I think either dog is great. I had a mini poodle that i found in a shelter. He was a great dog. I lived in a small place when i had him and he was indoors a lot of the time. Good luck on which ever dog you choose.
If you are looking for a purebred. Do your research and find a good breeder, or check out your local breed rescues. If you are looking for a mix, check your local shelters, there are oodles of doodles sitting in shelters that would love to have a good home.

I would definatly try a rescue or shelter first. Alot of doodle breeds may not be non-shedding like the pure poodle. It just depends on how they are mixed. All of them tend to have good personalities, and need to be groomed reg. Good luck in your search.
