Poodles are among the top 10 most popular breeds in the United States, currently residing in the seventh slot. Their popularity, personality, and appearance have made it so they are among the most common dogs used to create hybrid or designer dogs. Breeding occurs with all the different varieties of Poodles, including Standard, Toy, and Miniature. Most Poodle mixes are referred to as “Doodles.”

We have compiled a list of the most common mixed breeds that you can get by mixing a Poodle.

The 48 Greatest Poodle Mixed Breeds

1. Cockapoo (Cocker Spaniel x Poodle Mix)

Image Credit: mountaintreks, Shutterstock

Although still considered a medium-sized dog, a Cocker Spaniel is smaller than others in this size range. The Cocker Spaniel, combined with the Poodle, became a Cockapoo and was one of the first Doodle hybrids from back in the 1950s.

These dogs top out at around 25 pounds and are lapdogs, excellent for a family with young kids. They are friendly dogs that get along with just about everything and everyone from a young age. They love to play around and have a good time.

These dogs are easily distracted and may need extra training to get them to listen well. They are also quite vocal, barking more than other larger dogs because they feel the need to draw attention. Their coats are soft and thick. They can have straight, wavy, or curly coats with brown, black, tan, golden, white, and mottled coloring.

2. Pomapoo (Pomeranian x Poodle Mix)

The Pomapoo is a combination of a Pomeranian and Poodle, two breeds that are popular among those who enjoy toy dogs. They are both friendly and positive pups, giving this hybrid the likelihood to be the same.

The Pomapoo typically is a dog that has more of a natural calmness about them and are often quite sociable. They are intelligent dogs that are easy to train and are often recommended for first-time dog owners.

Because of the influence of the Pomeranian in this dog’s gene pool, they tend to bond strongly with one member of their family in particular. They will still get along with everyone, though, and are good dogs for families.

3. Bernedoodle (Poodle x Bernese Mountain Dog Mix)

The Bernedoodle is an absolutely adorable dog that suits big dog lovers. They often combine the good looks of both their Poodle parent and the Bernese Mountain Dog. They typically have wavy hair that is about medium-length. They often take on the coloring of the Bernese Mountain Dog and have the blue eyes and brown eyebrows that go with that.

This hybrid Doodle can be a gentle but playful giant, depending on which type of Poodle they are crossed with. They inherit intelligence and loyalty from both of their parents and don’t feel intimidated in almost any social experience. Bernedoodles are also excellent pets for children because they gravitate toward them.

4. Akipoo (Akita Inu x Poodle Mix)

The Akita Inu and the Poodle combine to make the Akipoo. The Akipoo, unfortunately, is not one of the more common Poodle hybrids. They are incredibly adorable, though, and can be found if this seems like your perfect match in a canine companion.

Akita Inus are known for their courage and fierce loyalty. These traits carry right over into this mix and combine with the quirky, outgoing personality of the Poodle. They are smart and have an agile build. They tend to resemble the Akita Inu more closely, with a more pointed, alert face. Their ears can be erect or floppy, though.

Akipoos are typically fluffy and can have straight or wavy fur. Their coats are normally mostly black with tan and white markings, although this can be reversed depending on which parent is favored.

5. Cairnoodle (Poodle x Cairn Terrier)

The Cairnoodle is a mix between the Cairn Terrier and the Mini Poodle, taking two of the most popular lap dogs from the U.K. and the U.S. They make a great mix and nearly guarantee that your hybrid pup will have a hypoallergenic coat.

These little dogs are a blend of hunter and water retriever because the Cairn Terrier was meant as a hunter’s companion along the rocks and the Poodle is a water dog. They both have a work ethic and are intelligent, meaning they require plenty of mental stimulation so they don’t get bored.

6. Bolonoodle (Poodle x Bolognese)

Bolonoodles appear quite similar to how a tucked and trimmed Poodle looks on their own, although perhaps with even curlier hair. They are an adorable mixture of the Bolognese and the Mini or Toy Poodle.

The Bolognese has a much calmer personality than Poodles tend to have. Their combination makes for a tiny dog that is alert yet reserved. They like to have fun, but they have a good balance and behave quite well whenever they feel a situation requires it.

These little dogs tend to be hypoallergenic, even with all their mounds of curly hair. There is not much variety that shows up in the Bolonoodle hybrid.

7. Cavapoo (Poodle x Cavalier King Charles Spaniel)

Image Credit: Steven B Gold, Shutterstock

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Poodle combine to make one perfect teddy bear puppy. The Cavapoo enjoys playing around and is eager to learn, as long as it means getting to spend plenty of quality time with their family. They are prone to separation anxiety if left alone for too long.

This Doodle has the longer legs of the Poodle but has ears that are longer than a Poodle’s and fur that’s longer and softer. They are small, weighing up to 25 pounds at most. They can be intelligent and sometimes stubborn dogs.

The Cavapoo dog is often brown, tan, or golden with white markings. They have long, thick, and wavy fur. If the Cavalier parent was dual or tri-colored, the Cavapoo might be too, although such dogs are usually more expensive.

8. Whoodle (Poodle x Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier)

The Whoodle is a fun dog that matches their name. They are a blend between the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier and the Poodle. Breeders can use a variety of Poodle sizes when they hybridize the Whoodle, so these dogs can come in various sizes.

The combination of these two happy dogs makes for an energetic and playful breed that loves to spend active time with their family. They also make excellent guard dogs because of the influence of the Wheaten Terrier’s genetics.

Whoodles are not typically vocal unless they sense a danger that they want to alert their humans to. They do have a prey drive and need to be monitored closely when being introduced to other animals.

9. Bassetoodle (Poodle x Basset Hound)

Image Credit: Erik Lam, Shutterstock

The Bassetoodle is a cute mixture of the mopey Basset Hound and the Poodle. Their size depends on the kind of Poodle used while breeding, and they can also inherit various kinds of coats.

These two parent pups are among the most popular dogs from France. The Basset Hound has short, wiry fur that is not considered hypoallergenic. They have long ears and a long face. The Poodle has curly fur and a more pointed face, although their ears also droop.

More likely, your pup will have drooping ears with a medium-length face. They might inherit the elongated torso of the Basset Hound and the long legs of a Poodle. Their coat will also vary based on which parent they favor.

10. Chinese Crestepoo (Poodle x Chinese Crested)

The Chinese Crestepoo is an odd-looking dog that some people find incredibly endearing. They are a mix between the unique Chinese Crested pup and the Poodle. They are not one of the more common designer dogs because the Chinese Crested is not as popular of a purebred as many other dogs on the list.

The parent dogs have very different appearances, so these dogs often take on a unique mix of the two. They can have longer, wavy hair or short curly hair in patches. They might be brown, black, or white.

The attitude of these dogs tends to be cuddly with a side of activity. They are also frequently quite vocal.

11. Bossi-Poo (Poodle x Boston Terrier)

The Boston Terrier and the Poodle are bred together to make a Doodle known as the Bossi-Poo. The Bossi-Poo looks quite different from the typical Doodle because they generally favor the Boston Terrier in coat and color more than the Poodle.

Boston Terriers are brachycephalic, meaning that their snouts are shorter and much closer to their face. This facial structure makes it more challenging for them to breathe and eat. These health issues are why they are often bred with different dogs with a longer face, intending to breed these out of the new hybrid.

The Bossi-Poo accomplishes this goal. They are black and white dogs and can have soft, short fur or long, tufty fur. Their ears might be erect or floppy, depending on which parent they favor the most.

12. Poogle (Poodle x Beagle)

Image Credit: Kannittha, Shutterstock

The Poogle is a cross between the loving and playful Beagle and the equally as playful and intelligent Poodle. They are an affectionate breed with seemingly boundless energy. The Poogle makes an excellent family pet.

These dogs often do quite well with other animals, particularly other dogs. Be careful when introducing them to smaller animals because they do inherit a prey drive from their Beagle parent.

Poogles can inherit a variety of looks from their parents and will often come out as a mixture between the two. They can have muted colorings from the Beagle and have medium-length, wavy fur.

13. Corgipoo (Poodle x Corgi)

Image Credit: JLSnader, Shutterstock

The Corgipoo is an adorable mixed breed dog, combining the Welsh Corgi and the Poodle. They are very different in size, body shape, and coat composition, so this hybrid mixture can come with many different looks.

The Corgipoo will always inherit the short, stubby legs from their Corgi parent because it is a dominant trait. Most people find this feature adorable. They tend to inherit the curly coats from Poodles but can also end up with more of a fuzzy mix.

Corgipoos can exhibit stubbornness because they inherit this trait, along with high intelligence, from both parents. That makes them a poor match for unwitting first-time dog owners.

14. Boxerdoodle (Poodle x Boxer)

The Boxerdoodle is an interesting mix between a Boxer and a Poodle. They often end up looking quite similar to a Golden Retriever or a Yellow Labrador. They combine many of the best traits of a Boxer with a Poodle even though these dogs tend to have opposing personalities.

The Boxerdoodle is quite courageous and athletic. Watch out for any aggressive tendencies or displays of territorial behavior. A Poodle brings their good manners into the mix, so it is a throw of the dice exactly what temperament you can expect from your Boxerdoodle.

15. Maltipoo (Poodle x Maltese)

Image Credit: maltipoo, Shutterstock

The Maltipoo is included among the most popular Doodle mixes currently available. They are a cross between Maltese and Poodles. Maltipoos are the smallest Doodle and thus are adaptable to many different lifestyles and living conditions. It helps that they are also absolutely adorable.

The Maltipoo is the perfect size to travel well and fits into apartments, even with an entire family living there. They are not aggressive dogs but do like to be vocal, especially if they don’t get the proper training. They are needy, always requiring attention and suffering from anxiety if they are separated from their family for too long.

A Maltipoo has wavy or curly hair, like the Poodle. Their coat can be a variety of colors, such as cream, white, grey, tan, or golden. They need a great deal of stimulation to stay happy and may require grooming.

16. Poo-Ton (Poodle x Coton de Tulear)

The Poo-Ton is a cute combination of the Coton de Tulear and the Poodle. Both of these dogs are generally regarded as good-looking breeds that most people find appealing. They can also be called the Cotonpoo.

Even though they come in an adorable package, don’t let them fool you. They couple it with a high level of intelligence and tons of energy. They don’t have to work hard to steal your heart, and they desire to be the best companion that they can be.

Both of these dogs have a history of being show animals at some point in their past. That means when you adopt a Poo-Ton, you are adopting a dog that will consistently steal the spotlight.

17. Peekapoo (Poodle x Pekingese)

Peekapoo Pekingese Poodle dog

The Peekapoo is not only a charming dog, but they also have an adorable name. They are the mixture of a Pekingese with a Toy Poodle and are a small dog.

Both the Poodle and the Pekingese know what it’s like to be spoiled and will practically demand it from their owners with their disarming personalities. They are loyal dogs and will do whatever it takes to protect their loved ones, even if it is too much at times. They are jealous pups, so take your time when introducing them to new pets.

18. Pyredoodle (Poodle x Great Pyrenees)


Pyredoodles were developed from hybridizing the Great Pyrenees and the Poodle. These dogs are big and fluffy, almost always appearing to smile. The Great Pyrenees is thought to be a giant dog breed, and when they are bred with a Standard Poodle, the hybrid stays large, topping out at over 100 pounds. The good thing is that their heart is just as big as they are.

The Pyredoodles can also be called the Pyreneespoo, the Pyreneesdoodle, or the Pyrepoo. They are surprisingly a more common hybrid. That means if you are looking for one, check out your local shelter because there is a shot that they might be there.

They are adaptable to different living situations, but they do need quite a bit of exercise to keep content. They love children and can display overprotective qualities if they feel like they are being threatened. They often inherit the color of the Great Pyrenees, a stark white, and have long, wavy fur.

19. Froodle (Poodle x French Bulldog)

With a name that may remind many people of a “Lord of the Rings” character, the Froodle has become an astonishingly popular hybrid dog. They have even been recently recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club.

Most of their popularity as a hybrid is due to the more recent explosion in the popularity of their parent pup, the French Bulldog. They tend to mimic the appearance of the Frenchie more than their Poodle counterpart.

These dogs are a great addition to a family because they are friendly and sociable. They are adaptable and intelligent but still need plenty of love to stay happy.

20. Shihpoo (Poodle x Shih Tzu)

Shih Poo

The Shihpoo is a combination of the beloved Shih-Tzu and the Toy Poodle. They are popular Doodle hybrids because the Shih-Tzu is such a beloved family pet.

The Shihpoo is a well-mannered dog with a sort of elegance and charm surrounding their tiny personas. They are cuddly and get along well with almost any animal, dog, rodent, and cat. Although Shihpoos are great choices for a family, they are also small and can be hurt if not played with gently by younger children.

21. Sheepadoodle (Poodle x Old English Sheepdog)

Image Credit: Logan Swenson, Shutterstock

To contrast a few of the more common mixes, there is the Sheepadoodle. Although the name sounds a little like a rooster crowing, it is a hybrid mix of an Old English Sheepdog and a Poodle.

The Sheepadoodle is a larger dog breed, although any Doodle can be bred with a smaller Poodle to make a tinier version. They are friendly and love children. If they are socialized well, they behave well with other dogs. They might have herding urges, depending on which parent their personality favors. These pups don’t adapt well to apartment living.

The Sheepadoodle often looks much like the Sheepdog. Instead of having a curly coat like other Doodles do, they have straight to wavy fur and are almost always black and white, with mottled variations between the two colors.

22. Doodleman (Poodle x Doberman Pinscher)

A Doodleman is a unique mixture of a Doberman Pinscher and a Poodle. They are sometimes considered an unlikely hybrid and can be difficult to find. Often, this cross is done with a Standard Poodle, and the result is a blend in the shapes of the Poodle and the Doberman.

Normally, the coat of these dogs is a blend of the two as well. They have medium-length fur with a slight wave to it instead of the extremely short coat of the Doberman or the curly fur of the Poodle.

This hybrid often ends up being a large breed dog and inherits the black coat of the Doberman. They are loyal dogs and are ever on the alert, making them fantastic guard dogs for a family.

23. Chipoo (Poodle x Chihuahua Mix)

A Chipoo is a cross between a Poodle and a Chihuahua. For as many Poodle mixes that we have developed over the last decades, the Chihuahua has an accompanying number of hybrid crosses. They are some of the most popular dogs in North America and are used in a vast amount of designer dog mixes.

Typically, the Toy Poodle is combined with a Chihuahua. They can end up being vocal dogs and are often full of energy. They are playful and like to do their own thing. That attitude combined with their intelligence frequently makes them quite stubborn.

24. Papipoo (Papillon x Poodle Mix)


The Papipoo is a pup that has a sweet face and long flowing ears. They are often all white and grey, although there can be some brown in the mix.

The Papipoo is a cross between a Papillon and a Toy Poodle. They are highly intelligent and emotionally sensitive dogs. Their low activity requirements and easily maintained coat with weekly brushing make them low maintenance.

Papipoos are good dogs for seniors or smaller families with older kids. They are quite delicate and should be treated carefully during playtime.

25. Goldendoodle (Poodle x Golden Retriever)

Double Doodle (Goldendoodle and Labradoodle Mix) Dog Breed Info

The mix of a Golden Retriever and a Poodle is called a Goldendoodle. Both the Golden Retriever and the Poodle are extremely popular, so of course, their combination is too. This Doodle has a wonderful character: calm but fun-loving. Their eyes speak to their intelligence, and they range from 10 pounds to 80, depending on the Poodle variety.

These dogs don’t shed, so they need extensive grooming to keep their coat healthy and clean. Typically, mixed breeds are not recognized as their own breed. However, the Goldendoodle has become so prolific and popular that they are beginning to be recognized as their own. They make great family pets, although they may need extra training.

Goldendoodles inherit the wavy or curly hair from the Poodle but are often a shade closer to their Golden Retriever parent. Be sure to inquire after the Poodle variety from the breeder when investing in these pups so you will know how big they will get.

26. Affenpoo (Poodle x Affenpinscher)

The Affenpoo is an interesting mix of an Affenpinscher with a Toy Poodle. They often look more like a darkly-colored Maltese mix. However, their personality is a winning combination of the two parents.

Affenpoos love to have fun and are always cheerful. They make wonderful companions for children because they love to play around and don’t take too long before tiring out. They are a small breed, though, so handle them with a bit of care.

Affenpoos have coats that shed very little and both of their parents have coats that are relatively curly. The likelihood is that they will inherit curly or wavy fur and be relatively hypoallergenic.

27. Poochon (Poodle x Bichon Frise)

A Poochon is an uber-fuzzy pup covered in bright white fur that they inherit from both parents. They are a mix between a Bichon Frise and a Poodle. Depending on what kind of Poodle the breed uses, the size of these dogs can vary dramatically.

The Poochon is a smart dog because they inherit plenty of intelligence from both parents. They are called Velcro dogs by some because they stick to their favorite owners like Velcro. They can be quite vocal, especially if they are bored or feeling lonely.

Although Poochons might be small, they still need plenty of exercise. Giving them exercise can also keep them quieter. They are often wary of strangers, making them a good choice for a watchdog as well.

28. Pugapoo (Poodle x Pug)

Image Credit: Brook Robinson, Shutterstock

The Pugapoo is one of those Poodle mixes that may not appeal to most people looking for a Doodle. The Pug and the Poodle are different dogs, both in appearance and in overall attitude. However, their combination does make a surprisingly good mix most of the time.

The Pug parent brings in a goofy vivaciousness, while the Poodle parent is graceful and prideful. With their combination, the Pugapoo ends up being more reserved while still being able to enjoy a doggy joke.

The Pugapoo gets along well in a variety of family scenarios. Because they are normally crossed with a Poodle, they work well in an apartment.

29. Labradoodle (Poodle x Labrador Retriever)

A Labradoodle is a mix of a Labrador and a Poodle. They look like a Golden Retriever and a Poodle but have a bit of a different personality. They can be highly energetic dogs, as well as playful and social. They like to be around people as much as possible.

The Labradoodle was initially bred in Australia to be a guide dog for those with disabilities. They are a gorgeous mix and quite smart, with more obedience bred into them than other Doodles. They are an adaptable breed and can be a variety of sizes.

This Doodle has a wide variety of color patterns, although the texture of the coat is similar to the Poodle, wavy or curly. The typical colors include chocolate, white, black, tan, cream, or multicolored.

30. Eskipoo (Poodle x American Eskimo)

Image Credit: Zeljka, Shutterstock

The American Eskimo Dog and the Poodle combine to create an absolutely adorable mixed breed called the Eskipoo. They often look like a Pomapoo, although they can also be black and white instead of shades of beige.

The Eskipoo is fluffy and sheds more than some of the other mixes. Their size depends on the kind of Poodle used in breeding. Be ready for a dog with boundless energy and an exaggerated excitement for life that can sometimes be expressed vocally.

31. Doxiepoo (Poodle x Dachshund)


The adorable Doxiepoo is a mix between the Dachshund and a Poodle. Typically, they are crossed with a Mini or Toy sized Poodle because Dachshunds are quite small. They often inherit the short legs and elongated body of the Dachshund because it is a dominant trait.

These dogs can inherit stubbornness from both of their parents. They are also known for being incredibly loving and having perky personalities that bring laughter and love into a household. They are guaranteed to be fun for their families.

32. Huskypoo (Poodle x Husky)

A Siberian Husky mixed with a Poodle is called a Huskypoo and is one of the more energetic on the list. The Siberian Husky requires a great deal of maintenance because their activity needs are so high. Although the Poodle side can balance it out a bit, expect to still spend plenty of time outdoors with this hybrid.

Huskypoos can also be called Huskydoodles or Siberpoos. They do not resemble their Husky parents often, instead favoring the body type and coat of the Poodle. At times, they will have the pointy ears of their wolfish side, but otherwise, they look more like an energetic Poodle than a mixed breed.

33. Yorkiepoo (Poodle x Yorkshire Terrier)

Image Credit: Thecheapshot, Pixabay

The Yorkiepoo is a combination of a Yorkshire Terrier and a Poodle. They are one of the more common pups among the toy mixes. The mix can be quite a handful, a bit rowdy and vocal yet loving and protective. They need consistent training to behave appropriately.

Yorkie dogs are known to be one of the yappiest dogs out there, helping to give small dog breeds the reputation of being shrill and loud. They need a great deal of training as young as possible to curb this tendency. Yorkiepoos have a large amount of energy and love to play around. It is best to have one of these dogs if you already have other dogs or plan on getting more than one.

Their coat varies depending on the parent that they favor. Either way, they will need grooming and extra attention around their eyes and mouth. They are often black and tan but can also be cream, white, or brown.

34. Jack-A-Poo (Poodle x Jack Russell Terrier)

The Jack-A-Poo is not a common Doodle dog and is one of the newer design dog mixes with a Poodle. They can look a bit odd, combining the curly, soft fur of a Poodle with the wiry trim of the Jack Russell Terrier.

This mix does not yet have any kind of standard for their temperament or appearance. They tend to be loving and highly intelligent. They do not shed much nor need too much grooming.

35. Irish Doodle (Poodle x Irish Setter)

Irish Doodle Dog Breed

The Irish Doodle is a wonderful designer dog mixed with an Irish Setter and a Poodle. Their size depends on the Poodle parent. They typically inherit the reddish coat from the Irish Setter and are covered in the Poodle’s curls, although they aren’t entirely standardized yet.

The Irish Doodle has a playful demeanor and a versatile number of uses, such as hunting dogs and retrievers. They make wonderful family pets and companion dogs for active singles and seniors.

An Irish Doodle needs plenty of exercise and often does better living in the country. Otherwise, take them out frequently enough to keep them mentally and physically occupied.

36. Westiepoo (Poodle x West Highland White Terrier)

The Westiepoo is a mixed breed dog combined with a West Highland White Terrier and a Mini Poodle. They are often an elegant dog that bonds closely with their family and loves a good cuddle.

The Westie adds spunk and stubbornness, while the Poodle parent adds grace and calm. The Westiepoo is typically a well-behaved and playful combination of them both.

37. Aussiedoodle (Poodle x Australian Shepherd)

Image Credit: Steve Bruckmann, Shutterstock

An Aussiedoodle features the mix of an Australian Shepherd and a Poodle. They are typically bred with a Standard Poodle and are medium-sized dogs, although they can be toy pups. These dogs are intelligent and have become quite common, to the point that they are trained and used as service animals.

Aussiedoodles are considered hypoallergenic because they shed so little. There are not many medium- to large-breed dogs that are hypoallergenic, so for people with allergies, this can be an exceptional pup.

The Aussiedoodle is a happy, friendly dog that loves to be cuddled, no matter their size. Their color ranges from grey to cream, white, black, and brown. They often have curly or wavy fur that is thick and needs to be groomed.

38. Havapoo (Poodle x Havanese)

A Havanese and a Toy Poodle combine to create the lovely Havapoo. Even the name sounds like encouragement to adopt one of these little dogs. They are cheerful pups that can easily be used as emotional support animals. They inherit a gentle heart and a graceful demeanor from their parents.

The Havapoo has a wide variety of options in terms of their appearance. They are often wavy- or curly-haired dogs with varying colors of brown, white, and beige. They can also be black and white, although that color combination is not as common.

39. Bordoodle (Poodle x Border Collie)

The Bordoodle is an energetic and quite beautiful cross between a Border Collie and the Poodle. Their appearance is much determined by which parent they favor the most. They can look like a Border Collie with a softer face and wavier fur or like a typical Doodle dog that is mostly black and white.

These dogs need plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. They are a combination of some of the smartest dogs around, so they need to be given tasks or puzzles to feel challenged and interested.

The Bordoodle has been known to be somewhat over-protective of their family and will love them with boundless devotion.

40. Weimardoodle (Poodle x Weimaraner)

The Weimardoodle is a cross between a Weimaraner and a Poodle. It depends on what kind of Poodle the breeder uses when combining these dogs to know the size that they will be. Their overall shape and coat-type depend on which parent they favor, since they do not have many physical similarities.

Weimardoodles are often brown, gray, or white. They can have hypoallergenic coats and are typically quite large dogs. They inherit a calmer demeanor from both of their parents, so they are typically well-behaved and easy enough to train.

41. Saint Berdoodle (Poodle x Saint Bernard)

The Saint Berdoodle is a remarkable Doodle. A cross between a Saint Bernard and a Poodle equals one giant, fluffy teddy bear. They have loving personalities and tend not to drool as much as their Saint Bernard parentage.

Even if this breed is hybridized with a smaller Poodle variety, the dog still tends to be over 100 pounds. They are an affectionate mix, and it would be hard to find a more devoted and loyal mix. They are typically easy to train because they are eager to please their owners.

The Saint Berdoodle has thick fur that will generally be curly. They need quite a bit of grooming and should be watched during hot seasons. Their coat patterns resemble more of the Saint Bernard, with markings of brown, tan, white, and cream.

42. Shepadoodle (Poodle x German Shepherd)

The Shepadoodle is a mix between a German Shepherd and a Poodle. They are highly trainable breeds that are capable of a wide variety of tasks and jobs. The Shepadoodle also happens to be one of the most intelligent Doodles and is a popular breed.

The German Shepherd brings a vast amount of loyalty into the mix, along with smarts and courage. The Poodle brings the hunting instincts from their retriever days. All of this combined makes the Shepadoodle a highly valuable and balanced dog for families and for working conditions.

43. Schnoodle (Poodle x Schnauzer)

Image Credit: yhelfman, Shutterstock

Schnauzers are not common dogs, yet they have found their way into so many different hybrid breeds. The Schnauzer and Poodle make a Schnoodle. The problem with breeding this dog is that they are rarely a 50/50 mix. They need to be bred a couple of times to reach the desired size and fur texture.

Even though they can be harder to obtain, they are cute enough to merit the search. The pups typically resemble the Schnauzer in their facial features and build. They are agile and energetic but still loving and friendly.

The perfected Schnoodle mix has a fluffy coat with a mix of the tufted, straight fur of the Schnauzer and the curly hair of the Poodle. They are often grey and white, although they can be black and have tan markings.

44. Rottle (Poodle x Rottweiler)

The Rottle is like a softened version of a Rottweiler, with the gentle brown eyes of the Poodle and a face and ears that are less pointy. The Rottle mixes the two parents, a Rottweiler and a Poodle, very well, bringing out some of the better characteristics from them both.

These dogs combine the fierce and loyal heart of the Rottweiler with the intelligence and affection of the Poodle. Their size can vary quite a bit, but that doesn’t make them any less capable as a watchdog and as a guard dog.

45. Lhasapoo (Poodle x Lhasa Apso)

The Lhasa Apso is one of the oldest known dog breeds, originally coming from the Tibetan monasteries. When mixed with a Poodle, they are called a Lhasapoo. They are not one of the standard Doodle mixes, and they deserve more attention.

The Lhasapoo is a dog that is so eager to please, they will make it work no matter what situation they are in. They make fantastic apartment dogs but will happily use a fenced yard if they have access. They are excellent companion dogs, although they can be a bit independent at times, especially if their personality favors the Lhasa.

Lhasapoos have coats that range from curly to straight and have a wide variety of potential color patterns. They can be white, cream, grey, black, brown, and tan.

46. Sproodle (Poodle x Springer Spaniel)

A Sproodle sounds more like a type of mushroom than a dog to some people. When you mix a Springer Spaniel and a Poodle, though, a Sproodle is exactly what you get.

A Sproodle can also be called a Springerpoo or a Springerdoodle Retriever. They are often medium-sized dogs, but that depends on the type of Poodle used in the breeding. They are intelligent and make great pups for first-time owners who want to work on special dog tricks.

The Sproodle gets along well with children and is adaptable to different kinds of families. They have enough energy that they might not always do well in an apartment setting.

47. Newfypoo (Poodle x Newfoundland)

Newfypoo (New Foundland and Poodle Mix) Dog Breed Info
Image Credit: Kapa65, Pixaabay

The Newfypoo is a lovable, large dog that can sometimes resemble a Wookiee (of “Star Wars” fame) because they are so big and furry. The mix involves a Newfoundland and a Poodle, typically a Standard. The Newfypoo might be big, but they are also rated as one of the best dogs for kids because they are so gentle and considerate.

This Doodle is one of the largest and can weigh up to 150 pounds. There is no possibility of a toy variety in this breed.
