This is a list of common dog crossbreeds.
Breeds of hybrid origin
Originating as crossbreeds, now sustained independently of the parent breeds.
Common first-cross hybrids
These are dogs created deliberately by crossing two purebred dogs. Sometimes known as "designer dogs", and often given portmanteau names derived from those of the parent breeds. There is a very large number of possible combinations, and the following table only lists those most often bred deliberately. Breed associations such as the AKC, the UKC, and the CKC, do not recognize "designer dog" crosses as breeds.
