Goldendoodle

Furry friends come in all shapes and sizes, and cross-bred puppies have a special charm. From pomchis to goldendoodles, dogs of multiple breeds often combine the most preferable qualities of specific breeds - but which one is the favorite?

To find out, we calculated the average user rating on PetBreeds, ranging from one to five, and the total number of reviews for each mixed-breed dog breed on our site, filtering out those with fewer than five reviews. With those two data points, we determined an overall score out of 100 for each breed. Finally, we ranked them from lowest to highest scores.
