What’s a designer dog you wonder? A designer dog is a mix of two purebred dog breeds. Usually, they are crossed with the hopes of getting the best of both breeds…and sometimes the results end up looking very original!

The most common of designer dogs are poodle crosses, for instance Golden or Labradoodles. Indeed, Poodles have the advantage of having a hypoallergenic coat, so mixing them with other breeds sometimes makes the resulting offspring hypoallergenic too!
However, there are dozens of new designer breeds popping up everywhere, especially since they’re typically healthier than purebreds.
Check out our Top Ten Designer Dogs below:
1. Golden Doodle : Golden Retriever/Poodle
With the Golden’s loyal face and friendly disposition, as well as the Poodle’s hypoallergenic coat, this is a perfect family dog!
2. Pomsky: Pomeranian/Husky
Striking Pomeranian fluff and, if you’re lucky, piercing blue Husky eyes, the Pomsky is a perfect mix of beautiful AND athletic!
Less wrinkles than the SharPei but a longer snout than the Bulldog, this designer dog is a robust, life-loving breed!
With a bit more muscle than the Chihuahua but a longer snout than the Pug, the Puhuahua may be the quintessential lap dog!
