Different poodle mix beeds "doodles"

Updated: Nov 3, 2021

There are many different varieties of Doodles, some of which are tougher to acquire than others. The following Poodle hybrids are a blend of well-known and unusual breeds.

People can choose a broad range of doodle sizes, from little Goldendoodles to the regular Cockapoo and the bigger, gentle-giant Newfypoo, because poodles come in three conventional sizes. These breeds are often low- to non-shedding, making them a good choice for most allergy sufferers.

Another thing that readers should consider is how the doodle was created. The term "generation" relates to how far a dog is from a purebred pair, such as a purebred Poodle and a purebred Labrador. "The puppy will most certainly have significant personality features from both breeds,". "However, if a puppy is an F2 [both parents are doodles] or F3 (grandparents are doodles), the distinct breed characteristics are less clear or evident."

We look at the finest poodle mixes for just about any household in the thorough guide below, as well as what you can anticipate from bringing one into your home.

Are doodles hypoallergenic?

Poodle Mix pups are frequently advertised as hypoallergenic and/or non-shedding due to the presence of Poodle genes. While this may be true, the unpredictability of heredity means that no dog or litter of puppies can be guaranteed to be hypoallergenic. Certain breeds are more susceptible to allergies in certain people than others.

As a general rule, the higher the amount of Poodle in a dog's pedigree, the more hypoallergenic or non-shedding they are. An F1BB Doodle (87.5 percent Poodle) is more hypoallergenic than an F1B Doodle (75 percent Poodle), which is more hypoallergenic than an F1 or F2 Doodle (50 percent Poodle).


  • Size-Toy poodle 6-9lb

  • Miniature Poodle 12-20lb

  • Standard poodle 45-75lb

  • Lifespan- 12-15 years

Poodles are amazing canines who frequently win best-in-show awards in many types of competitions. They are available in three sizes, ranging from 20 inches to 7 inches. Any dog lover will recognize their long necks, straight backs, short tails, and big legs. They are of German origin and date back to the 1800s, despite their association with France. Poodles are recognized for their intelligence and ease of training.

Poodles are energetic, fun-loving, and active canines who thrive on being the centre of attention. These appealing characteristics explain why so many breeders cross with Poodle. Poodle mixes, often known as Doodles, have been the most popular crossbreed for pet owners in the previous 15 years.


  • Breed- Cocker spaniel and poodle

  • Size- 13-20lb

  • Lifespan- 13-15 years

This small Doodle is a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. The Cockapoo, which dates back to the 1950s, is one of the first Doodle mixes to develop. They need a lot of engagement and attention.

Families love them because of their tiny size and smooth fur. They are well-socialized, get along well with other dogs and cats, and like smelling and chasing whatever they come across. It's critical to engage in a lot of playtime with your Cockapoo in order to release their pent-up energy. Cockapoos are prone to blindness and dementia as they age, although they live long and healthy lives for the most part.

Cockapoos are fluffy and nonshedding which means you will have to groom your dog. We hope that you found some inspiration for the best types of Cockapoo haircuts. Remember, no matter what style you choose, your Cockapoo will look amazing!


  • Breed- Chihuahua, and Poodle

  • Size- 4-10lb

  • Lifespan- 12-15 yaers

This newer breed is a cross between a toy Poodle and a Chihuahua, and is one of several chihuahua mix breeds. The Chipoo, like the Chihuahua, has a big personality and a lot of heart. They have a lot of energy, love to play, and interact, but they need a lot of training to get rid of their stubbornness and loudness.

Chipoos are amiable canines who need a lot of socialization before they can be comfortable with larger dogs. They can still be aggressive if provoked, but brushing and petting them on a regular basis can make them feel more at ease.

To keep them from becoming bored, they require at least an hour of playing and exercise each day. Prepare to hear a lot of wailing and barking!


  • Breed- jack Russell and Poodle

  • Size- 13-20lb

  • Lifespan- 12-15 years

The Jackapoo is one of the most popular Jack Russell crossbreeds, combining the Jack Russell Terrier with the Poodle. A Toy Poodle or a smaller Standard Poodle is usually the parent of a Jackapoo. One of the brightest canine breeds is the Jack Russell Terrier. They have a high level of intelligence and are quick to pick up new commands. The Jack Russell is the ideal breed to match with a Poodle because of their reputation as a wonderful family friend and their higher Intelligence.

Jackapoos are tiny canines that seldom reach weights of more than 13-20 pounds. They'll probably have a mixed coat colour, which is a blend of both parent breeds. This implies they'll come in a variety of colors, including white, brown, black, tri-colored, and even spotted. Jackapoos make excellent family dogs and adapt well to families with many pets.


  • Breed- Schnauzer and Poodle

  • Size- 7-17lb

  • Lifespan- 10-18years

The Schnoodle is a crossbreed between a Schnauzer and a Poodle. It takes several generations to attain the ideal mix, so breeding one purebred parent of each won't guarantee a Schnoodle. The Schnoodle's fluffy coat is a well-balanced mix of wavy and very silky.

Because of the rigorous breeding that goes into creating the "ideal" dog, it's difficult to pin down a Schnoodle's overall temperament. They are often non-aggressive and do not require much socializing at a young age.

They are very loyal to their owners and require a lot of space to leap and play. They require a large garden.


  • Breed- Yorkshire terrier and Poodle.

  • Size- 3-14lb

  • Lifespan- 10-15 years

This well-known Poodle hybrid is a cross between a Yorkie and a Poodle. They're a boisterous breed that requires a lot of attention and early training. Yorkipoos have a disposition and activity level similar to that of most other small dogs.

Yorkipoos are a breed with a lot of personality and live for a long time. If you don't socialize them while they're pups, you could have behavior problems later on. They are still highly active sociable dogs that enjoy being petted, but their Yorkie heritage might cause them to be aloof.

Their coats range from wavy to straight, and diverse fur means various grooming needs.


  • Breed- Pekingese and Poodle.

  • Size- 4-20lb

  • Lifespan- 10-15 years

Peekapoos are a cross between a Poodle and a Pekingese. Because they don't have an undercoat, they're easy to clean and brush, and they're quite affectionate. They do, however, have too many health problems.

Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome affects Pekingese. This is subsequently passed on to the Peekapoo, causing them to struggle to breathe. There is no treatment, therefore they will suffer from difficult breathing, discomfort, and inability to withstand high temperatures for the rest of their lives.

You'll need to be well-versed on medical matters, and they're not great with kids. Unfortunately, their bodies work against them in nearly every way.


  • Breed- Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Poodle

  • Size- 9-25lb

  • Lifespan- 12-15 years

The cavapoo is a magnificent poodle hybrid that mixes the Poodle with the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They adore playing fetch and running, but most of all, they appreciate your company! They are frequently confused with the Cavachon.

They are simple to care for and play with, weighing less than 25 pounds, but training can be challenging due to their more demanding nature – Cavapoos require some grooming to stay clean.

Cavapoos are prone to separation anxiety and have a hard time being left alone. They prefer bigger families that can provide them with the care and entertainment they require, but given their attractiveness, we're confident they'll find plenty of affection


  • Breed- Golden retriever and Poodle

  • Size- 15-80lb+

  • Lifespan- 10-15 years

These gorgeous poodle mixes, which may weigh up to 80 pounds, are another popular poodle hybrid. Goldendoodles in miniature might weigh as little as 15 pounds. This Goldendoodle does not shed and has to be groomed on a regular basis to maintain its coat.

Goldendoodles are high-energy dogs who want to live in homes with a spacious garden where they can run around and play. Puppies will have difficulty playing with children since they frequently leap and knock them down. They just do not recognize their own power!

While they are generally healthy, they do have hip and joint problems. It's essential to provide them with the right nutrition as well as hip and joint supplements to reduce their chances of developing them. To make the tiny version of the Goldendoodle, Goldens are occasionally combined with the Toy Poodles.


  • Breed- Labrador and Poodle.

  • Size- 30-65lb

  • Lifespan- 12-16 years

The Labradoodle is the most well-known and, in my opinion, one of the greatest poodle combinations ever. Labradoodles are loving and like being petted. They also don't mind displaying it by physically jumping on you or slapping your hand in exchange for a pet. Their short fur makes maintenance easier, but they still need to be groomed on a regular basis to avoid matting. If you  Brush them, they may need to take a bath. Bathing will be simple for Labradoodles because they like being in the water.

They are high-energy dogs who should be walked once a day. Make sure to take them outside and play fetch with them, as well as encourage them for learning a new trick.


  • Breed- Bichon frise and Poodle

  • Size- 6-17lb

  • Lifespan- 12-15 years

The Poochon (also known as a Doodle Frise, Bidoodle, or Bichoodle) is a cross between a Bichon Frise and a Poodle. They're energetic tiny balls of fun who enjoy being hugged and held. Despite the fact that they can be jumpers, their small stature and large personality make them ideal for youngsters and small spaces.

They have a high level of vocalization and like barking, whining, and whimpering. They are also prone to separation anxiety. Potty training is difficult for them, as it is for other little breeds, because to their small bladders. They're also more prone to pee out of worry.

Nonetheless, they are a non-aggressive breed that simply wants to lick you to death in order to adore you. They're fantastic lap dogs! Just keep goodies out of reach during training, since they may quickly gain weight.


  • Breed- Maltese and Poodle

  • Size- 5-20lb

  • Lifespan- 10-15 years

The Maltese and Poodle combination is an excellent choice for people who live in tiny houses or apartments. They travel well, adapt well to new situations, and have few, if any, aggressiveness issues as a result. They are a wonderful companion to everybody. Because the Maltipoo and the ordinary Maltese are so similar in appearance, they are sometimes mistaken.

Keep in mind that Maltipoos take a great deal of care, and this cannot be overstated. They are sociable, energetic dogs who cannot be left alone for lengthy periods of time. Keep them with you as much as possible since they like being with their pet parent.


  • Breed-Pug and Poodle

  • Lifespan- 12-16 years

The Pugapoo is a cross between a Pug and a Toy Poodle. Pugs are fairly prevalent in the designer dog industry, as they are the parents of a variety of combinations. The Pugapoo's coat will take on part of its Pug parent's colour, especially the black mask. They will shed considerably less than a Pug, who has more hair per square inch and sheds more than other breeds.

Pugapoos, regardless of gender, are tiny dogs that seldom grow more than 15 pounds. They are wonderful family pets and like spending time snuggled close to their owners. They are "shadow" dogs, meaning they will follow you almost wherever you go. If having a constant companion is something you're not ready for, the Pugapoo may not be the breed for you.


Springerdoodles are a crossbreed between a Springer Spaniel and a Poodle. Springerdoodles are a high-energy breed that makes a great hunting partner. They have the hunting abilities of their Springer Spaniel ancestor, but their shedding is decreased and gentler for individuals with allergies to pet dander.

Springerdoodles are often longer and slimmer in appearance. When fully grown, they are medium-sized dogs that should weigh no more than 40 to 50 pounds. Their coat colors will usually be more similar to their Springer Spaniel parents, with some spots. Their coats will have the texture and feel of their Poodle parent. Springerdoodles make great family pets and, if socialized early, get along with many other animals.


  • Breed- Old English Sheepdog and Poodle

  • Size- 65-85lb

  • Lifespan- 12-15 years

Unlike many other Poodle mixes, the Sheepadoodle has become so popular that dedicated Sheepadoodle breeders are springing up all across the United Kingdom. It's simple to understand why: they're just amazing.

The Sheepadoodle is a very clever and obedient dog who can learn whatever you throw at him. They may, however, act clownish and humorous, making them a fascinating companion.

Sheepadoodles are happy dogs with a good temperament. As a result, positive reinforcement is the most effective method of training them. The good news is that training will be simple for even inexperienced dog owners.


  • Breed- Lhasa Apso and Poodle.

  • Size- 10-15lb

  • Lifespan- 10-15 years

The Lhasapoo is a cross between a poodle and a Lhasa. It deserves more attention than it receives. They are bright, gentle, and lovable hybrids of the Lhasa Apso and the Poodle. They're one of the most versatile Poodle mixes out there!

If you keep them in an apartment, they will be content. They'll make use of it in a large fenced yard. They'll learn to be the finest family dog they can be, whether you're a single owner, a large family, or a couple.

The disadvantage is that they may be obstinate and independent at times, owing to the Lhasa parent. And, because they may be protective, don't be startled if they defend you by barking at strangers.
