Alder the Entertainer Whoodle Puppy
Friends, meet our latest additon, Alder the Entertainer Whoodle Puppy, a cross between a Poodle and Wheaten Terrier, a non-shedding and hypoallergenic dog.
Today I want to introduce you to our new Whoodle pup, Alder! (Alder, meaning Irish tree.)
Welcome to the Coughlin Family, Alder!
Everyone is asking what a Whoodle pup is, and if you follow me on Instagram (and watch my stories), you’ll see more about this adorable puppy (@SandyCoughlinRE) and watch him grow up!
Alder the Entertainer Whoodle Puppy
A Whoodle is a cross between a Poodle and a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier.
They are gentle, loving, SMART, beautiful dogs, and we are so in love!
I thought I’d share my story of how I learned about this amazing breed. We decided to get a Whoodle puppy over a year ago, when my dental hygienist showed me a picture of her “Ziggy.”
From there, our family went to meet Ziggy, and fell in love with the breed.
Come to find out, they are bred right here in our small town (if you want more information, please email me). What a small world, to find a breed you feel is so right for your family, only 10 miles away. (Picking out our pup below, Alder was our little guy and pick of the litter!)
Whoodles in different sizes
Whoodles come in different sizes—mini, medium, and standard.
The Standard Whoodle can weigh up to 65 pounds.
The Medium Whoodle, typically weighing between 35-45 lbs., is a medium size dog.
The Mini Whoodle weighs between 18-20 lbs when grown.
Here’s the beauty of a Whoodle, besides being extremely intelligent, and quick to learn: Whoodles are non-shedding and hypoallergenic! They also have very low dander, which makes them an excellent choice for those suffering from allergies or asthma.
Whoodles get along great with younger kids and other dogs and cats. It’s pretty cute how Alder is trying to be chummy with Haggis, who isn’t at all interested at the moment (which is normal for a Cairn Terrier, because they can be rather aloof).
Here’s Haggis doing a little local shopping with us. :)
Whoodle’s have a very easy-going nature, so personable, they stare you down, deep into your soul, especially when they want something.
Alder the Entertainer Whoodle Puppy will make a wonderful family dog, because he loves to snuggle, and did I mention how adorable he is?
CUTENESS to the 100th degree. We’re remodeling and our guest bathroom and look who crawled into the old sink?
Alder has already tried out our Reverie bed, but only for a few minutes (HA).
Actually, he sleeps in a crate next to my bed. From the day we brought him home, at 8 weeks, he has slept through the night.
He wakes up FEISTY and ready to go! No pee or poop in the crate. Amazing.
We are still potty training, of course, and until he gets his shots, he cannot go out of the house (or at least outside of our arms). Or, at least he can’t be around other dogs or animals.
Some say the best part about their Whoodle is that they are not excessive barkers!
And they love to explore!
It’s been 13 years since we’ve had a puppy. Haggis was a tyrant. If you know anything about Cairn Terriers, they are wild and crazy (and aloof). Some of our friends have said that Haggis is stuck-up, but we know he loves us. He just doesn’t show it very well. Cairns can live up to 18-20 years, but we wanted to get a puppy now, so Haggis would adjust.
Haggis will always be TOP DOG.
But, Alder is #2 TOP DOG, at least for now.
I’d love to hear if you’ve heard of the “Whoodle” breed, and what you think of Alder?
Hello! Can you please give us your breeder info! Thank you
Hi, Ashley. Google whoodles in Oregon!
Will you please share your breeder info? I like Alder because he favors that Wheaten breed but has poodle too! We’ve been looking but haven’t found a breeder we are interested in yet.
Yes, I just sent you an email Nicole!
I just found you photos of your Whoodle. I’ve been looking for a reputable breeder in Southern California but the one breeder I’ve found has widely varying reviews some really good and some really bad. Does anyone know of a truly reputable breeder within driving distance of Los Angeles. I just wouldn’t want to “ship” a puppy. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer. I feel quite certain that a mini Whoodle is the perfect dog for me!
I have not heard of any in LA area but if I do, I’ll save your email Debra!
Thank you or even anyone within a day-long drive. Your Alder is adorable and I look forward to enjoying my very own Whoodle in the future. Thank you for the quick response!
We have a new Whoodle puppy! and I would agree that they are one of the most amazing, adorable, sweet, outgoing dogs. My Charlie is perfect for our family and just makes us laugh so much!! I love hearing that others have this breed as well since it is not very well known.
Chloe–so fun! We so agree! :) We joke around, every day is a “whoodle world.” Thanks for sharing!
So, so cute!!! Had never heard of a Whoodle thanks for sharing?
I want to kiss him on the nose. ADORABLE, where can I get one?
Right? They are not overbred, so check your area to see if there is a local breeder! :)
A Wheaten is already hypoallergenic in its pure form. Why would you make that a selling point for your whoodle?
Because a Whoodle is a Wheaten Terrier and Poodle mix, and some people want to know this up front (may not do the research), so it for sure is a selling point! :)
We have a Mini-Whoodle named Jazzy. She is sweet and funny. Although both parent dogs were blond, All 9 pups were coal black. Adorable. We got her from Barb at Old McDoodle Farms. She loves other dogs and kids. She’s very gentle and wonderful!
Alder would love to mee Jazzy (what a cute name, Linda!). One of the pups in the litter was coal black, so adorable! :)
He is absolutely adorable! We’ve been puppy hunting and I haven’t heard of a woodle before. We’ve been looking at s noodles some. We have a rescue carrin terrier we believe to be about 10. I may contact you regarding more information.
Yes, Clarice! Contact me, and so happy to hear you have a rescue Cairn! We adore our 13-year old Cairn, Haggis. He’s doing pretty well with Alder, sometimes getting irritated with him. Very much a protector! :)
We have a schnoodle (schnauzer & poodle). Great no shedding and sweetest dog in the world. And she was a rescue dog – so always check your animal shelters too.
Yes, our very first dog, Conrad Lewis, was from a shelter. Your Schnoodle sounds adorable!
What a little charmer! So adorable!
Thank you Kathy! :)
Your puppy is Toooooo cute!!
I have never heard of this breed before-,- he’s just adorable.
Thank you! We are so in love :)
He is adorable and I love his name! It will be fun watching Alder grow up! Have fun!
Thanks Jamie! xo
I’d never heard of them until yours and he is sooooo cute! I’m in love!
You’ll have to meet him! :)
OMG! I soooo love your puppy. Would you give me some info? I would love to see about getting one as I lost BOTH of my “kids” within 4 months of each other-a combo of old age and arthritis/cancer, so it’s been hard and very lonely. As my husband and I are getting a bit older (not ancient, though-LOL) I was thinking a smaller dog might be nice. Anyway, have you got some sort of connection that I might contact? Thanks so much for your time. I love the new baby.
Hi, Jackie. The first thing I recommend is to google them where you live and see if they are bred there? You’ll find some web sites. If you’re lonely, and need a pup right now, it’s also a great thing to get a rescue dog. Have you thought of that? Contact your local humane society! And thank you, we are so in love with this little guy!
he’s adorable Sandy!!! What size will he be when grown??
He’s a medium, so he’ll get to be 35-38 pounds. :)
