So, you think you’ve found the perfect pup, do you? Well, there may be some new contenders to add to your list. Thanks to our undying devotion to all things dog-related, we have some seriously adorable photos of hybrid dog breeds, breed you may have never known existed — until now.
So, sit back, relax, and get ready to “ooh” and “aw” your heart out, because these ridiculously cute canines are exactly what you need in your life right now.
- Golden retriever and Siberian husky
Clearly, this little guy got all the markings of a Siberian husky and the body of a perfect golden retriever. Husky eyes, retriever ears, and big paws, to boot. Oh, and that belly. Are you searching for one of your own yet? Because we are.
- Cocker spaniel and poodle
When these two get together, the result is furry curls too soft not to snuggle. And if that’s not enough, there’s this: an Instagram account called @dogswithstuffedanimals exists. So, you can now stop everything you’re doing and devote the rest of your work day to looking through that. You’re welcome.
Next: It’s time to prepare yourself.
Is this even real life? We’d say no, had it not been for an embarrassing amount of time spent scrolling through this Instagram account. Without a doubt, @poochofnyc proves there is still plenty of good in the world.
Next: These two were meant to be(agle.).
Those floppy ears. That smushed nose. Those forehead crinkles. That’s what you get when a pug and a beagle come together. And it’s a beautiful thing.
- Alaskan malamute and Siberian husky
If you’re a fan of big and burly pups, then this hybrid is definitely for you. Better yet, the alusky was tailor made for life in the mountains. And clearly, he deserves to be living his very best life. Just look at that face!
Next: This is just too much.
OK, now it’s official: We’ve found what is, quite possibly, the most irresistible mix around. And it’s a horgi — a husky and a corgi. On their own, these breeds could not be more different. But together? Well, together, they deliver a hybrid that’s too cute to understand, which is why we’re not asking any questions.
Next: A sturdy breed, indeed.
Yes. Just, yes. We are all about this hybrid breed because, well, how could you not be? The bulldog is short and stout, while the mastiff is strong and sturdy. Combined, they make for a mix that’s impossibly cute. That is all.
Next: This colorful mashup is too good.
- Australian shepherd and poodle
So, this exists. And we can’t even stand it. When the Australian shepherd teams up with a poodle, it’s a win-win in terms of both personality and good looks. And bonus: Each of these breeds is ridiculously smart, and being obedient is a top trait. That said, this mix would be any dog owner’s dream.
Next: The perfect cold-weather hybrid.
- Australian shepherd and American Eskimo
Without a doubt, this guy was made for cold weather (the American Eskimo) and hard work (the Australian shepherd). And because the American Eskimo breed comes in three different sizes — standard, miniature, and toy — the size of an Aussiemo can vary, too. Either way, any Aussiemo is going to be cute.
Next: These wrinkles are everything.
- Beagle and English bulldog
Both the beagle and English bulldog are playful and lovable. So, it’s no surprise this hybrid breed is oozing with personality. Not to mention, the beabull is absolutely adorable. With each breed bringing his expressive face to the mix, this pup is the perfect balance of droopy ears and a furrowed brow.
Next: You may not understand it, but you will like it.
When the classic fur of a husky is packed into the pint-sized body of a Pomeranian, it can only result in one thing: total cuteness overload. Enter the pomsky — the Pomeranian-husky hybrid that you definitely need in your life. Like, right now.
Next: If this large breed got together with a poodle, here’s what it would look like.
- Bernese mountain dog and poodle
Bernese mountain dogs are undeniably wonderful. But the thing is, they shed — a lot. The poodle, however, only sheds minimally, which is probably why it’s cross-bred so much in the first place. That said, the bernedoodle is the ideal compromise between the lovable Bernese and the intelligent poodle.
Next: The queen would approve.
Turns out, there are some breed-lovers who are forever faithful to a certain type of breed. And generally speaking, dachshunds and corgis are two of those breeds. So, when their cuteness combines, the result is a hybrid both breed enthusiasts can love.
Next: These fluffy ears though …
When a chow chow and a husky come together, it’s a cuteness overload explosion. Seriously. One look at all the fluffiness of the chow chow mixed with the ears and face of a husky, and it’s nothing short of a match made in heaven.
Next: Ears plus wrinkles results in this adorable hybrid.
Sharp asset (or ba-shar)
- Basset hound and Shar-Pei
Basset hounds are all about the ears. And Shar-Peis? Well, they’re known for having loads of wrinkles. Needless to say, when the two breeds get together, it’s nothing short of squeezable goodness.
So, now do you understand why these mixes are pure magic? Now, if only we had a sprawling farm to house each one we want, then that would truly be magical.
