Mixed dog breeds
Mixed dogs have been around for centuries. In fact, just about all of today’s pure breeds were originally mixes of other breeds, some being deliberately cross bred by humans and others evolving organically.
Today, the popularity of hybrid breeds like the Poodle crosses are well on the rise, with the Oodles having overtaken many more established breeds to become some of the most popular dogs in Australia. These ‘designer’ mixes are specifically selected for the highly desirable characteristics of their parent breeds.
To make it easy for you, we have put together a list of some of the most popular (deliberately) mixed dog breeds in Australia. Learn more about their history, temperament, common breed diseases and conditions and lots of other interesting facts to guide you to choose the right mixed dog breed for you and your family!
