- Border Poodle
The Bordoodle is a hybrid dog which is bred by crossing a Border Collie with a Poodle. As a hybrid dog they will inherit the physical and behavioral traits of both the Border Collie and Poodle dog breeds. However, not all will inherit the same characteristics (even if from the same litter). It is recommended to familiarize yourself with both the Poodle and the Border Collie if you are planning on adopting a Bordoodle as the breed can have more characteristics of one parent breed than the other.
This medium sized breed is known for being intelligent and affectionate family pets. This is a very friendly breed that loves people and children, and does fine around other pets. It may have a protective attitude towards strangers but should warm up to them quickly if their owner approves. Bordoodles have a low to non-shedding hypoallergenic coat that requires little grooming or cleaning. These dogs make excellent family pets or companions.
