    no thats a mixed breed. Unless you keep breeding them and get AKC UKC or ADBA to accept it as a breed, For instance the AKC does not recognise the American Pit bull Terrier as a breed but UKC and ADBA does . Why? The APBT is an english bull dog that was crossed with a terrier breed over 100 years ago . Its definately a breed but AKC says its a mixed a breed. UKC and ADBA both say its a breed . I have Colby UKC dogs myself. So yes you can create a new breed by doing that .

    No, they would be a mixed breed, mutts or mongrels. No specific breed at all. You know respectable breeders would not do that. They spend years and years developing and maintaining the breeds standards not to be ruined by BYB.

    They'd be mixed dogs aka mutts. The only way to produce purebreds is  by breeding them with the SAME BREED as they are.

    in the USA there is org known as the answer is found there...  if sire and dam are both AKC registered having pedigrees (ancestry) acknowledged by the club, their offspring,  pups are entitled entry, certified, given "papers" and placed in their registry.....this applies only to matings of dogs of the same breed....cross breedings have no merit,  this preserves the integrity of each individual breed and goes back generations...of utmost importance for breeding and showing...

    for owners of dogs ineligible, crossbreeds, mutts, parents having no papers, their consolation lies in their dogs affections all most sincerely loved. purebred or not.

    No.  When you cross breed two different breeds, it becomes a mutt.

    No.   In order for puppies to be purebred, the parents have to be purebred dogs of the same breed.

    The result in your scenario is a mutt.

    No, not a hybrid. A hybrid is a result of crossing different SPECIES.

    If we accept that Golden Retriever is a different breed from Labrador Retriever then the puppies would be a Retriever hybrid of Golden and Labrador.

    The question is only about drawing lines between similar breeds.

    I had a Border Collie/Black Lab hybrid. They are not a separate breed and do vary in exact appearance but they were purposely bred as a hybrid, often called a Borador. Some associations accept Borador. When getting the best of both breeds it is an amazing pet.

    No. A purebred is only possible when the same pure breeds are bred together, ie Rottweiler x Rottweiler or golden retriever x golden retriever. 

    It’s like a homozygous red rose x homozygous red rose, you get a homozygous red rose. If you cross a homozygous red rose with a homozygous white rose, you get a pink rose which isn’t homozygous.   If you crooks a golden with a lab, you get a mix. It’s not 100% golden and it’s not 100% lab. To be considered a purebred, I think it’s needs upwards of 90% of the specific breed’s genetics.
