Default Crossbreed Idea

Well I wanted to get a Dalmation and a Hungarian Puli one day. I love those dog breeds and I've always wanted one.

Though a thought came to mind that what would a Dalmation and Puli cross look like? Would it be a good idea considering they are both too very different dogs but they are both working dogs.

I would be getting two dogs in one!

I wouldn't recommend it unless you find one in a shelter or rescue.
Otherwise get one or the other and from a good breeder.

No you wouldnt. I have a Australian Shepherd/Alaskan Huskey, both working breeds I should have a high drive dog right?

No. I have a fairly laid back mello dog.

Haha, it would be a Spotted Mop.

I wouldn't recommend ever actually trying to breed for one of these, but the image is amusing.

Yeah a spotted mop.

It would be interesting but why is not a good idea? I'm just wondering why.

Yeah we have a kelpie cross border collie and she is as lazy as anything lol.

Because breeding crosses is not responsiable breeding, getting a cross from rescue if fine but dont get a so called designer breed, it will cost you loads and you are likely to get a un healthy dog

It's one of those things where it is Fun to think about, but something you just shouldn't do.

I have a 3 Purebred Newfoundland dogs champion's in 3 countries for the male, Champions in 2 Countries for the females. You would "think" having the perfect speciments for the breed I would have dogs that could swim...or even have the drive to swim....or could possibly cart and be a draft dog.

No. I got 3 dogs that can't swim. One that almost drowned if I hadn't rescued it when it fell of a peir. And of my 4 Newf's prior to these 3...only 1 could swim and compete in water rescue competitions. And, you would think they would be healthy instead of having elbow dysplasia which means my male will never be able to do carting.

You can lose either way with purebreds, Crossbreds or Mongrels.

I've never really looked into this but considering all the damage breeding for show has done to breeds (ie. bulldog) I'm curious as to why you'd expect an unhealthy dog out of breeding two healthy dogs of different breed?

I'm not arguing for breeding crosses I'm just looking to be edjumacated.
