    The Saint Berdoodle is the product of crossing a Saint Bernard with a Poodle. Like most designer dogs, the Saint Berdoodle's history is unclear. Aside from the fact that it originated in the United States, there isn't much information about how or when the Saint Berdoodle came to be. It is believed that the breed was created during the 1980s, which is when the "designer dog craze" first started. Due to its mixed breed status, the Saint Berdoodle cannot be recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC). However, the breed is registered by the American Canine Hybrid Club (ACHC), the Designer Breed Registry (DBR), and several other clubs for hybrid and designer breeds.
