Dog hybrids and crossbreeds

A dog hybrid is a cross between two different breeds (selectively bred varieties).

Hybrids are also known as crossbreeds or crossbreds, although the term crossbreed is also used to refer to a mixed-breed dog where the breed of only one parent or grandparent is known.

Among the better known dog hybrids are Labradoodles and Australian Bulldogs, which each have their own breed fancy associations.

Poodle crosses are popular.

A dog of unknown parentage is called a mongrel.
