  • My puppy is a Cockamo...

    ...has anyone heard of this mix? - Cocker Spaniel x American Eskimo dog?
    She's really cute - black with white belly, white & black speckled legs. She looks more spaniel. She weighs about 21 lbs and the vet said she is probably fully grown.
    I was just wondering if the breeder made this name up?

      Definitely. It's yet another Designer Dog.

        Every dog that is a mix now is getting a made up name. There are over 400 dog breeds, but before about 10 years ago, there was no Labradoodle, Cockapoo, Havapoo, etc.

        People just make up names now so they sound cute and help the animal sell. Bottom line. Your dog is a mutt. There's nothing wrong with that. I bet she's pretty cute.

          Yeah, I'm afraid that name is most definitely made up. What you have is your garden variety mutt. They're personally my favorite. I'd love to see some pictures of your new dog, she sounds like a cutie.

          I'd stay away from breeders selling these 'breeds' in the future though. If you're going to get a mutt, you might as well get one from a local shelter. You'll be helping out a pup in need and won't be supporting a backyard breeder.

            I bet she's really pretty! That's an interesting mix too, but the name made me laugh! Definitely something the "breeder" made p to sell cute puppies.

              Yeah, its common for them to join the two breed names to make a nice creative description for the dog. I had a Cockapoo back in the days, he was the sweetest dog I ever owned and lived to be 17 years old.

                    People are making all kinds of designer made up breeds now a days.
                    It is strange to me that mixed breed dogs that were and still are often labeled as mutts or mixes in the shelters, are now sold for hundreds even sometimes thousands of dollars...
                    No offense intended just making an observation about the designer dog trend.

                    I'm sure she is a very cute pup. Best of luck with her. Post some picts!

                      mine too

                      I have a cock-a-mo too. They are amazing dogs but they can have the bark of a american eskimo but you get used to it. They are amazingly protective and very attached once they know who is their mom or dad. They will NEVER stop loving you. Mine is my baby he cries when I leave and is excited EVERY single time I walk in the door. I could be gone for two seconds taking out the trash and he acts like I was gone a year. It is adorable and I couldn't ask for a better dog. He's perfect and SUPER cute. He has straight hair and when he gets out of the bath it looks crimped like a cocker spaniel. I hope you love yours as much as I love mine because I definately want another. They're amazing. I've never had a mutt that was so smart. OH they are VERY stubborn but smart. It takes a lot to get their attention. Hope it helped.

                        Just a note, because this isn't a breed, but a random mix of two breeds, these characteristics are going to vary highly from animal to animals. Any mix can have any combination of traits from their mother and father.
                        You can think that I'm wrong, but don't stop thinking.

                          I have a cockamo!!

                          I have a wonderful cockamo puppy too!! She has to be the best thing that has ever happened in my life. We got her when she was 9 weeks old and she was born from a litter of six (seven originally, but one did not make it). Her bark is defiantly american eskimo, but the rest of her personality is cocker spaniel. We love her to pieces!!!

                              Random, I know but, if groups of dogs are left to breed amongst themselves, after a while they revert back to a generic wild-dog look. I find that interesting. Nature has more sense than we do, designing the breed that's best for the dogs.
