Meet Baxter, the Cavapoo
Local Pet Portrait Photographer Jim got to meet Baxter a real cutie, who chased light, making it really interesting to photograph him with the camera flashes.
Cavapoos were first bred in American during the 1950’s by breeders who wanted to create a low-shedding dog that would be an ideal choice for people who suffer from allergies. A cross between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Poodle dog breeds, outgoing, playful, and curious inheriting some of the best traits from both of their parents.
Cavapoo is also known as
Cavapoos go by several names, including Cavadoodle and Cavoodle. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, they make amazing family pets, as they’re outgoing and adore attention. If you want a loyal, playful dog who enjoys romping around with you or snuggling up on the couch, then this breed may be for you!
Every Cavapoo is slightly different in colour, size, shape and coat texture as it depends on their parent dogs and whether or not they are first generation Cavoos. Coat colours, the texture and length of hair can vary some lean towards the Poodle and others having more of a Cavalier coat. As such some can have silky coats which they inherit from the Cavalier whereas others have a wavier coat which is a good indication they have thrown more to the Poodle. When it comes to colours, the most commonly seen coat colours being as follows:
- Blenheim – chestnut and white
- Tricolour – black, white and tan
At the time of writing according to Pet4Homes, the Cavapoo is the 18th most popular dog out of the 244 recognised breeds. To see the popularity of dogs over the last 100 years based on the Petplan Pet Census then this article is a really interesting read.
