Sheepadoodle Breed Information
The Sheepadoodle is a mixed-breed dog that is a hybrid between an Old English Sheepdog and a Poodle.
Sheep-a-poo, Sheeppoo, Sheepdoodle, and Sheepdogpoo are some of the names given to Sheepadoodles.
Sheepadoodles began as a military dog experiment in the 1960s by the United States Army. In 1992, the term “doodle” was first used. Since then, Schnoodles, Goldendoodles, and now this breed has appeared!
The first appearance of these lively, caring, and compassionate teddy bears wasn’t until 2007. Crossbreeding purebred dogs has been done for decades in the hopes of cherry-picking the most useful aspects of certain breeds while eradicating fewer desirable traits or defects.
Mini Sheepadoodles can weigh 25 to 35 pounds and stand 15 to 20 inches tall at the shoulder.
Because the Sheepadoodle is a relatively new mixed breed, there are minimal size criteria. However, the Old English Sheepdog parent can be crossed with a regular, miniature, or toy poodle parent, affecting the size of the offspring.
These pups have a charming and active attitude, according to their many fans and owners. They appreciate cuddling with you on the couch just as much as they enjoy taking a quick walk outside.
Some Sheepadoodles can inherit their Old English Sheepdog parent’s herding instincts and may require plenty of outdoor playtime to burn off their pent-up energy. They are athletic and enjoy swimming, fetch, and learning new skills to please their owners.
Sheepadoodles are incredibly loyal canines that, although being people-friendly, can become excellent protection dogs for their families.
Poodles and Old English Sheepdogs are both noted for their intelligence, making the Sheepadoodle a simple breed to teach. Positive reinforcement and treats as rewards work best for them. These well-behaved dogs can enjoy learning a variety of tricks, especially since they require mental stimulation.
