The process has become so popular, it even has a name: Designer Dogs. Unfortunately, searching for the perfect pet and continuos breeding has led to a lot of animals having serious health issues and remaining homeless, since people are reluctant to take them in when they’re anything less than “perfect”. Just remember to check your local animal shelter for your new best friend before you head out to spend thousands of dollars.
This doggo is another one who was mixed with a Poodle, and this time with a Maltese. Aside from Poodles being incredibly smart, they’ve also got a great coat of fur that is low maintenance and doesn’t shed. Malteses are also known for their coat, which has even been referred to as a “lion mane” for how long and luxurious it is.
When combined, you get this adorable, soft little ball of fluff. Maltipoos are known for being easy to train and get along with, and they can be great family dogs. They’re also especially great for cuddles, since they fit nicely on your lap!
Ah, the Jack-A-Poo, a cross between a Jack Russell Terrier and a Poodle. Both of these breeds are known for being very intelligent, which means that this dog will be super smart. Jack Russell’s are high energy, while Poodles are more low maintenance, so this guy will probably be pretty chill. Although, they still love to play!
This dog breed also requires a lot of attention, so don’t invest in a Jack-A-Poo if you don’t have the time to spare. They’re also known to be quite vocal, so keep that in mind!
Bullboxers are a cross between the Pitbull Terrier and the Boxer. Both dogs were originally bred as fighting dogs, but they’re also super sweet and loyal.

They’ve got fair amounts of energy and they need plenty of time to play, but they can also be very laid-back, if given the opportunity.
They do best in homes with large backyards or other big areas where they can roam. Like any dog, they need proper training to ensure they know the rules of their household, but they can make wonderful family pets.
The Chow Shepherd
The German Chow is the glorious mix of the family-favorite German Shepherd and the super cute Chow Chow. This breed, which is also known as the “Chow Shepherd,” is known for being intelligent…and big. This dog is not for someone who’s never owned a large breed before, as it can be challenging for first-timers.
This guy is also going to have a lot of energy, so that means he needs a lot of exercise. This is a perfect breed for an active family and those who have large fenced-in yards or live on lots of acreage, where the dog can run around. These guys love to play and are avid fans of a good game of fetch with their owners.
The Czech Wolf Dog

Considering the fact that these guys are literally bred for cool environments, they wouldn’t be happy living in warm areas. They’ve also been known to be a little bit too aggressive towards small animals, too, so they would do best with larger animals only. These guys need a lot of exercise due to their wild personality.
Morkies are a tiny little combination of the Yorkshire Terrier and the Maltese. The cross of those two small balls of fur results in this adorable little fluffy thing.

The Corgi shortens this breed a little bit, from its taller Husky side, and they’re typically medium in size. They can have beautiful markings, but they’re usually very fluffy and do best in cooler environments.
Siborgis typically have very even tempers and personalities, and they do great around children and other pets. This breed does need plenty of exercise, and they love to run around the dog park. Just make sure you get them socialized as a puppy so that being around other dogs isn’t a shock.
The Maltese Shih Tzu
They should really work on coming up with a more creative name for this breed, which is a mix of Maltese and Shih Tzu. Why hasn’t anyone started calling these guys Maltzus or something? This breed is known for being very gentle and kind-natured. Its loving personality makes it a wonderful dog for a family with children.

Pitskies are the incredible and adorable mix of pit bull terrier and husky. Huskies are fluffy good boys that hail from Siberia, and often worked as sled dogs.

The result of mixing these two breeds is pretty amazing. Meet: The Pitsky.
These guys are a great option if you live in a warmer climate but love huskies, since pure-bred Siberian sled dogs shouldn’t really live in Florida! This breed typically has a laid-back personality, and they make excellent companions for families.

These guys make great companions for people living in smaller homes, due to their short little legs – but that doesn’t mean they don’t need plenty of exercise still.

It is recommended to begin socialization training at a young age for the Terripoo, as they can lean towards a dominant attitude with other animals, if you don’t.

Although, after barking, there may not be much the 10-25-pound little guy can do for you under those circumstances!
They can adjust to living in either an apartment or a home where they have a large yard, but in either case, they do need at least 30 minutes of exercise every day. A simple half an hour stroll around the neighborhood or park will suffice. The Pugapoos coat can vary in length and color, but they don’t usually shed a lot compared to some other breeds.

Because of this, they’re a good choice for those who don’t have much experience with dogs (as long as you keep the above in mind!)

As with all dogs, we recommend implementing early socialization and training methods. This can help reduce behavioral and temperament issues, ensuring the health and happiness of everyone involved!
The Rottsky is an intentional hybrid, the combination of a large and muscular guard dog from Germany, the Rottweiler, and the Siberian Husky, an ancient canine that has been an integral part of life for the Chukchi people of Russia since before written history in the area.
This is an extremely athletic animal with a great deal of endurance and while they make excellent exercise partners and are typically loyal, dependable, and protective canines, they are far too active for apartment-like settings and can become highly destructive if not given the proper amount of exercise and mental stimulation.
The Golden Akita
The hybrid mix called the Golden Akita combines Golden Retriever and the Akita. While the Akita is known as an aggressive dog while the Golden Retriever is mellow. Despite their different temperaments, both parents are loving and loyal toward their families and affectionate with children. Golden Akitas usually resemble the Akita in appearance and are taller than the Golden Retriever.
However, the coat and some features may closely resemble the Golden Retriever. The goal of crossbreeding these parents is to produce a hybrid that resembles the Akita but has the disposition of the Golden Retriever.
But generally, they are an intelligent, active, and gentle dog with some very human aspects to their personality. This makes the borador a perfect companion for families with children or those with an active lifestyle. Sometimes used as service dogs, their high level of intellect and curiosity makes them easy to train.
They are energetic dogs that will require daily walks, loads of exercise, and stimulation like playing with their favorite toy. The Borador has fine, smooth hair all over, and their coat length is normally short to medium. They will have floppy ears, brown eyes, and a great smile! In general, they will resemble the Border Collie, with their markings and their general stockiness to them, but can carry the Labradors solid coloration and size.
The Spanador may not be a purebred dog, but this crossbreed combines two very popular breeds - Labrador Retriever and the American Cocker Spaniel. The best way to find out the temperament of any mixed breed is to look up the parent breeds and assume you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Most Spanadors will be smaller than the Labrador.
Their fur doesn't grow that long and can be a number of colors, with black and red being the two most common. While their dangling Spaniel-like ears only add to their attraction, some dogs may be more prone to get ear infections, so owners should be sure to clean out their ear canals regularly.
