For an ideal family pet, consider the Cockapoo, which is prized for it's gentle disposition, and is known to be a loyal and patient dog. Cockapoos have a very sweet temperament, and they love to play with and be around people and other animals. They are especially loving and pleasant with children. The Cockapoo is a highly intelligent dog, and being quite eager to please, is not terribly difficult to train. They don't tend to be overly active dogs, so they do not require very much exercise, and will be quite happy with a small yard to run around in.
The Cockapoo originates from the United States of America. It's a bit of a smaller dog, having a shoulder height of only 14 to 15 inches (35-38cm). It's coat is a cross of those of a Cocker Spaniel and Poodle. It has curly, thick hair which does not shed very much, although regular grooming is recommended. They come in colors of cream, tan, and white.
