Aussiedor Characteristics

The Aussiedor is a unique hybrid mix between a Labrador Retriever and an Australian Shepherd. These two popular dog breeds combine to make a fantastic family companion, retaining all the best features from each parent. While a tad on the energetic side, these intelligent dogs respond well to obedience training and early socialization.

Also known as the Australian Sheprador, Aussie Sheprador, Aussie Lab, Sheprador, and just plain old Australian Shepherd Lab Mix, the Aussiedor comes with many titles. Standing about 22-25 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 40-80 pounds, the size of your Aussiedor depends greatly on the parents that created it. These dogs come in a multitude of coats, including tri-color, chocolate, and black, and are often not recommended for those with allergies, as they shed quite a lot.
 
Descending from the Labrador and the Australian Shepherd, the Aussiedor also loves to remain active and will do anything to please its human. These dogs excel at agility games, flyball, and obstacle courses. However, these energetic dogs have a tendency to turn destructive if their exercise needs are not met. Early obedience training and sufficient exercise are important to ensure your Aussiedor is well behaved and obedient while you're away.
 
The Aussiedor breed may have some of the hereditary health conditions that the Australian Shepherd and Labrador Retriever pass down. Because they’re a mix, they can avoid most issues, but might be vulnerable to issues like elbow dysplasia, hip dysplasia, and cataracts. Regular trips to the vet will help ensure a long and healthy life for your Aussiedor.
 

How dog-friendly is Alabama?

Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon! 

 

Here’s what you should know about Alabama.

 

Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.

 

Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.

Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?

Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.

Birmingham

Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama

BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.

 

Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%. 

 

What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama

Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period. 

Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
