Winnie, the dog that started AwesomeDoodle

Winnie is not a just another dog who makes beautiful puppies.  She’s exceptional, and so are her puppies. No, she probably wouldn’t win any blue ribbons in the show ring, but that’s not why we make puppies with her. Like every dog you see on our website, she is our family pet.  Winnie is the dog that got it all started.  We decided to make puppies because of her loving temperament, her agility, and her beautiful smile. She’s the dog that got us hooked. Winnie’s last litter will be in December of 2017. Her puppies are so desirable, we have people waiting specifically for her pups. Her puppies are known to be some of the smartest and most affectionate dogs we have.
Winnie loves to fetch her Frisbee, jump through a hoop, and chase chipmunks.  Winnie is demanding with attention and hugs.  When you talk to Winnie, she looks you in the eyes, tilts her head and listens.  She has never met a stranger and loves everyone, including kids. She knows a variety of tricks and enjoys learning more.  She is not a “protective” dog, but will let you know if someone touches the front door knob.
Winnie is a standard size Aussie, 53lbs and 18″ tall.  Winnie is ASDR registered, and has her certification on her hips and joints, by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals.  She is fully clear with no genetic defects, including PRCD.

Winnie’s Puppies were raised by:

Tom’s AussieDoodle Puppies In Kentucky

I raise my Mini AussieDoodle Puppies in Louisville, KY, which is perfect location if you’re looking for AussieDoodles in Nashville, Alabama or Mississippi. I have a passion for AussieDoodles because they are the perfect combination of the intelligence and loyalty of the Australian Shepherd, plus the intelligence and happy go lucky attitude of the poodle. I only have two girls, Poochie and Winnie. They will stay with me forever. I have a few other guardian dogs (who live in their forever homes) and they come to my home to have their AussieDoodle puppies. I raise my [read more]

Winnie’s Past Puppies:


"It’s been one full week with Digby O’Dog and we couldn’t be happier with the way he is coming along. The drive home was fabulous!! Even though it was a 9 hour drive he did GREAT!  No mess in the car, slept well, and was just a joy." Digby is a Black Tri-color AussieDoodle. That means he has black, lots of white, and also Copper.   Congratulations to Sally and Brad in North Carolina.

"He's the chillest dog. I think socializing him as much as we did at the beginning made a HUGE difference. And now the biting and jumping and barking stopped he's a dream boat. So loving and sweet. He is a HIT everywhere we go. We get stopped at least 10 times a day no joke. It’s wild. He had his first doggy sleepover this weekend. He’s depressed she’s gone today.   And he’s mastered the bells. I honestly Gave up on them and one day he rang it, I was so excited and now it’s every time he needs to go out. It has made my life so much easier." Whitney and Fransisco

RemDog: Nov 2017 D.O.T.M.

"Remy is very honored to be AwesomeDoodle of the Month! He is a pretty great doodle, but I am biased. Here are some Remy updates: Likes -- Sojos puppy treats, of-leash hikes (hikes in general and being off leash in general also..), other Aussies (he has a special bond with them), morning snuggles, belly rubs, the snow and catching snowballs, running with friends or after a ball at the dog park, giving kisses (he is a compulsive licker..), licking the dirty dishes in the dishwasher, learning new tricks (we are currently working on "give me a hug" where he puts [read more]


Dante is a tri-color beautiful boy AussieDoodle. Look closely, and you will see TINY bits of copper coming out on his cheeks and eye brows. He is the only tri-color Winnie has ever had. Congrats to Katrina and family in California on this striking guy.

Sadie Woo

Sadie Woo is a blue merle female mini aussiedoodle with TONS of copper all over. WOW, she is amazing. Congrats to Lisa and Richard in Colorado on this sweet girl.

Luli Parti AussieDoodle

Luli is a "parti" AussieDoodle, with blue merle as well. She also has great face and ear color. What a little angel she is. Can't wait to see how she looks when she gets older. Her coat is going to be gorgeous. Congrats to Barb and family in Washington on this cutie.

Ozzie: the black tuxedo mini Aussiedoodle puppy

"Bentley is AMAZING.  He took right to our girls and family.  He did not have an accident the entire car ride. Made it home and we took him in the yard and he did his business. He played with us in the yard for a while and relaxed with us for a bit in the evening. Only 1 small accident  (and it is my fault bc I took my eyes off him while getting ready to take him out). He is an AMAZING dog and we are lucky to have him in our family. I will be sure to read ALL of these tips and appreciate any advice you may have.   The trainer is scheduled to come tomorrow. We are absolutely in love!" Congrats to Justine and Family in Connecticut on this cutie.

Bluez: the blue merle mini AussieDoodle Puppy

"He is a super good boy! Almost potty trained, sleeps from 10 or 10:30 to 7:00-7:30 without getting up and no accidents in his crate, can sit, stay, come, fetch, drop, and touch! Couldn't ask for a better dog, although he is definitely a puppy! We have spent a ton of time working with him these past three weeks, but it's paying off!" Congrats to Tracy and Phil in Indiana.

Thunda: the blue merle mini AussieDoodle Puppy

"Thunda is doing wonderful! At 12 weeks she's just over 11 lbs and is doing very well with potty training. She sleeps through the night in her crate and can hold it for a max of 4 hours outside the crate. We are so happy with the progress she has made. She's a champion with sit, down, come, and stay. She does really well with loose leash walking, but would much rather run. I took her on a mile walk the other day that turned into mommy getting a running workout. She is also a VERY talkative dog. Makes about 5 different noises and especially barks when she is super excited to see other dogs! We are working on controlling that a bit more, however. I'd like her to be able to do troll her impulses as she gets older so we are focusing on that more now." Thunda is a gorgeous blue merle girl! Congrats to Kyle and Danielle in Massachusetts!

We are so happy with Mac

"You guys did a terrific job of making the transition from your home to mine as easy as possible! Thanks for being patient with us as we worked the kinks out! It's obvious you have the puppies best interest at heart!" Congrats to Lisa W in Mississippi.

Bold And Beautiful Beyla

"I can't tell you how wonderful it is to come in the back door, see Beyla snug in her crate and staying there, quiet and content, while I put things away, go to the bathroom, or just have a quiet moment to myself. Then, when I'm ready, I let her out, let her stretch, give her a good rub and then take her outside. It is pure heaven!!! I swear, if she could only do one thing, this is the thing I'd want her to do. As luck would have it, though, she does this and soooo many other wonderful things. It's amazing to see how much she loves to please us. Wow. Wow. Wow!" Congratulations to Karen & Dean

Easton Red Bi AussieDoodle Boy

"Made it back to St. Louis! Drive was pretty smooth. 2 potty breaks, no car sickness, and no accidents. After a few challenging nights, last night was much better.  Easton has a lot of energy and I think we just weren't getting him tired enough.  We played with him in the backyard to the point of exhaustion and then some - we even just walked in circles around the backyard for a while and he followed us around the whole time.  By the time it was bedtime, he went in his crate (somewhat reluctantly), whined for about a minute and [read more]

Monroe: Red Tuxedo Aussie Doodle Puppy

"The journey we took from the time Winnie was pregnant to the time we picked up Monroe was awesome! We enjoyed watching the puppy cam. We felt so connected to Monroe. It was fun watching the puppies grow and interact. Our daughter has a puppy from Winnie's December 2015 litter. As we watched their Winnie grow we knew this was what we wanted a dog.  Monroe knows his name. Has learned to fetch and is becoming comfortable with his collar. He does well with his crate training. Monroe loves attention and has bursts of very high energy. He is so [read more]

AussieDoodle Puppy Quinn

"I thought it would be good to send some positive Quinn news! Other than her crazy biting bursts, she has adjusted really well to life in Chicago! EVERYONE loves her- from the pizza delivery guy to our friends and family. She is absolutely adorable. Her training is going well, she already knows her name, watch me, sit, down, follow me, and off (when she jumps on us or the furniture). Training her has been really fun and she learns so quickly!" Congrats to Alexzandra

Aria the Sweet and Petite AussieDoodle

"She was perfection from beginning to end of trip home. Tolerated plane and auto travel like a pro! She does really well in her carrier, which I use to take her in the car at this point because she is too small for her harness and car seat.  She would be content to have me carry her around most of the day... She does her business outside well, squats immediately after I say"go potty". She does love people. Her little tail wags like crazy when she meets someone new. I have taken to calling her my "chocolate cream puff". As [read more]

Awesome AussieDoodle Puppy Spotlight

Hello AwesomeDoodle fans!  We are thrilled to introduce the December 2015 AussieDoodle Spotlight.  Little Charley was picked by Courtney and Eric, in Chicago, IL.  When Charley was 5-6 weeks old, we had a feeling she was going to be a special dog.  She was a little more quiet then the rest of the dogs, and she had a great attention span.  Just four months later, little Charley is a star!  She's smart, she's adorable and she is one of the sweetest dogs.  Here is what Courtney and Eric have to say about Charley. "It’s hard to believe Charley is 5 [read more]

Rosie: Red Tuxedo AussieDoodle Puppy

  Rosie at 7 weeks old. Hello Awesome doodlers: Rosie Doodle came into her new home just two weeks ago.  I am so grateful for all the help, support, suggestions and love that came in the Rosie package.  You helped me out so much to prepare and make this transition as easy as possible.  From picking me up at the airport, to providing food and treats (I arrived with only an empty dog carrier and water bowl), to including her smelly blue towel that reminds her of home.  She is simply an amazing pup.  She rings the door bells to [read more]

Tilly: Red Merle AussieDoodle Puppy

  Don, Christy and family, from Orlando Florida hold their new red merle AussieDoodle Puppy, Tilly. What can we say about our experience with AwesomeDoodle to get our puppy Tilly…..AWESOME!! We knew that this was the puppy for us when we saw the care that they took in making sure his puppies were placed in the right home.   It truly showed his passion for these little wuppies.  After interviewing twice and sitting on the edge of our seats for a couple days we got the news that YES, we will be owners of one of Winnie’s new pups.   With [read more]

Max The Therapy Dog AussieDoodle

"We love our Max! He is smart, loving, FULL of energy and so cute. Max has 2 speeds:  0 or 100.  At 11 weeks there is nothing in between.  He is doing great on his leash and loves playing in the backyard. He also likes coming to work with me; the staff at my office adore him.  He sits and lays down on command, and is getting better at fetch all the time. We can't wait to continue to challenge him and to see what he will learn next. He has an important job in front of him -- bringing love and comfort to hospice patients.  Thank you, Awesomedoodle, for giving Max such a great start!"

Miss Daisy The Red Merle AussieDoodle

"Thanks for all the pictures and updates and such you have been amazing through this whole process and we will continue to refer you to all that ask about our Ms Daisy. "

Our little Winnie

"What can we say? She is the most adorable little thing we have ever seen! Our kids named her after mama (Winnie) since they have similar markings. She is so pretty! She is a very sweet girl and we are so impressed with her! We brought her home on Sunday with a short 2 hour ride to Bloomington Indiana. She sat on our daughter's lap and started to whine about half way home, we stopped, she pottied, and off we went. Wow! She also loves her crate and has been only whining for about 5 minutes at night and then she goes to sleep. We've been getting up about once in the night...it's not bad at all!!! We've been practicing her waiting patiently for treats and we give her an A+. Everyone that has stopped over to see her can't believe she knows how to do this already! We couldn't be more happy with our decision to go with Awesomedoodle. We just want to thank Tom for his love and passion for breeding healthy and happy Aussiedoodles! So impressed with the entire experience! Thank you again and we love our little Winnie. Jennifer and Aaron

Charley: Red merle AussieDoodle Puppy

Charley, going to her new forever loving home, with Courtney and Eric. We are so thankful to AwesomeDoodle’s Tom for our Charley.  From our first phone conversation, we knew that this experience would be different from other breeder options.  Tom took the time to interview us, and ensure that we were ready for a puppy, helped us understand the challenges of raising a puppy in an apartment, and shared more about the AussieDoodle breed.  We really appreciated that they took the time to make sure all of the puppies were going to loving and prepared homes. Tom was so [read more]

Bretta the Incredible Puppy

“Successful Arrival after driving 6 hours home. Three Stops, three outside pees. No car sickness or crying at all. She is now in the kitchen, exploring her new domain. All in all, the smoothest trip we could possibly have imagined. Thank you so much. We are thrilled with Bretta. She is going to be a great addition to our family and we promise to keep updates coming. We are quite certain we got an incredible Puppy.”
