An experienced dog owner is recommended in order to socialize them appropriately. All their energy needs to be channeled in a positive way to prevent them from being aggressive. Also, it is better if they’re the only dog in the household. Their looks are absolutely unpredictable, but one thing is for sure: they’re going to be extremely adorable. You’ll definitely fall in love with them the moment you make eye contact.
These rare puppers have all the bootylicious qualities of a Corgi, with the elegance and the beautiful black-and-white spots of a Dalmatian. Dalmatians tend to be stubborn while Corgis are extremely friendly, so their mix is usually the best of both worlds. They also inherit their great energy from their Dalmatian side and are excellent herding dogs. Their looks are unpredictable, but they tend to be rather small.

They will keep any family busy thanks to their charisma, playfulness and energetic nature. They don’t tend to grow very big because their Corgi side is usually dominant, but they are much more active than them. They do however get most of their personality from their Dalmatian side. The Dalcorgi is an extremely rare dog, however, so one of these puppies won’t be easy to find, but if you manage to get one, you’ll never regret it.
Chow Chows are one of the rarest, most expensive breeds out there, but the combination of a Chow Chow with a Husky is even rarer. The Chusky has the wild spirit of the Husky and the elegance and confidence of the Chow Chow, making it a super attractive breed. However, they are high maintenance dogs and require lots of attention. Chow Chows used to be the favorite breed of the royals of ancient China – and for good reason!

If you’ve got the money, time, and energy needed to keep up with the Chusky, you’ll get a loyal, playful and affectionate four-legged friend who will stay by your side at all times. They develop very strong emotional connections with their owners and are super protective, and they also get along with other dogs as well. If you are up for the challenge, these puppies will never ever disappoint you.
How can you not look at this tiny little thing and not go aaaaaawww!!!? The extremely cute mix between a Dachshund and a Dalmatian is known as the Dalmachshund, and they are very, very rare to find. They are usually the size of a Dachshund, so you can carry them around anywhere you want and are good for people who live in apartments. Their fur, however, is unpredictable, but they usually have spots here and there.

As far as their personalities go, they can be stubborn and are usually very loyal, playful and sweet. They take after their Dalmatian ancestors and are tenacious, graceful and very protective. Despite their size, Dachshunds are hunting dogs as well, so this breed can be quite prone to hunting small animals. If you get to have one of them in your life, your world will be turned upside down for all the best reasons.
Huskies are one of the most popular breeds in the world because they’re playful, social, loyal and energetic, so it’s no surprise that they make the best crossbreeds. Mix them with the sweet, easy going and kind Labrador, and you’ll get the super cute Labsky. They are wild and outdoorsy like Huskies but have the friendly and loveable temperament of the Labrador.

If you want a bouncy, happy dog that will take you on many adventures, then the Labsky is the perfect puppy for you. Of course, they need a lot of care and extensive exercise, so keeping them locked up in an apartment is a bad idea. If you have a big house or extra time in your hands to take him for walks a couple of times a day, then you won’t regret it.
With a little Chug in your life, you get the bouncy, energetic character of a Chihuahua with the friendliness and sweetness of a Pug – so what’s not to like? One thing that makes these dogs attractive is their size, so they are great for people who live in apartments or who just don’t want to take care of a big dog. And also, have you seen their little snouts? They’re to die for.

These adorable doggos need to be socialized early though because they might turn their energy into an aggressive character trait and might try to attack bigger dogs. They are overly confident and can be stubborn at times, but are also super quick learners. They tend to adapt to their owners’ lifestyle, so wherever you go, they’ll follow.
#24. Corgi German Shepherd
The result of mixing a German Shepherd with a Corgi is absolutely amazing. The mix has the best qualities of each of its parents. Although they seem to be very different, the two breeds actually have a lot in common. For example, they were both originally bred as herding and working dogs. But it’s true that they look super different.

Physically, they usually have the small, chubby body of the Corgi, but the head and face of a German Shepherd and the combination is just perfect. They tend to be possessive and territorial, so it’s better if they’re the only dog in the family. All they want to do is protect their owners and be loyal to them. If you want a furry friend that will always be faithful to you, this is your dog.
Not only does it have a funny name, but the Beagleman is also a very popular breed nowadays, and it’s relatively new. Rising to popularity in the 2000s, the mix between a Beagle and a Doberman has proven to be a loyal and caring four-legged buddy that will certainly lighten up any family home. These dogs are literally built for companionship.

The Doberman was actually bred as a dog for personal protection, and the result was a very faithful and loving dog. On the other hand, the Beagle was bred as a hunting companion in the 18th century, but over time it also became a favorite breed for families who wanted to add a new loving member to their bunch. If you find one of these, don’t think twice.
The extravagant and majestic Cocker-Pei is the result of mixing a Shar-Pei and a Cocker Spaniel. Shar-Peis originated in ancient China and they are regarded as one of the rarest dogs in the world, especially because of their characteristic wrinkly, rough coat and blue-black tongue. The Cocker Spaniel, on the other hand, is much more common.

The wonderful Cocker-Pei has the best of both worlds. It has the uniqueness and beauty of a Shar-Pei, and the companionship and playfulness of a Cocker Spaniel. However, they tend to be difficult to raise, so an experienced dog owner is adviced for raising puppies. But once the difficult part is over, you’ll get an extremely loyal, sweet, caring, and happy dog by your side.

But when you cross them with the fluffy Chow Chow, you get a people-pleasing pupper with a strong personality and plenty of love to give.

They are also easy to train, so they are highly recommended for first-time dog owners. They are hard to find and expensive, but if you get your hands on one of them, never let them go!
#20. German Sherpei
German Sherpeis are the result of mixing the rare and expensive Shar-Pei with the popular German Shepherd. Just like Shar-Peis, they are highly intelligent dogs and very playful, and they also take after German Shepherds in that they are extremely loyal, protective and strong.

One thing is for sure though, you won’t regret getting one of these. They are one of the best companion breeds you could ever find.
The charisma and cuteness of the Horgi cannot be put into words. Horgis are the result of mixing a Husky and a Corgi, two of the most popular and beloved dog breeds in the world. Although both of them are very common, Horgies tend to be rare. That is because individually, each breed is challenging, so putting them together can prove to be a difficult task.

These super adorable puppers are adventurous and outgoing like Huskies, but friendly, sweet and playful like Corgis. Their looks will depend on which side of their line is stronger. You could get an adorable Corgi-sized puppy with typical Husky fur, or a sturdy, large dog with a Corgi face. But no matter how they end up looking, they will certainly be excellent companions and you will make plenty of happy memories together.
Bulldogs and Pugs are already similar in some ways, especially when it comes to their features.

They are even popularly known as Miniature Bulldogs because that’s what they look like.

Basset Hounds are known for being friendly, outgoing and playful, and they get along super well with kids.

The Sharp Asset varies in color and size but tends to inherit its coat from the Shar-Pei, which is water-repellent, dense, and wrinkly. Because of this, they are fairly easy to maintain and don’t require much grooming, which makes them very attractive to owners who don’t have a lot of free time on their hands. They tend to be larger than Basset Hounds but can still adapt to living in an apartment.
Golden Retrievers are one of the most beloved dog breeds in the world, not only because of their stunning looks but also for their charismatic and friendly nature.

They are easy to care for and their fur doesn’t need a lot of grooming. But what they do need is a lot of space to run and explore.

If you have plenty of space for your Bullmatian to run free, you’ll get a loyal, playful, caring and loving dog by your side at all times.
Golden Retrievers and Corgis are known for their easy-going and playful temperament, so imagine combining the two.
