The Teacup Cockapoo
The Teacup Cockapoo is absolutely a designer dog. The breed is achieved by pairing a very miniature Poodle with a small Cocker Spaniel.
It’s rare because its hard to achieve from a breeding perspective. Responsible breeders will not try and breed dogs of two different sizes. In general terms I mean breeding a small dog with a medium dog. Or God forbid, a large dog with a small dog. Their respective skeletal structures are different and it can lead to all kinds of health problems.
However, small miniatures are more commonly bred together from a second cross (F2). The smaller dog from the litter is sometimes called the runt, (although this is some thing of a misnomer) because in reality there usually is a smallest of the litter. But that doesn’t make the smallest weak or unhealthy.
It is true that small dogs generally live longer than large dogs and as long as the smallest is reared with right nutrition it will from to be as healthy as any other dog.

When searching for a Teacup Poo, you will often come across adverts for ‘Teacup Toy Cockapoo’ as there is not that much difference in size. And as I said in my Cockapoo Sizes page, there is quite a bit of variance between defined categories, so a large Teacup is pretty much the same as a small Toy Cockapoo.
Lets remind ourselves of size and weight:
Teacup Cockapoos stand under 10 inches / 25.4 cm and average less than 6 lbs. / 2.72 kg.

Because this size Cockapoo is a small dog their growth is complete at about 9-12months. You are probably looking at a dog on average 8 inches tall from paw to shoulder. This is the perfect size for those living in a flat or apartment and not wanting their living environment to overwhelmed by ‘dog’ smell and dander.
