    Hello - We are hoping to find a sheepadoodle puppy for our family. Does anybody know of a breeder?

    Thanks

    As with most crossbreeds, you're unlikely to find an ethical breeder of these.

    Can I ask why a ''sheepadoodle"?
    Poodle is often used to jump in on potentially false hypoallergenic/non shedding claims, but since OES aren't heavy shedders anyways, what's the point? Both are intelligent and reasonably biddable, both need frequent grooming, both share similar health issues.
    Finding a well bred puppies of either breed makes more sense IMO

    What's a sheepadoodle? And what is it about a sheepadoodle that you are looking for in a dog?

    Standard poodle/Old English sheepdog? Never heard of it to be honest.

    I had visions of a sheep being crossed with a poodle :eek:

    Very glad to hear that that isn't the case.

    Me too. Please say we’re not breeding sheep with dogs now.

    Me too, I suppose if you crossed a sheep with a poodle you would be guaranteed a thick woolly coat. Problem is sheep wool is full of lanolin and poodle wool is free of it so you could end up with a very greasy poodle.

    Which, depending on the breed of sheep, would either shed everywhere in the spring or need annual shearing

    if it was sheared it would turn into a goatadoodle - according to my daughter when she was about 5 and watched the sheep going in the shed to be sheared and coming out the door as goats.

    Perhaps this would be a type of sheep that herds itself ;)
