It was bound to happen: the combination of almost any and every dog breed under the sun. You may have heard of the Yorkie Poo or the Labra Doodle, or even the Schnoodle (all common Poodle mixes), but what about the Chug? How about the Corgle? Well, be prepared for a cuteness overload, because these crossbreeds are giving a new meaning to what it means to be a mutt:
- Chug – Chihuahua Pug Mix: Combining the petite frame of the Chihuahua with the Pug’s bulkier body, the Chug is a small but stocky middle-ground between the two. The face is an interesting blend of the Pug’s well-known “pushed-in” nose, and the Chihuahua’s skull and facial structure. Some Chugs’ eyes are more “bug-eyed” like a Chihuahua’s, and the forehead is larger and pronounced than a purebred Pug’s. The ears of the Chug could either be floppy like a Pug’s, or straight and vertical like a Chihuahua’s. The coloring of the fur usually is the Pug’s dominant trait – the trademark tan body with black snout. With the degree of variance that is possible, who knows how many ridiculously cute varieties there could be?
- Pitsky – Pit Bull Siberian Husky Mix: Pit Bulls and Siberian Huskies are both extremely popular dogs, so it comes as no surprise that they have now combined forces. The Pitsky has the size and long limbs of the Husky, but a Pit Bull’s build and skull structure. Most Pitskies have Husky fur coloring as well as texture, and straight Husky ears that perk upwards; some Pitskies even have two different colored eyes, which is a Husky trait. Perhaps the most noticeable Pit Bull trait is the wide snout and face, which is drastically different than the narrow facial structure of the purebred Siberian Husky.
- Corgle – Welsh Corgi and Beagle Mix: Beagles are one of the most well-known dogs, especially among families who are looking for a medium-sized, even-tempered family pet. Corgis are sought after for similar reasons, although they tend to be more excitable and rambunctious. They could not look more different, with the Beagle’s athletic build, long limbs, and floppy ears – and the Corgi’s stocky figure, stumpy legs, and upward-facing straight ears. It is extremely interesting to see how these features all collide in the Corgle, which seems to basically be a Corgi with Beagle coloring. However, there are some Corgles that have floppy ears and a slimmer build, so you never know what you’re going to get!
- Golden Dox – Golden Retriever and Dachsund Mix: Imagine a Golden Retriever, but scaled down to half its normal size, and with much shorter legs. If it looks like these pictures, then you are pretty close to the mark! The size of a Dachsund makes the Golden Dox about medium-sized with stubby legs, but the definitive long-haired, “golden” coat along with the bone and facial structure is obviously Golden Retriever. In fact, most Golden Doxes look like a mad scientist attached a Golden Retriever head to a Dachsund body!
- Bullmation – Bulldog and Dalmation Mix: This is quite an unusual look for Bulldogs, who usually have a couple spots here and there – but not everywhere! The Bullmation seems to be a Bulldog with a Dalmation’s iconic spotted coloring pattern, but with Bulldog everything else. A variation of the Bullmation can also be a Pit Bull mixed with a Dalmation, which produces a similar effect except with Pit Bull body attributes. The sharing of these two gene pools seems to be pretty black and white (pun intended) in the sense that the only physical attribute from the Dalmation is the spotted coat.
There are absolutely endless possibilities as far as dog crossbreeding is concerned! Especially if two crossbreeds are bred together, then there are several different gene pools that are being dipped into. Try searching for any crossbreed that you can think of, I’m sure it exists! Heck, I have seen a Pit Bull Chihuahua blend before, and I don’t even want to know how that happened!
