Mini Doodle dogs can make brilliant pets. They are bred by combining a usually small Poodle parent with another pure breed.
They fit well into most family homes, and tend to have friendly temperaments to match those gorgeous curly locks.
Small doodles tend to be bred from one Miniature or Toy Poodle parent.
This parent is mixed with another pure bred dog of a different breed, usually another Miniature variety.
Let's take a look at some of the most popular Mini Doodles and why we love them!
