Premier Kennel Club (PKC)
The Cockerchon (aka Cock-A-Chon) is a designer dog, an intentional hybrid of the American Cocker Spaniel, a game flushing hunting dog turned family companion, and the Bichon Frise, a small, cheerful companion breed. The resulting hybrid is an engaging and affectionate animal with a high intelligence and a desire to please.
The Toy Cockerchon can reach 10 inches in height but has a sturdier build, the bigger ones tipping the scales at just under 12 pounds. The Miniature Cockapoo weighs approximately 13 to 18 pounds and ranges between 11 and 14 inches high. The Standard or Maxi Cockerchon should weigh more than 19 pounds and be at least 15 inches in height. Of course, sizes vary depending on the weight of the parents.
