A Mutt or mixed breed dog is a testament to nature. Without any input — some might say interference — from humans, the mixed breed defies description. Available in all sizes, shapes, colors, and patterns, they might have a long snout or a short nose. They may display pointed ears or floppy ones. They could have a stubby tail, spindly legs, a giant spot over their left eye — or all three.
As you know – a Mixed breed is a cross between two breeds or several breeds. It is the most common dog in the world. Read more about the common loveable mixed breed dog (commonly called a “Mutt”).
A mongrel, mutt or mixed-breed dog is a dog that does not belong to one officially recognized breed and is not the result of intentional breeding. Estimates place their numbers at 150 million animals worldwide. Although the term “mixed-breed dog” is preferred by some, many mongrels have no known purebred ancestors. Technically, crossbreed dogs, and “designer dogs” while also a mix of breeds, differ from mongrels in being intentionally bred. Although mongrels are viewed as of less commercial value than intentionally bred dogs, they are thought to be less susceptible to genetic health problems associated with inbreeding (based on the theory of heterosis), and have enthusiasts and defenders who prefer them to intentionally bred dogs.
Definitions of mutt: an inferior dog or one of mixed breed, Other name: Crossbreed Dogs
Most dogs are mutts, and many of their owners are fine with the word mutt, despite the word’s original implication of “inferior, mixed breed dog.” Dogs called crossbreeds are deliberately bred to combine characteristics of two or more recognized breeds, while mutts — also known as mongrels — are the result of accidental mixing of breeds. In the late 1800s, mutt was a derogatory term meaning either “stupid person” or “stupid dog.”
