While there are so many gorgeous dog breeds in the world to appreciate, crossbreeds often make the cutest dogs of all, especially the more unusual combinations.
By, 4 Jan 2020
The canine community is full of hundreds of different dog breeds that each have their own distinctive characteristics and come in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes. You only need to check out Instagram to see the wonderful variety of dogs. But have you ever wondered what happens when you combine some of these distinctive dog breeds?
Mixed breeds are nothing new, but there are some more unusual combinations that you may not yet have heard of.
The rarest cross-breed in this list, the Corgimatian is the size of a Corgi but has the very distinctive black spotty coat of, yes, you’ve guessed it, a Dalmatian. If you want a puppy-sized Dalmatian that won't ever grow up, then this pup could be the ideal crossbreed for you.
You are unlikely to find a dog breed with a name cuter than this one. The Chiweenie has the lively personality of your typical Dachshund combined with the intelligence of a Chihuahua. It makes the perfect sized dog for anyone living in a small house or flat or just prefers pint-sized pups.
When you combine a Pug and a Chihuahua the result is a quirky and loveable mix called the Chug. These dogs make great canine companions especially if you like to travel or just enjoy cuddles on the sofa. While they love nothing more than getting the undivided attention of their owners, they don't need as much exercise as other breeds so they won't be wanting long walks.
If your dream dog has plenty of energy and loves adventure, then the Labmaraner could be the pawfect breed for you. A mix of Labrador and Weimaraner, with such athletic and energetic parents, you can look forward to a canine companion that will always be ready to accompany you on runs and swims.
The Golden Dox is the result of the unusual combination of a big dog breed, the Golden Retriever and a small dog breed, the Dachshund. It has the long and low shape of the Dachshund, and the gorgeous coat of the Golden Retriever.
They may be two of the most popular family dog breeds, but when you combine a Golden Retriever with a Siberian Husky, you get a Goberian. These friendly, intelligent and very energetic pups are great for a big family and best suited for big houses.
The adorable Yorkipoo is the result of the combination of two of the cutest toy dog breeds, a Toy Poodle and a Yorkshire Terrier. But while they may be small dogs, what they lack in size, they certainly make up for in attitude and personality. They retain the distinctive yap associated with toy dog breeds and are pretty adaptable to most living spaces.
They may just look like giant furballs, but Chuskys develop very close bonds with their owners while making very effective guard dogs. They are a unique combination of the Chow Chow and the Siberian Husky. Underneath all that fur is a very energetic dog who loves nothing more than to run around (as long as they also get plenty of cuddles too).
The huge bonus of crossbreeds is that they often take the best qualities from both parents and this is certainly true of the Beagador. This dog has the friendliness and personality of a Labrador and the tracking nose of a Beagle. While it looks similar to a standard Labrador, its Beagle heritage shows in floppy ears and a slightly smaller frame.
Which one of these is your favourite? We love all of them!
