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.

Chi-poo's lifespan?

Whenever two or more breeds are combined, you must take the average life span of all breeds involved to help guesstimate what the average life span of your dog may be. The average life span of the Chihuahua is 10 - 18 years, while the average life span of the Miniature Poodle is 13 - 15 years. So we can guesstimate that the average life of a Chi-poo could be anywhere from 12 - 16 years.

Do Chipoo's shed and if so, how much?

Although the Chipoo, has poodle mixed into the breed, it does not mean that the dog does not shed. When you mix multiple dog breeds together, any pup can take characteristics from any of the breeds and leave others behind. Meaning some dogs shed and some do not. If they do shed, however, it would be at or lower than the level of a purebred Chihuahua, which is considered a 2 out of 5 on the shedding scale. Weekly brushing and a good diet will help reduce shedding.

Does a Chipoo shed much?

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.

I have a Chi Poo and his shedding is next to nothing. No hair on couch or bed and I do bathe him regularly other than once a month and brush him 2-3 times a week. But even once a week would be fine. Perfect for a person who has allergies to dogs and loves animals. I too have allergies to dogs and he does not bother me. Loves to play, great around kids, highly intelligent but very vindictive. If he feels you aren't giving him enough attention, he will act out. However, the breed is a great addition to anyone's family.

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.
