If you’ve never heard of them and want to see some Doxiepoo photos, we have some adorable ones here.
This isn’t a purebred dog at all, but a mix between two dogs, which is why you may not have heard of it — the Dachshund and the Poodle.
Mixing a Poodle with other breeds tends to be very popular because of their coat. The curly coat doesn’t shed a lot, which means they can be great for allergies. It’s important to remember, however, that in a mix, breeders can’t guarantee any coat. You may still end up with the Dachshund’s coat.
There’s nothing wrong with getting a mixed breed dog and there can be many great things about having one. When looking for a mix of two specific breeds, however, there are some things to be aware of. Bad breeders are prone to mixing because they don’t require AKC papers, or certification from any legitimate registry at all. This makes it easier to pose as an ethical breeder. The parents often aren’t health-tested or DNA-tested, so you could end up with some real health issues fast. They may also have some breeds thrown in there you weren’t aware of, which can affect temperament.
A Smart Dog
If you do get a legitimate Doxiepoo, you’ll have a great dog. These dogs are highly intelligent, and can be trained easily. They may have a slight stubborn streak and do require a lot of exercise due to their high energy, so you should make sure you’re prepared for the challenges of having one.
To truly understand this breed you can look at some of these photos of the dog from a puppy right through to a senior dog.
