The Springer Doodle also referred to as "Sproodles."

General Appearance: The Springer Doodle is a designer breed, bred from an English Springer Spaniel and a Poodle. The Springer Doodle can tend towards one parent or the other in appearance.

Proportion & Symmetry: No feature being in such prominence from either excess or lack of quality that the animal appears poorly proportioned.

 

Substance: Most Springer Doodles weigh in at 28 to 60 pounds, and range in height from 16 to 22 inches. Springer Doodles lifespan can be anywhere from 10 to 15 years.

Head: Head quite sturdy and muscular with a fairly long muzzle and medium to long ears. The eyes are dark and alert.
 

Body: Rather short and very compact, broader at the rump than at the shoulders, ribs well sprung and brisket deep and capacious. Neither slab-sided nor barrel-chested. The loin is very stout and gently arched.

 

Forequarters: Shoulders well laid back and narrow at the points. The forelegs dead straight with plenty of bone. The measurements from the withers to the elbow and from the elbow to the ground are practically the same

 

Coat: They have double-layered, thick coats which can be medium to long in length.

Color: Common colors may include black, brown, white, cream, or combinations of these.
 

Gait: The front and rear assemblies must be equivalent in angulation and muscular development for the gait to be smooth and effortless. Shoulders which are well laid-back to permit a long stride are just as essential as the excellent rear quarters that provide driving power. Seen from the side, the Springer exhibits a long, ground-covering stride and carries a firm back, with no tendency to dip, roach, or roll from side to side.

Temperament: Timid yet playful and obedient. Eager to please, quick to learn.
