Cocker-Poo -Need advice
A neighbor/friend is interested in acquiring a puppy and she would ultimately like to do therapy work. She has asked my help and is coming to my house tomorrow to visit with my dogs and talk about therapy. She's retired, an animal love and would prefer a puppy.
Of course, I'd like her to get a Havanese, but it seems that her vet owns a Cocker-Poo and she likes that dog. So she wants one. I also think that she doesn't want to spend all that money for a Hav.
Do any of you know how she could go about finding a good cocker-poo? I'm stumped because how can she know which traits the dog will carry?
Do breeders of Cocker-Poos raise them like good Hav breeder (or any other good breeder) would do? i.e. pad training, crate training, etc. What about health testing.
Of course, I'm hoping she'll love my dogs and then I'll suggest Hav Rescue or even a breeder if she'll spend the money.
Any suggestions about finding a good Cocker -Poo?
