General Breed Information

Considered as a hybrid or designer dog, the Cairnoodle was created through the crossing of the Poodle with the Cairn Terrier. This dog also goes by the name Poocan, and it is recognized by the Designer Dogs Kennel Club and the American Canine Hybrid Club under that name.

Cairnoodles stand at 10 to 15 inches tall and weigh approximately 13 to 20 pounds. These dogs have a long or round head, with a nose and eyes that are both dark-coloured and large in size. The triangular ears of these dogs are set wide apart. They have a compact body that is rather muscular. The chest of Cairnoodles is deeper than it is broad. These dogs have a tail that hangs low. The coat of Cairnoodles can be either very curly or wavy, and hair on their body is wispy and short. They have more fur on their face. The coat colours of these dogs include cream, black, gray, and red.

These dogs are susceptible to developing progressive retinal atrophy because both the Poodle and the Cairn Terrier are prone to this condition. Cairnoodles may also get afflicted with hypothyroidism, luxating patella, heart problems, and eye problems. When properly taken care of, these dogs can live for approximately 12 to 16 years.

Owners of Cairnoodles should brush the coat of these dogs regularly to prevent tangling and matting. Regular bathing of these dogs should also be done using a mild shampoo.
