Poodle Hybrids: Otherwise Called Mixed Breed Poodles

Aug 26, 2008
There is a surprising new trend rocking the dog world, the trend is called designer dogs. Some people might think that with a name like designer dogs the animals are the crme-of the-crme, the most perfect example of a dog that can be found, this assumption would be wrong. A designer dog is actually the combination of at least two different breeds of dogs, resulting in the creation of a whole new breed.

It doesn't matter what the breed combination is, dog owners can't get enough of them. Mixed poodle breeds are among the most popular designer dogs currently on the market. The irony is that it was only a few years ago that dog breeders would have been horrified at the idea of combining two different dog breeds. On the rare occasions that this did happen the breeders knew that there was very little chance that they would be able to sell the crossbred puppies, the best they could hope for was that they would be able to give the puppies away.

Today the mixed breed poodle puppies are no longer called mutts; in today's canine world the mixed breed puppies are given the illustrious title of designer dogs. Dog lovers can't seem to get enough of these mixed breed dogs. Popular mixed breeds of Poodles include the Weimardoodle (a Weimaraner Poodle cross), the Shepadoodle (a German Shepard and Poodle) and the Lhasa Poo (a Lhasa Apso and Poodle).

Another owner might tell you that they decided to purchase the mixed breed puppy because of its hair coat, the hybrid dog didn't shed or maybe they weren't allergic to it. Some owners like the idea that by combining two breeds of dogs, the Poodle and something else, they were able to get the best of both breeds' temperaments.

Other mixed breed poodle owners loved the fact that they now had an athletic dog that loved to be outside but was laid back enough to double as a house dog. Dog owners discovered after purchasing a mixed breed poodle their house insurance premium decreased. Combining Poodles and other breeds of dogs has helped cut down on the genetic illnesses common to many dog breeds. Dog owners that have a mixed breed Poodle love the fact that they can choose between a large framed dog or one small enough to fit in a teacup.

If you have never before owned a Poodle mix there are something's you should consider before rushing to the nearest breeder and bringing home a puppy. The first is to really thing about the types of breeds involved in the breeding. Every single breed of dog has some wonderful characteristics, just like every single breed of dog has some traits that aren't so desirable.

Ask what their experiences with the dog have been. See if you can spend some time with the dog, while visiting with the mixed breed poodle try to imagine it in your home. Invest some time researching both breeds. Some puppies bear a stronger resemblance to one of the breeds than it will to the other breed

The puppy's breeders will be able to tell you about how fast the puppies learn, what kind of diet is best, and the health problems they typically have to deal with. It is important to get to know the puppy's parents. Remember that if the parent's have strange personality quirks they will most likely be passed on to your puppy. Make sure you are confident with your choice of mixed breed puppy before you bringing it home.
