Mini Doodles are friendly, loyal and loving pets. Tiny Doodles are often low shedding too! Mini Doodles are also known as Toy Doodles as they often have a Toy Poodle parent. Today we'll share a complete list of Mini Doodle dog breeds. Looking at the pros and cons of different Mini Doodle puppies, and helping you to pick the right puppy Doodle dog for your family.
What is a Mini Doodle Dog?
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.

Meet The Mini Doodle Dogs!
Let's take a look at some of the most popular Mini Doodles and why we love them!
The Mini Aussiedoodle is a mix of Australian Shepherd and Miniature Poodle. This mix combines two very clever and active dogs. They are likely to benefit from keeping very busy, and having lots of fun time bonding through positive reinforcement training.
Mini Aussiedoodles can also end up being less mini than you might imagine, and closer to the Australian Shepherd's natural size. These aren't enormous dogs themselves, but aren't exactly small either!
This beautiful dog is a combination of the Bernese Mountain Dog and Miniature or Toy Poodle. This small Doodle can actually end up being a rather larger size than you might expect in adulthood.
Even if you combine the smallest Poodle with a Giant Bernese you might end up with a super-sized pooch. It's not possible to tell when they are puppies which is going to be biggest, so expect the unexpected!
The Cavapoo combines the Cavalier King Charles with a Miniature or Toy Poodle. These little dogs have a good chance of having a very friendly and fun nature.
Both parents are smaller in stature so you are guaranteed a pup that stays a nice portable size for life. But be careful to check the Cavalier parent's health certificates as they have some nasty conditions that you don't want your Mini Cavapoo inheriting.
The Mini Cockapoo is one of the most popular small doodles. Bred from a usually show bred Cocker Spaniel and a Miniature Poodle they are known for having kind dispositions and smart wits.
They are also likely to be very active, and benefit from a home that loves training and stays busy.
The Miniature Goldendoodle combines the large Golden Retriever with the Miniature Poodle. They are usually smaller than a standard Goldendoodle, but they might take after their Golden Retriever parent and surprise you.
This clever dog is likely to have a curly coat, and a curious, loving nature. These pups are generally healthy provided their parents have been tested for the conditions common to their breeds.
You thought the Mini Goldendoodle was your smallest option? Think again! But is shrinking a breed like the Golden Retriever down this far necessarily a good thing?
The teacup Goldendoodle is often a combination of Toy Poodle and Goldendoodle. But not always. Making a naturally larger dog as small as possible has some serious potential drawbacks.
The Mini Havapoo combines the sassy Havanese with a curly Miniature or Toy Poodle. This Mini Doodle is guaranteed to be small in stature and big in personality.
The Jackapoo is a combination of Miniature Poodle and Jack Russell Terrier. These mini doodles are pocket sized but packed with personality.
Sassy Jack Russell Terrier and aloof Poodle temperaments have a huge range of possible outcomes. But you can be pretty confident that they will be clever, busy little dogs.
The Mini Labradoodle is a crossed between a lively Labrador Retriever and a Miniature Poodle. This mix is usually smaller than their standard Labradoodle counterpart, but this isn't guaranteed.
You are more likely to have a little dog if the mix is with a Toy Poodle, but it's still not guaranteed. It's likely however that your companion will be good natured, friendly and brainy to boot.
The teacup Maltipoo combines the already tiny Maltese with a Toy Poodle. This cross has that worrying word, teacup, once again. The Maltese and Toy Poodle mixed together make one adorable, fluffy puppy.
But very small dog can come with very big health problems. And for that decrease in size you might be better off choosing the slightly bigger, yet still little, Maltipoo.
The Miniature Pomapoo is a Pomeranian Miniature Poodle mix. This small Doodle will have a peppy personality as well as an incredible coat. Ranging from long and wavy to tight curls, in a huge variety of colors.
Pomeranians are picture perfect, but like many tiny dogs can be a little grumpy on occasion, so make sure you meet the parents and are happy with their personality before you pick your puppy.
The Mini Springerdoodle combines with spritely Springer Spaniel with the more demur Miniature Poodle. As Springer Spaniels are medium sized dogs, your Mini Springerdoodle is likely to be small to medium sized. Not the smallest of the mini doodles, but not the largest by far.
This pup will probably be very energetic and have keen hunting instincts, so be sure to work on that recall from puppyhood.
Mini Doodle Size
Small doodles are created by combining a Miniature or Toy Poodle with another breed of dog. Although they have a Poodle parent in common these little doodles can vary hugely. In terms of appearance, personality and even size.
Your full grown Mini Doodle could be as small as the littlest breed, or as big as the largest! So make sure you get to know your chosen Mini Doodle well before you pick your perfect puppy.
Are Mini Doodles Hypoallergenic?
Mini Doodles are thought to be low shedding dogs in general, but actually when you combine the Poodle with another dog their coat might not capture the dander as well as you'd hope!
If you need a low allergy dog then do be careful when picking a Doodle mix. Where possible meet several dogs from that breed combination first, and spend time around them without your allergy meds.
Mini Doodle Puppies
The costs of a Mini Doodle puppy will be somewhere from $500 to $2000 dollars depending on where you buy them and which mix they are. It's important to take care when buying any puppy. Where possible meet both the parents and make sure they are friendly and well cared for. The breeder should have a bond with their dog beyond simply producing pups.
Make sure both parents are health tested for any conditions common to their breed, and that you are shown copies of the health certificates.
Avoid puppy mills and pet stores at all costs, and remember that your cute Mini Doodle could grow up to be more like one parent breed than the other. So make sure you love all their traits equally!
