What Breed Is That Dog?

Whether a dog is a purebred, hybrid, or mixed-breed pup, the one guarantee is he or she is 100% pure dog.

Many dogs are what is known as a "mixed-breed" dog, often fondly called a "mutt". It is a dog of two or more breeds, and generally refers to a dog of unknown descent. Many mixed-breed dogs have the recognizable characteristics and personality of a single breed, or a combination of two breeds.

A "purebred" dog is a dog of a single, recognized breed, of two same-breed purebred dogs. The dogs of a "breed" are closely-related and visibly similar, possessing a set of inherited and distinguishing characteristics, such as size, coat color, intelligence, temperament, sense of sight and smell, and hearing.

"Crossbreed" dogs, also called "hybrid" or "designer" dogs, are becoming very popular. This type of dog is produced by the intentional breeding of two different known purebred dog breeds, or a cross between an existing hybrid dog and a purebred dog. The specific combination is designed to combine the best traits from each contributing breed.

Journalist Adopted By Pup

When a journalist went to cover a story about a shelter for abandoned dogs, a puppy, upon the journalist leaving, clung to him with her legs (see video below). The journalist was so moved, he adopted her.
