All about the Breeds & Coat Textures:

"Malshipoo" mom was Ellie.

        The "Malshipoo"

Malshipoos are known for their sweet temperments. They adapt well to apartment living or full-time indoor living. However, they still enjoy time in the outdoors, whether it's taking long, leisurely walks or playing fetch, frisbee, and other games. An important feature of a Malshipoo puppy is that they love being lap dogs. If you're looking for something to cuddle up with and love, this is a breed for you. These puppies have very playful personalities, as they are very fast and friendly. They make wonderful additions to fun families.

Malshipoo puppies tend to be easier to train than many other dogs. They don't need as much attention as well. You can expect easy training, especially if they're around older kids and most animals that they get accustomed to. An excellent choice for severe allergy sufferers. 


       The  "Cockapoo"

Cockapoos are the original crossbreed and have been around for over 50 yrs. They are known for its pleasant temperament, loyalty and patience. Cockapoos are outgoing and eager for human companionship and attention. The Cockapoo will grow unhappy if it is left alone too often.The Cockapoo's kind disposition makes it an ideal family pet. The Cockapoo is gentle and loving with children and enjoys the company of all living things, including other dogs and pets. The coat type of the Cockapoo will vary as characteristics are inherited from both parents. There may even be some variety within the same litter. The three possible coat types are a tight curly coat, a loose wavy coat and a straighter also known as a "smoothie" coat. Coats can change greatly the first year of most pups lives and can be straight the first few months and change to a curly coat by a year old. 


      The "Cavapoo"

The Cavapoo is affectionate, loyal, and friendly. They are good-natured, playful, and social. They do best with older, considerate children. They do well with dogs and non-canine pets. Cavapoo's will bark to announce visitors and out of the ordinary sounds. They are very family oriented and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. 
Depending on coat type, the Cavapoo requires regular brushing to prevent matting and tangling or professional clipping. It is important to keep the ears clean and the nails trimmed. Cavapoos must live inside a house and never be left outdoors for an extended period of time. 
The coat of the Cavapoo may be curly or soft, silky, and slightly wavy. Generally speaking the Cavapoo is promoted by breeders as being hypoallergenic due to their parents' heritage of having a reputation for being hypoallergenic, meaning this breed can live in a house and be tolerated by owner's who are sensitive to dander (dead skin cells that are shed by all dogs including people) from a dog's coat. Some people may certainly find they may still react with an allergy when being around a Cavapoo, but many report the reaction to be significantly less severe and more tolerable. Any breeder of a crossbreed dog like Cavapoos should not guarantee their puppies will be hypoallergenic, but should state this breed may carry hypoallergenic traits from its parents' heritage. Early socialization and obedience training are recommended. 

The "Maltipoo"

The Malti Poo is an intelligent, loving dog. The mix of Maltese and Poodle usually produces a lively, playful dog devoted to its family. The Malti Poo loves to play or curl up on the couch for a nap. Malti Poos require frequent human companionship. The Malti Poo can get along well with dogs and other pets if socialized when young, but it is somewhat territorial. Malti Poos may be wary of strangers and are highly protective of their family. Malti Poos get along very well with children, but should be supervised around young children to ensure they are treated respectfully.  They can have wavy or curly  coat and occasionally even straight though this is more of a rarity. Both coats are non shedding.  This breed is an excellent choice for severe allergy sufferers.  The Malti Poo can have most of its exercise needs met by indoor play and activities, but it also enjoys walks or playtime in the yard. The Malti Poo is an excellent breed for apartment life.
