As quickly as people have fallen in love with Doodles, the names for the various hybrids have evolved. Poodles have been crossed with many breeds, from large to small, to create doodle breeds. We’ve fetched a list of the many crossbreeds of poodles that have worked their way into the hearts and homes of dog lovers everywhere.
Whatever you call doodle dog breeds, there’s no denying the sheer cuteness of these dogs–and the MANY cute doodle names!
What is a Doodle Dog?
A doodle is a mix of two purebreds where one of the parents is a Poodle.
A doodle breed actually isn’t a breed, and it isn’t truly a hybrid (which would be the mix of two species)–it’s a crossbreed or a mixed breed.

More on Designer Dogs
Recently we pinned an infographic (you can see it below) about “designer dogs” on one of our Pinterest boards. It’s just a cute compilation of some interesting facts about these purposeful cross breeds, starting with the first purposeful Doodle–a Labradoodle mix bred in the late 1970s when a woman needed a service dog although her husband was allergic to dogs.
This infographic was commissioned by PetCareRx.com. Providing quality pet meds and supplies for all your pet needs.
The mix of a Labrador Retriever and a low-shedding Poodle created the Labradoodle and, as they say, the rest is doodle dog history.
The infographic went on to share cute photos of some of the most popular doodle breeds. They were all cute dogs with even cuter names.
The reaction, however, was not nearly as cute. Almost instantly, a comment came in that “ANY mixing of TWO breeds is a MUTT, that DOES NOT make it a ‘designer’ dog, which does not exist. It’s a fancy name people put on mutts to make them feel like they have something special or ‘worth more.’ Shame on you, DogTipper!”
Now, everyone who knows us knows that we love mixed breed dogs. (Excuse us, but we do not like the term “mutt,” as we’ve written about here in the past. We consider it a pejorative about the dogs with which we share our hearts and our home.)
But I digress.
Could the designer dog craze help shelters?
Our dogs have always been–and will always be–rescue dogs. When many people think of these designer dog crosses, they think of purposeful crossbreeding. Technically a “designer dog” –like a doodle — is the mix of two purebred dogs.
But, nonetheless, we feel that the term “designer dogs” is one that could help shelter dogs.
If people want to spend an often considerable amount for a purposeful crossbreed of purebreds, perhaps they’d be willing to look at the many mixes that fill shelters everywhere in a different light.
Our Tiki is a Poodle-Doberman-Sheltie-Bulldog mix. Could she be a Doodleman Bulltie?
If the acceptance of “designer dogs” makes dog lovers take a second look at the numerous mixed breed dogs, we think it’s a trend that shelters can use to help publicize and promote the great dogs that sit and wait for forever homes.
After all, a dog by any other name will be just as fantastic!
