We all know how popular "designer" dogs-including the Goldendoodle (Golden Retriever-Poodle), Puggle (Pug-Beagle), Cavachon (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel-Bichon Frise)-can be among celebrities and pet parents alike for their adorable faces and desirable traits, but what about the breeds that just shouldn't be mixed? From physical disparities to personality differences, here's our list of breeds that won't be trendy any time soon.
The Komonhund's short legs wouldn't be able to keep up with its long, mop-like coat, making it tough for the Komonhund to get the daily exercise it needs. Depending on which type of Dachshund the Komondor was bred with (smooth, longhaired or wirehaired), the Komonhunds cords would also require extra grooming.
2. Pitkingese (Pekingese-Pit bull)
Mixing a traditionally inactive, regal Pekingese with a rambunctious, strong-willed Pit bull would make for a truly unique, if confused, lapdog. Regardless of their unbalanced personality traits and physical appearance, the Pitkingese would certainly make a devoted family dog.
3. Cha-Cha (Chow Chow-Mexican Hairless)
Though the Chow Chow can be considered too hairy and the Mexican Hairless dog, or Xoloitzcuintli, considered too bald for some owners, the Cha-Cha may be a perfect-albeit humorous-medium. With a lion-like mane and spotted body, the Cha-Cha's ancestry would date back to both Imperial China and Central America.

What do you get when you mix a purse-friendly, miniature pup with one that's almost as large as a miniature horse? A Great Chihane, of course. Though its size may be a source of confusion, the Great Chihane would be a friendly family pet that requires minimal grooming.
5. Bappet (Basset Hound-Whippet)
With the traits of both a born athlete (like the Whippet) and instinctual scent hunter (like the Basset Hound) the Bappet would use its newly developed speed to track down scents far and wide. A great companion from the start, Bappet puppies may need time to learn not to speed over their own floppy ears.
6. Weimarogi (Weimaraner-Corgi)
While the Weimaraner is historically known for hunting deer and boar, the Corgi's herding instincts may take over in the Weimarogi, making it more apt to gently nip at the heels of its big game than help its owners hunt it down.
7. Hug (Husky-Pug)
While the Husky is built for the wild and renowned for its endurance, the brachicephalic, or short-nosed, Pug isn't necessarily built for speed. The Hug may not be able to pull a sled like its ancestors but it will certainly make an adorable and outgoing companion.
