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.
