An adorable small dog with the personality of a big clown, the Cockapoo is the first of the "designer dogs," dating back to the 1960s rather than to just a few years ago. Completely people-oriented, the Cockapoo is intelligent enough to train easily, hardly sheds, forgives quickly, and is so affectionate that you'll never feel alone. You might even have to shut the bathroom door for a minute of privacy. He's happy running around an agility course, showing off his tricks to company, being petted as a therapy dog, or just hanging out on your lap. Your lap is his, by the way.
