Get all branches/specific branches with shallow clone


I am having a huge repository so it's not a good idea to clone it all. I use shallow cloning to clone it using the command:

git clone --depth [size] <remote-url:ssh> 

 When I am done with it I found it just clone default branch there are no other branches.

Afterward, I used below command but nothing changed

git fetch --all
git pull --all 

I also tried below command but it ends up with an error

1. git checkout <branchName>

=> error: pathspec 'qa' did not match any file(s) known to git

2. git checkout -b <branchName> --track <remote/branchName>

=>fatal: 'origin/qa' is not a commit and a branch 'qa' cannot be created from it

Is there any way to complete this request. If yes, please let me know.
