The Top 5 Cutest “Hybrid” Puppies
You think you know cute puppies? Wait till you see these!
#1: The Auggie
Australian Shepherds are beautiful working dogs, known for keeping the flock in line on the farm. Pembroke Welsh Corgis, well, they are the Queen’s favorite for a reason! Combining the colorful coats of the Aussie breed with the stout little frame of the Corgi can result in a gorgeous baby. Whether she will prefer snoozing in luxury to romping outside is yet to be determined.
Price tag: $800.00 to $1500.00
#2: The Golden Collie
If these little fellows don’t melt your heart, you might want to call the cardiologist. A perfect combination of the iconic family pet breed- the Golden Retriever, mixed with what has been named the smartest type of dog known today, the Border Collie. We don’t want to think about the shedding, but we do want to think about the snuggles!
Price tag: Usually, they are adopted rather than bred, so $200.00+
#3: The Cavachon
If one wanted to weaponize pupper-power and slay with pure sweetness, one would not be wrong to start with these babies. A combo of Cavalier King Charles and Bichon Frise, not only are they wonderful with children, this mix is hypoallergenic. So what could possibly be the drawback?! Well…
Price tag: $5,000.00 to $7,500.00 (yes, that’s U.S. dollars!)
#4: The Jug Dog
It turns out mixing the smart and energetic Jack Russell terrier with the heavy breathing, smushy-face Pug is a win/win. Jack Russells are brilliant but incredibly naughty, and Pugs are plagued with serious genetic problems, so finding a mix that incorporates their cuteness without the drawbacks is a huge bonus! Keep in mind this mix has a long average lifespan- about 15 years- which means a serious commitment by any potential owner.
Price tag: $200.00 to $700.00
#5: The Pomsky
This little fluffball is too cute for words! Their lustrous coats come in varied shades, including red, gray, white and black (and often have the blue or dichromatic blue/black eyes!), and they grow to be much smaller than a typical Husky, yet somewhat larger than an adult Pomeranian. They tend to be escape artists and somewhat yippy- to be expected for any critter with Pom in them! Breeders have to use artificial insemination to create these litters, because the size difference between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian is simply too difficult for nature to overcome.
Price tag: $1,500.00 to $3,000.00
Remember, not all hybrids mean 50/50; the pups could be 25% of one breed and 75% the other. Designer breeds are essentially just mutts, and you know where you can find one of those who is just as cute for thousands less- your local rescue or shelter!
