The 10 True Hybrid and Cross Breed dogs

Updated on December 31, 2017

The Hybrid Dog Breeds

Biologically dogs are the member of the Canidae family, of carnivorous that includes domestic dogs, wolves, foxes, jackals, coyotes, and many other extant and extinct dog-like mammals. Australian Dingo and Indian Dhole are the new members of carnivorous family and been considered as a separate subspecies. The dogs are the member sub-species of wolf (Canis lupus familiaris) and addressed to dog Canidae family. Commonly we use the term Hybrid for a designer, cross-breed or mixed-breed dogs, which is incorrect. Breeding between same canid (Dog canidae family) is not a hybrid.

When we use the term “hybrid breed” that refer the cross breeding between two different species. So breeding between dog with any other carnivorous member (Wolf, Coyote, foxes, jackals, coyotes, Dingo or Dhole) is also biologically not a true hybrid breed. But in this article I am considering differentiation for term “Hybrid” with breeding between the subspecies of dogs (Separating the Cross-breed or mixed-breed, designer dogs). Considered hybrid breed for

Cross between “Dog and Wolf” – Wolfdog
Cross between “Dog and coyote” – Coydog
Cross between “Dog and jackal” – Jackal Hybrid
Cross between “Dog and Dingo” - Dingo Hybrid
Cross between “Dog and Dhole” – Pi Dhole Dog (Unconfirmed)
Cross between “Dog and Fox” – Dox (Unconfirmed)
