Overview
The Chi-poo, also known as the Poochi, is created by the crossing of two breeds: Chihuahua and Poodle. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs" and are not as popular as many of the other crosses.
Character
The ideal Chi-poo is small in stature, agile, and possess a lively expression. They may have the large erect ears of the Chihauhua or the long ears of the Poodle. The Chi-poo should be well-proportioned, stout, and sturdy.
Temperament
Affectionate, loving, and devoted, the Chi-poo will typically form a close attachment to one particular family member. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time and will become destructive if bored or lonely. They are not recommended for homes with children under ten years of age. They do will with dogs and non-canine pets they have been raised with. Chi-poo's are suspicious of strangers and will alert their family to visitors or out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
Depending on coat type, the Chi-poo requires frequent brushing or professional clipping. Bathing should be done when necessary. The Chi-poo is prone to such health issues as slipped stifle, PRA, epilepsy, ear infection, and skin conditions.
Coat
The coat of the Chi-poo may be curly, smooth, long or a combination of the three.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Chi-poo may be difficult to housebreak. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
The Chi-poo is well suited for apartment living provided they are sufficiently exercised and mentally stimulated. They enjoy securely leashed walks, family play sessions, and off-lead play time in a securely fenced yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Chi-Poo - Chipoo puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Does a Chipoo shed much?

1 Comment

Anonymous

All dogs shed. But the Poodle or any mix with Poodle in it will shed less then what is considered a 'normal' shedding dog. To answer your question, no, they do not shed very much. But like all dogs, the amount of shed a dog does will depend on diet, health, and how much it is groomed.

A grain-free, high quality dog food is the best food for your dog. Several brands such as Now, Go! and Merrick have a 'small bites' brand for small dogs.

The Chi-Poo is a mixture between a Chihuahua/Poodle cross. The Black Labrador is considered a medium to large breed of dog, while the Chi-Poo is considered a small to toy breed of dog. People should not be mistaking her for anything near a Labrador.

The Chi-Poo can be a good family dog, but please remember, they are a very small dog. They can be injured very easily, so they should not be handled by small or inexperienced children.

I had someone tell me that chipoos only have black noses.... her is red like her body. Was i lied to when I bought her or can they have red noses? Her mother was an apricot toy poodle and father was a black Chihuahua or so they say. Oh yes and her eyes are also red in color. She matches her name Ginger

That sounds like she took a unique mixture of genes! The apricot color and nose seems to be poodle and the nose is a chi trait. The chipoo does not just have black nose and eyes, although it is most common.

The crate I got my chipoo was sizable considering he was small. It could probably suit a golden retriever pup... my thinking was I really don't like crates in the first place but bc he was not fully trained I couldn't let him wander the house while I was at school... so I got a bigger one so he had a little room.

My chipoo used to do that too! lol Puppies love to bite and although some people may not like my method, it worked... every time he would bite I would say NO! No biting... Eventually I put pennies in a soda bottle and would shake it which would scare him and say no biting... sometimes a light flick on the nose, followed by no biting. He eventually stopped and if he would bite I would say! No biting or are you biting and he would stop... it took maybe a couple of months? He was smart and once again puppies do bite. You just have to condition them to stop and be consistent!

Chi Poo's get between 2 and about 15 pounds. There is no standard set yet due to the wide variety of the crossbreed. Depends on the parent dogs.

My chipoo (with a little white diamond as well!) was also very black his color changed a bit.. As he got older the black became a dull black, the head on his hair was almost whiteish and gray... and he had some white, grayish hairs show up on the rest of his body. This happened within his first year and continued. Even though I loved the black I thought it gave him so character! People said he looked like Einstein : ) Have fun with your chipoo

We aren't sure if more are coming, but if they do, how should we take care of it? What are we suppose to do? Obviously, she didn't take care of it correctly so how can we make sure the other puppies will last? She had one last night, and one sometime during the day today. We really need to know what to do. Should we put her in a vet so they can watch her? No one is home from 8:30am-4:30pm. She's alone. We don't want her to have another baby while we aren't home and it die. We really need help! Please!

Some dogs naturally have a stronger maternal instinct and just know what to do. Others it just takes a little time. Taking her to the vet might be a good idea, they have experience with new mamas. Otherwise, lock her in a room by herself and let her figure out what they are. :-) sounds strange but it works. Just set her up with something soft she can lay on and some water, then check on her every once in a while to make sure delivery is going well. Remember that its natural and she really doesn't need help as long as she is not physically having problems. When the pups are born touch them as little as possible. Your scent can effect whether she accepts the puppies as hers. It's ok to touch them after she has cleaned them up and had a couple of cuddle time. Good luck!

Would a playpen with lots of toys, food, water, pee pads, and a bed be alright to leave the little guy at home for 6-7 hours? This is my only concern of school. But coming home I'd be able to play with him and give him lots of attention. I normally do not go into my studies or homework until 10-11pm anyways. The little guy would probably be asleep. He will be in my care and responsibility so I want the best for him.

chipoos are very little lively pets they need to be entertained or they will be bored and possibly try and bite through your playpen so you must provide lots of toys.

I used to do that with my chipoo... I would be in school and my parents would be at work. He would pace pretty much most of the time we were gone waiting for us to get back, poop and then pace in the poop. I'd have to clean it every day, it took him forever to learn to poop in a corner so he wouldn't walk in it. But he finally was totally potty trained so we could leave him inside the house, with paper some where in case he just couldn't hold it...

The other night, she was sleeping on my bed,and i heard her crying in her dream..when she woke up she came into the bathroom (which i was in) and had a toy (that i have never seen her carry around before) and was whinning.Since then she has done nothing but cry and carry around her toy. She is perfectly fine when i am holding her or if she is right underneath my feet. She still plays and fetches her toys when we throw them. She also continues to get horrible ear-infections it seems everytime i give her a bath and it is hard to get rid of them (I have meds for it). Any suggestions to what could've happened to her?

This sounds just like when each of my girls got ear infections, or just ear pain after eating milk products. They were okay during the day, but lying down increased the pressure in their ears, and it was so painful they could not sleep. What finally helped was chamomile tea bags, suggested by a holistic doctor. You dip the tea bag in boiled water, then squeeze it out and shake it several times to cool it down so it's still warm but not too hot for the skin. Then you hold it to the ear for about 5 minutes. I don't know if the heat gets the gunk inside moving and releases the pressure or the chamomile soothes the pain, but this really works! I've used it many times with my girls when the ear pain kept them awake, and after the tea bags, they often fell right to sleep. Is there any way to avoid getting water in her ears while you are bathing her?

I just recently adopted a chipoo from the Humane Society and he is good with the kids but every now and then he gets in a mood. He has jumped on and growled at my 6 year old just for walking in to the room. He also goes crazy when we have guests and we have to end up putting him in his kennel. We have only had his about a month and are putting a stop to his behavior with some training from Bark Busters. He is 5 years old so it may take some time to break his bad behaviors but he is worth every cent. He is a sweet loving dogs who loves his family and loves to be cuddled!
