A germensheprd poodle mix is crossbreed called a Shepadoodle. A Shepadoodle is produced through the breeding of a German Shepherd with a Standard Poodle. Although some hybrid crosses are considered purebreds, Shepadoodles are not a purebred breed. Shepadoodles are strong, agile, athletic, and grand in appearance. They have a life span of about 12-13 years and make very loyal and faithful companions. When fully grown they can be 22-26 inches in height and weigh between 85-95 pounds. With proper training they can be excellent family dogs, but they sometimes need to be supervised around young children.
Shepadoodles come in a three main colors: black, tan, and beige. Their coats can vary from dense and coarse to curly and silky. The amount of shedding will depend on the coat type of the dog. Both coats will require lots of grooming and it is recommended that their coats be brushed daily. They also thrive in cooler areas and need to be walked everyday for exercise. Shepadoodles are prone to have health conditions such as hip dysplasia, arthritis, and eye disease.
