According to wolfhybrid.org:
Wolf Hybrid Dogs are beautiful animals that possess high levels of intelligence. There are a number of sub-species of wolves which are bred with other dogs as pets, such as Arctic Tundra Wolves, Alaskan Interior Wolves, British Colombian Timber Wolves, and Eastern Timber Wolves. They are usually referred to as Wolf Dogs and are a cross between the wild wolf and any type of domestic dog.
Wolf dogs weigh about 100 lbs and are tall, around 26 inches, with long limbs and strong muscles. Their colors vary from shades of black to white and gray. Wolf dogs must be raised by their owners to make compatible friends. They develop very strong bonds with their owners, but require a lot of attention.
Wolf babies grow much faster than regular dog puppies, and they must be fed a soy-free dog food since they can not properly digest soy. They are very smart, strong, and have high endurance levels. It is recommended that they should be kept in pairs since they are pack animals. They should also have large contained areas for exercise, but should not be allowed outside unsupervised. They can live up to 17 years.

The Puggle is a mix of beagle and pug. Both the Pug and Beagle are notoriously difficult to train, so while this breed is cute, it's also a handful. Adult puggles weigh 15-30 lbs (7-14kg) and stand 10-15 inches tall. The average lifespan is 12-16 yrs.
The puggle has a pretty even temperament. He’s active, has a great personality, and is easy on the eye. Friendly with other dogs and people, the Pug in him is laid back, easy-going, and a terrific family pet. The Beagle in him wants to hunt and track prey, but is also a fine family pet. However, puggles are talkative hybrids and are prone to separation anxiety. If your schedule requires your dog to be alone for long hours, be sure to puppy-proof your house - and be prepared for complaints from the neighbors.

The Corgi's temperament is highly intelligent, loyal, and able and willing to please its owners.

Which means this adorable little guy is going to have a lot of energy!

DoodlesDoodles come from Golden Retrievers or Labradors that usually have been bred with Standard Poodles, resulting in furry puddles that resemble Muppets. The size of the Doodle depends on its parentage. Breeders often offer a range, including Standard, Medium, and Miniature Doodles. To estimate how big a puppy will be, you can add both the parents' weights together and divide by 2.
Miniature - A Dood that is predicted to be 15-30 lbs at adulthood.
Medium - Predicted to be 30-45 lbs at adulthood.
Standard - Predicted to be 45 lbs or more at adulthood.
Doodle hybrids are hypoallergenic, and most puppies seem to inherit the best characteristics of both breeds. The Doodle temperament is loyal, intelligent, and kind. These hybrids have become favorites for children and therapy dogs.
