Goberian History

The Goberian is a mixed-breed dog that is the result of breeding the Giant Schnauzer with the American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT). The Goberian is a mixed-breed resulting from selective breeding between the German Shepherd and the Pitbull. The Goberian is a cross-hybrid resulting from the mating of the mid- to large size American Pit Bull Terrier female with a male German Shepherd. The APBT and German Shepherd are crosses of two different breeds. The APBT is a cross of the bulldog and terrier. The APBT is descended from Old English Bulldogs, which were crossed with Bull and Terrier Bulls. The Bulldog is descended from the Mastiff. The Bulldog was bred specifically as a fighting dog. The Pitbull, or American Staffordshire Terrier, is a cross of the English Bulldog and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a bloodhound-type of terrier that was bred to fight.

Goberian Activity Requirements

The Goberian is a relatively new breed of dog, having only just been recognized in 2008. This rare breed originated in Russia, and is closely related to the Siberian Husky. These dogs are bred for sport and companionship. Goberians can be high-energy or low-energy, depending on the individual. Some will get along fine with a short walk every day, while others will need to be entertained with games and puzzles. While they are not as high-energy as other breeds, they do require a lot of exercise and mental stimulation. If you live in an apartment and don’t have a lot of time for walks, this isn’t the breed for you. However, if you have a fenced-in yard and an active lifestyle, this is a wonderful, fun-loving, loyal companion.
