Goldendoodles — dogs that are a cross between poodles and Golden Retrievers — are one of the most popular breeds available, but what you may not realize is that they come in three sizes: large standard, small standard and miniature. A miniature (or mini) goldendoodle is a cross between a toy poodle and a Golden Retriever. They usually weigh anywhere from 15 to 35 pounds and typically range from 13 to 20 inches tall. Aside from their more compact size, goldendoodles aren't much different from their larger counterparts. They have similar personalities and many of the same care requirements, which are important to learn about if you're considering adding a mini goldendoodle to your family.
