My girlfriend has a dog that is 7 yrs old, the animal shelter told her that it is a german shepard daschund mix. I cannot find any information on if it is possible i told her it is more likely it is a mix with a bassett houd because it looks very much like a german shepard on short legs and slightly larger ears than normal, am i right? thanks for the help
it would help a lot if you could put a picture of him on, then we would be able to see what he looks like and the suggest what he could be, but it is hard trying to describe a breed if you don't know what it looks like.
that is possible but dachsunds have extremely short legs also..
How old is it? How long is it? How much does it weigh? How tall is it (back to floor)? All this would help- as would a picture.
It is possible for a Shepherd and a daschund to mate. Hopefully the shepherd was the female, but I've heard of instances where the size difference was the other way around and the mother delivered her puppies just fine. In most cases the womb decides how big the pups are, and genetics comes into the picture after the puppies are born.
It is possible, unusual but possible. I have a Basset Hound/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. So trust me, there are some strange mixes out there! I think Basset sounds more likely.

I would definately say basset hound. Dachshunds are very small, very short dogs. It would be nearly impossible for one to mate with a german shepherd because of the height difference.
It is most assuredly possible. I know of a rottie chihuahua cross. If it really is or not would only be guessed at. A picture would help. :-)
