Mixed Breed Dogs

There are so many types of dog breeds out there and lots of definitions that get thrown around. Many definitions mean the same thing, they just have different connotations which are both negative and positive.

To start with a basic understanding of dog breeds, it can be helpful, to begin with a Mixed breed or a designer dog is a different name for what is essentially a mutt. While the word mutt can have a negative connotation, it simply means that the dog’s parents were not registered and both parents are not of the same breed. These types of dogs come in a variety of coat types and colors, shapes, and sizes that rival any purebred dog.

Here are the Mixture dog qualities. These dogs result from breeding different purebreds or other mixed-breed dogs together. Mixed breed dogs have no pedigree, and usually are the result of an accidental mating. They are usually not registered, although there are mixed-breed registries that may offer some sort of documentation. Mixed breed dogs often superficially resemble purebred. They can inherit all the best, or the worst, traits of their parents. It is hard if not impossible to predict what a mixed breed dog’s puppies will look like or how they will behave. Mixed-breed dogs make wonderful pets, though. They are a popular choice for pets all over the world.

Meet the real underdog — the one that is far more likely to end up in a shelter than a purebred. To adopt a mixed breed is to celebrate diversity and cheer for the little guy. It often means you are also giving a home to a dog who reeds one sincerely.

But there is also inevitably to own a practical side to adopting a mutt. They tend to be healthier than purebreds. A mix can be a softer, less intense version of a purebred. Some fans even say mutts are smarter; although, this claim is hard to verify.

But all that may be beside the point. Your little whatever-they-are will find a way into your heart, whether they are running down tennis balls thanks to their dash of Labrador, or snuggling in your lap — perhaps some Bichon Frise? Who knows, and — in the end — who cares? They are your dog!
