Test Your Dog Knowledge With The Crossbreed Generator

Do you know your Gollie from your Wollie or your Muggin from your Puggle? If not, the Crossbreed Generator created by the Co-operative insurance could be a fun way to test your knowledge of crossbreed dogs and discover some new breeds in the process.

According to Crufts, a crossbreed “is a dog of mixed blood, whose parents are of two different breeds, or a mixture of several breeds”. You’ve probably heard of the popular crossbreeds such as the Labradoodle and of course the ‘Dorgi’ who rose to fame after one of the Queen’s corgis got together with Princess Margaret’s dachshund.  But do you know some of the more unusual ones? I certainly didn’t.

Here’s where the Crossbreed Generator comes in, all you need to do is select your first dog breed from the column on the left e.g. the pug and then you pick a breed from the second column on the right e.g. the beagle and wait to see what the result is…

It may be just me but I found it strangely addictive to go through the many permutations and combinations and see the crossbreed and guess the ‘portmanteau’ name (yes, that is what it’s called).  One thing is for sure, there were some very funny names and some very cute dogs. Here’s our pick of the pack…

Finally, on a more serious note if you are thinking about getting a crossbreed (or any dog), make sure you do so responsibly  – if possible adopt one of the many dogs needing a home from a rescue such as All Dogs Matter, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home or Dogs Trust. If buying a puppy make sure you ask the right questions to ensure you are not supporting the cruel puppy farming trade. For more guidance on this, have a look at this advice from Pupaid.
