Ever heard of a Horgi? What about a Cheagle? Or how about a Schnoodle? All three of these are names of mixed breed dogs! Next Friday, July 31 is National Mutt Day, and we decided to kick off the celebration early with this tribute to our favorite mixed breed dogs names. This also gives us a chance to highlight some of the fabulously unique “hybrid” dogs and mystery mixes that are part of the DogWatch Hidden Fences family. Check it out, and tell us your favorite mixed breed name in the comments!

Are you a proud “mutt” parent? Post a photo of your mixed breed dog on our Facebook page or via Instagram using the tag #DogWatchMutt and tell us why he or she is the best dog out there. We’ll collect the best photos and stories for an upcoming blog post all about mutts.

and last but not least, “All American Dog” – This name comes from Emily and Pat West of DogWatch of Columbus. The Wests recently adopted Yogi, a black and white mixed breed, from a local animal shelter. They puzzled over his breed heritage – his floppy ears say Hound, his coloring suggests Border Collie – but couldn’t come up with an easy answer. Rather than guess or go the DNA test route, they made their own breed name for Yogi – All American Dog! We love the West’s creativity. Their unique choice proves that it doesn’t matter what breed mix or fun name you use, as long as you love and care for your precious pup.
