Description

The Sheepadoodle is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Old English Sheepdog and the Poodle. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Sheepadoodle Puppy (Old English Sheepdog / Standard Poodle Hybrid)

Sheepadoodle puppy (Old English Sheepdog / Standard Poodle mix breed)—"A Sheepadoodle is a designer breed crossing an Old English Sheepdog with a Standard Poodle. Sheepdogs are wonderful family-oriented dogs with a pleasing personality. Their coats are considered non-shedding and Sheepdogs are considered to be, on average, approximately 85% hypoallergenic. When crossing a Sheepdog with a Poodle, you significantly increase the dog's hypoallergenic factor to (nearly) 100% and they are non-shedding with a soft, wavy coat. The result is a "smarter" Sheepdog that is hypoallergenic, non-shedding and a GREAT family dog. These dogs are eager to please, non-dominant, intelligent/extremely trainable and make good companions. They are loyal and very people-oriented and are great with children. These dogs are great with other animals, too! Their calm temperament and love for people is notable."—Photo courtesy of Rise-n-Shine Kennels
