If you’re looking for a best friend who is loyal, playful, and gorgeous to boot, you may want to consider an Aussiedoodle. This beautiful hybrid is a cross between the Australian Shepherd and the Poodle.
Aussiedoodles come in many fascinating colors, including white, beige, tan, blue, gray, red, brown, chocolate, and black. They also come in tricolor coats with a scruffy texture and tight curls. Red merle and blue merle Aussiedoodles are usually the product of a white- or cream-colored poodle parent and a merle Australian shepherd parent because the merle gene is dominant.
These dogs have moderate to high energy levels that can be satisfied by regular walks and hikes, or by more energetic activities like running or fetching. They also love the water!
Aussiedoodles are known for being outgoing and friendly—they make great playmates for children of all ages. They’re also gentle enough to be wonderful companions for seniors.
