Is your pooch a purebred or a purebred descendent?  Chances are, if you own a designer dog your pooche’s family tree can give you clues into his/her canine heritage.  Did you know that nearly half of all domesticated dogs are mutts?  The American Canine Hybrid Club recognizes 615 designer breeds.  So how do you get a Pugalier? Or even a Morkie?  Celebrities such as Jessica Simpson, Ashley Judd and Jake Gyllenhaal have all contributed to the popularity of designer dogs as proud owners of some of the trendiest dogs around. If you’ve ever wondered about the origins of designer dogs and how they evolved the following infographic  from Time magazine explains just that.
