*OTHER HYBRIDS WILL BE ADDED AS REQUESTED BY BREEDERS.

The Pomeranian x Poodle hybrid has been renamed "Pom-A-Poo" due to popular demand. Papers with "Pooranian" will be reprinted as "Pom-A-Poo" as they are registered. Pooranian had been chosen in the beginning by an office staff member andnot by a breeder, but most breeders use the current name.

*The West Highland White Terrier x Yorkshire Terrier cross was erroneously renamed "Westshire Terrier" in 2003. The original name of Fourche Terrier was first used in 1978, and we have reverted to it for historical accuracy. All future litters will be named "Fourche Terrier." Fourche is pronounced Fush and rhymes with push.

+ Name changed due to conflict to another breed club name
++ Same hybrid name used for both Bulldog x Pug and Olde Bulldog x Pug
