A brief presentation of the Beauceroodle

The Beauceroodle is a hybrid of the Beauceron and Poodle, both large breeds. They can grow quite large, measuring around 68.5 centimeters in height and weighing around 32 kilos on average. This breed is intelligent and loyal, but can be dangerous or uncontrollable if not properly trained. Due to their high breeding instinct, they will probably try to herd small children and other animals if left unsupervised. They have thick, medium to long fur that can be of almost any color or color combination. It's important to give them enough exercise to keep them fit and prevent obesity.

History of the Beauceroodle

The Beauceroodle is a specific cross-breed dog and dates back to the 1980s when breeders began mating purebred dogs to produce puppies that possessed the desired characteristics of both parent breeds, usually a healthier, smaller, hypoallergenic or softer form of a popular breed. With the Beauceroodle, it's the end result of breeding a Standard Poodle and a Beauceron. The Beauceroodle is the product of two highly intelligent, trainable breeds. Because the Beaueroodle is not a purebred dog, it is not eligible to join the American Kennel Club (AKC), but both parent breeds are members in good standing. The Poodle joined the non-sporting group of the AKC in 1887, while the Beauceron became a member of the breeding group in 2007.
        

A little of the Beauce Sheepdog

        
The Beauceron came from France in the 16th century, is not very common and is also known as the Berger de Beauce or Bas Rouge. They are large, independent dogs mainly used for breeding sheep and cattle. This herding dog has endless energy and is descended from the Briard and possibly the Doberman. There is a Renaissance manuscript dated 1578 with mention of the Beauceron being the largest and bravest of the French sheepdogs and were used by farmers to protect their flocks as well as their families. Their name is said to derive from the region of France near Paris known as La Beauce, where the dog originated. Until 1863, French sheepdogs were considered a single breed, but they then separated the short-coated Beauceron from the long-coated Briard. The French army used the Beauceron as a messenger during the world wars because it was so adept at detecting mines and following instructions. In fact, they are still used for some military and police work. The Beauceron Club of America was founded in 1980, but they were not recognized by the American Kennel Club until 2007, when they became the 140th most popular dog breed.

A little of the Poodle

The Poodle, although perfected in France, originated in Germany. They are one of the oldest known breeds and also one of the most intelligent. At first, they were just used for hunting and retrieving, but then it was discovered how intelligent they were and they became popular as show dogs and used in circus acts. Originally related to French, Hungarian, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese and German water dogs, they were also bred with Asian herding dogs and the Barbet. There are many stories about their history, but the most popular dates back to the first century when they were found in Egyptian tombs. There are two other sizes, toy and miniature, which were created by breeding smaller Poodles with smaller Poodles until they reached the desired size. The Poodle is the 7th most popular breed in the USA and was accepted by the American Kennel Club in 1887.

Appearance of the Beauceroodle

The Beauceroodle can have a black or brown nose, brown or amber eyes, a large head with soft, hairy ears, and a square, stocky body. Most have a long, hairy tail, and their thick, dense fur is wavy and medium to long in virtually any color or combination of colors. Some of the most common colors are black, gray, brown, red, cream, fawn, blue, silver, white, piebald and brindle. Since the Beauceron isn't a very popular breed, there aren't many of these hybrids, so their appearance hasn't yet been established. However, most Beauceroodle owners say their dogs look more like a sheepdog with the coloring of a Dobermann.

Temperament of the Beauceroodle

The Beauceroodle has a strong prey drive, but they can get on well with any animal they're bred with if trained, but they can chase them a bit. They are breeders at heart and will most likely try to breed other animals and even young children. However, they are intelligent and friendly so they can be trained by the right person with patience and positive reinforcement. Don't use physical punishment as these dogs can become aggressive. As long as they get the right amount of exercise and are well socialized, they make excellent family companions as well as protectors.

Needs and activities of the Beauceroodle

This breed has an endless supply of energy and can outdo anyone, even the most energetic children. Therefore, you'll need to make sure they get at least 90 minutes of vigorous exercise every day, which may include running, several brisk walks, a trip to the dog park to play with other dogs, or simply running around the yard with other dogs. or hunting local wildlife. These dogs are designed to work, so if you don't have a lot of outdoor space and activities for your dog, they may not be the right breed for you. If they don't get enough exercise, they may develop bad habits or behavioral problems.

Maintenance of the Beauceroodle

Your Beauceroodle's thick, beneficial coat requires a lot of maintenance and even professional grooming in some cases. They don't shed much, but they should be brushed daily with a pin brush and metal comb, and you may need to use a demat to avoid mats. You'll need to groom your Beauceroodle with clippers several times a year if it has the Poodle coat, or you can have it done by a professional. In addition, your Beauceroodle should have its ears cleaned with a damp cotton ball once a week. You should also check them for mites, wax build-up and other debris at this time, and trim his nails if necessary.
