If you haven’t heard of an Irish Doodle, you won’t forget them in a hurry once you’ve set eyes on these beautiful dogs.
For those who are unaware of these upbeat designer dogs, an Irish Doodle is a cross between an Irish Setter and a Poodle.
These fluffy pooches were bred to work as service and therapy animals, helping those in need but with an allergy to dogs.
While it’s unclear when the first Irish Doodle was bred, these sociable dogs rose to prominence in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
These medium-sized dogs can come in a variety of different colors: red, apricot, black and white.
While there is a lot of information readily available about pedigree dogs online, learning more about Irish Doodles can be challenging.
However, Instagram is a great tool for dog lovers who are thinking about an Irish Doodle as a pet and want to learn more about the cross breed.
We’ve put together a list of 12 Irish Doodles that you need to follow on Instagram to get an insight into these wonderful dogs.
