This adorable ball of floof is an Alusky; a mix between a Siberian Husky and an Alaskan Malamute. Alusky’s thick fur is perfect for those who live in areas where it never gets hot, but they can be very uncomfortable in warm weather. This means that they’re probably not the best choice for anyone living in Florida or Arizona. They’re very active pets and tend to need a lot of playtime and exercise.
These guys need to be in a home with lots of space, and don’t tend to do well in condos or apartments, unless you’re going to have them out on adventures with you most of the time, anyways! Alusky’s are medium to large in size, and they’ve got a loving and calm personality. They do great around children, and as long as they’re socialized from a young age, they do well with other animals, too.
A Peekapoo is a cross between a Pekingese and a Poodle – and they are just way too cute. These little guys are commonly known as “teddy bear dogs,” because of their small stature and fluffy faces. They’re pretty laid-back, but they also love to play and go for walks, so they’d make the perfect companion for someone who can give them the attention they deserve.
They’re very loving and loyal, but they don’t react very well to being aggressively handled and may not be the greatest choice for a family with small children. Peekapoos are super smart and easy to train, and they tend to be fast when learning new tricks. Because of this, they’re a good choice for those who don’t have much experience with dogs (as long as you keep the above in mind!)
The Puggit was bred with a Pug and an Italian Greyhound. And because they are descended from race dogs – they do love to run. They tend to do best with active owners that will take them to the park every day or living in a home that has a large yard, or enough space for them to run around.
These guys are very sweet, and they’ve got a calm personality that makes them a good choice for families with children. Puggits have a short, sleek coat, which makes for low maintenance and minimal shedding, though they may also be extra sensitive to cold weather.
The Lhasapoo is a cuddly, small and playful breed, mixed using a Poodle and a Lhasa Apso. They make wonderful family dogs and are great around other animals and children. Lhasapoos are gentle, but fiercely loyal and protective of their people. Sure, they may not make the best guard dogs, but they will absolutely alert you if they think there’s something wrong.
This breed can adapt well to living in apartments, and although they love to play, they don’t need a ton of exercise every day, as long as they get their daily walks and the occasional trip to the park! But when you are at home, you can bet that your little Lhasapoo will be right there with you, most likely perched on your lap.
Chorkies are wiggly little doggos that were bred from a Chihuahua and Yorkshire Terrier. These guys only get to be around 10 pounds maximum, which puts them in the toy-sized category. The Chorkie is loyal and loving, and a very vocal little guy.
He is super adorable but can also be considered a “yippy” dog. Because of their size, they can do very well in condos and apartments, although they do have fairly high energy levels. The Chorkie needs plenty of playtime and does great in families with children. Due to its parent breeds, it’s also an intelligent pet and picks up on training easily.
