More Mongrels!!!

I have discovered more 'new breeds', previously known as mongrels.

COCKER POO (Cocker Spaniel cross Poodle)


Cocker Spaniel - gun dog, bred to flush woodcock, based on some cocker spaniels I have know - neurotic at a Freudian level.
Poodle - I am assuming the crosses are with Miniature Poodles, as those most closely match the size of the Cocker Spaniel. Bred from Standard Poodles, which are water dogs. Miniature Poodles are lap dogs, and again based on personal experience, can tend to the neurotic.
So what you get is a cute, small dog in a permanent state of nervous breakdown.

SCHNOODLE (Schnautzer cross Poodle)


Schnautzer - bred from herding, guarding and ratting breeds. Very terrier like, lively and intelligent. Territorial.
Poodle - assuming the crosses are with Miniature Poodles, as those most closely match the size of the Schnauzer (middle and miniature). Bred from Standard Poodles, which are water dogs. Miniature Poodles are lap dogs, and again based on personal experience, can tend to the neurotic.
Result - neurotic, intelligent, territorial, likes chasing things. All I can think is that it would drive you insane.

GOLDENOODLE (Golden Retriever cross Standard Poodle)


Golden Retriever - waterdog, retrieving dog, love swimming, shed lots, gentle, used as guide dogs.
Standard Poodle - water dogs, gun dogs, retrievers, good watchdogs, intelligent.
This one may actually work. Looks like you would get a sensible dog out of this.

PUGGLE (Pug cross Beagle)


Pug - toy dog, sciable, playful, clever,stubborn
Beagle - hunting dog - hares, rabbits, single minded, friendly. I have personal experience of a beagle. He was a lovely dog, but I have memories of my mother spending hours out calling for him after he had run off chasing something and got so focussed that he forgot to come back. A breed that Barbara Woodhouse described as untrainable.
Result - dog that likes exercise, singe minded, stubborn, playful. Lovely dog, but YOU will do what the PUGGLE wants, not what you want.

As before, when I stumble across them.

A Puggle is a relatively new hybrid dog breed produced by mating a small female Beagle with a select male Pug. Puggle are the most popular designer dog breed. Puggle are for cuddles. The hot designer dog of the decade.
