A Toy Cockapoo is a mixed breed cross between a Miniature Poodle and an English or American Cocker Spaniel. The stud is usually the Cocker Spaniel and the Mother or ‘Dam’ will be the Poodle.
Toy Cockapoo full grown
Toy Cockapoos are bigger than a lot of people think; they stand between 8 and 10 inches from paw to shoulder. This is about two thirds the size of a Standard or Maxi Cockapoo.

Toy Cockapoos tend to have a sturdy build and there are variances in size, some are indeed smaller depending on the size of the Miniature Poodle mother. Cockapoos under 8 inches are often described as Teacup/Toy size.

Two tone and tri colour Cockapoos are more expensive than solid colour Cockapoos. This is because they are not as ubiquitous. It would be easier to find a Black Toy Cockapoo.
Toy Cockapoo lifespan
Smaller dogs have a longer lifespan on average than larger dogs. A Toy Cockapoo can live up to 17 years.
There is a lot of evidence that small dogs live longer without definite answers as to why? What is known though is that large dogs age faster and the inherent accelerated cell growth rate leads to genetic problems like cancer. Another theory is that larger dogs come from a smaller gene pool of fewer breeding pairs which increases mortality rate.
How much does a Toy Cockapoo cost
In researching this article I noticed the proliferation of advertisements on the popular advertisement sites. But be careful about low prices. This often is an indication of poor breeding practices. If the price is lower than £900 be very detailed with the questions you ask before you put a deposit down. The upper price limit is around £1,300.
