We've completed the top ten most-popular poodle-mixes. I don't know about you, bur I think everyone of these little is cuties are adorable.
After all, Poodles are the dogs we love to love!
5. Schnoodle = Poodle + Schnauzer crossbreed
If you want a dog that is a lap dog and an excellent jogging companion the Schnoodle is the dog you’re looking. From its Schnauzer parent side, the dog is very sturdy, unlike some lap dogs. Loyal, fun, smart and affectionate the dog tends to be independent and stubborn sometimes. The coat of the Schnoodle requires some maintenance like trimming and grooming. Expect the dog to be an avid digger, and it has a tendency to hold blankets along with toys with its front paws like hands.
6. Peekapoo = Poodle + Pekingese
Along with the Cockapoo, this was one of the mixed Poodle breeds that during the 1950s and 60s. However the Peekapoo has not been given much attention like the Cockapoo, but for the last five decades, the breed has gotten enough notice. It is not an uncommon thing for a small mixed dog breed to excel in being a watchdog, but the Peekapoo does that job. If the dog sees a person it thinks is suspicious, it will bark loud.
7. Yorkipoo = Poodle + Yorkshire Terrier
This dog is the kind of dog that enjoys physical activities such as obedience and agility competitions. The Yorkipoo is good at performing tricks for the benefit of its owner and visitors. Possessing boundless love and energy the Yorkipoo with its low-dander, the low-shedding coat is the ideal lap dog for people of all ages. Like other mixed Poodle breeds, the Yorkipoo excels at training but be sure to use positive reinforcement on the dog and avoid any harsh methods of training it.
8. Pomapoo = Poodle + Pomeranian
11. Poochon = Poodle + Bichon Frise
Whether your home is in the suburbs with a big backyard or a small apartment; the Shihpoo will fit it in all of them. This delightful, fun-loving dog likes to play with its family or run around the home as a means of exercise. Though the dog can be stubborn, it has the gift of cheering up people especially those who are sad. Despite having a Shih Tzu in its parentage, the Shihpoo’s hair is moderately long.
10. Chipoo = Poodle + Chihuahua
A small outgoing, healthy dog that gets along with kids and has a coat that does not shed is the goal of dog breeders. Thanks to the efforts of Melbourne’s Chevromist Kennels during the 1990s the Poochon was produced. Unlike other Poodle breeds the Poochon’s hair does not shed, though some grooming and trimming are necessary. Households with children or other pets are no hindrance to the dog. The cute and lovable Poochon requires half an hour or more of exercise daily to keep it healthy.
12. Doxiepoo = Poodle + Dachshund
Surprisingly the dog has other names like Dachshunddoodle, Doxiedoodle, and Dachshundpoo.
However, the name Doxiepoo is the name preferred by dog lovers since it pronunciation is shorter. Most mixed Poodle breeds inherit 50/50 of their parents’ traits and characteristics. The Doxiepoo is one of those dogs that take more traits and characteristics from one parent. If the dog is mostly Poodle, it possesses a hypoallergenic coat and is a dog that is intelligent making its training easier. On the other hand, if the dog takes more from its Dachshund parent the fur it possesses is short making grooming an easy task. Additionally, its frame is lower and longer.
So many mixed Poodle breeds to choose from and all you need is one. It’s true that these breeds have the usual health problems, but don’t let it discourage you. These problems are treatable and can be prevented with proper care. Ultimately the mixed breed Poodle that you are going to choose depends on your personal preferences and current situation. Just remember to give your adorable pet the love and care that it needs.
Thank you for the messages about little Chanel. She is much improved (ten days of antibiotics and cough syrup). She is playing with her favorite puzzle toys and shadowing me after her naps.
Happy Poodle Sunday, 🐩
