This is a list of hybrid dogs. A dog hybrid is not actually a breed, nor is it actually a hybrid, usually taken to mean a cross between two different species (i.e. a canid hybrid). What is being fashionably now called a hybrid is what has been traditionally called a crossbred dog, one with two purebred parents of different breeds, both of which are of the same species, Canis lupus familiaris.

As many hybrids include poodles (see poodle hybrid for details), they are listed separately below.


Hybrid or Designer dogs cannot be registered as such with any of the major purebred kennel clubs, even if both parents are registered purebreds.

Cacki, Corki Jack Russell Terrier Welsh Corgi Corki was the traditional name for this cross before Yorkie crosses became popular.

These dogs are the ideal cross for equestrians who love both Jack/Parson Russell Terriers and Corgis (the two more popular dog breeds at horse shows across the United States). They have a natural herding and hunting ability yet remain as one of the larger small breeds weighing on average 20 to 25 pounds. Tails are typically docked to a length that depends on the body style of the dog (whether it looks more like the terrier or Corgi).

This designer breed is still in a state of heavy flux, with debate between those who prefer to restrict breeding to early generation dogs (i.e., bred from a Dachshund and Chihuahua rather than from two Chihuachshunds) to maximize genetic diversity, and those who are breeding Chihuachshund to Chihuachshund over successive generations, trying to establish a new dog breed.[citation needed] Similar to its Chihuahua ancestry, the Chiweenie remains small in size. This new designer breed combines brains and playfulness in an optimal "pocket size."
