Because of the rise in popularity of low-shedding dogs, Poodles are often used in the creation of Designer Dogs and this pooch is a classic example of that cross-breeding. The Jack-A-Poo brings together the Miniature Poodle which dates back to 16th century Germany and the Jack Russell terrier that hales from mid-1800’s England.
