A Sheepadoodle is a cross-breed/hybrid dog obtained by breeding an Old English sheepdog with a poodle. The name (which alters "poodle" to "doodle" in reference to the Labradoodle) was coined in 1992. A first generation (F1) Sheepadoodle is a doodle which is bred from an old English sheepdog and a poodle. First generation doodles tend to have added health benefits since they are the first in their line. They shed very lightly. F1b sheepadoodles are first generation backcross sheepadoodles which mean they are bred from a sheepadoodle and poodle. This helps with allergies as this generation sheds even less than F1.
The Sheepadoodle is a high-energy dog that requires lots of walks and mental stimulation. Sheepadoodles are bred from working dogs and enjoy keeping an active lifestyle while being around their family.
