A Chihuahua and poodle mix is commonly called a chipoo (or chi-poo), but might also be called a wapoo, choodle, poochi or fiesta poo. A chipoo is a designer dog that originated in the United States.
Chipoos are known as ideal dogs for people who live in apartments or small houses. The dogs vary in size from about 3 pounds to 20 pounds, depending on the size of the poodle parent. They like to run and play, but they are also loyal to their owners and often curl up as lap dogs. Chipoos tend to be smart dogs that respond well to training.
