Even though Pitbulls have a bad reputation, there is no reason to be worried at all. If these adorable dogs get into the right hands, they can become the sweetest, most loyal and affectionate dogs ever. They are protective over their owners and great with kids. But if you would like to combine their traits, with some of another dog breed, then why not consider getting a Pitbull mix?
A mix, or designer dog is the cross of two or more dog breeds. They existed pretty much always, but their popularity increased in the last couple of decades. People noticed that combining two breeds can result in one, even better, designer dog.
So if you can’t decide between a Pitbull and another dog breed, let’s see what Pitbull mixes have to offer!
Poodle Pitbull Mix
The Boodle is a designer dog that was created in hopes it would be easier to train than its parents. In theory, the Boodle has all the best qualities of a Pitbull and a Poodle.
But, in reality, it doesn’t always work that way. With a mixed breed, you don’t know what you’re getting. Your puppy can have more traits of the Standard Poodle or the Pitbull.
Boodles are intelligent dogs that learn quickly. They will master any trick or command you teach them. Pitbulls have the reputation of being aggressive. But it doesn’t have to be like that with the Boodle. If you socialize your dog from early on, you shouldn’t have any problems.
This designer dog is very protective of its family. Especially children. So if anyone attacks you, even jokingly, they will protect you.
The Pitbull Poodle Mix weighs between 40 and 70 pounds, and they are 18 to 24 inches tall. As already said, they are medium sized dogs with a dense, single coat. Not a double coat. Their coat comes in different colors.
Reputable breeders could charge you anywhere from $1,500 to $2,500 for a Pit Boodle puppy. However, when buying a puppy you definitely shouldn’t be looking for a bargain.
The Pitbull Poodle mix is a healthy dog. But just like any mix they can have certain health issues. These include conditions such as: ear infections, heart disease, bloating, hip dysplasia.
This is a pretty unique crossbreed, right? Why then not learn more about the Poodle Pitbull crossbreed.
Pitbull Beagle Cross
The Pitbull Beagle Mix, also known as the Beaglebull, is a very unusual crossbreed. This is because Pitbulls and Beagle dogs are very different breeds. In so many ways.
The Beagle Bull is a medium-sized dog, but with energy levels that are out of this world! However, don’t worry. This special designer dog can also enjoy a lazy day here and there. Also, because of their amazing characteristics, they make great family dogs too! But more on that later!
Generally speaking, the Beaglebull is a very sociable and friendly dog and makes a great companion for humans. As mentioned above, they have very high energy levels and love to have fun and play around. But if you thought that they don’t enjoy cuddles, you’re wrong! They are very affectionate and enjoy snuggle time with their family.
There isn’t much difference in size when it comes to male vs female Beaglebulls. Both have a rather friendlier appearance and will grow around 18 to 20 inches. When it comes to their weight, your Beaglebull will be between 30 and 40 pounds heavy.
Because this is a mixed breed every dog will look very different. But generally speaking, the Pitbull Beagle Mix is quite thick and muscular looking. But they don’t look as intimidating as the American Pitbull Terrier (Bull Terriers). They look much friendlier.
The coat of the Beaglebull is short and very smooth to the touch. But don’t get fooled. They might have short hair or a short coat, but they still shed quite a bit.

Pitbull Chihuahua Mix
If you want a playful pup that is full of life then the Pitbull Chihuahua Mix is for you. This mix is also called Chipit or Pithuahua. Sounds funny, right?
Male Chipits are between 14 and 18 inches tall and weigh between 20 and 35 pounds. The females are smaller. They are between 12 and 16 inches tall and are between 15 and 30 pounds heavy.
Both males and females have a broad and muscular build. So, they are strong and sturdy dogs.
Their coat can be short or long. If the Chihuahua parent breed had long hair, then the mix could have long fur too. But in most cases, a Pitbull Chihuahua Mix will have a smooth and shiny coat.
Chipits are loyal and want to protect you and your family. So it’s good to socialize them from early on. The more places, people, and animals they see and get to know the less they will bark.
They aren’t large dogs, so they can adapt to living in an apartment. But they would be the happiest in a house with a big yard. Somewhere they can go out at all times. Just to run around, be active.
If you buy a Pitbull Chihuahua mix from a breeder you’ll pay around 300 to 700 dollars. They aren’t that expensive because they aren’t popular either. Not many people want a Chipit.
The Pitbull Chihuahua mix lives quite long. Their life expectancy is between ten and 13 years. But they can live longer if you take good care of them.

Pitbull Husky Cross
A Pitbull Husky Mix is the result of crossing a Pitbull with a Siberian (or Alaskan) husky. Therefore, this breed has no official recognition and is classified as a mixture.
It is a very slim and muscular breed, with strong legs for running. If they are properly trained and socialized, they are friendly and loving companions. But if they are neglected or poorly socialized, they can become destructive and unruly.
This demanding breed needs a lot of activity and attention to show its best behavior. If you want a quiet and cuddly lap dog, you have to look at other breeds.
Since the breed is a hybrid, there is no official standard. Some look more like pit bulls, others more like huskies. However, you can expect them to be tall and slim, have long legs and muscular forehand and backhand.
A full-blown husky pit bull mixture will be between 16-25 inches. You should expect men to weigh between 60 and 80 pounds and women between 40 and 60 pounds.
You can expect a faithful and protective companion with a very playful attitude. They can’t stand staying indoors and need at least one hour of activity every day. These pups need a lot of space to run and play and don’t mind living outside in the warmer months. They love to talk. They bark when they play, see something suspicious or want your attention.
This puppy is very demanding. Therefore if you are a first time dog owner — this isn’t the dog for you. Before you accept one, you must be aware that it is a full-time commitment. So make sure to inform yourself beforehand.

The Pitbull and Rottweiler mix, also known as Pitweiler, is a great choice for people who are looking for a protective, large and endearing puppy.
They are an active dog that is distinguished in sports such as mobility, obedience and tracking. Powerful, persistent and smart, they are not a breed for a new owner or someone who lives in a small apartment.

Basset Hound Pitbull Cross
A Basset Hound Pitbull mix is, as the name implies, a crossbreed of a Pitbull and a Basset Hound. Obviously, because this is a crossbreed, kennel clubs like the AKC do not consider them a real breed.
Given that they are completely different, each puppy will usually have a different temperament too. Many people who own these dogs say that they are charming but fierce. They are loyal and devoted to their family. These dogs will do anything to please you, so they are obedient and sweet-tempered.
There is no standard to how these dogs look. But, if we look at both parent breeds we can get an idea of how their puppies might look. So, both parents have short coats. And that’s where their similarities end.
When it comes to their coat color, there is no rule. They can be one solid color or a combination of white and another color. A Basset Hound Pitbull mix is between 15 and 17 inches tall and can weigh between 40 and 60 pounds.
The Basset Hound Pitbull Mix is a relatively healthy dog that lives between 12 and 16 years. Crossbreeds are usually much healthier than their parent breeds anyways.

Dalmatian Pitbull Mix
The Dalmatian Pitbull mix is a rare and fascinating combo of a Dalmatian and an American Pitbull Terrier. Known for it’s unique combination, this crossbreed is rapidly gaining popularity among designer breeders.
As we said earlier, the Pitmatian being a mixed hybrid, its appearance entirely depends on dominant genes that it inherits. The thing is that it is only after a certain age that accurate predictions about its looks can be made. Nonetheless, these dogs are large, well-muscled, and powerful. They weigh around 45 to 70 pounds with a height of 18-24 inches. But male Pitmatians usually have more weight than their female companions.
The Dalmatians have a white base with black spots. Meanwhile, Pitbulls have a patched, black, white, brown, tan, red, or fawn-colored coat. The final product of the Pitmatians looks a lot like Dalmations with a white base and spots that are either black or liver-colored.
Since it’s a large dog, it needs house training and obedience training from quite a young age. Fortunately, your puppy has a Dalmatian in it, and the Dalmatians are good with obedience training. By the time you will teach your dog that you are the master and that it should follow all your commands.
If you didn’t know, both parent breeds are vulnerable to several health issues—for instance, deafness. The Pitmatians are highly prone to Canine Congenital Sensorineural Deafness (CCSD) that is linked to a gene named MITF (microphthalmia-associated transcription factor). As with everything else, the gene determines the pigmentation, and the extreme white colour with black spots is the cause of CCSD. So their cross will be prone to these diseases too.
