7 Popular Standard Poodle Mixes
The Poodle currently ranks eighth on America’s list of most popular dog breeds. “People love poodles because they come in a variety of sizes, they’re highly intelligent, and they don’t shed very much,” says Nancy Soares, founder and owner of Macungie Animal Hospital in Macungie, Penn.
And nowadays, Poodle mixes are climbing the charts, too. These “designer dogs” boast long waiting lists and fetch high price tags. Because crossing poodles with other breeds is fairly new, however, the outcome isn’t always the same. Temperament, size, and appearance come down to genetics, says Soares.
But they’re all usually cute. These seven mixes have the standard poodle—the largest type of poodle which measures more than 15 inches tall—as one of the parents. Which one is your favorite?
