A cross breed is just that, a cross of two breeds, now they can be f1 crosses or up to f4 crosses after which the cross breed is then considered pure. Look up Cavanaugh Bob tail Boxer for an example, a boxer x'd with corgie over generations to instill a natural bobtail gene, to negate tail docking.
