Aussiedoodle Questions

What is the longevity of an Aussiedoodle? Is there a propensity towards cataracts as poodles often have? Is there a propensity toward hip dysplasia as Aussies often have?

Answer:
There is no set standard for any mix breed of dog, including the 'doodles'. The Australian Shepherd lives an average of 13 - 15 years, while the Standard Poodle lives an average of 12 - 15 years. So a mix of the two breeds resulting in the Aussiedoodle could result in a dog living anywhere from 12 - 15 years. When ever two or more breeds are mixed together, the puppies can take after either the dam or sire more; it is rare that they take after both evenly. So some puppies may be prone to hip problems like the Aussies, while others may take after the Poodle and be prone to cataracts.

Are Aussiedoodle's dogs a hunting dogs?

Answer:
While the Poodle was originally bred for hunting, the Australian Shepherd was bred as a herding dog. When mixing breeds together, it is tough to say which side a puppy will most likely be like until adulthood. Some puppies may take after the Poodle, while others may take more after the Australian Shepherd. If you are looking for a Hypoallergenic hunting breed of dog, I would suggest the Curly Coated Retriever. You can find a breeder whom hunts with their stock so you know you'll be getting a real hunting/working dog.

If the father is an Aussiedoodle and the mother is an Australian shepherd, what will litter be called? Mother is short haired one blue/one brown eye.

Answer:
Your dog will technically be called, a mutt. But if people ask, then your pup is an Australian Shepherd, Poodle cross. As he will have very little Poodle in him compared to Australian Shepherd.

Answer:
In order for it to be an Aussiedoodle F1, it would be Australian Shepherd to poodle, an F1B would mean that pup crossed back to poodle and so on.

Answer:
The terms "F1B", "F2", "F3", etc. indicate that puppies have been produced out of mixed parents. While this does give greater consistency in coat type, it increases the likelihood of health issues. That is why we only encourage the F1 or first generation crossbreedings. It is our opinion that no responsible or ethical crossbreed breeder would produce anything other than true first generation puppies in which BOTH parents are purebred.

Answer:
It will be called and Aussiedoodle
