She wants to say hello to everyone,” said Amy Wolf to the Associated Press, “We’ve met tons of people while walking her. We feel much more connected with this neighborhood than the previous one, all because of her. She makes us more approachable, and we feel a lot safer.”
What do families that have bought the Cava-poo-chon say? So far, 58 families have returned to get a second dog.
What did the AKC say? The American Kennel Club does not recognize this new mix breed as an official breed. One expert stepped out and said these small dogs that are specially bred are expensive ‘gimmicks’.
