Mixed-breed dogs have a lot of names. Sometimes they're called hybrids, designer breeds, or even mutts. A mixed-breed dog is basically any dog that's not a purebred. It can be the result of two different breeds, or many breeds. Mixing breeds is a great way to get the most desirable traits of each dog into one puppy. When dogs mix, their offspring have a 50% chance of getting any of their parent's characteristics.


1. Puggle

This hybrid between a beagle and a pug has been around for about 30 years. Since they were first bred in 1990, puggles have become very mainstream. Puggles are happy and energetic, but they still love a good cuddle. They're known to thrive in any type of home. It seems puggles are great pets for everyone, including celebrities. Jake Gyllenhaal, Sylvester Stallone, and Uma Thurman are puggle owners.
