20 Adorable Photos of Hybrid Dogs You'll Fall in Love With

Hybrid Dogs, sometimes called Mixed Breed Dogs, Designer Dogs, or Cross Breed Dogs, are dogs that have been intentionally bred from two or more purebred pooches. Needless to say, purebred pups have their charms and are celebrated with dog shows. However, Hybrid or Cross Breed Dogs are multi-talented and striking in appearance and deserve love, too.

Depending on their blended backgrounds, Mixed Breed Dogs are unique and can vary in size, look, and temperament, just like Hybrid Cats. Some popular Hybrid Dogs such as Cockapoo ( a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle) and Chiweenie ( a cross between a Chihuahua and a Dachshund), are known to be the best of both parents. Below, I list some of the most popular and unusual Mixed Breed Dogs that can bring as much love, joy, and happiness as any purebred dog to your home.
