Poodle Mixes

Did you know that there are over 60 Poodle mixes today? That’s a lot of Doodles, Poodles, and Poos to keep track of! And today, the spotlight is on these fun and delightful mixes!

Labradoodles are larger Poodle mixes taking after the familiar fluff of their Poodle parent and outgoing nature of a Lab. We also have the cute and cuddly teddy bear-esque Maltipoo, a cross between the Maltese and Poodle. And let’s not forget the Goldendoodle, the adorable offspring of a Golden Retriever and a Poodle.

Discover more about the unique quirks of these 62 Poodle mixes – and why they’re some of dogdom’s most popular mixed breeds.

62. Belgian Doodle: Belgian Malinois + Poodle

Belgian Doodles are a mix of the Standard Poodle and the Belgian Malinois. They are somewhat a rare mix but quite fascinating nonetheless. These canines look a lot like a Malinois but with a wavy coat and smaller build that rarely hits the scale at over 60 lbs.

Another interesting feature of the Belgian Doodle is that it does not shed as much as a purebred Malinois. So, it’s a great choice for Malinois fans who have allergies and can’t handle the shedding situation.

61. Pit Boodle: American Pitbull Terrier + Poodle

A unique combo of two popular breeds – the American Pitbull Terrier and the Poodle – the Pit Boodle is such a sweetheart. These medium-sized canines are usually under 50 lbs with a muscular body as a Pittie. They also inherit the Poodle’s fluffy coat, which comes in a range of colors.

Perfect for highly active folks, the Pit Boodle is an enjoyable companion for your outdoor adventures. They are always game for anything – even hours of cuddles and naps by your side.

60. Ratoodle: Rat Terrier + Poodle

Ratoodles are very much like the Rat Terrier but with a bit of waves and curls on their coats. These fellows usually have brown and white coat colors while others are tricolored, combining the gorgeous shades of tan, white, and black.

Although they are a bit small at 15 lbs, Ratoodles are exceptional watch dogs. No intruder can go past their alert and watchful eye. These are fiercely loyal pooches that are always ready to protect their family and their properties.

59. Sheltiedoodle: Shetland Sheepdog + Poodle

Image from Instagram:@amelia_the_sheltiepoo

Another small Poodle mix, the Sheltiedoodle is a 20-pounder pooch that looks much like its Poodle parent but with a Sheltie’s typical brown, white, and black colors. Their snout is a bit shorter than a purebred Poodle and their big brown eyes are reminiscent of a Sheltie’s.

Sheltiedoodles are super affectionate pups that always long to be by their owner’s side. With that being said, they cannot handle hours of time alone and may develop separation anxiety as a result.

58. Vizsladoodle: Vizsla + Poodle

Coming from both hunter parents, the Vizsladoodle is the offspring of a Poodle and a Vizsla. These are large pups weighing around 40 to 60 lbs. They possess a Poodle’s tight curls, which comes in shades of dark brown and black.

First-time owners should have a relatively easy time training this pooch. They are naturally intelligent and obedient, which allows them to pick up new tricks quickly.

57. Foodle: Fox Terrier + Poodle

Image from Instagram:@gone.todash

Foodles are lean, medium-sized pups weighing up to 40 lbs. They are often lean like their Fox Terrier parent but a low-shedder as a Poodle. Although they are not your hypoallergenic dog, they are pretty easy to care for. Just a bi-weekly grooming should suffice to keep their fluffy coats under control.

Because of their Terrier gene, Foodles have a strong prey drive. Give them a fenced yard where they can run around for hours on end and these canines are a happy camper!

56. Choodle: Chow Chow + Poodle

Image from Instagram:@nikkothepoodle

A hybrid dog that’s a mix of the Chow Chow and the Poodle, the Choodle is a ball of fluff but with minimal shedding. They can grow up to 60 lbs while some are smaller at under 50 lbs. Their coats often come in luscious shades of brown with some patches of gray and white.

Choodles are not barkers but they do alert their parents when strangers are around. They can also be a bit headstrong, which makes them more suitable for experienced dog owners.

55. Tiboodle: Tibetan Terrier + Poodle

Image from Instagram:@isabelle.drysdale

Tipping the scale at 20 lbs or under, Tiboodles are small Poodle mixes. They have long, wavy hair in different colors such as black, white, brown, or beige. Although their hair is long and fluffy, the Poodle gene keeps the shedding to a minimum.

As these pups have a lower energy level, they should be suitable for apartment living. They do well with children and smaller pets in the house. However, their calm nature makes them more prone to stress when their environment is chaotic.

54. Doodleman: Doberman + Poodle

Image from Instagram:@louiethedoberdoodle

The name may sound superhero-esque but Doodlemans are actually a cross between a Doberman and a Poodle. They basically look quite like a Doberman – facial features, stance, and body shape – but with the wavy coat of a Poodle. Most of them have black coats with some patches of brown.

These canines are well-balanced and mellow. They still possess a Doberman’s loyalty and bravery, as well as a tiny bit of a Poodle’s high energy level. But overall, they do well with people of all ages because of their versatile personality.

53. Broodle Griffon: Brussels Griffon + Poodle

A tiny designer dog, the Broodle Griffon is what you get when you mix a Poodle and a Brussels Griffon. Miniature or Toy Poodles are commonly used to create this small mixed breed, which looks exactly like a Brussels Griffon with an abundance of wavy coat.

The Chinese Crestepoo or simply the Crestepoo is a rare Poodle mix. They are a combination of two different types of coats – a Chinese Crested’s lack of hair and a Poodle’s abundant fluff. The result? A shorter, curly coat in brown, white, brown, or black.

By nature, purebred Chinese Crested dogs are calm and mellow. But when mixed with the Poodle gene, they become a bit more energetic without being high-strung. They are also perfect with children because of their inherent patience.

Taking after their Lhasa parent, the Lhasapoo is an independent pooch. They are suitable for folks who are on an 8 to 5 work week. But they do yearn for affection and time with the family, so be sure to make them a part of your activities, as well.

This small pooch is the offspring of a Mini Poodle and a Cairn Terrier. Thus, you can expect to have a fluffy, affectionate lap dog in this tiny cuddlebug. They have hypoallergenic coats, as well, making them a good match for allergy sufferers.

Speaking of tiny, we have the ultra-compact Maltipoo. Their diminutive size allows them to fit easily in a compact home… Or even a purse! They are usually 10 lbs or less and covered in thick and wavy white or cream-colored fur.

Maltipoos are very social creatures. They love to be the center of attention and respond well to commands. These are intelligent creatures that are quite easy to train. Thus, they are perfect for first-time owners, couples, and seniors.

1. Labradoodle: Labrador Retriever + Poodle

Last but not least, we have the charming Labradoodle. A hybrid dog whose parents are a Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle, this pooch has tight curls but shorter in length than a Poodle. Depending on the parent’s coat color, Labradoodles may have black, chocolate, or white fur

In spite of the short fur, it is very important to brush it regularly to prevent mats and tangles. Think of it as a sheep’s thick and burly wool, which can get out of control without proper grooming.
