Is the Chihuahua / Poodle (Toy) Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Chi-Poo, Choodle, Chipoodle

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Chi-Poo is a cross between a pure Chihuahua and a pure Poodle, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This so-called designer hybrid is intended to create an apartment-sized toy that fits easily into many families.

Appearance / health:
Poodles come in three size varieties. Using a Toy Poodle in the mix gives you the greatest chance of getting the smallest possible Chi-Poo.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the Poodle in the mix brings a lot of natural intelligence. However, both the Poodle and the Chihuahua genes make for an extremely social animal, so you may do better to select another mix if no one will be at home for long hours during the day. Sometimes the Chihuahua DNA can make for a bossy little pet if you allow yourself to be manipulated by a cute face.
