While they can vary within the same litter, think of Pomskies as smaller, fluffier Siberian Huskies thanks to their Pomeranian DNA. These little guys usually weigh between 20 and 30 pounds.
Take a Welsh Corgi and a Labrador Retriever, and you end up with a medium-weight, somewhat short-legged dog. Knowing what type of Corgi parent your pup had can also provide valuable info, as Cardigan Welsh Corgis get bigger than the Pembroke kind.
The Cockapoo (part cocker spaniel, part poodle) is one of the most popular mixed-breed dogs. They aren’t prone to shedding and can be easily trained, making them a great choice for families.
It might not be the most elegant name, but the Chug (a chihuahua-pug mix) is certainly interesting! They are the perfect size for cuddling in your lap, which has made this mixed breed more and more popular.
Morkies are a seriously cute cross between a Maltese and a Yorkshire terrier. They’re small, but certainly not timid! Morkies tend to love attention and stay protective of their families.
A charming cross between a Shih Tzu and a poodle, the Shih-poo has plenty of personality. They tend to be a bit stubborn, but when you look at that little face, you just can’t be mad. Shih-poos can have curlier fur (reflecting their poodle heritage), but they can also have silky fur (from their Shih Tzu background).
Schnoodle are another great poodle hybrid. This time, the cross is with a schnauzer. Smart and playful, this mix can really run the gamut between teeny lapdogs and huge 70-plus pounders (just like poodles).
This very popular crossbreed is half Golden Retriever and half poodle. If you’re lucky enough to own one, you’ll have a loyal friend who is always up for some playtime.
You might be pleasantly surprised to learn that Mastiff mixes are known for having a gentle disposition. The phrase “gentle giant” most certainly comes to mind.
