About the Shepadoodle
The Shepadoodle is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the German Shepherd and the Standard Poodle. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Shepadoodle is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.
