The Rhodoodle is a mix between a Poodle and a Rhodesian Ridgeback. The Rhodesian Ridgeback was bred to help hunt lions in Africa, which gives this Doodle dog quite the character.
The first generation of a Rhodesian Ridgeback Poodle mix may look more like the Poodle parent with some of the Rhodesian Ridgeback’s colors, markings, height, and weight.
Rhodesian Ridgebacks have short, tight coats that shed but generally are not odorous. Poodles have long curly hair that should be groomed every few weeks.
Rhodesian Ridgebacks come in a variety of colors and markings. These colors include: - Light Wheaten - Red Wheaten - Wheaten
Rhodesian Ridgebacks are a larger breed, whereas Poodles, as stated previously, come in three different sizes: toy, miniature, and standard.
Rhodoodles inherit a good mix of personality from both parent breeds. Poodles are a very athletic breed that is eager to please their owners. They are quick learners and are very trainable.
