OUTCROSSES

What is an Outcross (OTX)?

An Outcross is a non-Shiloh Shepherd dog that has been used in the breeding program. Throughout the development of the Breed, several Outcrosses have been used. [click on the names for more info]

Moved forward … 

These dogs have progeny that have moved forward within the breeding program and can be found within the pedigrees of many Shiloh Shepherds as official Outcrosses.

♦ (Samson Woo) Shiloh's Secret Samson-Woo

Samson-WOO

breed: Malamute-German Shepherd Cross

1986-2000; gray sable smooth (date of birth and date of death are approximate)

31″ 142# (approximate)

hips: recorded as excellent (unable to verify)

[pedigree] [breedings] – first used 1991; progeny moved forward

  • litter 1 1991 – 1F moved forward
  • litter 2 1991 – 1M & 3F moved forward
  • litter 3 1992 – 1F moved forward

Samson-Woo’s heritage is the source of much speculation and rumor:

  • There has been a persistent rumor of Samson-Woo being part wolf, but no evidence to-date, supports this claim.
  • He is alleged to have been born in a satellite breeding program to produce screen doubles for the TV show “The Littlest Hobo”.
  • There has been no evidence shown that he is a direct descendent of the famous London.
