You would get mutts, no predictability as to what they would look like, or act like.

As to natural mating: never say never. If the dam is the larger of the two animals, there should be no problem with the pregnancy beyond the resulting weirdness of the X-breed puppies.

On the plus side, if you had a Great Dane with a Jack Russell's temperament, you could rent him out for excavating in-ground swimming pools.

Ask yourself this. Would you want to push out something from your body that's even half your size. Why put a dog through hell just to have a puppy that you have no idea what it would look like.

Well, what if the bigger one was the female, and the smaller one was the male??

Yes, they can mate, in fact they can do so naturally. HOWEVER it would be irresponsible to do so. Add to that the fact that NO reproductive specialist (or any other vet) that is ethical will do the AI. There is no guarantee of size or temperament or of good health as the pup could inherit the problems of BOTH breeds (hybrid vigor is a MYTH)

Why would you want to do this? Would you really want to know as a BYB of mutts?

Ha! I'm a former Petz freak here! I LOVE that game! (Only through Petz 5 though, because after that Ubi Soft ruined it)

Agreed. Now I must spend 2 hours installing Dogz 5 on my desktop so I can go make some chi-danes.

we at one point when i was younger had an unneutered husky that mated with a 'spayed' basset mix(the spca gave us papers saying she was spayed) we ended up with odd looking puppies...just picture huskies with legs like a basset hound but with the body size of a husky...odd looking lil critters

This is a disturbing and, hopefully, hypothetical line of questioning, not unlike the one that went through my head when a met a pair of Olympic medalists that had married.

He was a shot-putter and she was a gymnist.

(On the off-hand chance that they are dog-lovers and reading this thread, I thought they made a lovely couple.)

I believe there was a case of a very determined Chihuahua mating a female Great Dane. If I remember correctly, the puppies died soon after birth.....really, the genetic oddity of mixing such a large dog with such a small dog will probably always end that way.
