The perpetual puppy: New breed of dog never grows old

This dog might be a little long in the enamel, but youd never know it considering its baby-faced appearance.

Even when its fully-grown, the cava-poo-chon still looks like a pup and its the newest go-to dog in the present pattern for small pets.

Bred by Arizona-based Linda and Steve Rogers, thecava-poo-chonis a cavalier King Charles spaniel and bichon frise blend bred with a miniature poodle.

The pair enlisted the aid of a geneticist and reproductive veterinarian to build up the tribrid or triple cross.

According to Ms Rogers, cava-poo-choncombines the best of the three breeds and can be found with a selection of color and two kinds of coat: curly or really curly.

The dogssmall stature means it’ll never shed its youthful looks and Linda says there’s no reason the dogs cant appreciate a 20-year lifespan.

However, the American Kennel Club refuses to understand the cava-poo-chon being an official breed, with one specialist describing some specially-bred small dogs as costly gimmicks.

Dog coach Steve Haynes, who is working with 50 first-generation cava-poo-chons, said: Theres been a market for these forever-ish young dogs.Until lately, specialised dogs like miniature Yorkies and miniature Maltese were the go-to dogs.

With such a specialised selection of features, it’s probably unsurprising the cava-poo-chon comes with a hefty cost. If you want one it’ll set you straight back between $3,500 (?2,165 ).

and $2,000 (?1,237)
