The Sims 4 Pets: Cats and Dogs DLC
Making a Mixed Breed
To create a mixed breed in The Sims 4 Cats and Dogs, enter the create-a-household screen, which doubles as create-a-pet. In the bottom left, where you add Sims to the household, select 'Add a Pet'. Rather than select, 'create a dog' or 'create a cat' pick the 'make a mixed breed' button. You can also create a pet as usual, select the breed and pick 'open breed mixer' at the bottom of the breed selection catalog.
A new screen will come up that allows you to select the two dogs or cats you'll combine. Pick dog or cat at the top. It doesn't matter which is in the mother or father box, because the results are entirely random. Thankfully, if the first combination of breeds is not to your liking, you can elect to use the randomize button at the bottom until you get what you think the result should look like.
Create-a-Pet will let you make combos that are unlikely or rare in reality, such as this Rotthuahua!
It can be further tuned from there once it's added, by modifying the pet like you would any other animal. This is mainly to get the shape of the pet looking how you'd prefer. The system is not perfectly predictable in that it won't give results that you might expect (given the infinite combos of mixed breeds out there) but it's quite flexible and can give pretty great results if you're willing to click randomize a bit.

This fur looks a little better for my rotthuahua, but I could have made it a German rotthuahua.
As nothing is ever going to be exactly how you'd want, you can now click the animal directly and pick furs until you're happy with the mixed breed's look. The fur of nearly every type of dog is available under the furs option, so you can certainly make your rottweiler-chihuahua have a husky-colored fur if you like.
Going one step further, if you made a mixed breed, then go into the make a mix system a second time, it will let you pick a member of the household for the mother/father box. You could do this twice to make dogs that have 1/4 parts of various breeds, to get a result that looks much more uh, mixed. You can then delete the parents from the household by hovering over their icon in the bottom left once you're done, allowing you to use the genetics without keeping the pet.
When you're happy with the look, select three Pet Traits and name your companion.
