Mini Bernedoodle Size and Weight:
A Mini Bernedoodle has 10-15 inches of mature height and their weight may vary from 10 to 115 pounds. The reason behind their highly variable weight is the difference between a Poodle’s and a Bernese weight. Poodles are usually 15-17 pounds while the Bernese Mountain Dogs are over 100 pounds, so Bernedoodles can inherit weights from any one of them.
Average Lifespan of Mini Bernedoodle:
Poodles’ average lifespan is 13-15 years while the Bernese Mountain Dogs can live up to 8 years. Amazingly, unlike the parent breeds, the Mini Bernedoodles have a slightly longer lifespan or we can say that they inherit their lifespan from the Poodles. They can live up to 17 years.
