We love our Sheepadoodle puppies. I'm so glad
I finally made the decision to add them to our
program here at Apple Creek. Each puppy is
unique, they have an individual look with
markings that are their own, no two are the
Our Sheepadoodle parents are fully health
tested and puppies come with Apple Creek's 2
year health warranty. Puppies are socialized
very well. They will all greet you with a kiss.
Our Sheepadoodles are bred to look like
Sheepadoodles!, We do not and will not dock
tails, we breed well coated shaggy puppies
with great patterns.
A Sheepadoodle is a designer breed crossing an Old English Sheepdog with a Standard Poodle.
Sheepdogs are wonderful family-oriented dogs with a pleasing personality. Their coats are
considered low-shedding and Sheepdogs are considered to be, on average, approximately 85%
hypoallergenic. When crossing a Sheepdog with a Poodle, you significantly increase the dog's
hypoallergenic factor, most are low to non-shedding with a soft, wavy coat. The result is a "smarter"
Sheepdog that is ok for allergies, low to non-shedding and a GREAT family dog. These dogs are
eager to please, intelligent, extremely trainable and make good companions. They are loyal and
very people-oriented and are great with children if raised correctly.
Their calm temperament and love for people is notable. Sheepadoodles are becoming a well
loved type of dog because of their wonderful temperaments and their teddy bear looks.
Sheepadoodle puppies are incredibly intelligent and easily trained. They make for a wonderful
family pet and can even be very good health care service dog or guidance dog. They love to be
with their family, play, go for walks, or just be by your side. It is very important to start your training
with your Sheepadoodle puppy the minute you get him/her home. They need parameters and rules
and it is important to enforce these rules from the beginning. A well behaved pet/companion is
highly favored, and they don't just happen by accident. They have to be trained.
Sheepadoodles, like all dogs, are creatures of habit, they learn by routine, persistence, and
Is the Sheepadoodle the Right Breed for you?
Moderate Maintenance: Grooming should be performed regularly to keep its fur in good shape.
Low Shedding: Some Sheepadoodles may shed lightly. Brushing will reduce shedding as well as
make the coat softer and cleaner.
Moderate Training: Training will depend on the puppy, sheepadoodle puppies have a lively nature.
Expect results to come gradually. Sheepadoodles tend to be an excitable breed.
Puppies can have a no-fear type of personality, they can be more vocal and demanding than your
typical doodle. Sheepdogs are a breed known to mature slowly, this could mean your
sheepadoodle could maintain a puppy like nature until 2-3 years old.
They are confident and bold which can lead to more effort needed for training.
Good Watchdog Ability: This dog will bark and alert its owners when an intruder is present.
Slightly Active: Not much exercise is required to keep this dog in shape.
Good with Kids: This is a suitable breed for kids and is known to be playful, energetic, and
affectionate around them.
Sheepadoodles mainly come in black or black and white (silver/white adults). Often times, the
black will fade to silver or silver and white, similar to the Old English Sheepdog. Occasionally,
Sheepadoodles are born with a lot of white, or almost all white with a touch of black. Old English
Sheepdogs do not carry any color genes and they are born black and white but they fade to
silver/white once grown. I do not expect, and have no way of knowing if any of our sheepadoodle
puppies will stay black/white. Since poodles also carry a fading gene it would be very rare for these
pups to stay the color they are as pups once grown.
The majority will fade to silver/white like their OES dad.
Because both the Old English Sheepdog and Standard sized Poodles tend to be larger breeds,
Sheepadoodles tend to be as well. Sheepadoodles come in many different size ranges depending
on the size of the parent Poodle. We can get medium sized pups when we use our Moyen poodle or
Miniature pups with our mini poodle.
Merles are typically $4000, Black/White pups are $3000, pups with blue eyes may be more.
Pups are priced once eyes are open.
Life Expectancy 10-13 years.
Sheepadoodle Deposit Process
I do not keep long waiting lists. I prefer to take deposits per litter and not until I
have confirmed the pregnancy or maybe not even until the puppies arrive. With
this process I don't have to worry about not having enough pups to go around, I
always place them before ready to go and this works for me.
-SHEEPADOODLE SELECTION PROCESS-
Puppies are available on a first come basis. Once 5 weeks old they are available to reserve.
Our Sheepadoodles come in many different patterns, no two are the same!
Here are examples of the markings our Sheepadoodle puppies typically have.
Panda markings have those similar to a panda bear - two black eyes. Random marked puppies have
black spots randomly placed on their body, head and or face. One eye pups have a black circle
around one eye could be the left or right eye, Tri Phantom puppies are colored similar to a Bernedoodle
but will have that fluffy soft coat as Sheepadoodles do (we won't have that color often)
