Designer Dog Breeds

A "designer" dog (as the media has labeled them) is a cross between two purebred dogs. A purebred dog is one that has been bred over many generations to breed true: every puppy looks and has the same temperament and characteristics as another.

Yorkipoo Dog Breed Information, Photos, Traits and Facts

A fun-loving “designer dog” — and therefore a mixed dog breed — a Yorkipoo is a cross between the Yorkshire Terrier and a Toy or Miniature Poodle. Intelligent, affectionate, and gentle, he makes a delightful companion and is perfectly suited to apartment life, especially if you don’t mind the barking. He has plenty of energy to be burned off and he loves to play when he’s not parked on your lap watching the world go by. His ability to run fast and jump high can be surprising to those who aren’t expecting a canine Superman in miniature. See below for complete Yorkipoo characteristics!

Samoyed Dog Breed Information, Photos, Traits and Facts

Originally bred to hunt, haul sledges, and herd reindeer, the Samoyed dog breed proved a valuable companion for northwestern Siberia’s Samoyede people. Among the breed’s duties: pack hiking, tracking, and warming their owners by sleeping on top of them at night. A working breed, the Samoyed can be strong-willed at times, but above all they remain friendly, gentle, and devoted family dogs. DogDelite recommends this dog bed to give a good night’s sleep to your medium-sized Samoyed. You should also pick up this dog de-shedder for your high shedding pup! See all Samoyed characteristics below!

Scottish Terrier Dog Breed Information, Photos, Traits and Facts

An independent and stubborn character, the Scottish Terrier dog breed is also quite sensitive to praise and blame. Independent, intelligent, and hilarious in his dignified seriousness, he’s a true terrier, which makes him an excellent watchdog. Thanks to those incredibly short legs, he’s not going to train for a marathon with you — heck, he won’t even go jogging with you — but he is a perfect walking companion, especially if you appreciate his vocal approach to bicycles and squirrels. Despite his size, he doesn’t yap: he has a powerful bark that can scare the wits out of the unsuspecting burglar or delivery person. He totally rocks at agility and earthdog trials (those vermin have got to go). You’ll enjoy a rodent-free yard with him around, but watch out for the holes he’s dug.
