Hybrid Dogs, Designer Dogs, Mixed Breed Dogs, Mutts there are a lot of names for these puppy dogs, but I just call them cute puppies. This is a list of the cutest hybrid dogs (with the pictures to prove it) some of the cutest dog breeds come from mixing breeds. Sometimes it's to get the best temperament--as evident by the Doodle breed which has become the top choice for service dogs, or just to get a really cute dog. Who doesn't love a puppy? They're cute, they're cuddly, and they can be designer. This list complied the cutest dogs that were completely created by man. That's right, man took wolves, domesticated them and eventually turned them into tiny little fluff balls that can't fend for themselves...but they're really cute! So be warned these puppy pics will have you baby-talking to your computer screen in a seconds flat!
This is a cross between a Maltese and Poodle they are friendly dogs, with a lot of spunk. They are highly intelligent and make great house pets. They range in size from 9-20 pounds and can be anywhere from 12-24 inches. They are not recognized by the AKC so there's not much technical information on them.
The Puggle, this is mix of a beagle and pug...both the Pug and Beagle are somewhat difficult to train so while this breed is cute, it's also difficult. Their weight: 15 — 30 lbs (7-14kg), with a height if roughly 10” — 15” and a lifespan up to 16 yrs. This dog has a pretty even temperament. He’s active, has a great personality and is easy on the eye. Friendly with other dogs and people, the Pug in him is laid back, easy-going and a terrific family pet. The Beagle in him wants to hunt and track prey but is also a fine family pet. However, puggles are talkative breeds and are prone to separation anxiety. So if you plan to be out, make sure you're neighbors are understanding.
American Bandogge Mastiff
This dog is recognized by the AKC and according to them: The Bandogge is an extremely intelligent dog. Confident and very docile. Like all mastiffs, they should have an owner who is capable of staying dominant over the dog. They are not usually recommended as a good choice for first time dog owners, because they need someone who truly understands canine instinct and how to properly communicate what it is you want from him. Although not bred as fighting dogs, if they are with a passive owner, who does not know how to communicate aggression is not acceptable, they may become dog aggressive.
These large animals have a life expectancy of about 10 years and have a weight of 100 -140 pounds (45-63 kg.) and a height of 25-29 inches (63-73 cm.) Females tend to be smaller.
Poodles are an excellent breed to mix with because it turns any dog into a hypoallergenic pet. They also have one of the highest intelligence ratings and wonderful temperaments. This mix is a Poodle and St. Bernard, another hybrid dog not recognized by the AKC so there's no technical information but both breeds have excellent temperaments, so you really can't go wrong.
Doodles are Golden Retrievers or Labradors that usually have been bred with Standard Poodles and resemble Muppets. The size of the Doodle depends on its parentage. Breeders often offer a range including Standard, Medium and Miniature. A general rule of thumb is to add both the parents weights together and divide by 2 to get an average adult weight on the puppies. Within any litter there may be puppies that fall above or below the projected adult weights. Some Standard sized have grown to over 100 pounds.
Standard - a Dood that is predicted to be 45 lbs or more at adulthood.
Medium - predicted to be 30-45 lbs at adulthood.
Miniature - predicted to be 15-30 lbs at adulthood.
They are hypoallergenic, and seem to get the best of both breeds. Their temperament is loyal, intelligent, and kind. They have become the top breed for children and therapy dogs.
According to wolfhybrid.org:
Wolf Hybrid Dogs are beautiful animals that possess high level of intelligence. There are a number of sub-species of wolves which are bred with other dogs as pets, such as Arctic Tundra Wolves, Alaskan
Interior Wolves, British Colombian Timber Wolves and Eastern Timber Wolves. They are usually referred to as Wolf Dogs and are a cross between the wild wolf and any type of domestic dog. They weigh about 100 lbs and are tall around 26 inches. Their color varies from shades of black to white and gray. Wolf dogs must be raised by their owner to make a compatible friend. They develop a very strong bond with their owners, but require a lot of attention. Wolf babies grow much faster than dog puppies and must be fed a soy-free dog food since they can not properly digest soy. They are very smart, strong and have high endurance levels. It is recommended that they should be kept in pairs since they are pack animals. Wolf hybrid must have containment area since they are not allowed to run unsupervised.

Their weight is anywhere from 80 to 100 pounds. They are a large, white, muscular dog that was developed in Argentina primarily for the purpose of big-game hunting, including wild boar and puma; the breeder, Antonio Nores Martinez, also wanted a dog that would exhibit steadfast bravery and willingly protect its human companion to the death. It was first bred in 1928, from the Cordoba Fighting Dog along with a wide array of other breeds including, but not limited to,the Great Pyrenees, Irish Wolfhound, Boxer, Great Dane, and Pointer.
The Dogo Argentino was specifically bred to be fierce hunters, but then to go home to the hunters families and be gentle with the family. Dogo Argentinos are protective of what they perceive as their territory and will guard it against any intruder. They get along with other dogs as long as they have been properly socialized, but will usually not tolerate another dog trying to assert dominance over them, therefore they might not coexist peacefully with another dominant breed of dog. The dogo has a life expectancy of nine (9) to fifteen (15) years.
