Why Choose a Weimardoodle?
Britney Kelley Weeks says: “We actually re-homed our baby girl when she was 5 months old from a couple that got pregnant and decided a new baby and new puppy was going to be too much for them. I had a 3 month old Goldendoodle at home and thought he would love a playmate.
I had never heard of a Weimardoodle before but I could not get over her gorgeous and soulful eyes. She immediately stole my heart. She and her brother are the best of friends and love each other dearly! We can’t imagine life without our two doods. Barklee Marissa weighs 55 pounds and is now 2 years old. Her mom is a long haired Weimaraner and her dad is a standard chocolate parti Poodle.”

History & Origins
What are the history and origins of the Weimardoodle?
The photo below has been sent in from Lisa Little. She says…
I’ve just come across your website. We rescued our Weimerdoodle Scoobie 5 years ago.
I have attached a few of my favourite photos. He’s gorgeous and knows it. Extremely affectionate but prone to sulking. Hates being left in the house alone. He follows me everywhere throughout the day – Velcro dog – is the expression I think.
He didn’t have a great start in life but is very happy now. Long walks each day in the open countryside and lots of love, cuddles and attention. However, he’s not to keen on new dogs arriving on ‘his’ turf. He’s prone to fear aggression but mostly with entire males.
Wonderful pet, but he should have been better socialised at and early age.
Good luck with your website.
Lisa and Scoobie
