Popular Designer Dog Breeds Facts

1 May

Do you know your designer dogs? What’s a designer dog anyway? How are they bred and how much do they cost? We’re talking about Goldendoodles (Golden Retreiver + Poodles), Cavachons (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel + Bichon Frise), and Puggles (Pugs + Beagles), just to name a few of the high-end mixed breeds you can find in your local park or in the arms of celebrities like Ellen Degeneres and Miley Cyrus, both of whom own Malitpoos (a mixture of a Maltese and a Poodle.)

Well, wonder no more! PetCareRx has designer dogs completely covered in our new infographic, which explains everything from the first known case of a designer breed (a Labradoodle) to the economics involved in breeding those puppies.

For instance, did you know many designer dogs live longer than their purebred ancestors? While costing 25-50% more? Or that the American Kennel Club recognizes three times as many designer breeds as purebreds? You will once you read our infographic! Enough with the words.

    As someone who owns a beautiful pure bred dog, why would you restate one of these over priced mixed breeds live longer than a pure bred? That’s not exactly something that should be stated so loosely. The last thing the dog world needs is to have more false information floating around regarding these “breeds”… I don’t think they need to promoted and I am quite surprised this “fact” chart was reposted here.

    This is a neat infographic, that’s undeniable, but like the other commenter, I have some concerns. I was pretty interested in the idea of designer hybrid dogs (http://www.ranker.com/list/the-cutest-hybrid-dogs/nicolebreanne got me intrigued) but then I read that often these dogs end up in shelters right from the breeders because they don’t turn out as desired and thus can’t be sold for the hundreds or thousands as planned. Any thoughts on that?

    Mixes are not breeds, no matter how many purebreds are in a dog’s ancestry. This doesn’t mean that they aren’t great dogs, but please do be careful to publish factual information.
