What Are Hybrid Dogs

June 25, 2018

A hybrid dog is also known as a mixed breed dog.

Hybrid puppies are available in all shapes, sizes, and colors. They may have short curly hair or long and silky locs. Maybe they will have long and pointy noses or short and stubby snouts. As we mentioned, there are so many options when it comes to hybrid puppies. What makes them so attractive is that they are designed to meet various pet owners’ needs! At Petland, we have many designer or hybrid puppies for sale!

History

There actually used to be a time when most “mutt” dogs that roamed pretty much looked the same. More often than not, the only things separating them was their age and their names! Other than that, they were brown, short coated, medium sized dogs.

Today

Even today in some countries where humans haven’t imprinted the canine population with breeding hybrid puppies, many of the dogs still bear the aforementioned physical characteristics. Say for instance hybrid puppies in countries located in Australia and South America, have longer coats than others, but they generally have their historical traits.

Why Are Hybrid Puppies Popular Choices?

One of the main reasons that people choose to purchase hybrid puppies is because they are generally considered to be healthier than purebred dogs. They draw from broader gene pools, thus producing hybrid puppies and reducing inbreeding, which causes genetic health issues.

Of course, we know that you can’t assume that because you’ve purchased hybrid puppies that they won’t have any health problems. As with any breed, there are issues that are commonly associated with them. Having a fresh bloodline makes very little difference if the parents aren’t healthy and this is important for you to know.
