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?

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

If you put a chi poo in a doggie life jacket is swimming okay? How long does it take for them to stop biting? Is there any way to train or teach a chi poo to stay like in one space (for example we have a golden retriever and she will run around in the yard and wont run away is this ever possible for a chi poo? Will the chi poo be good with our golden retriever? Thanks!
