Interspecies Sex Between A Tiger and A Lion

I never knew before that there is interspecies sex betwen a tiger and a lion that can produce offspring.

I've already heard before about the mule that is the offspring resulting from the breeding of a male donkey and a female horse. But about Ligers (lion + tiger) or  Tigons/Tiglons (tiger + lion), I just found out now. I think this is a pretty great thing, although this may only occur in captivity.

If a male tiger mating with a lioness (a female lion), they will be able to produce offspring called Tigons.

And what if a Dog mating with A Tiger,  can you image what their offspring might look?  And would be called what??
