What’s All The Hype About Hybrids?

April 30, 2018

We’ve all been in situations where we’ve seen a dog or two and just couldn’t place the breed.

Yes, though we’re pet experts, some just slip our minds! The reality is that there are tons of breeds of dogs, but purebred and hybrid puppies are making it difficult to readily identify each!

So what exactly is a purebred?

They are dog breeds that encompass a unique genetic makeup that can be consistently reproduced. This means that any dog whose parents belong to the same breed is considered a purebred dog.

What are hybrid puppies?

Hybrid puppies are bred from two purebred dogs from different breeds, hence the term designer, which implies a bloodline created by mixing purebreds. Purebred puppies are simply puppies that are bred from two dogs of the same breed. If a dog is not purebred, it is considered to be a hybrid or mixed breed (commonly referred to as a mutt).

Are purebred puppies healthier?

Most hybrid puppies are pretty unpredictable in a lot ways, particularly regarding their health and inherited diseases. Purebreds are tested for issues usually known to affect the breed. This is to ensure only healthy dogs are being bred. Most diseases are being detected and eradicated this way. When breeds are crossed, it creates hybrid puppies with unknown results, thus they really can’t be tested in advance.

What are some of the most common hybrid puppies?

We’ve piled a list of the top 5 most popular hybrid puppies.

  • Cockapoo

A Cockapoo is a mixed breed dog that is the cross between either the Cocker Spaniel breed and a Poodle.

  • Labradoodle

  • Cheeks

The Cheeks, also known as Pek-A-Chis or Pekachis, are a hybrid between a Chihuahua and a Pekingese. Cheeks typically look more like Chihuahuas than the Pekingese, but this all depends on their breed line.
