Interbreed outbreeding - mating dogs of different breeds in order to obtain new qualities, both working and exterior. The history of mestizo has more than 14 centuries. As soon as a person began to breed pedigreed dogs with certain qualities, then half-breeds appeared.
They arose when breeders needed to “pour in” fresh blood, to achieve the appearance of certain traits of character, appearance, to get rid of breed diseases. Among the most unusual metis can be called:
- Pomsky - Pomeranian + Husky;
- Pittsky - Pitbull + Husky;
- Golden-Siberian Rehaski - Golden Retriever + Huskies;
- porgi - that poodle + corgi;
- chow-chow - chow-chow + german shepherd;
- Schnudel - Schnauzer + Poodle;
- Bulldog - English Bulldog + German Shepherd;
- beagle - beagle + German shepherd.

Description of breed dog mestizo
The appearance of mixed breed dogs is determined by mixing the traits of both pedigreed parents. Elemental hybrids often have features of ancient dogs - erect ears , strong straight limbs of medium length, tail twisted into a bagel. If it is impossible to determine the features of the parents, then the half-breed is called a mongrel.
Colors mestizov diverse. They can inherit the distinctive features of a parent or a mixture of both colors. So, for example, Pomski can have both a red color inherent in the Pomeranian spitz and a dark mask on the face - a characteristic sign of the husky.
Métis, bred for the sake of obtaining an unusual color, are silver Labradors. Their unusual color is obtained by crossing Labrador and Weimaraner.
The metis from the crossing of a dachshund and a dalmatian - tolmatin, has a color characteristic of the dalmatian at the exterior of the dachshund. Horgi - Husky + Corgi coloring and characteristic mask taken from Husky, and the length and structure of the wool from the corgi.
Half-breeds are considered balanced, sociable, non-aggressive - they have received the best character traits from their pedigreed parents. However, this rule does not always work. Midis of dwarf breeds are hysterical, cowardly or too aggressive. Watchdog hybrids can manifest themselves as difficult to control, too independent, stubborn.
With professional outbreeding, not only the exterior, but also character traits, working qualities are taken into account. For example, Bloodstor, obtained by crossing the Moscow Watchdog and Bloodhound, combine the best traits of both breeds. They are excellent and loyal guards with excellent sense of grip and endurance, high wit and ability to train.
Horgi - friendly, intelligent and obedient. Tolmatins, as a rule, are kind and sympathetic, but sometimes not the best qualities of parents manifest in their character — stubbornness, lack of intelligence. Pitsky, despite dedication to the owner, friendliness and reliability, are excessively headstrong.
But all the small flaws in the nature of hybrids can be corrected by professional education.
The main part of mestizo are well trained. Among them there are even stars agility and dog freestyle. If training and education started at a very early age, then half-breeds can achieve results that exceed the original breeds. Knowing the features of the parents, a professional dog expert can develop the necessary qualities of a puppy.
Care and health
Metis are not demanding to care, if it is not hybrids with long hair. It is enough to bathe them as the wool is contaminated, monitor the presence of blood-sucking parasites, periodically examine the ears and eyes, and remove plaque.
Cutting claws is recommended for dogs that, under certain conditions of detention, cannot do so in a natural way - grinding off when walking on a hard surface.
As a rule, hybrids are not susceptible to diseases inherent in parent breeds. They are less likely than pedigreed dogs, allergic reactions, higher immunity, longer life expectancy.
But this does not exclude the possibility of diseases of rabies, plague and other diseases of dogs. Therefore, mestizas as well as pedigree puppies must be timely vaccinated, regularly examined and properly fed.
Half-breeds are not whimsical in food, but this does not mean that they can be fed with leftovers from the owners table - dogs do not tolerate spices, seasonings, spicy and fatty foods. A pet's diet should be tailored to its age, size, and physical activity.
In order for a puppy to grow quickly and form properly, its diet should contain proteins (30-40%), carbohydrates to ensure energy processes, vitamins and dietary fiber.
If metis eats natural food, then it is supplemented with special vitamin and mineral supplements. When feeding ready-made feeds there is no such need, but the dog should always have plenty of fresh clean water.
Many mestizo are displayed for content outside the home. This does not apply to decorative rocks. Aboriginal breeds hybridization allows dogs to tolerate the climate of the region, quickly adapt to changing conditions.
If the half-caste is acquired for living in a city apartment, then it needs regular walks, outdoor games, and a certain amount of physical activity. However, there are hybrids that are less demanding for walking. They go to the cat tray or on a hygienic diaper.
However, each dog needs its own sleeping place, bowls for food and water. Puppies for development and games - special toys.
