Dog mixes, hybrid dogs, designer dogs, mixed breed dogs, mutts... There are a lot of names for these puppy dogs, but I just call them cute puppies. This is a list of the cutest dog mixes with the cute photos of hybrids. Some of the cutest dog breeds come from mixing breeds. Sometimes it's to get the best temperament - evident by the Doodle (Golden Retriever + Poodle), which has become a top choice for service dogs - or just to get really cute puppies. Who doesn't love a puppy? Maybe a small dog that looks like a puppy forever? Could such a dream pet even exist??
This photo gallery features the cutest dogs that were completely created by man. That's right: man took wolves, domesticated them, and eventually turned them into tiny little fluff balls that can't fend for themselves... but they're really cute! So be warned these puppy pics will have you baby-talking to your computer screen in a seconds flat. Vote up the pictures of the cutest dog mixes, and add any that are missing.
A combination of a domestic dog and a wolf--yes, we're talking the wild kind here--this breed is a bit of a controversy. According to the International Wolf Center:
"Whether or not hybrids make good pets is perhaps the biggest contention. Some people have outstanding success with hybrids as pets so to make a blanket statement is difficult. The reality is that there is an animal with a genetic stew that includes contributions from a line of dogs that has been domesticated over the centuries compiled with a contribution of an animal that has not."
Poodles are highly coveted for cross-breeding because their puppies are born with hypoallergenic fur. They also have some of the highest canine intelligence ratings and wonderful temperaments. The St. Berdoodle mix is a Poodle and St. Bernard - one of the gentlest known breeds.
If you love Bulldogs, the American Bulldog / English Bulldog hybrid is the breed for you. It's all bulldog, all day long.
They have temperaments that are kind, resolute, and courageous. Rarely vicious or aggressive, they are good with children and other pets.
Corgi Dalmatian Hybrid
This little cutey is a cross between a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and Dalmatian. There are many adorable corgi hybrids, but this one made the list for its mix of two very distinctive looks.
The traditional Corgi's temperament is highly intelligent, loyal, and able and willing to please its owners. Corgis are extremely active and are good with children, so long as the dog sees them above him in the pack order.
Dalmatians are known to be fun-loving, people-oriented dogs who thrive in a family environments. They are high-energy pets and require daily exercise on a leash or within a fenced area. The breed's short coat sheds almost year-round, but regular brushing helps minimize the shedding.
Which means this adorable little guy is going to have a lot of energy!
