The Doxiepoo, equally referred to as the Doodle Dog, is a cross between the Poodle and Dachshund. They vary quite a bit in terms of size, coat texture, and coloration. One thing is certain though, that this little dog will be an energetic little bundle of curiosity. If this sounds like a lot to handle, you may be right; they take time and patience to train and this, along with socialization, should be done early. Consider, however, how sweet, loving and affectionate of a bond they create with you and the trials will all be forgotten. Plus, they make excellent watch dogs.
Doxiepoos are known to be territorial towards other dogs and weary of strangers. They can make good family companions if kids are taught how to interact responsibly with them. They can be easily exercised and, ideally, should have a fenced yard. It is important to note that this breed may bark frequently and they are not hypoallergenic.
