If you were to picture a medium-sized dog with a soft, curly coat then you might be picturing the Whoodle – a cross between the Standard Poodle and the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier. Because Poodles come in three sizes (toy, miniature, and standard), the Whoodle also comes in three sizes – miniature, medium, or standard. Hybrid breeds like the Whoodle are sometimes referred to as “designer dogs” and sold for exorbitant prices. It is important to remember, however, that designer dogs are mixed breeds, not purebreds, and unless you purchase one from a reputable breeder, it may have more than just the Standard Poodle and the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier in its bloodline. Do your homework – it’ll be worth it in the end!
