A Complete List of the Most Desired and Special Mix Dog Breeds

Mix breeds of dogs
Crossbreeding of purebred dogs give rise to many of the mix breeds that we see today. A description of a few of such hybrid dogs is given in this article.
Did You Know?
Crossbreeding reduces the negative traits of purebreds. It helps in creating more genetically enhanced breeds with positive qualities and are more desired by human for their novelty.
For a dog to be called a mixed breed, the breeding should occur without human intervention. On the contrary, when humans breed two dogs of pure breeds, then the offspring is called a crossbred dog. Even though these terms are distinct from one another, people tend to use the word 'mix breed' as a blanket term for all hybrid dogs. The misnomer, 'mix breed' is even more confusing as it can also refer to a dog whose parental lineage is unknown or quite difficult to find. A dog of crossbreeding origins is named after his purebred parents. Generally, a portmanteau of the parent dogs' names are preferred. For example, a crossbreed of Rottweiler and Doberman is called Rotterman. Most crossbreeds are developed as pets, rather than for any commercial use like hunting, racing or herding.

The following is a list of crossbreeds of dogs that have originated from the top five most favorite purebred dogs. The names of these dogs are derived from their parents' names.

As long as there are different breeds of dogs evolving every time, we may continue to get new and unique breeds of dogs. Nevertheless, crossbreeding without logically thinking of the consequences, may produce undesired outcomes. Even though, many crossbreeds are found to be tougher than their purebred parents, crossbreeding the hybrids can dilute this effect, thus giving rise to weak offspring.

Though purebred or crossbred dogs are much coveted by dog-lovers, a good old mutt (another name for a mix breed) is also quite adorable and is as unique as any other dog. Perhaps, not knowing his ancestry adds an element of mystery to his personality and he might readily spring a big surprise on you from time to time.
