Think you can puzzle out this combo name? It’s Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bichon Frise smushed together – a perfectly adorable mash-up for a perfectly adorable fluffball.
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.
Labs have reigned supreme as the most popular dog breed for nearly 30 years now, so it’s no surprise their prized traits also frequently appear in mixed breeds. This combo with a Siberian Husky is slightly smaller than its purebred cousins.
Weimaraners possess trademark silvery-gray coats, but combine one with a Labrador retriever and you’ll see them in a variety of glossy colors. With two athletic parents, these pups can exhibit boundless energy yet a friendly temperament.
You can easily scoop up a Shorkie — a Shih Tzu and Yorkshire terrier hybrid — with one arm for a quick cuddle. They typically weigh less than 15 pounds.
Though they don’t have a fun name just yet, the border collie-Shetland sheepdog combo is one of our favorite mixed breeds. They’re gentle, athletic, and oh-so photogenic.
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.
Clocking in at 15 pounds or less, Yorkshire terrier-poodle crosses marry the best of both worlds. These clever and playful companions get the benefit of hypoallergenic coats from both of their parents.
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.
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).
