Poodles are among the most popular breeds around the world and so are their crosses. Because of their hypoallergenic coat, intelligence, and smartness, they have been bred with other purebred dogs to develop a more diversified breed that has mixed traits.
Believe it or not, the Poodles have been crossed with over 100 different breeds to develop newer breeds and some of them are Shih Poo, Bernedoodle, Saint Berdoodle, Newfypoo, Groodle, Labradoodle, and Maltipoo.
