Information and Pictures

Coco the Poochis is laying on a bed on top of a colorful comforter

"Coco the Poochis is 1 year old in this picture. She is a perfect combination of highly intelligent and very eager to please, making her a fast learner and very easy to train. She knows all of the basic commands and about a dozen tricks already. Her coat silky and fluffy at the same time and is prone to tangles and matting. It requires daily grooming with a metal comb, but her small size and easygoing temperament make it an easy job. She is friendly to everyone, great with children, playful but laid back, all around a perfect pooch!"

The Crestepoo is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Chinese Crested and the Poodle. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Chinese Crestepoos (Chinese Crested / Poodle hybrid dogs)—"I have 3 Chinese Crested / Standard Poodle mixes who are littermates and were a surprise. Their names are Vixen, Veela and Vernon. There were 5 pups in all, although we only adopted three. All three are very different—different sizes, different amounts of hair, even different body shapes, but all three have something in common. They are super loving and smart."
