Short description

The Sheepadoodle is a hybrid of Old English Sheepdog and Poodle. This breed was used as a herding- and working dog. He is very independent and needs different exercises in order to be challenged physically and mentally. Slowly, breeders try to turn the Sheepadoodle's image in the direction of a family-dog, however this breed is still not suitable for lazy city people. He needs a lot of physical exercise and is super willing to learn. Consequently, he is suitable for all kinds of dog-sports. This breed is almost extinct.

This information is indicative and adheres to the breed standard. Each animal is an individual and has a personal character, as well as its own needs. Thus, a breed is not a guarantee of certain behaviors, etc.
