Dachapoo: The Affectionate Mix Between a Dachshund and Poodle

The Dachapoo is a unique crossbreed between a Dachshund and a Poodle. They are one of the most unpredictable crossbreeds because they can have the long body of the dachshund and the curly coat of the poodle, or the poodle's body and Dachshund's fur.

Learn More About Dachapoos

  • Temperament

    While the appearance of Dachapoos varies greatly, their personalities are more predictable. They are affectionate and loving to their family, and love playing with children and other pets. They do not like being left alone and should be mentally stimulated with playtime and family interaction.

  • Health

    Being a hybrid, Dachapoos are generally healthier than purebreds but could inherit health problems from either parent, such as hip dysplasia, canine Cushing’s disease, bloat, intervertebral disc disease, Legg-Calve Perthes Disease, or Addison’s disease.

  • Activity Level

    Dachapoos have a moderate to high energy level and need daily exercise to thrive. Daily walks or trips to the dog park allow them to burn energy and socialize with other humans and animals.

  • Grooming

    The Dachapoo's coat varies slightly based off of what parent it most resembles. Generally, it will be curly like the poodle parent and will not shed much. To help keep those curls from matting, daily brushing is recommended. You'll also want to trim their fur every month or two to keep it from growing too long.

  • Shedding

    Thanks to their Poodle parent, Dachapoos do not shed much making them hypoallergetic in most circumstances.

  • Appearance

    Dachapoos vary from toy-sized to medium-sized depending on the genetics they get from their parents. Many Dachapoos have the long shape of the dachshund with the shaggy coat of the poodle. They are hypoallergenic thanks to the poodle parent, and will shed sparingly depending on the fur it inherits.

  • History

    The Dachapoo is a fairly new designer mix between a Toy Poodle and a Dachshund, so there is not much history here. You can be a part of the Dachapoo's early history if you adopt one today!
