6 Most Popular Designer Dogs

6 Most popular Designer Dogs - Premier Pups
Published Friday, August 6, 2021 by Elena R.

A designer dog is a cross between two different purebred dogs. This means that a designer puppy is a mixed breed and has parents from two separate breeds. 

By crossing two highly popular breeds that have the most desirable personality traits, a new and improved breed is achieved. The designer puppy inherits a combination of wonderful traits from both parent breeds and a fashionable look. Designer puppies also develop hybrid vigor, which means they are healthier and live longer lives than their parent breeds, and are not generally prone to the same health issues as their purebred parents.

Designer breeds are every dog lover’s dream come true.  

Their worldwide popularity is attributed to their charming and unique looks, sweet nature, and fun-loving personality. They are elegant, stylish, sporty, and glamorous. They’re affectionate, charismatic, smart, cuddly, and wild. They love to play, cuddle and compete in canine sports. They are wonderful adventure companions, therapy dogs, and amazing family pets. Simply put, they check all the boxes.  

Unlike their parent breeds that have breed standards and signature looks, each designer dog has a unique appearance. They can either take after one parent or the other, or they can develop their own never-seen-before look. Designer dog appearance is one of the aspects that make them so popular and highly sought-after.
