Bella is a gorgeous 4-year-old Catahoula mix. She is a friendly, sweet girl that loves people and children. Bella enjoys playing ball and walks well on a leash. Not fond of other dogs, she is looking for a home where she can be the only dog.

Dear Readers, on a recent ferry trip to Victoria, B.C., I met the most amazingly adorable dog. Rocky is a Sheepadoodle, which is a breed unfamiliar to me. He is an emotional support dog who is tall and handsome. His owner described him as a Velcro BFF because of his loyalty.
During our conversation, I realized that the doodle breed is vaster than I had previously thought. What exactly is a doodle dog? A doodle dog is the result of a miniature, standard, or toy Poodle breeding with another dog breed.
The one consistent way to identify a doodle breed is that all breeds have some part of Poodle in their name. Following the original breed name, you will find doodle, -oodle, or -poo. Large dog breeds mixed with a Poodle usually have the doodle or -oodle ending while small dog breeds use the poo ending.
Doodles are either designer or mixed-breed dogs depending on the source. Breeders create designer dogs by mixing two purebred dogs, hoping to get the best traits from each breed in a puppy. Those desired traits are a family dog who is intelligent, good-natured with a low-shedding coat.
With breeding, each dog has slightly different unpredictable genetic outcomes. Not only do they apply to the dog’s appearance and temperament, but also any hereditary health issues. That is why you see Labradoodles with curly hair or wild wavy hair. There is no guarantee what traits the dog will exhibit including their health.
There are over 40 different types of Poodle mixes or doodles, and Rocky is just one. See him on Instagram at Rockydoodle22. Do not daddle if you want to see a cute doodle.
