Default Poodle terrier mix

If you could give your thoughts of what kind of terrier he is mixed with? The first picture is of Mylo as a pup the second is more up to date, sometime last winter.

Personally, I get a Westie or possibly Jack Russell vibe from his expression, and the shape of his body, slightly longer than tall.

What makes you think this dog has terrier in it? Was it a rescue & that is what the pup was described as, off the streets & best guess? How old, weight & more pictures. What makes it not a poorly breed poodle. There are & I hate to call them breeders BUT people breeding for a "teddy bear" or "baby doll" face on poodles. Why I have no idea but they are shortening the muzzle & broadening the cheeks. To me a "teddy bear" is a scissor job on the head not an actual head shape. I have heard of other breeds no breeding for "baby doll" faces in the Yorkie, Maltese, Chihuahua & now the Poodle.

He is my first dog that we actually bought and pure breeds are more expensive so went went with a mix. We have his papers and they say terrier poodle mix. I would like to know which terrier because i have been doing some research and trying to see what the characteristics are and normal behavior so that i can better understand Mylo's behavior. I am just curious i guess...

That is horrible that they are doing this to dogs, making them look like teddy bears. I picked this one because he was very small out of all the dogs at the kennel. I was told that he would not get much bigger but he did. He weighs about 33 pounds. I was looking for a lap dog, we have always had big dogs growing up. The breeder misled me with his size so to say that she would not have mistaken the breeds is possible.

33lbs? She looks a lot like the fuzzball wheaton terrier pup i groom. She might be some sort of wheaton/mini poo mix breed. Shame on the 'breeder' for printing up papers with just 'terrier' as the parentage. At least she's adorable! Be sure you have her thoroughly vet checked regularly, with mixes there are a grab bag of issues that can crop up.

There are a couple of poodles at the local dog park that were rescues, but are supposedly pure poodle. They have short legs, a shorter face and a longer body like your pup. Terriers vary from full sized airdales to little norfolks. If he is a mix between a standard poodle and a little terrier he could have grown that big. I just bet he was a mix with a poodle and a mutt or she would have told you which terrier it was. There is definitely poodle in there.

You can have his DNA checked if you are really curious, by the way. It costs about $200through your veterinarian. DO NOT order one of those kits on line- they are almost all scams (it has been shown that you send the same sample in twice and get different results). So, you can find out if you really want to.

He is very cute guy. Do you have a picture of him now? That may help people check him out more.

He is cute.

I'm curious. Why didn't you buy a purebred toy poodle pup or a purebred terrier from a reputable breeder who would have known what their line was and would have given you a health guarantee and would have been better able to give you the adult size to expect? I don't understand why you would pay for a mixed breed that the so called breeder(?) wasn't even able to tell you what kind of terrier the poodle was bred with.

This was not a rescue puppy, correct?

It's probably going to be a crap shoot with this fellow. You have no idea what health issues he may or may not present in the future. And, it sounds as if you are having some temperament questions as well.
