Artist's Description

This is a Designer Dog – a Doodle.

What is a Doodle? A doodle is a dog that is supposed to be a hybrid, and more superior than the dog breed that was combined with a poodle to produce it.
Doodles are the same mixed breeds or mutts we grew up with. The only difference is that Fido is no longer a mutt, he’s now a labradoodle, a spoodle, a pekepoo, a cavoodle, a giant schnoodle, a maltipoo, a spanador, a goldendoodle, a cockapoo … the list goes on.

Where did the myth come from that crossing anything with a poodle and calling it a doodle magically made the dogs hypo-allergenic, non-shedding, wonderful creatures, full of fun and energy? Fact is that what some people pay megabucks for will most likely grow up to shed and have a wavy coat that needs constant brushing or even clipping. But, in opposite to pure breed owners, these people will not know that until their designer breed with a fancy name and a huge price tag, often a LOT more than that of a pure breed dog, grows up.

Sure, this dog is very family friendly, active, lively, somewhat smart and has a great sense of humor. He’s a dog and I like him – I like all of them. But for every purchased designer dog another dog dies in a shelter because no one wanted to give it a home, and most dogs in shelters are mixed breeds ….
