Hello I just joined in hopes of finding out more about the Cockapoo breed.
I am looking to get a puppy soon and am very interested in a cockapoo but wanted to learn as much as I can about them first.

I'd really appreciate any and all the info you all can share with me about the breed.
Your experiences with yours and any good informative web sites, any other groups or lists etc on them would be Awesome.

Also if any of you know of a good breeder to recommend in the Panhandle of Fl area which would include parts of Al and GA as I am closer to them than the southern parts of Fl.

Thanks so much I look forward to being on here.
I will be lurking around and checking out old post and will probably have lots of questions in the future so be talking to you all then.
Thanks
mrh
Hope Everyone has a Wonderful Long Weekend.

hey welcome, feel free to ask anything you want, someone will have an answer for you.

for breeders check out breedersonline, pet4homes, epupz

do you know what kind of cockapoo you are interested in American/English (show or working) cocker cross Toy/Mini poodle, boy or girl, do you have a colour in mind.


do you have any alergys in the family that mean you need to be sure they arent going to react to the pup. have you spent any time with a cockapoo.

quote --do you know what kind of cockapoo you are interested in American/English (show or working) cocker cross Toy/Mini poodle, boy or girl, do you have a colour in mind.

Okay wow I didn't even know there was so many choices. Wow I have already learned more. I'll have to check all that out.
Is there any differences in the American/English?
I just want a loving pet honestly.
I kind of like the two colored ones rather than just the buff colored. Maybe even a black one.
Boy or girl , that was going to be one of my questions if there is any differences in male and females.
Also any differences in the toy or mini poodle crosses?
Also I was seeing where some breeders breed a poodle and a cocker and some others use 1 or both cockapoo(s) to breed.
Whats the differences in these?

NO I have never been around a cockapoo the main reason I am trying to find out info from you guys that actually live with them and know first hand all about them. I think they are cute and have liked them for some time.

Thanks

the americans are generaly smaller than the english even more so if crossed with a toy poodle, the amaricans generaly have the clasic "teddy bear" face as the american cocker has a shorter muzle than the english who have a longer sleeler face.

i have three english minis and an american mini. you do see subtle xifferences in their apearence, the muzzle is shorter and my american is smaller than two of my english show girls but the same hight as my english working. we have a hight thread and a thread with cockappos next to cans sl you can visualy see the hight difference

girls v boy is a personal thing, i dont thing their has ever been a boy dog in my family, gran had girl poodles,cocker and caviler, mum had girl cockers collie and cockerXcaviler.

coulurs can change my buff/blond girl was apricaut when we baught her. i think we have a then and now thread on the forum that shows cockapoos as puppies and how they changed in coat and colour as they got older.
F1 is cockerXplodle F2 is F1cockapooX F1cockapoo (can have throw backs in thd litter that look like cockers and shed like cockers) F2b is (correct if wrong) F1 cockapoo X poodle 3/4 poodle so pups will be very curly.

F2 can presumably throw back to poodle too? F2b could be F1 cocakpoo x cocker too, therefore less likely to be curly?

If you have a good search through the forum MRH, you'll find a thread that explains the "F" generations in great detail.
Good luck with your research :)
