Overview
The Papoo, also called the Papipoo, is created by the crossing of two breeds: Papillon and Poodle. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs" and have become popular companions.
Character
Small but sturdy, the Papoo typically possesses distinctive facial features. They may have the trademark "butterfly" ears of the Papillon or the long ears of the Poodle. They should be lively, bold, and hardy.
Temperament
The Papoo is affectionate, loving, and loyal. They are family oriented and do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. Boredom or loneliness will lead to destructive behavior. Papoo's do best in a home with older, considerate children. They are not recommended for homes with other dogs but will do okay with non-canine pets they have been raised with. The Papoo is suspicious of strangers and will alert their family to visitors and out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
Depending on coat type, the Papoo requires frequent brushing to prevent matting and tangling or professional clipping. Bathing should be done when necessary using a mild shampoo. Dental hygiene is important to prevent early tooth loss. The Papoo may be prone to such health issues as PRA, ear infections, anemia, skin problems, luxating patella, and sensitivity to anesthesia.
Coat
The coat of the Papoo may be long and silky, long and slightly wavy, or very curly.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Papoo 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 Papoo is well suited for apartment living. They are relatively active indoors and should have a wide variety of safe toys to keep them occupied. Papoo's enjoy securely leashed walks, family play sessions, and off-lead play time in a securely fenced yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Papoo 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.

Ears One ear has flopped down and other sticks out - What causes this in the Papoo breed?

The Papillon's ears turn up, while the Poodle's ears are floppy. That is what would cause that.

You should have been more responsible and gotten your dog fixed. As well, you need to have her examined by a vet every couple of weeks! GET HER INTO THE VET ASAP!
