Crossbreeding consists of the union of two or more dogs of different breeds with the aim of obtaining a canine with the temperamental and physical characteristics of its parents. Many people are dedicated to crossing breeds of this type of animal.
Not all people agree that this process is carried out since it endangers the female dog’s health. That, in turn, leads to puppies being born with health problems.
The most natural thing is to cross our dogs with others of the same breed. However, over the years, experiments have been carried out with different breeds to obtain canines with specific properties.
The Vizslas are one of the breeds that have been crossed during history with other types of canines. The animals that have been used in this process are:
- American Staffordshire Terrier
- German Wirehaired Pointer
- Labrador Retriever
- Transylvanian Hound
The results of breeds originated with each of these combinations are:
