Mansell the Clumber Spaniel / Bullmastiff mix as a puppy—"Mansell was adopted from a humane society at 8-weeks-old. He's rather lazy (we'll just say he likes to sleep) and has quite the stubborn pout when he gets in trouble (which last all of 2 minutes). He's also all love and INCREDIBLY smart. He is training extremely easily. Within 6 days of adopting him he had learned "sit", "down", "come", "stay", and "drop it". Now, a day from his 2 week adoption anniversary, he can also "leave it", heels almost perfectly by default, waits patiently to be fed, and is working on training WITHOUT treats (this is a hard one). I call him my Clumberstiff... a drooly, gassy, snoring, snorting bundle of happiness. FYI, so many teenage girls have taken selfies with this dog, I think he may be internet famous."
The Clumberstiff is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Clumber Spaniel and the Bullmastiff. 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.
