    Often, when bred to each other they produce a variety of appearances in their puppies. Over time, as these dogs are bred to each other and desirable traits are selected for, and undesirable traits selected against, the genetics of that breed will become more homogenous and pairings of dogs with the group will breed true. Typically, designer dogs are a genetic mix, and as I noted above, they can express traits in a very variable way. ” The more unrelated dogs that are used, the less likely that there will be an increase in genetically based problems. In other words, designer dogs fail to “breed true” and can be very alternative from one another with respect to many traits. In reality, today’s designer dogs are just a number of generations away from being considered as purebred dogs in their own right. Let’s start with the opposite, what happens when distantly related dogs are bred. One way to combat this inbreeding problem is to create a large number of the cross-bred dogs and to use many or most of them in the subsequent breeding to enlarge the new “breed.
