The Airedoodle, a hybrid between the Airedale Terrier and the Poodle, originated in the United States to be a great family companion that combines the traits of the Airedale and the Poodle.
Airedoodles inherit physical traits from both parent breeds. Some may have more Airedale Terrier features and some more Poodle features. The size of the Airedoodle depends largely on the size of the Poodle parent - Poodles come in the sizes of toy, miniature, and standard. The hybrid has long, strong legs and a tail that is thicker at the base and skinner towards the end. The tail is also held straight or in a slightly raised position.
Airedoodles are generally intelligent, loyal, and affectionate. Since they are also very alert, they can be ideal for families and even act as watch dogs. They do require regular exercise. The best way to understand the temperament of the Affenpoo is to familiarize yourself with the characteristics of both the Airedale Terrier and Standard Poodle, any combination of these characteristics can be found from either breed.
