Dog description

A 15lb non-shedding mystery poodle mix born in Mexico, adopted in Phoenix. He is sweet, playful, submissive and an equal mix of active and lazy. He has soulful amber eyes and an excellent sense of humor. He is the first pet for our young kids and a fantastic road trip or couch potato companion for our family.

Dog summary

Our sweet fluffball is equal part Tigger, long-legged howler monkey, and baby luck dragon.

Quirk

Poco wants to make friends with everyone and everything, even ducks.

Poco melts hearts wherever he goes.

Fun Story

Though it doesn't get particularly cold in Phoenix, we've discovered that Poco has "snow nose" where it changed from black to brown when the temperatures dropped.

GENOMIC BREED MIX

What are these results saying? How did we get there?

We're trying to determine all the breeds and "non breeds" in your dog - 80% of dogs on earth don't have breed ancestry at all!

We're predicting your dog's mixes from the 93 breeds with open data for validity.

If your dog has unusual ancestry, we may not have an accurate match - yet! As our reference set grows, your dog's results might evolve, so check back for updates and new information as new data becomes available.

We share our breed determining methods openly.
