"This is Benji, a Lhasa Apso / Petit Basset Griffon Vedeen mix. He has three cream colored spots on his back and when his hair is cut short it is rather curly and corse, but can grow out long."
The Lhasa Vendeen is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen and the Lhasa Apso. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
