Don’t be fooled by the name. This sweet little pup is anything but bossy! The Bossipoo is a highly affectionate and caring dog, and one that is bound to make anyone around them fall instantly in love. This pup is a cross between a Poodle and a Boston Terrier, and they bring the best of both worlds together.
The Bossipoo is very well-mannered, and you can expect this pup to pretty much always be on their best behavior, making this dog an absolute delight to have around!
Compared to other members of the Doodle club, the Bossipoo is a fairly recent addition. These pups joined the Doodle gang sometime in the 1980s since that is when the popularity of Poodle hybrids really took off. No breeder has come forward with the claim of having brought the two breeds together.
The Bossipoo loves to have fun and be around the people that this pup loves. This breed is very affectionate and loyal. However, they do not have the same separation anxiety issues as many of their Doodle peers, which makes them a great option for homes with working people. This pup is very smart and also incredibly loyal and will make sure you always have a smile on your face.
A Bossipoo can grow up to be anywhere between 10 to 15 inches tall and weigh around 25 to 50 pounds.
The Bossipoo, on average, is a healthy pup, thanks to the hybrid vigor that this breed possesses, especially when compared to its purebred parents. When getting a puppy from a breeder, be sure to get the health clearances of both parents. Issues that your Bossipoo may develop include digestive issues and kidney disease.
Both parent breeds are very easy to train, and this trait is inherited by the Bossipoo. They will do well with a little bit of positive reinforcement and will be quick to pick up commands and desired behaviors. They aren’t incredibly active, so short exercise sessions in a fenced yard will be more than enough for this pooch.
Speak to a veterinarian to assess your Bossipoo’s nutritional needs and design a feeding plan accordingly. Steer clear of free-feeding as it may lead to your pup overeating.
These dogs are generally low shedding and have a single-curl coat.
Brush your Bossipoo regularly and bathe them as needed since these pups tend to get a bit smelly. Brush their teeth regularly to keep dental issues at bay.
A Bossipoo puppy will cost you around $450 to $600.
