Have you heard of Cockapoo, Pomsky, or Chorkie? All these are “designer dog breeds” that are getting popular among dog lovers.
Strictly speaking, they are not true breeds. The designer dogs are born from purebred Cocker Spaniels and Poodles (Cockapoo), Pomeranians and Huskies (Pomsky), Chihuahuas, and Yorkshire Terriers (Chorkie) but they remain only mutts.
Then why do people breed and own them?
Stephany Fofano lists some popular designer dog breeds:
- Maltipoo ( Maltese + Poodle)
- Cockapoo (Cocker Spaniel + Poodle)
- Goldendoodle (Golden Retriever + Poodle)
- Pomsky (Pomeranian + Husky)
- Labradoodle ( Labrador Retriever + Poodle)
- Puggle ( Pug + Beagle)
- Chorkie ( Chihuahua + Yorkshire Terrier)
- DoxiePoo ( Dachshund + Poodle)
- Malshi ( Maltese + Shih Tzu)
- Pomapoo (Pomeranian + Poodle)

LInda Ragonese: You never mention Morkies. They are adorable and very lovable.
KarenVS&Rexie: Morkies (Maltese/Yorkie) are immensely popular. Everyone I mention my darling Rexie to (in Santa Hat in Photo) has heard of morkies. They are super cute and very loyal and protective and stay cute up till old age. Dog group member said she has had dogs before but a morkie is a real trip. They are characters. Rexie is supervisor of our home. :-)

I did a cross of an Argentine Dogo female and a Turkish Kangal male (Anatolian Shepard) . The pups were beautiful.I kept two but unfortunately one passed last Sept from heart failure The remaining pups (they will be 3 yrs old this May) are fantastic. Thou not as big as their daddy, they are very fordable animals.
I have had many people state that they would be a wonderful breed by themselves. The thing is at my age (74) I am not about to become a breeder. Also,I care too much about the pups to just sell them to anyone with the dollars. I was lucky enough to sell my pups to friends who take wonderful care of them.
I had someone who had a female Pressa and wanted to cross her with my Kangal. I turned them down. There are too many unwanted dogs already, and although the pups would have been beautiful and cute within a year they wouldn’t be cute and without the proper socialization and training , they would be well on their way to being very dangerous animals who could only look forward to getting put down and I would NEVER be a part of that.
Crossbreeds are cute and fun when dealing with smaller dogs, but you have to be very carefu when crossing the larger, aggressive breeds.
Thank you all Have a wonderful year!
