, energetic, and loyal, these pups inherited some of the best qualities from both of their parents. The Golden Shepherd is also called Golden German Shepherd, German Retriever, or just German Shepherd Golden Retriever. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed-breed dogs in shelters and breed specific rescues, so remember to adopt! Don’t shop! Golden Shepherds are not a great choice for novice pet owners, but if you’re an experienced dog parent looking for a watch dog and all around family companion, this pup may be for you! Big homes with yards are ideal but not required, as long as they get plenty of exercise. While Golden Shepherds are not excessively barky, they will alert when strangers approach. These dogs are protective of their loved ones and friendly with people, children, and other dogs. Don’t leave them alone for long periods, though, or else they may become bored and destructive.
