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.
