    Look up information on Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and toy or miniature Poodles. Puppies sold as Cavoodles, Spoodles or whatever are usually a cross between two pure bred parents of different breeds. As they are not yet a real breed they do not breed true to a specific type. Some will throw to the Cav type and others will look more like Poodles. At present it's just the luck of the draw.

    Both Cavs and Poodles can suffer from eye problems. Entropion is quite common in Cavs. Both breeds are more likely to develop ear problems than some other breeds, particularly Poodles. Congenital heart defects are more common than they should be in some Cavs and both breeds can suffer from patella problems.

    Don't let this scare you. Your pup is probably perfectly healthy. Cavs and Poodles are both lovely breeds.

    Enjoy your new puppy.

    What in particular did you want to know? Things such as height, temperment, health etc one can hardly speculate on as it is a cross between two breeds (there needs to be 8 generations of cross breeding before a breeder can apply for registration as a new breed - none of these breeds aside from the labradoodle have done this.

    If you want to know general things about dogs, you can ask us and we will help as best we can

    The only thing I know of is to be careful with coats. Poodles crossed with other breeds can lead to really hard to manage coats, anything from wirey terrier like hair to pouffy thick matty hair.

    This cross normally loses the soft silky Cav waves and ends up very thick coated - needing lots of work. Cute fluffy pups though - but the hair can just keep on growing... and growing...

    Roise has the ears of a Cav but her body fur is very soft and fluffy.

    So long as you socialise her - and your son - there wont be a problem. Most times when kids are bitten it's because the dog is hurt/scared/surprised - and ocassionally you get an aggressive animal.

    Teach him how to handle her gently - she is just a baby herself. I hate the idea that a good dog is one that allows others to hang off its tail and shake it around and carry it and dress it up - yea kids will do it, but a dog shouldn't have to go through it.

    I am sure puppy questions will arise as you go through it all.

    She a little cutie

    Best advise I have with pets and kids...always let pup have HER own space..a room or somewhere where she can have some time out if she has had enough of the kids.
    Also it is important to teach the kids to respect pup, treat her kind and always leave pup alone when she is eating
    I have 4 kids and a very large 7month old pup....OMG, what a handfull..LOL
