Statistics:

Weight: 21-32KG

The Poodle is a popular 'water dog' breed for crossbreeding because of the breed's positive characteristics such as it's robustness, cleverness and it's good temper. The breed is very adaptable to their surroundings. The Poodle is so high on the Hypoallergenic listings for it's non-shedding fur, making it super paw-pular with allergy sufferers, although they do require regular brushing and clipping.

Statistics:

Weight: 5-8 KG 

Height: Up to 27cm
Origin: Tibet/China

The Shih Tzu is thought to have been cross bred between the Lhasa Apso and the Pekingese. It sheds little to no hair despite its abundance of fur! This breed should be brushed to make sure fur does not get tangled or matted. This breed is also known to have traits such as an 'underbite' where the lower teeth stick out and are visible behind their lip giving them a toothy smile.

Originally the Bedlington Terrier was crossbred from the Whippet family and the Terrier family to produce a beautiful non-shedding thick coat. This coat starts from the legs up to the top of the head and sometimes produces tufts at the end of the ears. This breed is easy to maintain and loves a walk.

Weight: Up to 5 KG

Height: 23-33cm

The Chinese Crested was once considered a curiosity with its hairless mutation that has within recent years become a desirable feature in dog breeds. The lack of fur coat means the dog does not shed hair, have fleas or body odour. Although this breed needs little to no grooming, it does however need it's owners to take care of their delicate skin since it can burn in the summer or be too cold in the winter.
