Dogs are wonderful. They come in all shapes and sizes. Every dog is different, which is great because it means that there is one out there for you.

Whether you are an elderly person, who is not as active as they used to be, or a family with energetic kids that are into everything there is a dog that will fit in with your lifestyle. Each breed has its own traits and personality, which makes it relatively easy to identify which type of dog, is right for you.

Today, we are going to take a quick look at crossbred dogs. This type of pet is becoming increasingly popular as people look for something a bit different.

The choice is growing all the time, but here is a roundup of three of the crossbred puppies that are the most popular now.

The puggle

For a couple of decades now pugs have been growing in popularity. They are easygoing dogs that are small enough for everyone to keep.

Whoever came up with the idea of crossbreeding a pug with a beagle, to produce a puggle, was inspired. Both of these breeds are highly intelligent and inquisitive, which makes puggles doubly so. You need to be on high alert with these puppies, because they have boundless energy and get bored easily. Fortunately, they quickly settle down and grow into well-grounded companion dogs that are very loyal as well as great fun.

The cockapoo

The cockapoo is a cross between a cocker spaniel and a poodle, usually the miniature version. This sounds an odd mix, but they actually make great looking dogs. I especially like the golden cockapoo, they are relatively rare, but have glorious look fur that literally glows in the sunlight.

This type of dog is quite energetic, but less so than a standard cocker spaniel. If you are going to opt for this crossbreed, it is best to have a garden because essentially they are a working breed style of dog.

They are easy to keep because they barely shed and only require brushing once a week. However, they are active dogs, so it is best to walk them twice a day, to stop them from getting bored.

Shorkies

This crossbreed is a mix between a purebred Yorkie and a Shih Tzu. Again, they are a little dog, which is perfect for those who live in small houses. They are a very cheeky and mischievous pet, which makes them entertaining. However, you have to keep a close eye on them, especially when they are puppies, because they get into everything.

Whether you are looking for crossbred puppies for sale in Glasgow or New York the advice is the same. The only way to make sure that the dog you buy is healthy and has not been treated cruelly is to buy from a registered, and properly regulated, breeder.
