A Cockapoo is a designer dog. It is the cross of an American Cocker Spaniel or English Cocker Spaniel and a poodle. Cockapoos combine the outgoing, loving personality of the Cocker Spaniel and the intelligence of the Poodle. They are very agile.
Cockapoos are not suitable to be left alone for long periods as they frequently suffer from separation anxiety.
They may inherit the characteristics of either or both their parents.
Cockapoos also vary in color-Black, Buff, Apricot, Brown (from light to dark), Sable, Cream and White. Cockapoos can also be one solid color or can have complex markings.
Because they have the Poodle coat and do not shed they are considered hypoallergenic.
Cockapoos are 10 to 15 inches tall and weigh 12 to 20 pounds.
