The Papipoo is a mixed breed dog, a cross between the Papillon and Poodle dog breeds. Affectionate, intelligent and active, this devoted little dog wants to be part of all family activities. They are considered “designer dogs”, so they are in high demand, which also means they are easily found in shelters or rescues. Please adopt if you want to add one of these puppies to your life. Remember, when you adopt, you save two lives: the one you take home and the one you make room for at the shelter.As a crossbreed of old world breeds known for their intelligence and athleticism, the Papipoo has it all, with brains and brawn, not to mention beauty. Although these dogs are active, their size fits well in any home, including small flats. Their sociability makes them a good fit for all types of families, as long as they receive round-the-clock attention. If you want a loving lap dog that can also be a Canine Olympics contender, this may be the perfect dog for you.
Papipoos are mixed breed dogs. Papipoo colours include white, black, cream, red, sable, apricot and grey. If Papipoos have the curly coat of Poodles, they are more allergy friendly. Papipoos do not need much maintenance, but benefit from a brushing a couple of times a week.Because Papipoos are toy-sized dogs, it is especially important that children and other pets learn to be gentle and cautious with them, as small dogs can more easily hurt themselves.Your Papipoo will need at least an hour of exercise a day, although most of this will be self-induced by running, jumping and playing around the house. Although they often like to be in charge, Papipoos get along very well with all kinds of animals. Their hunting instinct is more or less the same as that of dogs, so it is wise to supervise them when they are around smaller animals.
The exact history of the Papipoo is a mystery, but it is clear that it was part of the worldwide trend of creating Poodle mixes from the 1980s onwards, an effort to emphasise the Poodle’s intelligent and affectionate traits, as well as its hypoallergenic curly coat. As for the Papipoo’s parent breeds, the Poodle is one of the oldest breeds in the world: it began in Germany as a waterfowl hunting dog, but evolved into the breed of Poodle we know and love now in France. The Papillon is also an old world breed, dating back at least to the Renaissance era, when they were bred as lap dogs for noblewomen. “Designer dogs with these intentional mixes are still in high demand, which means they are also available for adoption from shelters, as not everyone who brings home a Papipoo – or any dog – ends up keeping them, unfortunately. If you want a Papipoo to be part of your life, opt for adoption.
