There are sometimes different definitions of pedigree, crossbreeds and mongrels.

  • For us, a pedigree pet is when your pet’s parents are both from the same breed (also known as purebred).
  • Crossbreeds are when your pet is a combination between 2 different breeds.
  • A mongrel and a moggie do not belong to one officially recognised breed and results from the crossing of different breeds or types (also referred to as a mixed breed).

Please be aware that any excluded breed also includes any crossbreed of that breed type. There are a number of specifc breeds that we aren’t able to cover. You can see the full list here. Please note that if you have declared the incorrect breed when taking the policy out, you may not be covered when making a claim.
