Mixed Terrier Breeds

There is a growing number of different breeds out there and for terriers it is no exception. In many cases, this is not a bad thing, but sometimes it can be. Generally, you want to make sure that if there are two breeds that have been mated together, that they are generally around the same size. This helps to ensure that the litter is a healthy weight. Another thing is to try to make sure that there are no resounding differences.

Such differences could include a breed with a long snout versus one with a very short snout. This could possibly lead to the offspring potentially having breathing troubles. The lesson to be learned here (as is with many different things in life) is that just because you CAN do something, doesn’t mean you should.

So if you are interested in getting a mixed breed dog, it is best to do a little research first to see how widespread the breed is. Check and see how their general health is and common behavioral patterns, etc..
