You’ll be excited to hear there are a lot of new real life breeds introduced in The Sims 4 for Cats and Dogs. Because it’s such a rich list you have the option to search your favorite breed through the search bar in Create a Pet. Every breed has their own traits that will automatically be set as the traits or your pet. You can change these if you like. Some breeds come in different color combinations to choose from. If you want to mix breeds you can select the breed mixer on the bottom. This will open up 2 spaces to add the breeds from the list above. Click the randomizer to make different combinations between those two breeds.

Mixed Breeds & Randomizer
This extra option gives the players a possibility to mix different breeds. You can select 2 different breeds of your pet. It will automatically generate a mixed breed. If you’re not happy with it you can click the randomizer multiple times to create a different outcome of those breeds. I tested it numerous times and after clicking 20 times on that button it keeps giving different outcomes each time.
