Designer Dog Breeds information
Pure breeds and mixed breeds have always had different social statuses in canine culture. The “blue blood,” or pedigree dogs, were seen as an upper crust, whilst mixed-breed, mutt, and mongrel dogs were regarded as lowly. It is more appropriate to use the term “crossbreeds” to describe the offspring created by blending two lineages from the same species (in this case, the canine). In essence, a crossbreed or designer dog has distinguishable parents who are members of two recognized breeds, as opposed to a mixed breed dog or mutt, which is one of unrecorded ancestry.
