    : Pointer and Setter; resulting in a "Pointsetter, a traditional Christmas pet"

    : Labrador Retriever and Curly Coat Retriever, producing "Lab Coat Retriever, convenient for workers at the National Institutes of Health"

    : Bloodhound and Labrador, sire and dam of "Blabador, a gossipy barker"

    : Malamute and Pointer, generating "Moot Point, a dog owned by....oh well, it doesn't matter"

    A pointer + any kind of guard-type dog = point guard; perfect when you need a fifth person for that pickup basketball game.

    I have a dog which I call a doxidor, she's part dachshund and part black lab.
    Picture a black lab with very short legs.

    LOL, no idea, we adopted her from an animal rescue group and were originally told she was a cocker spaniel mix. As she grew longer but not taller, we realized she definitely was not cocker spaniel. The vet estimated her heritage based on appearance plus size and shape of head.

    Heh, a friend of ours used to have a neighbor with what must have been a doxidor. Its name was Squatty. Very appropriate for the short-legged pup.

    I'm against the designer mixed breeds, in part because so many of the purebreds already have genetic predispositions to health problems due to overbreeding. For example, Gold Retrievers and King George Cavilier spaniels are prone to cancer.

    Also, there are a lot of nice mixed breeds in shelters and rescues waiting to find their forever home.

    I saw in Home Depot last week a St. bernard/black lab mix. HUGE dog, looked very black lab but with longer hair and big head. Very very sweet dog, but the size of a small horse!

    What about a bulldog and shitszu, resulting in a Bullshit!

    Call it a designer dog and people will pay hundreds of dollars, call it by it's real name, a mutt and no one wants it.

    Thanks for saying that :respec:. There is enough crossbreed dogs in shelters who can't find a home, let's not play the apprentice sorcerer and try to create a new trend out of it.

    I like both chihuahuas & pugs so I'm betting this is one adorable dog.

    One of the funniest looking dogs I've ever seen was a basset hound/chow cross. The body of a basset hound and the face, ears and tail of a chow chow. :lol:

    Billie (pics 1 and 2) is a Bordernese - half-border collie and half-bernese mountain dog.

    Baxter is what we call a "West Valley Brown" after the shelter we found him in.

    Both are rescues.

    Awwww, reckless. . . DARLING DOGGIES!!! I want to take them home with me. . . .

    I don't know what to call our collie/black lab mix, whom we adopted 13 years ago. Blollie? Collab? Colliedor? She does have a bit of a herding instinct but also is strong in the retriever department (despite being nearly 14 and having only 3 legs she still LURVES her tennis balls).

    Our supposed "all lab" that we adopted from a rescue a few years ago (mom was definitely yellow lab but dad unknown) turns out to have quite the hound/terrier instincts. He loves to dig up moles. . . we call him our molehound.
