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.

Does your Papoo bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
The coat of the Papoo may be long and silky, long and slightly wavy, or very curly.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Papoo puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Papoo Questions

One ear has flopped down and the 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.

How do I get both of my yappy Papoo dogs to stop barking without putting bark collars on them?

Keep them on a leash and by your side a lot.

What is the average lifespan of a Papoo?

I would like the answer to that too. My Papoo is about 5-6 years old and now he just has yelps when he is all by himself. I know why he yelps, but I still worry, is it something I need to take him to the vet for because its hit and miss on when he yelps?

You should get another pet to keep him company.

My Papoo is pregnant and I am looking for more information. She is about to be due please respond ASAP.

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!
