About the Sheprador
The Sheprador is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Australian Shepherd and the Labrador Retriever. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Sheprador is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

Shepradors vary in maintenance largely due to the variety of coat types and hair length. Some Shepradors share the coat of the Australian Shepherd purebreds and require more maintenance due to their coat length and the fineness of the individual hairs. Those with coats similar to Labradors generally require less maintenance due to the shortness of the hair, the thickness of the hairs and the near constant shedding in Spring and Fall.
