What are the new designer dog breeds?

The New Breeds

In recent years, there has been a rise in the breeding of specific mixed breeds to create what aficionados refer to as "designer dogs" and what naysayers refer to as simply mutts.

The most common of these new breeds are Poodle crosses, due to a Poodle's lack of shedding. This means almost no allergy rate in their human owners. Some of the common mixes are the following:

Labradoodle - a Labrador Retriever and Poodle mix
Yorkipoo – a Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle mix
Cockapoo – a Cocker Spaniel and Poodle mix
Schnoodle – a Schnauzer and Poodle mix

If you are considering a Poodle mix, or other mixed breed, keep in mind the resultant dog could have physical and temperament attributes of either parent breed.
