Dogs are probably one of the most diverse-looking species on the planet.

The debate over whether mutts or purebreds are better is an interesting one. Purebreds have a predictable set of characteristics like size, color and/or temperament that ensures that you know, more or less, what your puppy will grow into. However, purebreds are usually far more susceptible to genetic diseases. Mutts tend to be healthier in this respect, but they can have behavioral problems (especially if they’ve been adopted). Also, if you get a mutt puppy, you may have no idea how big that dog will get – 20 lbs or 50.
