Doxiepoo Characteristics

The Doxiepoo is an absolutely adorable hybrid mix between the Dachshund and the Poodle. These intelligent and affectionate dogs can take on a myriad of physical features, and two rarely look the same. If you're looking for a small, unique, loving, hypoallergenic companion, the Doxiepoo may just be the breed for you.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

A breed with many names, the Doxiepoo is also known as the Doodle, Dachdoodle, Doxiedoodle, Doxiepoodle, Dachshunddoodle, and Dachshundpoo. Whatever you call them, these dogs retain many of the best features from each parent, resulting in a lovable and smart companion.  
 
Breeding heavily influences the size of your Doxiepoo, as they can range anywhere from 8-23 inches tall and weigh between 5-30 pounds.  Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Doxiepoo was originally bred as a companion dog for those who are allergic to animals. The Doxiepoo was also meant to be a small breed that did not suffer the same diseases as the Dachshund or Poodle, both of which are prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding. The Doxiepoo comes in white, black, and other colored coats.
 
However, as previously mentioned, breeding the Dachshund and Poodle together can result in different types of coats, some of which are not hypoallergenic.  It is important to meet with your breeder before purchase if this is an important quality in your Doxiepoo.
 
While these are kind and loving dogs, they do best in single-pet homes and are keen to follow their humans from room to room.  Early socialization and obedience training are important for a well-rounded and obedient Doxiepoo.
 

How dog-friendly is Connecticut?

Connecticut has always been a good place for dogs, but the state has given even more effort recently to create a welcoming environment for pet-owners and dog-lovers. 


Pawsafe, a trusted source for dog safety ratings, ranked Connecticut 21st for pet friendliness. They also placed Connecticut fifth for the number of pet services available throughout the state and 11th best for pet-friendly accommodations. 


In recent years, Connecticut has increased the number of pet-friendly hotels, restaurants, and other establishments. If you want to bring your pet with you when you travel, you won’t have trouble finding a place to stay overnight or to dine out.

Pet-friendly rentals in Connecticut

A similar study from Safewise gave Connecticut a less glowing review. They graded the state 39th for pet-friendliness. One of the main reasons they rated the state this low is the relatively low percentage of pet-friendly rentals at just 9%. That’s very low compared to other states.


Additionally, only 24% of Connecticut residents own a dog, which is far below the national average of 40%. In fact, it’s second to last for dog ownership in the United States. In contrast, the state’s total pet ownership percentage is well above the national average with 50% of Connecticut families owning a pet. Maybe Connecticut is more of a cat person? 

A few more pet-friendly statistics in Connecticut

According to the American Kennel Club (AKC) the most popular dogs in the state are large, active, family-friendly breeds: German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, and Labrador Retrievers. Hartford’s most popular dog breeds include Huskies, Labradoodles, and Goldendoodles. Clearly Connecticut loves a companion for the whole family.


Connecticut has 1.4 dog parks per 100,000 residents. There are also many laws and statutes to create a pet-friendly environment. The state doesn't mandate that dogs remain on a leash at all times, as long as you don’t let your dog wander onto another person’s property.
