Overview
The Shepadoodle is created by the crossing of two breeds: German Shepherd and Poodle. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs" and are one of the larger sizes that are not as popular as some of the other crosses.
Character
The ideal Shepadoodle is well-proportioned, muscular, and strong. They should be sturdy and hardy in appearance and possess an intelligent and lively expression.

Does your Shepadoodle bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Loyal, affectionate, and devoted, the Shepadoodle is alert and active. They are family oriented and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. Boredom or loneliness will lead to destructive behavior. They do best in a home with older, considerate children or children they have been raised with. Shepadoodle's do well with dogs and non-canine pets they have been with since puppyhood. They are highly suspicious of strangers and will alert their family to visitors and out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
The Shepadoodle requires frequent brushing to prevent matting and tangling and to remove loose and dead hair. Bathing should be done when necessary. They may be prone to such health issues as sensitivity to flea bites, hip dysplasia, epilepsy, bloat, skin problems, and Von Willebrand's Disease.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The coat of the Shepadoodle is generally medium in length and may be straight, slightly wavy, curly, or a combination.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are a must. The Shepadoodle requires a dominant owner. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Shepadoodle puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Shepadoodle breed is not recommended for apartment living. They require a large amount of physical exercise and mental stimulation. Shepadoodle's do best in a suburban home with a large fenced yard or a rural setting with ample space to roam, run, and play. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Do Shepadoodles get along with other animals? For example cats?

Shepadoodles are great with other animals (even cats). Of course, bringing a puppy into a home with an older cat, the puppy needs to be taught that the cat is to be respected. Most cats handle that very easily with a swipe or two with their claws! But if your cat is timider, you need to teach the puppy that cats are to be respected.

We recently got a 2-month-old girl puppy, how much should we feed her? How big do Shepadoodles usually get?

Most dogs end up on a schedule of 2x a day (unless they are obese). Puppies need to be fed more often. Some puppies are what I call "grazers" - they nibble a bit on and off all day. Food should be available all day. Then there are the "snarfers" - they eat all of the food all at once. These puppies should be limited to a certain amount (check the bag of food you choose) and given 3 times a day.

When my Shepadoodle was a puppy, he had a sensitive stomach. I found that he did better on a lower protein food, such as Acana or Fromm when he was young. In large breed puppies like the Shepadoodle, make sure you don't over feed or give too much protein early on - it can make them susceptible to hip dysplasia and bone problems later in life.

Feeding Bowl - I have always fed him twice a day from a bowl on the floor. While you may be tempted, elevated bowls are a no-no for tall dogs, especially those like the Shepadoodle that are susceptible to bloat. A bowl on the floor forces them to eat slower, since they will have to lift their heads to swallow the food and temporarily slow down on consuming kibble.

My boy got to be about 80lbs, 28" tall, but still believes he is a lap dog.

I am wondering which makes for a "better" breed; when the Sire is a Shepherd or the Poodle?

It doesn't matter, as far as which makes the "better breed". Most breeders choose the female to be the GSD and the male to be the Poodle, simply because of size. The female GSD is better able to handle the birthing process with the Standard Poodle as the sire.

Are Shepadoodles nice and good with kids?

My Shepadoodle is nothing but nice with my grandkids. I've had her 3 years & children have never been a problem. I have my dog groomed every 3 months, basically a shave except for her ears & tip of her tail. She was a chewer when she was little, but not bad now.

My Shepadoodle is a therapy dog and we only visit children...he is great!

My Shepadoodle is very patient with children and lovely, however when he was young he jumped a lot, which could be upsetting for a small child.

Are there Shepadoodles that have less of the poofy fur or poodle hair? Perhaps a variation that looks more like a German Shepherd, and less like a Poodle.

Yes Shepadoodles come in different hair types, but as far as I know you wont know what type of hair they will have until they are born. I prefer the in between not too much of either because I need it to be hypoallergenic but I don't like the look of the poodle. If more like a poodle, the coat is the better for allergies.
