So Last night we took Lady out on one of our Adventure walks ( jojo ;) )
and we ran into two other dogs who the owner said were both cockapoos, one was 10 years old and one was 2 years old....both were very very short and stubby!!! they did have kind of a cockapoo face, but I would have never imagined that these were both cockapoos since their body type was so different from what I am used to seeing....I should have asked what their parentage was.....but was very taken aback at the time....if the mother is the poodle can this make for a....for lack of a better word....stubby cockapoo??
Lady is small compared to alot of the cockapoos on here, and although they looked heavier than her....they were a good 1 can :) smaller than her.

Is a 'can' a Canadian imperial or metric measurement?

Izzy and Lady look pretty similar in size and stature, her mother was a poodle. Maybe they were overweight toy poodle sired cockapoos. xx

I was making a reference to the thread where people used soup cans to measure the dogs.

Oh I didn't know that Izzy's mom was a poodle...Lady's mom was a cocker....but she is definetly close in size and stature to Izzy.

It was so funny, they were just so stuby!!!! and the woman kept saying how her girl looked just like Lady....I was thinking are you serious!! they don't even look like the same kind of dog.

Sounds like a fun walk .. stubby cockapoos ..

Honey is shorter legged and more rounded build like a cocker spaniel and Oakley is lean and long legged like a poodle .. but they both look like cockapoos just slightly different buillds .. I wouldn't say Honey was stubby though... just a bundle of fluff which makes her legs look shorter :) ha ha ha

There are unscrupulous breeders out there , that will pass off other crosses to be the latest designer cross.

I have come across a couple in my travels, when you ask the owners what they are you can tell that the poor owner has been duped.

Or it may be that the cocker or poodle that was used was not of a good standard/conformation.
