Meet your new best friend: the mini Bernedoodle.
This first generation cross between the super-sized Bernese Mountain Dog and the clever, energetic Miniature Poodle is the perfect companion for a family that likes to spend time with their dog and is ready to commit to training and exercising their puppy daily.
Mini Bernedoodles are a loving, active breed known for being great therapy dogs because of their love of cuddling and snuggling. They’re also often hypoallergenic, which means they’ll be less likely to set off your allergies, and they tend to shed minimally or not at all. Their hair is a combination of the coarse and curly Miniature Poodle hair and the wavy, thick coat of the Bernese Mountain Dog.
Mini Bernedoodles are nearly always black and white with tan points (red or brown markings on the cheeks, eyebrows, and legs). This coloring is inherited from the Bernese Mountain Dog parent. The Mini Poodle parent’s coloring usually doesn’t play a big role in what your pup will look like.
