Choosing a dog breed: more small dogs and mixed breeds

Posted by Mords1944 on July 15th, 2020


I love old movies with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. In 'Shall We Dance', Fred and Ginger are sailing across the Atlantic on Queen Anne. Ginger stops at the boat's busy kennel and takes his dog out. As Fred, Ginger, and their dog walk back and forth on the deck, the puppy steps on her sleeve and ruins her sweater. How adorable! Standing by the railing, Ginger holds her fluffy-faced dog as Fred sings "I'm lucky for beginners." Can you guess the breed of the dog? My personal opinion is that this cute dog is a Maltipoo instead of a Havanese or Bichon Frize. Agree? There are many สายพันธุ์สุนัชทั่วโลก dog breeds. Some of the best small dogs are not purebred, but mixed breeds technically called crosses. Before buying or adopting a small dog, it is a good idea to research different breeds to find out which dog is right for you.

Mixed races (crosses)

Maltipoo- The Malti-Poo is a crossbreed because it is a cross between 2 different purebred dog breeds: the Maltese and the poodle. This adorable little dog often has its tail fluffy back. Characteristics in mixed breeds are less predictable than in pure breeds. Be sure to consult a trusted breeder or shelter about the qualities you are looking for in your dog before purchasing a mixed dog. The Maltipoo is an active and loving pet. They do well with other pets, but not with young children. They require regular cleaning. Maltipoo are good apartment dogs as long as they get enough exercise.

Morkie- Also called the Yorktese, this dog is a cross between a Maltese and a Yorkshire Terrier. The Morkie is very small, loving and loyal. With training they can get along well with other pets and older children. They need regular cleaning. The Yorktese can be an apartment dog as long as you exercise regularly. They make better watchdogs than Maltipoo.

Puggle: The Puggle is slightly larger than the Maltipoo and often has the wonderful characteristics of beagles and pugs. Puggles are good with children and other pets. They like human interaction and a lot of exercise. These dogs require regular grooming and are alert guard dogs.

Cockapoo: These dogs have adorable faces framed by fluffy, curly ears. They are half cocker spaniel and half poodle. Poodle crossings are often popular because poodles do not come off, making them good for people with allergies. The Cockapoo needs regular grooming, but is a particularly short dog. Very playful and loving, this dog is a popular pet. They are good with children and other pets. Like poodles and cocker spaniels, Cockapoo is very smart. They like a lot of exercise. An apartment can be fine as long as it walks the Cockapoo frequently.

Shih-Poo- Little Shihpoo has the cute eyes and face of the Shih Tzu with some curly poodle hair. They are better with older children and can get along with other training pets. Loyal and loving, they are good guard dogs. Shih-Poo requires regular preparation. This dog likes attention and does very well in an apartment.

Goldendoodle: These dogs are a cross between golden retrievers and poodles. They can be small to medium or large in size. Consult a quality breeder about their sizes. They are usually a beautiful cream or gold color, although they can be found in red coats. Goldendoodles are very smart and versatile dogs, like poodles and golden retrievers. They do well both indoors and outdoors. They require some grooming and exercise, but much less than golden retrievers. They are generally low drop. Goldendoodles are good with children and other pets.

Westiepoo: These beautiful dogs are a cross between a West Highland White Terrier and a poodle. They are similar in appearance to the Maltipoo, except that they are larger, being almost a medium-sized dog. Also Westiepoo 50/50 crosses will have layers that are only white. They do well with older children and other trained pets. Regular grooming is recommended. Very low shedding, they are good for allergy sufferers. They also like a lot of attention, which means they don't like being left alone. The Westiepoo can live in an apartment with regular exercise.

Maltipom: These very small dogs can look like fluffy white stuffed animals. A cross between a Maltese and a Pomeranian can also be found in other colors. These dogs are energetic and loyal, making good small guard dogs. The Maltipom works well with older children and can get along well with other trained pets.
