What are the most popular crossbreeds?
Crossbreeds have seen a huge surge in popularity in the last decade. Ever wondered what the most popular crossbreeds are? If you’re thinking about getting a mixed breed pooch, or want to see if your crossbreed made the most popular list, read on!
Mix: Cocker Spaniel and Poodle
Perhaps the most popular mixed breed out there, Cockapoos are a bundle of bouncing joy. They’re high energy dogs with a passion for play and being out and about. Not only are they extremely active, they’re also very intelligent and form close bonds with their owners. It’s worth noting that Cockapoos need a lot of exercise and mental stimulation, so they’re more suited to owners that lead active lifestyles and can spend time keeping their brains engaged.
Mix: Cocker Spaniel and Labrador
Cockadors are cute, friendly, energetic and extremely clever so it’s no surprise they’ve become a fast favourite amongst pet owners in the UK. They’re very easy to train and they enjoy learning new tricks, much to the delight of pet parents. Cockadors have strong retrieval instincts so with a bit effort, you’ll have them fetching your socks for you in no time!
Mix: Labrador and Poodle
If you’re looking for a dog that’s sociable and affectionate, a Labradoodle is the breed for you! They get on well with other pets and kids, making them great family dogs. Labradoodles love playing games and need mental as well as physical stimulation to keep them happy and healthy.
Mix: Golden Retriever and Poodle
If you’re looking for a patient pooch with a heart of gold, then a Goldendoodle is the perfect mixed breed for you. This loveable mix makes for a great family dog due to their gentle and affectionate nature. Goldendoodles get a 10/10 in the loyalty department too as they would do anything to protect their owners.
Mix: Pug and Beagle
Puggles are nothing if not willful and spirited. This mix of breeds tends to result in dogs with larger than life personalities, but they’re loving and loyal too. They get on well with other dogs and tend to be generally sweet-natured. Hands up if you want a Puggle!
Mix: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Poodle
This laid-back mix is perfect for relaxed pet owners that enjoy relaxing on the sofa rather than outdoor hikes. Cavapoos are well-known for being exceptionally devoted to their owners and are extremely curious about everything around them. They’re currently the most popular mixed breed in Australia and it’s no wonder why!
Mix: Border Collie and Springer Spaniel
If you want a dog that has more energy than you ever thought possible, look no further than a Sprollie. They’re extremely obedient when trained properly and love being assigned tasks (thanks to the collie in them). They need quite a lot of exercise and mental stimulation so they’re not for the faint hearted. Sprollies love nothing better than a lavishing of praise and affection from their owners.
Mix: Maltese and Poodle
Despite their compact little body, Maltipoos are a force to be reckoned with. They’re very alert (with a tendency to bark incessantly at passersby), but friendly and sociable when they’ve been raised correctly. Maltipoos are loyal by nature and love being close to their owners at all times once a bond has been formed.
Mix: Chihuahua and Yorkshire Terrier
Chihuahua and Yorkshire Terrier crossbreeds are nothing short of adorable. Don’t let their small size fool you though, Shorkies are fearless and very protective of their home and the people they’re close to. Because of this, they have a tendency to be very vocal but their bark is definitely worse than their bite. Shorkies are exceptionally loyal, cuddly and likely to follow their owners around everywhere they go.
Mix: Pekingese and Poodle
Peekaboo! Oh, if it’s not the cutest dog you’ve ever seen. Pekingese and Poodle (usually of the miniature variety) crossbreeds are definitely blessed in the looks department. This super cute mix is bred for companionship and they tend to have a lot of love to give. Reminiscent of a cuddly teddy bear, they were actually one of the first ever mixed breeds from a Poodle! Their outgoing personalities make them all the more loveable.
