A Bouvador is a designer dog that was bred with a Labrador Retriever and a Bouvier des Flandres. These guys are a medium to large breed that generally grow to be an average of 60 pounds when they’re adults. They are highly intelligent and make great working dogs. In fact, they actually enjoy being given a job to do. Just make sure you start training them in whatever that job may be from a very young age.
They have moderate energy levels and enjoy curling up with you and lazing around at the end of a hard day at work. This breed does need plenty of space to move around, so they wouldn’t be the best choice for someone living in an apartment, or home without a yard.
A Shellion as a hybrid dog that was bred with a Shetland Sheepdog and a Papillon. They’re short, stubby, smart little guys who are said to be easy to train and very loyal to their owners. They typically have a long, bushy coat that does require a fair bit of grooming, although they still only have a single layer coat, which means it won’t be as much as some other breeds.
Shellions are highly adaptable, and will thrive in a multitude of environments, including apartments or condos, or larger homes with huge, fenced-in yards. They are loving animals who get along with mostly everyone, although they may be a bit shy around strangers.
The English Mastweiler
As you can guess, the English Mastweiler is a cross between a Rottweiler and an English Mastiff. They were originally bred to be both companion and superior guard dogs, due to their muscular stature and loyal behavior to their humans. These big boys usually grow up to be around 110-150 pounds as adults and have a short coat that doesn’t require too much maintenance.
They have very calm personalities and do well around children and other animals, although because they’re so large, they should be monitored around smaller animals, especially when they’re (huge) puppies. They are some of the sweetest doggos out there and they love to play. They do need a good bit of exercise and thrive most in homes with large yards, or with a family that can take them to the park for sufficient playtime every day.
This adorable little guy is a cross between a Jack Russell Terrier and a Pug. They have high energy levels and are said to love to run, which means they need to be in a home with a large, fenced-in yard, or with someone who will take then to the dog park for an hour or so each day.
Jugs are affectionate and loyal, and tend to get along with everyone, including children and other animals. They’re fairly small, and usually grow up to be somewhere between 10-20 pounds. This breed is also highly intelligent, and they pick up on training more easily than others. Jugs are known for being in good health, for the most part, and they live for an average of 12-15 years.
The Swissneese a mix between the Great Pyrenees and the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. They’re super loyal and affectionate, and they make a terrific dog for families with children, or for single owners who want a hiking companion!
They’re a fairly large breed and typically grow to somewhere between 95-115 pounds. Swissneese’s have long, thick coats, due to their ancestors, so they’re best suited for living in mild-weathered areas, not somewhere where they’re going to get overheated. Their fuzzy fur also requires quite a bit of maintenance to keep them cool – and to keep them from creating another full dog via a fur pile on your couch!
