Cockapoo puppies for sale.
The cockapoo hybrid has been around since the 1950’s. They have become known as amazing family pets over this time period and known for their great temperaments and overall healthy long lives. They are an extremely popular family dog, highly recommended by vets as well as trainers. The cockapoo is so versatile in personality that they can do well in a single person home as well as a busy family home. They can also do just as well in an apartment as a large roaming farm-type property. The trick is to find the personality of the puppy that is best suited to your home.

Sizes of Cockapoo Puppies
Cockapoos can come in various sizes, depending on the type of poodle they are bred with. There are three main poodle sizes:
Poodle Measured at Withers (Shoulder Height)
- Toy: under 10 inches
- Mini: 10-15 inches
- Standard: over 15 inches
The size of the cockapoo will also depend on the mix of the parents. When they are a first generation breeding, meaning a purebred poodle to a purebred Cocker Spaniel, the average can be closer to a 15lb adult, up to 45lb adult and everywhere in between. This is because the size and weight of each parent will be taken into account, from a toy poodle that may weigh under 10lbs, to a standard poodle who is likely to weigh closer to 60lbs (and up).
You can also have a cockapoo bred from a pure Cocker Spaniel parent to a cockapoo, or a pure poodle bred to a cockapoo. With these second generation crossings, the height, weight and hair types of the resulting cockapoo puppy can vary even more greatly.
What is the average weight for many cockapoo puppies? 18-25lbs is the most common for us, being always a first generation cross.
Most cockapoo puppies will come with docked tails, as this is the breed standard and responsible breeders will dock the tails to follow this. The poodle and Cocker Spaniel both have docked tails according to their breed standards, so it follows that cockapoo puppies would have the same.
Colours of Cockapoo Puppies
Cockapoo puppies can come in such a large range of colours. They can be black, white, cream, grey, brown or red and any shade of each. They can also come in parti colours, which means they can have two or three colours in “patches”.
Hair Types of Cockapoos
The hair of the cockapoo can be as straight as the Cocker Spaniel to as curly as the poodle, and anywhere in between. Most first generation breedings seem to land somewhere in the middle with a nice wavy coat. The curlier the hair (more poodle-like) usually tends to have lower shedding and is best suited to those with allergies. Usually the straighter the hair (more Cocker-like) leads to heavier shedding and is not necessarily good for those suffering from allergies, or who do not wish to clean up shedding hair.
Health of the Cockapoo
Due to the cross of the Cocker Spaniel and the poodle, most cockapoos tend to be overall very healthy. A few health concerns from the purebred parents can potentially be passed down to the cockapoo puppies. Luxating patellas (loose kneecaps) is one potential health issue. Eye issues are possible in the purebreds, as well as ear infection issues common more to the floppier ears of the Cocker Spaniel. Overall the cockapoo is healthier due to hybrid vigor of crossing two different breeds. Cockapoos are known to have a life span of 15 years and higher.
