We’ve recently come across a new dog breed called the Doxiepoo. Are you familiar with this dog? If not, you’re not alone! This was a new dog breed for us, too!

So, if you’re looking to adopt a dog, this one may be for you! We’ve put together information that you need to know about these dogs. Let’s get started!

What is a Doxiepoo?

The Doxiepoo (also called a Doxie/Poodle)  is a hybrid dog, which you may also hear called a “designer dog.” This hybrid dog breed is a cross between a purebred Poodle and a purebred Dachshund. What a unique combination! These are truly distinctive dogs.

Because these are hybrid dogs, it’s not always possible to predict what the puppies may look like, what their personalities will be like, and more. The reason for this is because the puppies each inherit genes from both parents. Within the same litter, some puppies may receive more genes from their Dachshund parent, while other puppies may have more genetics from their Poodle parent.

Each puppy is a unique little being. The puppies are never a 50/50 mix of the parents. Genes inherited from the parents are combined and expressed in unique ways in the puppies. The breeder is not able to always control the genetics of the puppies.

Poodles, like Dachsunds, come in different sizes and their coats may be a little curly like Poodle, or may be scruffy, long, short or in between like a Dachshund.

Doxies are usually friendly and easy to train. The dogs may the stubbornness and boldness of the Dachshund and the playfulness and trainability of the Poodle. The dogs may bark a lot like both parents, though the dogs are also cute as can be, affectionate, loyal, intelligent family companions. The dogs can also be a little jealous; for this reason, they usually do best in a single-fur baby home.

Doxiepoos can get along well with other pets if the dog has been socialized from a young age. In addition, they can get along with kids and other people. They can adapt well to living in small houses with backyards or even in apartments. The dogs just need to have plenty of exercise.

Doxiepoo Appearance

Because the Doxiepoo is a hybrid dog, there’s not breed standard for how these dogs should look. What’s more, each dog’s genes will vary, even within the same litter! So, a Doxiepoo may look in many different ways. It just depends on the genes inherited by your fur baby.

For instance, some Doxiepoos may have short legs like their Dachshund parent, or long legs like their Poodle parent. Their fur may be short, long, or even somewhere in between. It’s even possible for a Doxiepoo to have curly hair like a Poodle, or straight hair and long noses, like their Doxie parent.

The dogs can also come in a wide range of colors, including white, grey, brown, cream, black, and different color patterns.

The size of the Doxiepoos can also be challenging to predict. They may come in the toy, miniature, and standard size of their Poodle or in miniature or standard Dachshund sizes.

One thing that’s for sure is that no two Doxiepoos are alike, even if they come from the same litter. Even so, they are usually smaller dogs with fluffy hair. And they’re pretty cute!

Doxipoos usually stand between 8 to 23 inches tall and weigh between 5 to 30 lbs. They have a life expectancy between 10 to 15 years.

Doxiepoo Temperament

Both parents of the Doxiepoo are highly intelligent; it’s even possible they could be a little stubborn like their Dachshund parent. Both parents are also confident, affectionate with their families, playful, and good with other dogs. You might also say these are small dogs that have very large personalities!

One downside is that both the Poodle and Doxie parents tend to bark a lot. So, you can bet their Doxiepoo puppies will bark quite a bit, too. They bark at just about anything and everything, from the doorbell and small animals running in the yard, to mail deliveries and more. So, these dogs are usually not best for apartment dwellers.

These dogs love to be with their families and even like being lapdogs. They’re even tolerant of strangers, especially if they offer the Doxiepoo a treat!

Health of the Doxiepoo

While Doxipoos are usually healthy hybrid dogs, they can develop the following health conditions:

Grooming

Doxiepoo fur can vary and requires different care depending on the type of fur a dog has. For instance, if the dog has Dachshund fur, it may be coarse and short. This hair type doesn’t require special care, aside from regular bathing and a bath when needed.

On the other hand, if the Doxiepoo has fur that’s more like a Poodle, the fur will be curly and longer. This type of hair requires more brushing to keep it from matting and may need some grooming to keep the hair in good shape.

Do Doxiepoos Get Along with Kids and Other Pets?

Doxiepoos usually get along with children and adults. However, they may bark a lot when first meeting someone. Even so, they tolerate kids who treat them properly. However, they don’t deal well with rough treatment from kids. They may nip in defense and/or become scared.

When it comes to other pets, Doxiepoos are usually best as the only pet in the home. They can get along with other dogs and animals if the Doxiepoo has been properly trained and socialized. Even so, they are usually best as the only pet in the home.

Summing It Up

So, there you have it! Doxieposs are usually small dogs that are highly intelligent, loving with their families, and are usually best as the only pet in the home. They make charming, cute companions for families that can meet their needs!

If you’ve been thinking about adopting a Doxiepoo, we can say that you’ll have a loving, fun companion for many years to come!
