The Top 20 Mixed Dog Breeds in the World

When a pure-bred dog is bred with a pure-bred from a different breed the result is a distinctive crossbreed or mixed breed pup which combines the most notable properties of both. The debate about whether mixed breeds or pure-bred dogs are better has raged for many years but of late mixed breed dogs have become fashionable. Sometimes called designer dogs, fans claim that crossbreeding results in adorable puppies that combine the best characteristics of both breeds.

It is true that pure-bred dogs possess a set of predictable characteristics including temperament, size and color. To a very great extent, the dog owner knows what kind of dog their puppy will grow into and can determine what kind of breed will best suit their home and lifestyle. However, pedigree dogs are frequently susceptible to genetic disease. While all puppies are vulnerable to defective genes, a pedigree pup is at a higher risk of inheriting genetic conditions because of the potential that its parents, belonging to the same breed, share many of the same genes including the faulty ones.

Mixed breed dogs or mutts tend to be healthier and have a longer lifespan because of this. However, they can be prone to behavioral issues and if you get a mixed bred puppy there’s no telling what size he will grow to. When one adorable breed is crossed with another adorable breed the result is simply adorable. And the hybrid names are adorable too.

Here’s a list of our picks for the top 20 and most popular mixed breed dogs:
