The Ten Most Popular Mixed Breed Dogs

cockapoo2

Mixed breed dogs have become an extremely popular type of dog over the past 20 years or so. Many folks now like mixed breeds because some breeds offer dogs that don’t shed. Others just love the way these dogs look. And in other times a mixed breed will actually bring a mix of personalities that owners tend to love. With that being said our sponsors at Dogtime have listed their picks for the top ten mixed dog breeds and we wanted to share it with out in case you had any ideas of adopting or purchasing one. Enjoy all these beautiful mixed breed dogs in the pages that follow.

cockapoo

1. Cockapoo

A cross of Cocker Spaniel and Poodle, the joyful and endearing Cockapoo is the original “designer dog.”  When you own one of these you have the added bonus of the amazing hair of a poodle and that playful and lovable, yet wild personality of the Cocker Spaniel.

maltipoo

2. Maltipoo

One part Maltese, one part Poodle, yields a dog with a fun-loving and affectionate nature.  We have yet to meet an owner of a Maltipoo that didn’t rave about this dog.  Relatively low maintenance, little shedding and just a pleasure to be around at all times.

labradoodle

3. Labradoodle

An intelligent and friendly dog, the Labradoodle is a Labrador Retriever-Poodle hybrid.  We must say this is one of the better looking dog breeds out there.  The labradoodle got all the best looks from both worlds.  We need to scoop one up right now!

goldendoodle

4. Goldendoodle

Another “designer dog,” this pooch results from breeding a Poodle with a Golden Retriever.  The nice thing about these dogs is that they’re extremely smart which both the Poodle and Golden Retriever dogs are.  In fact some are as smart as small children.

maltese shih tzu

5. Maltese Shih Tzu

One of the few “designer dogs” who isn’t one of the “Poo” or “Doodle” hybrids, as he’s a cross between a Maltese and Shih Tzu.  You’ll definitely be catching many of these breeds at dogs shows around the world.  They’re just too cute!

puggle

6. Puggle

Cute looks, fun-loving personality, this Beagle-Pug combo seems to have it all.  We couldn’t think of a cuter combo than this.  That face screams pug and yet the beagle body make the dog look like a hunter.  We just hope that the personalities carry over.

Schnoodle

7. Schnoodle

Cross a Poodle with a Schnauzer and you get a lap dog, a family dog, a therapy dog, or a performance dog.  Could you even ask for a better combination.  The Schnoodle is a testament to why you should consider getting a cross breed for your home.

peekapoo

8. Peekapoo

Loyal and affectionate, this Pekingese-Poodle cross can be quite protective of the people he loves.

yorkipoo

9. Yorkipoo

A cross between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Miniature Poodle, this dog is especially suited to apartment life.  Photo credit – Peter Mutto

10. Goldador

Get ready to get some exercise with this good-natured working dog who’s a mix of Golden Retriever and Labrador Retriever.
