Mixed breed canines are also affectionately known as ‘Heinz 57 dogs’. This basically refers to a dog where the exact parentage in unknown, or it involves more than two different types of dog. While some purebred pedigree dogs can suffer from health and behavioural problems associated with that particular breed, the wide pool of genes that’s found in a mixed breed can create a wonderfully balanced and well-adjusted dog with the characteristics of a whole spectrum of breeds.

Size, colour, weight and so on will depend entirely on the dog. Sometimes you can clearly see the physical traits of a particular breed and in other instances, you’ll be left guessing the whole of the dog’s life exactly what its parentage is!
