Dogs are perhaps one of the most distinctive-looking species on the planet. Hundreds of years of breeding have led to a broad range of diverse breeds with extremely different shapes, sizes, coats and colors. But what will happen if you take some of these diverse-looking breeds to mix their notable properties? You get really adorable mixed-breed dogs like the ones shown below that combine the best of both worlds.
There is an interesting debate going on over whether purebreds or mixed-breed dogs are better. The characteristics of purebreds (like temperament, color and size) are predictable so that you will always have a rough idea what your puppy will grow up to be. However, purebreds tend to be more vulnerable to genetic diseases. Mutts, on the other hand, are usually healthier but they may have some behavioral problems. Also, it is a little difficult to know how big your mutt puppy will grow up to be.
