Dear I Love My Cockapoo Members,

My name is Amy. I have a husband named Mike. Two daughters named Heather and Laurel. And a roommate(Who I roomed with during college) named Lisa. Lisa lives with us because we promised each other we'd live together for the rest of our lives, married or not.

I am a certified Vet and so is Mike.

Our daughters have been begging for puppies ever since they could talk. But we firmly said no. 2 reasons A) My husband was still in Vet College B) I was still in Vet College.
But now Mike and I are out of college and ready for puppies.

We have been thinking of getting Cockapoos because 1) We've heard they don't shed 2) They range from 10-20pds, which is perfect for our family.

So we'll be checking this site out and HOPEFULLY, finding a couple puppies for our family :)

Signed, Amy

They can and do shed. 'Lo doesn't, but some do. Even as much as a normal cocker. Being a cockapoo means it MIGHT not shed. If you get a cockapoo that's a few generation in, all of the past cockapoo parents being non shedders, then you might be safe.

most are inside the 20 -30 range, 10 pounds is considered small and is harder to get, not the norm around here at least.

Don't get puppies, get a pup. Two or three are MUCH harder to raise.

These are links for getting more then one pup.

Just wondering, why did you introduce yourself again?
