If you’ve decided to adopt a Huskydoodle, congratulations! This amazing Doodle has a great personality, not to mention their stunning looks. But what about Huskydoodle’s size? How big does a Huskydoodle get? In this article, we’ll be answering all of your questions about Huskydoodle’s size and growth patterns. Let’s dig in!
The Husky Poodle mix combines the best features of two gorgeous purebred dogs – the Siberian Husky and Poodle. Also known as the Siberpoo or Huskypoo, the Huskydoodle is a highly intelligent pup who loves playtime and exercise more than anything. If you’re looking for an affectionate pup who will join you on hikes and adventures, the Huskydoodle might be the right dog for you!
Huskydoodle Size Predictions: How Big Does A Huskydoodle Get?
Any time we try to predict a Doodle’s full-grown size, we have to be ready for some unexpected surprises. As we’re combining two different breeds, we can’t exactly predict how a Huskydoodle puppy will turn out. Their looks, temperament, and size can take after either of the parents.
The easiest and most foolproof way to predict a Huskydoodle’s full-grown size is to first understand the parent pups. The Siberian Husky is a medium-sized dog who weighs around 35 to 60 pounds and is around 20 to 24 inches tall. Due to their size, they are most commonly crossed with a Standard Poodle. Additionally, Miniature Poodles can be used to achieve a smaller, Mini Huskydoodle.
But how big does a Huskydoodle get? As it’s a relatively new hybrid breed, there are no set Huskydoodle size standards. Even though the current data is estimated, it gives us a fairly good idea about what to expect.
Let’s have a look at the typical Huskydoodle size predictions for Mini and Standard Huskydoodle:
|Mini Huskydoodle||Standard Huskydoodle|
|Weight||15-35 pounds||35-60 pounds|
|Height||12-20 inches||20-25 inches|
|When Full-Grown?||11-13 months||12.5-16 months|
*A dog’s height is measured from their withers, which is the highest part of their shoulder blades.
As we can see from the Huskydoodle size chart above, there’s a quite noticeable difference between the Mini and Standard Huskydoodles. Minis usually weigh between 15 to 35 pounds and stand 12 to 16 inches tall at the shoulder. Standard Huskydoodles can weigh from 35 to 60 pounds and stand 20 to 25 inches tall at the shoulder.
F1 vs F1b vs F2b Huskydoodle
A Doodle’s generation can play a key role in their size. Let’s have a look at the possible Huskydoodle generations:
- An F1 or first-generation Huskydoodle has a Siberian Husky parent and a Poodle parent. (50% Siberian Husky, 50% Poodle)
- An F1b or first-generation backcross Huskydoodle has a Huskydoodle parent and an original breed parent – usually a Poodle. (25% Siberian Husky, 75% Poodle)
- An F1bb is a first-generation backcross backcross Huskydoodle that has an F1b Huskydoodle parent and a Poodle parent (12.5% Siberian Husky, 87.5% Poodle)
- An F2 or second-generation Huskydoodle has two F1 Huskydoodle parents. (50% Siberian Husky, 50% Poodle)
- An F2b Huskydoodle has an F2 Huskydoodle parent and a Poodle parent. (25% Siberian Husky, 75% Poodle)
- An F2bb Huskydoodle has an F2b Huskydoodle parent and a Poodle parent. (12.5% Siberian Husky, 87.5% Poodle)
- An F3 Huskydoodle or third-generation Huskydoodle is a hybrid of different Huskydoodles.
Based on that, we can see that with different generations, we can achieve either more or less control over the size and characteristics of a Huskydoodle puppy. For example, if we cross a Siberian Husky with a Miniature Poodle, it will most likely result in a smaller Huskydoodle. If we then cross that F1 Huskydoodle with a Miniature Poodle, ¾ of the mix has Miniature Poodle. As a result, we can expect the F1b Huskydoodle to be smaller in size.

Things To Keep In Mind
Additionally, keep in mind that your puppy’s diet, exercise, gender, and generation can all affect their size and growth. We recommend that you feed your puppy a specially formulated puppy food, as puppy formulas contain necessary nutrients a growing dog needs. Moreover, Huskydoodles tend to have very high energy levels. Therefore, in adulthood your pup might benefit from a formula for active dogs. Here you can check out our guides on the best Doodle puppy food, or learn more about how much you should feed your puppy.
Huskydoodle Size Charts & Growth Patterns
Like most dogs, Huskydoodles experience the fastest growth spurts in their first 6 months. After that, their growth will start to gradually slow down, until it plateaus at full adult weight around 1-1.5 years old. Depending on their estimated size, we can expect Huskydoodles to reach their full height around 10 to 12 months old. After reaching their full height, a Huskydoodle will most likely continue to gain a little bit more weight and girth.
We’ve created an interactive Huskydoodle size chart and growth calculator. Use this handy tool to predict your puppy’s adult weight, and track their growth into adulthood!
Standard Huskydoodles typically reach half their adult weight between 4.5 and 6 months old. Between 12 and 16 months old, your Siberpoo will likely reach their full adult weight.
To calculate your Huskydoodle’s potential adult weight, use this formula:
Mini Huskydoodles will most likely reach half their adult weight around 3.5 to 5 months old. By 11 to 13 months old, you can expect your pup to reach their full adult weight.

In conclusion, the Huskydoodle is a beautiful mix of the Siberian Husky and Poodle whose energy levels are hard to match. If you enjoy an active lifestyle and can’t wait to share it with a pet, a Huskydoodle pup can be a great addition to your family. They’re goofy and playful, and can be gentle with kids and other pets. Above all, Huskydoodles love their humans and crave companionship. We hope our Huskydoodle size guide is a helpful resource.
