Funny Photos of Dogs That Are Not Aware How Big They AreBy Jennifer Snow
Maybe you lucked out this Christmas season and got a new puppy as a present. For dog lovers, there could be no greater bliss than playing with a cute pup and watching it grow bigger and bigger thanks to your care. Many of us have fond childhood memories of Clifford the Big Red Dog, but did you realize the character was inspired by a genuine story? His size may have been ever so slightly exaggerated, but there are many surprisingly huge dog breeds out there.
These behemoths frequently become indispensable members of the families they’re adopted by as they give you more reasons to be happy and feel loved. Though they may seem imposing, these big beasts are so loving and adorable that they don’t even seem to realize how massive they are. Take a look at these incredibly gentle giants as they figure out how they fit in the world. Truth can be stranger than fiction.
These two monstrous pooches make phenomenal sitters. Take a gander at how mindful they are! This kid’s parents can go about their daily duties with confidence and peace of mind that their child is in good company.
On closer inspection, that box of treats might be what really has the doggos’ attention, but look how persistent they are! Who needs stuffed toys when you have these lovable canines to embrace? Imagine growing up with two giant buddies who will consistently have your back.
Love is everywhere! Monster puppies love a decent cuddle just as much as most humans do. Surely, though, a head that enormous must house a large brain. Could this goliath lovebug be some kind of genius?
With so much excess brain volume, possibly Rover will be able to teach his owner some things. Whatever this gentle giant may be thinking at the time, his eyes look like he truly is pondering something deep and meaningful.
This lovely puff-ball is almost large enough to be rideable. Perhaps they are going out for an appointment with her groomer. That thick, fancy coat is calling out for a decent brushing. An excellent monster like this requires a great deal of care and grooming.
We hope she appreciates her trips to the dog spa. Imagine cutting her nails! On the off chance that she’s at all defiant, we wouldn’t have any desire to be the ones to persuade her to sit still.
Hard to Please
Apparently, taking road trips with giant dogs is as troublesome as it sounds. If they aren’t motivated, it requires considerable exertion to persuade them to do what you need them to do. With this in mind, we give this child props for a valiant effort.
To be fair, perhaps the canine has a valid justification for being lazy about getting into the vehicle. Heaps of pets get nauseous, and no one wants to tidy up after a sick Newfoundland!
It’s difficult to discern whether Grandma is grinning or frowning here, but either way, you can tell the sweet, oversized pup’s goals are genuine. He’s full of love and wants a bit of attention.
That serious demeanor also suggests that this grey canine may really be safeguarding Grandma. Grandchildren can get pretty unruly. This giant pup is determined to make sure grandma is treated with the respect she deserves.
Three’s a Crowd
Alright, we aren’t exactly certain how to describe this one. The dog is clearly not harming her owner, however, something is out of order. It may very well be disappointment at the parrot. Huge canines don’t always like sharing the attention of their owners with anybody.
There’s nothing left to do now but clean up the mess and take the dog for a walk to get the rest of that energy out. It’s important to remember that getting a big dog means committing to a creature that has a whole lot of energy to expend each day.
This is what happens when energetic dogs are left to their own devices for too long! This big pup wanted some attention and took out all her frustrations on poor Mickey.
There’s nothing left to do now but clean up the mess and take the dog for a walk to get the rest of that energy out. It’s important to remember that getting a big dog means committing to a creature that has a whole lot of energy to expend each day.
These two St. Bernards nurture the family’s kid. They watch over her like two monster defenders. Nobody will mess with this adorable baby goat so long as these two giant guardians are around. St. Bernards have an innate desire to rescue and safeguard anyone who’s in need.
Generally, they have been utilized as rescue animals. Look how the canines flank the baby goat on two sides. This adorable little one will never have a worry so long as her guards are on duty.
Potential Dance Partner
No, that lady isn’t a diminutive person. She’s simply being towered over by her amazing Great Dane. Dogs of this breed are the tallest canines on the planet. This one seems as though it would make a wonderful dance partner.
Great Danes are known to be enormous softies. They have delicate qualities and make cherishing family pets. Despite their soft natures, they can also be successful watchdogs because who would run the risk of upsetting a giant like this?
The World’s Most Expensive Dog
Look at those tremendous paws. Tibetan Mastiffs are enormous canines that were bred to watch property and farm animals. They have also secured the title of “Most Expensive Dog in the World” after a Chinese entrepreneur spent $1.6 million on one!
Normally, this bear-like behemoth would cost about $10,000, which is far from a million but still very expensive. They are loving family members. However, they can be wary of outsiders. Dog lovers out there, are you ready to break into your emergency fund to take home one of these majestic creatures?
The World’s Biggest Lapdog
This St. Bernard doesn’t understand he’s a touch too large to be a lapdog – three laps may work, however. He looks so cozy! Hopefully, this woman doesn’t have to utilize the washroom any time soon.
She’s carrying a massive load there but still appears to be in a good mood. Can you blame her? St. Bernard’s are friendly and sweet canines. We have to admit, we’d happily share the load! However, they do shed-a ton. We bet she’ll have a lot of white fur on her jeans when she’s finally able to stand up.
You have to love the grin on this cheerful monster. He has some wild eyes though! Our fuzzy companion here is around 90% Grey Wolf with some Siberian Husky and German Shepard blended in.
This wolfdog lives at a national park in Florida, where he eats ten pounds of crude meat every week! He has sufficient canine in him to be tame yet at the same time would not do well in a house brimming with humans.
Like Mother, Like Son
Is it accurate to assume that we are seeing a mom and her pup? Conceivably. Whatever the case, this little delicate goliath-to-be has a lot to learn about the life of the huge canine. Fortunately, it appears he has a skilled educator on hand.
It’s crazy to think that this tiny little furball is going to grow into one of the largest canines around. He will arrive at his full height in about eighteen months. After that, he will keep on adding muscle for at least another six months.
The Giant Baby
This big guy is truly a baby on the most fundamental level. All he needs is to curl up in a friend or family member’s lap and take a long rest. Looks like he’s just about ready to conk out in this photograph.
Imagine trying to free yourself from the couch with this dormant beast on top of you. It’s probably worth extricating yourself before the pup passes out as we can’t imagine you’d have an easy time freeing yourself otherwise.
It’s pretty obvious that this adorable baby has no fear of this huge Rottweiler. The large doggo is clearly attempting to convey how gentle and accommodating he is by holding his ears down and using his paw to tenderly secure his little human companion.
This little girl will always feel safe and protected thanks to her giant companion. We love our fuzzy relatives, especially when they’re this sweet and gentle with tiny humans.
Mom Doesn’t Need a Caretaker
Aww, this monstrous bulldog wants to participate in mom’s exercise! You could make him happy and make your workout more challenging at the same time by allowing him to jump on for additional weight. Of course, the equipment isn’t designed for dogs to safely climb aboard.
Getting consolation from your beloved pet is a colossal help when you are feeling down and drained. With unlimited love and backing, they raise our spirits and inspire us to push for one more rep.
No Car Rides, Please
This giant Pit Bull abhors vehicle rides and is telling everybody about it. He could scarcely wait one more moment to be liberated from the truck and get back on solid ground.
Numerous young canines experience the ill effects of travel sickness. Thankfully, most outgrow it over the long run. If yours is still battling, it can help to leave the window open all throughout the journey.
The Best of Friends
Did you see the little kitten sitting on this monster Irish Wolfhound? We nearly missed her! She appears to be fascinated by his long tongue. Regardless of the distinction in size, the two are the best of buddies. Who said felines and canines must be constant enemies?
Cats and dogs don’t generally get along, but if they have quiet attitudes and are brought together up in a calm environment, the two frequently become close companions.
Many people have pointed out that humans end up resembling their pets. If you’re not convinced, here’s a valid example. These two peas in a pod always turn heads when they’re cruising around on a weekend. Where are Shaggy’s shades and backwards cap? That would make the image complete.
Obviously, this isn’t a canine who gets car sickness. Praise to the owner for keeping his goliath pup securely clasped into his seat. However, belting him up in the backseat would be a much more secure option.
A Dream Come True
Pet lovers all know that dogs have their own unique personalities, and this huge, white fluffball typifies the excitable sort. For canines like her, being in a gathering of loving people is a dream come true.
A canine’s disposition decides how well she’ll interact with people, other dogs, and any other pets living in the family. Canines like this one are so friendly that even would-be robbers may get a warm welcome. The next doggo on the list is friendly too!
You’re My Favorite Chair
Is this puppy a colossal, wanna-be lapdog, or has the family simply failed to purchase him his own oversized seat? Though some dogs are happy to simply lie on the floor, this big guy clearly has loftier ideas.
Canines like to sit on people for an assortment of reasons: love, solace, fun, even sovereignty. Whatever you do, if you own a giant dog, make sure it knows who’s the big boss. Otherwise you may end up losing your favorite comfy seat.
Something is telling us that when this man was young, he had a soft toy that looked very much like this Alaskan Malamute. Presently, as a “grown-up,” he likes to haul around this larger-than-life-size adaptation of his childhood toy. Thankfully, it seems the dog is 100% onboard with the hugs.
What an enormous bundle of charm! Clearly, this is a patient puppy as well. His paws and tongue are sticking out in surrender to the hug. There isn’t anything better than the bond between a man and his best companion.
Best Friends in the Forest
It would appear that a stare-off is in progress. This little kid isn’t flinching, but the giant doggo isn’t either. We wonder how long the staring competition lasted. We have a feeling the black dog was the first to get sick of it and demand that his companions stop staring and start playing already!
Young children learn a lot by growing up with canines. They develop an appreciation for the obligations you have to your loved ones and how important it is to nurture familial relationships. Studies have revealed improved social-emotional advancement in kids with pets, particularly canines. Another valid justification for parents to finally buy that cute pup the kids have been begging for!
When your huge “bear” of a dog ambles over to your seat to beg for a walk, a treat, or some affection, it’s impossible to ignore the adorable request. Just look at those big puppy dog eyes and tell us you’d be able to say no. We doubt it!
This dog’s owners decided to give him the affection he craved in a creative way. Those carrots sure do look like walrus tusks! The picture is adorable, but from the look on his face, we’re not so sure the dog is into his crunchy tusks.
A Superhero in the Making
This is one confident and towering Great Dane. He is so robust in his position that he resembles a superhero taking shape. Maybe they are in an instructional course. Look at that laser focus. Such discipline!
Great Danes have grown to be very submissive through the ages, yet they were initially bred to monitor enormous estates and chase wild hogs. This photo illustrates how Danes can still portray a daring guardian’s solidarity and certainty. We guarantee the next dog looks just as powerful!
Is That for Real?
This photo looks like another example of a massive dog until you realize that they used a camera trick and some careful placement of the subjects. How amazing would it be if that kind of fuzzy puppy actually grew to such a monumental size?
Nowadays, plenty of illusions can be made digitally, and this pic is an illustration of how ingenious some people are. Still, we find ourselves wishing poodles really grew to the size of horses!
Unhappy with the Christmas Sweater
This cranky canine is obviously not warming to his Christmas sweater. Try not to feel so sad, big boy. At least your human parents haven’t put a matching Christmas hat on your head. It could be worse – the humans could have dressed you up as a cat!
Canines truly know how to lay on the sad eyes! Who needs words when a withering gaze can say everything? Thankfully, such tragedies of doggy fashion are immediately pardoned when the treats come out. It’s good to know that canines have short memories.
A Big Smooch Welcome
This smoochy pooch is desperate to give the family’s new little bundle of joy a warm, messy welcome. He is so inquisitive about the small human and needs to become better acquainted with her. Be delicate with her, giant doggo!
You can tell from Mom’s guiding hand that she’s carefully monitoring this whole interaction. Canines will generally be protective of infants, and nobody is certain why. Perhaps they sense children are more powerless than grown-ups. Still, it’s important to consistently watch out for your dog when it’s around youngsters.
All Grown Up
A few canines battle with separation anxiety. When we get back after working all day, they regularly act like they haven’t seen us in weeks! If your puppy is a monster St. Bernard, his profuse greeting may very well knock you off your feet.
Canines are social animals, and many don’t care to be left alone. To help your doggo have a sense of safety while you’re away, leave a lot of toys, give them access to a window with an unobstructed view, and keep either the radio or the TV on for company.
The workday is finally over and all you want to do is relax and watch your favorite movie. Try not to be astonished if your goliath buddy has a go at cozying up with you, particularly if you have some scrumptious treats to nibble on while you’re kicking back.
Following a difficult day alone, your four-legged friend needs actual contact and friendship. The dog’s size won’t factor into its desire for closeness with you. Whatever it takes, the pupper will be determined to get a cuddle going.
The holiday season is as stressful as it is magical. Be that as it may, special occasions like Christmas should be a reminder for us to pause and reflect on our blessings. Catching a sweet interaction between two extraordinary companions is a great way to do just that.
The baby may not recall this moment in the future, yet the developing connection between these two beings will endure in their hearts forever. Is that a grin we can see on the pooch? Aww.
One Big, Furry Hug
It seems this giant sheepdog has loads of adoration for his human Mom. After a stroll in the park, it’s an ideal opportunity to show his appreciation. This big guy doesn’t hold back either.
Canines are happiest when they’re outdoors. They love long walks, so make sure to always include some time in nature with your pooch. The two of you get to enjoy some bonding time, and the pup gets to unleash some of its pent-up energy.
Gee. What is so intriguing about that laptop screen? The goliath doggy is truly focusing hard. Or perhaps he’s simply squinting. Whatever the case, time together is what’s important.
Some way or another, everything appears to be simpler and more charming if our fuzzy companions are nearby. Work is less stressful, and everything feels more doable. Studies have shown that canines are useful for people’s emotional well-being.
Patience is a Virtue
Have you seen how tolerant canines can be with irritations? Perhaps a kid likes to pull on its tail or tiny baby chicks mistake its nose for a perch. Whatever the circumstance, gentle giant canines take everything in their stride.
Canines get along very well with many other animals. Other than felines, dogs have been known to live in peace with guinea pigs, ferrets, hares, and one another. This picture proves that they are in harmony with baby chicks too!
Size is relevant. When compared to their own species or their human companions, these two canines are enormous. However, when contrasted with a horse their size seems less impressive. Here, they look somewhat compliant and prepared to take orders from their new boss.
Being goliath Newfoundlands, these two are most likely not used to looking upwards at other creatures. Yet, they give off an impression of being interested in the new life form in front of them. Perhaps a thorough gallop together will strengthen their thriving kinship.
Just Chilling Out
As the vast majority of us know, canines are pack creatures. They like to live communally as it allows them to remain warm, safe, fed, and loved. This “pack” of lovely Malamutes and their adopted human are completely comfortable for the night.
All modern canines descended from wolves and participate in pack conduct. That is why it is so important for owners to make it clear that they are the head of the family “pack.” If not, the canine will assume the part, and behavioral issues will arise.
We’re certain there’s somebody giggling behind the scenes here, but the pooch doesn’t appear to be impressed. When he’s out of that child swing, whoever put him in there had better hide. He has that wild look in his eyes.
A stroll at the park is a doggie dream day. However, the swings never factor into their thinking. They’d much rather play an invigorating game of fetch.
A Loving Guardian
This immense Pit Bull is a caring guardian. He is on his best behavior and is making sure all the kids are having a good time in the bath.
Hostility in Pit Bulls gets exaggerated in the news. While there are reported assaults, most Pit Bulls become gentle family pets when brought up in a caring home. Smart, loyal, and friendly, Pit Bulls are also utilized as service canines.
Looking For Treats
With a goliath canine in the house, you need to be careful where you hide the treats. This enormous Great Dane can get to places that people wouldn’t think possible. He is resolved and relentless when it comes to food.
He is presently rummaging through the high cupboards as he’s seen Dad putting the yummy treats up there. A canine’s resourcefulness may amaze you. When there’s sandwich meat in question, what happens next is anyone’s guess.
It’s crazy, but some people spend a fortune on purebreds. Have they never hear of crossbreeds? Combining the very best of both worlds, these mixes are anything but mutts. Check out the latest and greatest from the world of dogs, and get ready for awws!
Chowba (Chow Chow + Shiba Inu)
With a light-colored, fluffy coat and an unusually black tongue, this dog is hard to miss at the park. A striking mix, the Chowba is actually a combination of the Chow Chow and the Shiba Inu. Some like to say that this breed looks like a wild wolf. Are they so wrong?
Merging two of the oldest breeds in the world with traceable wolf roots, it does look a bit like great-great-great-grandpa. Plus, the Chowba is stubborn and difficult to train! Described as an independent and aloof dog, it’s not usually recommended for first-time owners!
Next, see the newest, fluffiest crossbreeds stealing hearts and bones!
Goberian (Golden Retriever + Siberian Husky)
The Goberian is a majestic name for a dog that deserves just that. This gorgeous pooch is a mix of the Golden Retriever and the Siberian Husky. Families with children say they love this breed, choosing it over many other options. What’s attracting them to the Goberian?
Known to be especially sociable and bright, this doggy is also extremely loyal. They seem to genuinely love runs, jogs, and hikes. Combined, these qualities certainly make it a good choice for suburbia. some say the Goberian is the definition of man’s best friend!
Golden Dox (Golden Retriever + Dachshund)
Why, who’s this right here? Is it a weiner dog, or not? As it turns out, sort of. The Golden Dox is the result of crossbreeding a Dachshund with a Golden Retriever. All in all, it’s a combination of two of the most faithful breeds!
Golden Doxes are friendly and well-equipped to spend time with children. Even better, they are easy to train, and form strong bonds with their families. But they can be a bit stubborn, in the spirit of full disclosure: The weiner genes show through at times, and not just in their stumpy feet!
Shiranian (Pomeranian + Shih Tzu)
This sweet, tiny guy is the Shiranian, a cross between the Pomeranian and the Shih Tzu. Considered by small dog fans to be one of the best in that category, they are loving and affectionate as a breed. And it’s hard not to be affectionate right back!
A double “teddy bear dog” mix, it should surprise no one to find out that the Shiranian loves to snuggle. A sweet companion for children and a great dog to have around strangers, they seem to trust every human they meet. Perhaps not the best guard dog, but that’s forgivable!
Golden Shepherd (Golden Retriever + German Shepherd)
Golden Retrievers and German Shepherds are both in the top popular breeds in America. Why not mix them, and be twice as nice? This irresistibly people-loving dog is athletic and loyal, just like mom and dad! What traits stand out the most, besides the obvious?
Golden Shepherds are actually pretty quiet. And with proper exercise outside of the house once a day, they can actually be content living in a small city apartment. That’s not true, for all big breeds. But for urban dwellers looking for a friend to the end, this one might be a good choice at the pound!
Frenchton (French Bulldog + Boston Terrier)
It is a sad fact that the process of breeding can sometimes create problems for the breed. When humans try to make a dog too big or too small, it can mean health problems! The French Bulldog and the Boston Terrier both had a few issues, so a solution was proposed. Why not combine the best of both worlds, and make a stronger mix?
Indeed, the Frenchton was the perfect solution. This little cutie is a great option for anyone in the market for a small pooch: They love to be around their owners, love a moderate amount of cuddle and play, and don’t mind small apartments. Plus, they’re a bit mischievous! A well-rounded choice, without a doubt.
Sprollie (Border Collie + Springer Spaniel)
Sprollies are a mix between the Border Collie and the Springer Spaniel. Most people can see the resemblance, and getting to know them reveals further connections to their proud lineage. Energetic and smart, they have a strong desire to work and earn their keep. Sounds like a spaniel and collie mix, doesn’t it?
The physical inventory is no surprise, either. Logically, Sprollies are medium size. They have some of the markings and ears from their respective families — but they’ve made them all their own. Innovation in breeding worth barking about, here!
Yorkie Pom (Yorkshire Terrier + Pomeranian)
Mixing the Yorkshire Terrier with a Pomeranian was no mistake. It led to the Yorkie Pom, a new fuzzy favorite! Tiny yet feisty, they have a few names in the market out there. Sometimes listed as a “Porkie” or “Yoranian,” they are guaranteed to be cute in little boots and sweaters. Exhibit A, below!
Yorkie Poms are energetic, intelligent, loving, and alert. What’s missing, in that mix? Perhaps size, but not everyone wants a huge animal. This ultimate tiny teacup pet is always ready for playtime and fits right into a handbag. For some, that’s a doggy dream come true!
Sprocker Spaniel (Springer Spaniel + Cocker Spaniel)
Sprocker Spaniel is a name few can say five times fast. But the mix of a Springer Spaniel and Cocker Spaniel is worth a wordy try! Some think this is a new dog type, but the combination of these two Spaniels has a pretty established history. Why did folks start to breed them?
Both varieties were chosen from litters based on their size to continue the special look. But sometimes, they were just too cute to keep apart! Sprockers have a high work drive and boundless energy. And best of all, they are notoriously loyal to their human families. The feeling is mutual, always!
Beabull (Beagle + English Bulldog)
It seems like a deepfake, but it’s totally real: This dog looks familiar, at first glance. But something is off! The Beabull might make some squint to figure out exactly what they are looking at. Is it a Beagle? Is it an English Bulldog? The answer, of course, is both!
Known to have a generally even temperament, breeders say that this pet is great for homes with children. Beabulls don’t seem to mind being poked and grabbed by curious kiddos, which is a great feature. The only catch? Perhaps their coat, which sheds like crazy! But with a face like that, who can stay mad at them for long?
Hug (Siberian Husky + Pug)
The Hug is totally huggable, as one would expect. A combo of the Siberian Husky and a Pug is one that should have happened sooner! Playful and affectionate, it has clearly inherited some of the best qualities from both breeds. But is that the whole story?
While Hugs are known to be smart dogs who can be trained quickly and easily, there’s another side of that coin. The Husky is stubborn,. and this relative is similar. Pugs needs tons of attention, and Hugs do, too! But with that toothy grin, who wouldn’t want to give it try?
Chug (Chihuahua + Pug)
With the signature bulging eyes and a sandy tan coat, this doggo can be none other than The Chug. A mixed breed of a Chihuahua and a Pug creates a totally crazy-looking creature. It’s a Franken-dog, of sorts. But no one is complaining, really!
Their temperaments a winning combo, too: These canines love to hang out with big breeds and small children alike. And despite their tiny bodies, they have big personalities. As loyal pups, they can get a bit possessive without training!
Springador (Springer Spaniel + Labrador Retriever)
Springadors are a mix between a small doggy and a larger one. When the popular Springer Spaniel and Labrador Retriever get together, the results are absolutely loveable! Sometimes, they are marketed as Spanadors or Labradingers, but the core story is the same. These dogs get distinct behaviors from their parents, and their owners love the mix.
First, they are playful and smart. This makes them predisposed to be great working dogs. What’s more, they have inherited a special ability to retrieve, from their genes. All in all, Springadors are useful and loving additions to human families!
Aussiepom (Australian Shepherd + Pomeranian)
Undeniably delightful, with a face that could melt the coldest of hearts, the Aussiepom really stands out at the park. A cross between a big Australian Shepherd and a small Pomeranian created this supermix with a beautiful coat. What kind of behavior did they inherit?
Just like both sides of their family, Aussiepoms love to have fun. That doesn’t mean lounging around, all day, either. They love tons of attention and need endless exercise. They don’t want to do it alone, of course: Owners should be prepared to be involved, all the time!
Chusky (Chow Chow + Siberian Husky)
For dog lovers into thick, luxurious coats, there are a lot of choices these days. But why not try the Chusky? Mixing the Chow Chow and the Siberian Husky created a giant fluffball and a good watchdog. They love to be cuddled, which is convenient since everyone wants to cuddle them!
Chow Chows and Siberian Huskies are loyal, and their kids are the same way. Cuter than any home alarm system, this breed is also very alert and protective. It’s a good deal with a guard dog: Unwavering commitment to safety for unlimited hugs!
A wrinkly face for the record book, the Bull-Pei certainly stands out on a walk. Most people have probably never seen anything like it, it’s safe to say. The mix between an English Bulldog and a Chinese Shar-Pei is only becoming more popular!
Bull-Pei (English Bulldog + Shar-Pei)
Some might say this combo is the ultimate dog. It doesn’t mind small apartments, doesn’t make a lot of noise, and won’t run around driving everyone crazy indoors. They don’t shed a lot either, but owners need to look out for one thing: They might need help cleaning their special rolls!
Bullhuahua (French Bulldog + Chihuahua)
Small dog lovers will be excited to hear that breeders have combined two of the very best: A French Bulldog and Chihuahua fell in love, and created the Bullhuahua! With a tiny body and gigantic ears, it’s a funny-looking dog. And that’s just how fans like it!
Bullhuahuas even have a bit of a sassy attitude. But they are playful and loving most of the time, and love to spend quality time with their families. They don’t mind being lap dogs, for those who like a TV buddy. But owners should know they have a tendency to be territorial. Watch out for this little guy when he gets going!
Aussiedoodle (Australian Shepherd + Poodle)
There are oodles of poodles already, but what about Aussiedoodles? Adding an Australian Shepherd to the gene pool creates an interesting mix, with a silly name to match! Mama and papa are known as two of the smartest dogs in the world, and their pup doesn’t disappoint.
Mixing two “canine Einsteins” meant a good chance for a service breed that can take direction. Though they do have a ton of energy and need a lot of playtime and exercise, they are often recruited for real duties that require emotional support and smarts. Loving and loyal, Aussiedoodles form strong bonds along the way!
Corgitian (Corgi + Dalmatian)
Cruella Deville, stay away! This new Dalmatian mix involves a Corgi, and is known by a few different names. Listed either as Dalcorgis, or Corgitians, the crossbreed takes on the short, stumpy body and the spotted coat of its parents. The results are undeniably appealing!
Anyone who wants the energy of a lanky dalmatian in a manageable package might enjoy this option. Intelligent and people-loving, owners rave about the mix. But even though it may not look like it, this breed does demand plenty of exercise: Be prepared for daily workouts, Corgitian lovers!
Cheagle (Chihuahua + Beagle)
Putting the floppy ears of a Beagle on the body of a Chihuahua may have been a dream for a long time. But now, it’s a reality with the Cheagle! Its personality is said to be gentle and docile, with a taste for fun — and that sounds about right, for those familiar with both breeds.
While a Cheagle is small enough for apartment life, owners should know they do not like to be left alone for too long. First-time dog owners may be surprised to see they can get fussy when locked away all day. Good to know, right?
Bernedoodle (Bernese Mountain Dog + Poodle)
Mixing a poodle with a Bernese Mountain Dog actually has unpredictable results. The Bernedoodles of this union varies a lot in appearance. But they’re all cute, without a doubt! Canine genetics can be funny like that, on occasion. What do they all have in common, though?
It seems they all like to snuggle! A perfect addition to the living room furniture, they are happy to stay for an evening of TV next to the couch. Not bred to be a show dog, these animals really just want to be cuddly companions!
German Sherpei (German Shepherd + Shar-Pei)
A German Shepherd twist, coming right up! The German Sherpei might cause a double-take or two because it does resemble the main breed. The addition of Shar-Pei genes makes it a canine with a unique personality and features. It’s time to learn more!
Loyal watchdogs and true companions, the German Shar-Pei is often called hard-working. Intelligent and independent, it is suspicious of strangers and loving to family. Perfect, perhaps — but for first-time adopters, this one is said to be a hard pet to manage. Experienced owners, this might be the right fit!
Beaglier (Beagle + Cavalier King Charles Spaniel)
Hello, little Beaglier! This crossbreed between the Beagle and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel hails from Australia, where it first became popular during the 1990s. Increasingly, they have become trendy outside of the Outback. And it’s not hard to see why, upon only first glance!
Gentle and playful, this is one great family dog. Not known for being loud or especially yappy, they may bark on the occasion that someone new enters the home. Not a bad trait, really! They love belly rubs, along the way. Traditional Beagles certainly have competition, now!
Chiweenie (Dachshund + Chihuahua)
Usually known as the Chiweenie, this sweet mutt is also known as a Choxie, a German Taco, a Weeniehuahua, or a Mexican Hot Dog. Which name is the most accurate? It’s hard to say, but this perfect purse puppy is half Dachshund and half Chihuahua. It’s also 100% precious!
Chiweenies are energetic and compact little dogs. They really don’t judge owners with small apartments, happy to live in the space with walks outside for a break. FYI: They can get a bit yappy at neighbors knocking on the door. But who doesn’t sometimes?
Dorgi (Dachshund + Pembroke Welsh Corgi)
Many may not now the Dorgi is actually a favorite of Queen Elizabeth II. She couldn’t get enough of this mix between a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and a Dachshund, otherwise called a Dorgi. She loves Corgis, of course. But why not mix it up sometimes, with a cute cousin?
The Queen knows what she’s doing when it comes to tiny pets. Social, loyal, and friendly is just what a royal needs, and the Dorgi delivers. They already have real guards at the balance. Dogs there can take a break, and just be as sweet as nature intended!
Aus-Tzu (Australian Shepherd + Shih Tzu)
An Australian Shepherd and a Shih Tzu got together, and the world has never been the same! Mixing these two dogs was a great idea, everyone agrees. With soft, silky fur and a silly face everyone’s mother could love, the Aus-Tzu is a big, big win.
Mainly a companion, the Aus-Tzu loves to play fetch. Classic dog! But back at home, there is some necessary maintenance: For some owners, all that hair can be a bit much. For those who enjoy using a brush, this breed could be just what the dog-tor ordered!
Frug (French Bulldog + Pug)
Every dog has a unique profile, in the canine family. But there’s a special look, to this one! For anyone into wrinkles, the Frug is worth a try. A crossbreed between a Pug and a French Bulldog might be the way to go, breeders schemed. They were probably right!
The Frug is often found with tail wagging and tongue out, ready to greet anyone approaching the house. It’s a happy meeting, without growls. Not a guard dog, at all! Full of happiness and energy, they just want t play outside and share love. And who doesn’t want to love this little Frug right back?
Jack A Poo (Jack Russell Terrier + Poodle)
What happens when a Jack Russell Terrier and a Poodle get busy with babies? Why, the Jack A Poo of course! A playful mixed breed, experts say this one is best suited for families with kids. Looking at this friendly face, the recommendation is not hard to believe!
According to experts, this mix includes intelligence from its Poodle side. It also has the determination and work ethic of a Jack Russell Terrier. Combined, it has one more big trait: Stubbornness, without proper exercise and love! Daily doses are required, without exception.
Shorkie (Shih Tzu + Yorkshire Terrier)
Itty bitty Shorkies are a merger of two very lovable small dog breeds: The Shih Tzu and the Yorkshire Terrier. Combining Yorkies with anything is a cute project, but this one hit it out of the park! An added bonus: They’re super doting and affectionate!
The breed has two major modes, and its energy can go from playful to chill very quickly. But owners should know that leaving for the day can be a hard experience for the SHorkie. They have a lot of separation anxiety, and miss their family truly, madly, deeply!
Husgi (Siberian Husky + Pembroke Welsh Corgi)
Known alternatively as the Husgi, the Corgsky, and the Siborgi, one thing is always constant: This pint-sized pooch looks a lot like dad! Mixing the Siberian Husky with the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, it seems that this mix ended up with sled dog features — just mini size!
Few can resist those pointy ears and foxy head, at the pound. In terms of personality, they are friendly. But the truth is, they are not as universally friendly as some breeds. They enjoy being watchdogs — especially for the humans they love deeply. Always a good boy!
Beagi (Beagle + Pembroke Welsh Corgi)
Short, sweet, and always at people’s feet, the Beagi has a lot to offer in dog world. A mix of Beagle and Corgi, they are equally great companions. And not just with people either — Beagis love to play with other animals! For anyone looking to expand their pet family, that’s great news.
Truthfully, they are a tad territorial and get restless indoors for too long. They require training but are actually a bit easier to work with compared to Beagles. For anyone willing to put in the daily exercise with the Beagi, it’s well worth the trouble! Who doesn’t want a cheerful and devoted pup?
Basshuahua (Basset Hound + Chihuahua)
Some of the most famous breeds have famously short lifespans. The Great Dane, for example, only lives for seven years! This mix does not have that problem, though. The Basshuahua is half Basset Hound and half Chihuahua. And it can live for more than 15 years, which is more than double other popular breeds!
The Basshuahua is always strongly committed to one to 2 people in its life. It’s one of the most loving combos on the list, and love to be a lookout at home. They reserve their love for their family, and make great guards!
Jackador (Jack Russell Terrier + Labrador Retriever)
The Jackador is a catchy name, no doubt. But what is the source of its moniker? Meshing Jack Russell Terrier plus Labrador Retriever, the fusion makes sense. This mutt is great with kids and families, always cute and playful. Oddly enough, it’s not very well known!
Because they have not been adopted as widely as other mixes, less is established about their universal quirks. Current owners say they are great with families, temperamentally. But there’s one catch so far, and proactive training is a good idea: Watch out for chewing on anything and everything!
Maltipoo (Maltese + Toy or Miniature Poodle)
Maltipoos have a funny name, but the verbal combo is a logical one. A crossbreed of the Maltese and Miniature Poodle, they have become quite popular in recent years. Curly and cute, it’s no surprise people are drawn to their style. Affectionate and gentle, they also make superb therapy dogs!
The other benefit of this designer dog is a hypoallergenic creation. While all dogs produce saliva and dander, Maltipoos often irritate allergies less. Only an in-person test will determine if the match is right, of course. But for some dog lovers, this crossbreed is a dream!
Cavachon (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel + Bichon Frise)
It’s time to examine the Cavachon, a crossbreed between the Bichon Frise and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Many have observed that these soft, small dogs always look a bit like puppies. No matter how they age, they just have that fountain of youth going on. Cavachons love to spend time with owners, snuggling on the sofa or romping in the garden. Sounds promising, so far!
Even better, their coats are hypoallergenic. This useful trait was inherited from their Bichon Frise side, of course. For anyone living in small spaces with big allergies, the Cavachon might be a dogsend!
