10 Rare Mix-Breed Dogs That Are Absolutely Adorable (and Have Very Fun Names to Say)

There are so many adorable dogs out there, but sometimes you want to branch out from the breeds you see over and over again. (Though, yes, a Golden Retriever's cuteness is undeniable.) If you are searching for a unique furry BFF, then you've come to the right place. There is nothing more special than a rare pooch that is not just one breed, but a combo of two!

Getting a mixed-breed dog is like getting the best of both worlds (or breeds). According to PetMD, there are many advantages to buying or rescuing a mixed-breed pup. These furry friends are flexible, and can more easily adapt to a variety of households and living conditions. They have fewer health issues, can be a lot more affordable, and if you are adopting, they might even be potty-trained (a definite plus). And can we talk about how cute their names are? Did you know that if you combine a Pug and a Beagle you've got a Puggle? And a Schnauzer mixed with a Poodle is a Schnoodle? Start brainstorming dog names, because after you see pictures of these special pups, you'll want to head over to your local shelter ASAP.



The Labmaraner is a mix between two athletic and lively parents, a Labrador and a Weimaraner. Weimaraners have signature silvery-grey coats, but bred with a Labrador, this breed will come in a variety of different colors. These active pets make the best exercise buds, they enjoy jogs, swims, and romantic walks on the beach.



If you combine two of the most popular family dog breeds, a Golden Retriever and Siberian Husky, you get the Goberian. These highly intelligent and friendly pups are the perfect pets for a big family and a big house. They are high energy and will thrive best in cool climates.



The Yorkipoo is a cross between the two most precious toy dog breeds, a Yorkshire Terrier and a Toy Poodle. Don't let their daintiness fool you, what these dogs lack in size, they make up for in attitude (and a distinctive yap). They are very flexible in terms of their environment, whether it's a small apartment in the city or a big house in the country, your pup will be a happy camper.



A hybrid between a Pug and a Chihuahua is the quirky, lovable Chug. These dogs make fantastic companions if you're looking for a traveling buddy or just someone to cuddle with on the couch. They do not require as much physical activity as other breeds, but they do enjoy receiving plenty of attention from their owners.


Golden Dox

The Golden Dox is an interesting mix between a small dog and big dog breed: the Golden Retriever and the Dachshund. This dog has the famously long and low silhouette of the Dachshund and the lustrous coat of the Golden Retriever. What could be better than that? If you are looking for an adorable BFF, with an even sweeter personality, this is the right breed for you.



The Beagador takes the best qualities from its two parents in both personality and appearance. This loyal dog has the tracking nose of a Beagle, and the friendliness and charm of a Lab. This mix breed looks similar to a normal lab, but its Beagle heritage gives the canine cute, floppy ears, and a slighter smaller figure.



The only thing cuter than this dog breed name is the pup itself. This pooch has the intelligence of a Chihuahua and the lively nature of a Dachshund. The Chiweenie is an ideal apartment dog for city dwellers and is best suited for small or single-person households. If you are looking for a new roomie, this pint-sized pup is available!



This giant furball is a unique mix between the dignified Chow Chow and the mischievous Siberian Husky. Chuskys bond very closely with their owners and make excellent watchdogs. You might think that the Chusky's tremendous amount of fur would weigh it down, but no, this dog is no couch potato. Chuskys need plenty of exercise (and lots of cuddles).



The Corgimatian is one of the rarest mix-breeds on this list. This special breed is the size of a Corgi and has the distinctive spotty coat of a Dalmatian. If you are a 101 Dalmatians fan and dream of having a puppy-sized Dalmatian forever, this pooch is perfect for you!



The Pitsky is a handsome, muscular cross between the American Pit Bull Terrier and Siberian Husky. These dogs, which range from medium to large in size, are social butterflies and love to be surrounded by as many people as possible. This energetic doggy is bound to be the most popular kid on your block.
