Tobie the Doxiepoo at 7 years old—"Tobie was the smallest puppy in the litter and had the least hair. His mom was a brown smooth coat Dachshund. His hair ended up being about 3 inches long, but I kept it trimmed like a terrier. He was social, like most dogs and kids, but did bark. Tobie had the best temperament, and was very smart. He aced obedience class, knew 50+ words, and had his own doorbell. Everyone wanted to own him. He did have some skin + ear problems, and his heart ended up being bad. He lived to be 11 years old."
The Doxiepoo is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Dachshund 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.
"This is my Doxiepoo, Juno. She is 1/2 Dachshund and 1/2 Poodle. I am sure because she has ACHC and DDKC papers. She is such a sweet dog and I love her like crazy! I've absolutely fallen in love with this hybrid. She is very well behaved, gets along with all other animals, and walks nicely on a leash. The only problem is that she was difficult to housebreak, which is common in Dachshunds. However, she respects me as pack leader and we have a very nice relationship."

"Bubba is about 9 months old in this picture. He is just under 5 lbs. He loves swimming, digging in the sand, going on walks, and he is an absolute sweet, cuddly dog. He is great with other dogs, especially big ones. His "cousins" are Golden Retrievers and he loves them to pieces. He is very mellow, rarely barks and is an all-around great little addition!"

Hiena (ee-eh-na) the blue-eyed dapple Doxiepoo (Dachshund / Poodle mix breed dog) as a puppy at 9 weeks old—"Hiena's mom is a Toy Poodle and her father is a miniature chocolate dapple Dachshund. She got her father's smooth coat but it's a little longer in her chest, and his dapple coat. She was fairly easy to train using a method found in this site but she can be quite stubborn sometimes. She loves to run around the room at speeds that seem to fast for her little body, sometimes running past her objective and having to race back to it. She also loves to dig through her blankets and play with her mother. Her name means Hyena in Spanish and is named so because of her dapple coat. She has three sisters, all showing different characteristics from both breeds. One is golden with a smooth coat, body of a poodle with longer legs but with a dachshund's long snout and ears, another one looks like a pure bred doxie, chocolate brown with light brown underbelly and chest, short legs and long body, long snout, long ears, and smooth coat like her father's, another one is dapple too but her markings are bigger, longer hair and poodle head but with a long body and short legs, her ears have longer hair too."

"Meet Bear! The ferocious Dachshund / toy Poodle ;-). He is nothing but a sweet guy who wants to please. He loves to cuddle, but also likes to be independent when he’s outdoors. He definitely has hound in him. His nose is always to the ground. When I go for my daily walks with him I take a leash for when we are in town, but other than that he walks by my side or within a 10-ft radius of me. He sleeps by himself in his kennel but loves to come into bed in the morning for an hour or so. Ah, also housetraining was quite easy with him, took about 5 weeks. In the picture attached he is around 4 months old. He looks just like he was when I got him at 8 weeks old. Not to mention - EVERYONE loves him. I have people asking me all the time where I got him and if they have more."

Toby the Doxiepoo at 3 years old—"Toby is wonderful! He is the quintessential lap dog and he LOVES to snuggle. His favorite thing to do is run on the beach. He is a bit needy and has some separation anxiety but we love him all the more!"
"This is Moeglee, our little Doxiepoo at 5 months old. His mom is a purebred mini Dachshund and his dad is a purebred standard Poodle."
