Mixed dog breed with Vira-lata is the most common one

There are at least 400 breeds of dogs around the world. Popularly, any dog that is not a purebred is known as a "Vira-Lata". In fact, the correct nomenclature of a Vira-Lata is "Without Defined Breed (SRD)". This is the correct term to refer to a mixed dog, whose breeds we cannot recognize.

The Vira-latas are darlings here in Brazil, occupying a good part of the country's homes. Especially the Vira-lata Caramelo, which became so popular that it became a meme. The crossing of an SRD dog and a dog with Pedigree almost always results in beautiful and healthy puppies, as the chances of the litter inheriting some hereditary condition of the breed dog are lower. In fact, Vira-latas also haveless chance of developing a health problem.
