When it comes to looking for a new furry friend of the canine kind there are certainly a lot of different breeds for an animal lover to choose from. Pure breeds are nice, if you can find the right pup, but increasingly people are falling in love with cross breed dogs; cute canines who are the perfect combination of two beloved breeds.
Cross breeding happens by accident and on purpose and often the result is a puppy that is not only amazingly adorable but hardier and healthier than many pure breeds. Want to see what we mean? Check out these cute cross breed dogs, we guarantee you’ll fall in love!
The Weimaraner is a big, tough hunter, originally bred for 19th European royalty to use for hunting. The Boxer is also European, and known for a friendly temperament and great intelligence. Put them together, in the form of a Boweimar and you get a smart, loyal and clever cutie who makes a fantastic family pet.
In their pure bred form Alaskan Malamutes are probably as close as you can get to having a real live wolf live in your home, just one with a friendlier temperament. They are, however, big dogs – as in very big dogs. By ‘downsizing’ these pack leading pups by crossbreeding with a lovely Labrador you get a Malador; a pup as clever as he is strong.
Even if you have seen 101 Dalmatians in your time (pardon the pun) we bet you’ve never seen one quite like this one, a Dalmatian crossed with a more diminutive bulldog, a pup known as a Bullmation. With that squishy nose and all of those spots who could possibly resist this little guy?
When you cross the regal King Charles Spaniel with a boisterous Beagle, one of the best hunting dogs in the world, you end up with a lively, loyal furry companion like this beautiful little Beaglier.
Did you know that Queen Elizabeth II of England owns both her famous Corgi companions and a small pack of Labrador Retrievers who accompany her on the hunting trips she still takes around her estates at the grand old age of 90? The one dog she does not own though is one of these charming Corgidors, the perfect combination of the two.
This noble chap is a combination of a Beagle and a Doberman Pinscher. As both dogs are clever hunters and very loyal the mix is a great one and just look at that serious, but super cute face!
This little pup might have a bit of a problem pulling a big sled like his pure bred Husky cousins can, but what he lacks in size this corgi mix makes up for in pure charm.
The Papillon is a Spanish dog known for its beautiful butterfly wing ears and love of being cuddled. A Papshund boasts a downsized version of those ears as well as all of the sturdy strength of a Dachshund.
The hunting and tracking prowess of the Labrador Retriever is legendary, but it becomes even stronger when you mix in the scent sniffing skills of a Blood Hound. And even if the only thing this little guy ever hunts for is extra kibble you can be sure he’d do a great job.
Here’s another ‘take’ on a beagle, this time a beagle mixed with a tiny Chihuahua , creating one of the cutest little lap dogs you’ll ever see.
11. German Shepherd and Chihuahua Mix
German Shepherds are some of the toughest, hardworking dogs to be found anywhere. The breed of choice for police departments worldwide, they also make amazing guard dogs. And although this playful pup has been shrunk considerably in size thanks to his Chihuahua side he still looks like he’d be a loyal and clever friend, just maybe not such a tough guy.
12. Beagle and German Shepherd Mix
And speaking of German Shepherds here’s one that was mixed with a beagle, so he must have quite the fearsome howl (even though he looks so very sweet.)
13. Corman Shepherd
When you mix two breeds you never know quite what you’ll get, especially if one is rather large but the other is rather small. This dapper doggie seems to have turned out to be just the right size though, and certainly a lovely looking combination of two beautiful breeds.
14. Pomeranian and Australian Shepherd
This striking looking pup looks a lot like a cuddly living teddy bear! He is however a combination of the very hard working Australian Shepherd and the often pampered Pomeranian. And look at those eyes, amazing aren’t they?
Some tiny Chihuahuas are real tough guys (and girls) despite their small size. Combine this attitude with a Pug and you get this little fella. He looks a bit mean but he’s a cute cuddler really.
What else can you consider cross breeding a pugnacious Pug dog with? How about a frisky French Bulldog? The combination is a perfect one, we mean just look at those cute paws and that squishy little nose!
The eyes are what you see first on the precious pup and he has those icy blue beauties thanks to his Husky heritage. The gorgeous golden brown markings come from his Pit Bull side however, creating a striking mix that is impossible not to love.
18. Sharp Asset
Sharp Asset is certainly a cool name for any dog breed but it suits this one especially well. Half wonderfully wrinkly Shar Pei and half beautiful Basset Hound this stately looking stud must turn head wherever he goes.
19. Gerberian Shepsky
This German Shepherd is certainly a very fluffy representative of her breed. Or is he? Her fluffy fur is actually thanks to her Husky heritage, proving once again, as all of these delightful dogs do, that when you mix two great dog breeds you only get something even greater!
