Appearance

They have beautiful large dark eyes. Their fur can be long and silky or curly. They can
have black and tan colors, ruby, blenheim, or tricolor. They are short small dogs,
although the largest of the toy breeds. Their muzzle is short and blunt, and have long
drooping ears that are covered in feathery soft fur.

Temperament

Cav-a-Poos are friendly, obedient, sensible and sweet. They are gentle, playful,
affectionate and very wiling to please. They are usually quiet, but they can bark. They are
good with other pets and with children, and most people. They are intelligent, lively,
quick to mimic and learn.

History

The Cavaliers name is from King Charles II who kept a large number of Toy Spaniels,
by which complaints rose when they continually paid more attention to his dogs than to
his governmental matters. The Germans probably gave Poodles the name Pudel,
which means "to splash in water", referring to the sound an oar makes when hitting the
water.
A Cav-a-Poo is a cross-breed of a Cavalier King
Charles and a Poodle and may demonstrate
any combination of traits from those two breeds
