Mixed Breed

A mixed breed is a domesticated animal descended from multiple breeds of the same species, often breeding without any human intervention, recordkeeping, or selective breeding. In contrast, crossbreed is where the animal's parentage is deliberately selected by humans, and hybrid is a mix between species.

Famous quotes containing the words breed and/or mixed:

    Not from this anger after
    Refusal struck like a bell under water
    Shall her smile breed that mouth, behind the mirror,
    That burns along my eyes.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    A ‘spasm band’ is a miscellaneous collection of a soap box, tin cans, pan tops, nails, drumsticks, and little Negro boys. When mixed in the proper proportions this results in the wildest shuffle dancing, accompanied by a bumping rhythm.
