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 Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
