The Doxiepoo is a hybrid mix of two small to medium-sized dog breeds: the Dachshund and the Miniature Poodle. The Poodle is a popular dog breed for hybridization for its disposition, intelligence, and hypoallergenic coat qualities.

The Dachshund is an equally popular dog breed and makes for an excellent companion as well. Both parents are intelligent but can be slightly stubborn, especially the Dachshund parent. While the personalities of Doxiepoos do not vary much, the appearance and size of a Doxiepoo can vary depending on the parent breeds.

Doxiepoo Breed History

The Doxiepoo is a dog hybrid mix of the Dachshund and the Poodle dog breeds. The hybrid is a modern dog breed, and though standards are not available, the Poodle is a popular hybrid choice and owners may find a lot of relevant information on this mix, which is a popular designer choice. However, owners should review the histories and character traits of the parent breeds to understand the possible dispositions and traits of the Doxiepoo. The Poodle is a popular dog breed that includes the toy, miniature, and standard sizes. The Poodle is a German dog whose name is taken from the word Pudel, which reminds us of this breed's love of the water.

Though the Poodle is of German descent, he was developed and bred for change in France in the 1500s to 1600s. After World War II, the Poodle became the number one dog in America, remaining there for 20 years. Today the Poodle remains a popular breed, and is a steadily growing choice for hybrid dogs. The Dachshund, formerly a keen and adept hunter of rabbits and badgers, was also used as a tracker at one time. He was once called the German Badger Hunter but his name evolved to become the Dachshund, and his purpose changed as well, into that of a treasured companion. The Dachshund Club of England was founded in 1881 and around that time, 11 of the breed were also registered in the American Kennel Club's stud book.

Doxiepoo Breed Appearance

The Doxiepoo is a small to medium-sized hybrid between the Dachshund and the Miniature Poodle with a vast range of height and weight. The height and weight variation depend on the parent breeds, which can vary from toy-sized to medium. The Standard Poodle is not usually crossbred, but the Toy and Miniature are bred with different sizes of Dachshund parents. The Doxiepoo has a round head and large dark eyes full of expression. The nose is proportionate to the muzzle and is black and round. The body of a Doxiepoo is sturdy and shorter than it is long. Many Doxiepoos resemble the Dachshund in body with the shaggy, soft coats of the Poodle, leaving behind defining physical characteristics of both parents.

Doxiepoo Breed Maintenance

The Doxiepoo is a hypoallergenic dog thanks to the Poodle parent and sheds very little if its coat resembled the Poodle. The Dachshund supports low shedding as well. The medium to long hair on the Doxiepoo requires daily brushing to prevent tangles and mats. Regular ear cleaning with a veterinarian approved solution will help to avoid ear infections in your Doxiepoo, whose ears are long and floppy with moderate feathering.

You should also brush your dog’s teeth at least twice a week to prevent dental disease and keep his mouth clean. The Doxiepoo does not drool much at all. Keeping his coat and teeth clean are important parts of pet ownership.

Insuring your Doxiepoo as soon as “pawssible” is essential for preventing high vet care costs. Start comparing insurance plans from leading insurers like Healthy Paws and Embrace and save over $270 a year

Doxiepoo Temperament

The Doxiepoo is a companion dog with moderate to high energy. This hybrid dog breed is affectionate and loving toward its family and is happy to include children and other pets in his life. He accepts other canines and strangers but will thrive in an obedience class that allows him to overcome his shyness and showcase his intelligence. Children should be shown how to treat the Doxiepoo kindly, who may withdraw if loud noise and harsh words are used.
The Doxiepoo does not take well to boredom and lack of mental stimulation and will enjoy the company of humans and animals alike, particularly if socialized early.

Doxiepoo Activity Requirements

The Doxiepoo has a moderate to high amount of energy and needs daily exercise. However, both parent breeds have moderate intensity needs, making exercise easy. This hybrid does not need large spaces to run around, but a small backyard is ideal. Dog walks and trips to the dog park are both excursions welcomed by the Doxiepoo. Seeing the world and being comfortable in it will provide avenues to expand his mind and prevent separation anxiety

. This hybrid dog breed prefers the warmer temperatures but can tolerate any climate. He is not meant to be left outside alone, he prefers to be with the family and involved in whatever is happening inside.

One of the most loving and affectionate dogs I’ve ever met. Very loyal to myself in particular and gets separation anxiety when I am not there, but follows around my mum when I am not there. She’s my little shadow. Loves ballball and snuggles up in whatever temperatures.

Our Doxiepoo is very affectionate, and unfortunately gets bad separation anxiety whenever nobody is home. Good for an apartment but make sure you train them not to bark early. VERY easy to train. Love my Doxiepoo

My doxiepoo is working on crate training, after two weeks she is already sleeping through the whole night with no whining. She is energetic and loves to play with the big dogs and greet new people. Within two weeks of training she does "sit", "lay down", "roll over", and "sit pretty" up of her hind legs. Potty training is taking longer but she does always try to let us know when she has to go. So far, no aggression and only play barking with other at all

My dog is one that I will always remember. He is very vocal and makes extra sure that his voice is heard. He's also very quirky and smart, so smart that I sometimes think he is a human in a dog's body.

My Max lead a rough life before I got him. He was not taken care of by his original owners and so he has trouble with men. My parents had him after that, and didn’t devote enough time to loving him and working with him. So I got him! I have managed to calm him down, he loves my husband and my father now, and he loves to nip and bark for play, all the time his tail just wags!!! Max is a very good boy! He does bark a lot though if he hears anybody outside the door or sees anyone out the window.

Geo is the cutest puppy ever. He likes to play fight with our other dog (beagle mix) and is very talkative. When ever we're on walks and there is another dog, he will bark like crazy. He is still a puppy and still learning.

shes sweet and very affectionate but refuses to let us pick her up or touch her feet. she went in to get fixed when she was a couple months old and when she came back she was not the same. shes very fat because we feed her twice a day so she doesn't chew everything in the house. very easy to train and very well mannered except for her barking a lot and talking too much :)
