What’s more magnificent than a pit bull? Nothing! Except for pit bull mixes.  Take a look at Pitsky- Pitbull crossed with a Husky.  Don’t like that? For a smaller package: a pit bull and dachshund mix called a Bulldach!

Pitbulls have been successfully mixed with Siberian Huskies, Golden Retrievers, Labradors, Rottweilers, dachshund, Chihuahua, Bullmastiff, pugs, boxer, beagles, Dalmatian, chows, Great Danes and more. Many of these crossbreeds bring out the best traits of both breeds.

Take a look at some of the popular Pitbull mixes that are garnering the attention of pet owners from all corners of the world.
