What Do You Call an Irish Setter and Poodle Mix?

An Irish setter and poodle mix is known as an "Irish doodle" or an "Irish doodle setter," depending upon the kennel. As with other mixed-breed dogs, the traits of the Irish doodle are difficult to predict due to the wide variety of genes it may inherit from its parent breeds.

The Irish setter is a medium-sized, gangly dog that can reach 28 inches in height at the shoulder and weigh up to 75 pounds. Three different size varieties of poodle exist: toy, miniature and standard. Both the poodle and the Irish setter are known for their intelligence and affectionate natures, indicating that an Irish doodle is likely to inherit these qualities.
