Crossbreeds That Might Be New To You

It’s not a “new” thing. Crossbreeding has been around forever.

But there has been more of a spotlight on crossing well known breeds. These are sometimes called “designer dogs” or just “mutts” – which is more accurate. Either way, we end up with some of the most adorable things on the face of the earth.

While this dog (yes, the one that looks like it came off the set of Coco) are an ancient breed.

However, they’re actually not pure breeds. They’re often called hybrids or just mutts. It’s the kind of pet that is so awkward and ugly that it’s actually cute.

Labrottie

Reddit

AKA Labrador + Rottweiler

Rottweilers get a bad rap as being rough or dangerous animals. However, they’re actually very loyal and loving. Mix that with the intelligence of a Lab, and it’s quite an amazing dog. There is debate, however, if mixing pure breeds still results in high chances of genetic disorders.

AKA Husky + Pomeranian

Usually, the puppies from these pure moms and dads end up a Husky’s color and markings with the fluffy coat of a Pomeranian. They’ve only become a “thing” over recent years and are starting to gain popularity. But they are also high energy dogs that bark a lot.

AKA Corgi + Dalmatian

If you’ve ever met a Corgi owner, you’ll know they love their breeds like it’s another child in their clan. The mix with a Damatian makes them high energy but intelligent. If parents share the same temperament, they pups will definitely have it too.

AKA Golden Retriever + Dachshund

AKA Chihuahua + Pug

You might also hear them called Chugs (which is easier to say). The pups from these parents will be a bit of a mix bag – you never know what features you’ll end up with. But they’re also known for being a bit nervous like a Chihuahua.

AKA Pitbull + Husky

Pitskys range from medium to large and are very energetic as well as loyal. Anyone who has one of these really needs to live a face paced lifestyle. Interesting side fact – many people are debating if the price of a mixed dog should be as high as a pure breed.
