In this Peekapoo size guide, you will learn everything about the size and growth patterns of this adorable hybrid breed. You’ll also get to try our interactive Doodle puppy growth calculator to predict your Peekapoo’s full-grown size. Let’s get started!
Peekapoo is the most adorable little hybrid breed combining the beautiful Poodle and the compact Pekingese. Peekapoo is a true, loyal lapdog with an affectionate nature. If you’re looking for a snuggle-buddy who loves joining you on all activities, a Peekapoo will be your best bet.
Peekapoo Size Predictions: How Big Does A Peekapoo Get?
As Peekapoo doesn’t have a recognized breed standard, there’s some guesswork involved when estimating the full-grown size of a Peekapoo. Luckily, the easiest way to predict your Peekapoo puppy’s adult size is to look at the parents.
Pekingese is a tiny dog who weighs around 7 to 14 pounds, and stands at 6 to 9 inches tall at the shoulder. Poodles, on the other hand, come in three sizes – Toy, Mini, and Standard Poodle.
Toy Poodle weighs around 4 to 12 pounds, and has a height of up to 10 inches. Miniature Poodle weighs between 10 to 20 pounds, and stands at 10 to 15 inches tall. Lastly, Standard Poodles can weigh up to 70 pounds and stand at 24 to 27 inches tall.
Naturally, if we look at the size of Pekingese, we can predict that a Peekapoo will turn out to be a tiny dog. Due to their small size, they are only mixed with Toy or Miniature Poodles. However, as with any Doodle, we can’t predict with 100% certainty that a Peekapoo will take more after one parent or the other.
So how big do Peekapoos get? Peekapoo’s size ranges from 4 to 20 pounds, and they stand at up to 12 inches tall at the shoulder. Therefore, we can expect a Peekapoo pup with a Pekingese parent and a Toy Poodle parent to become a smaller dog than a Peekapoo with a Miniature Poodle parent.
As we’re talking about growing furbabies, it’s important to note that puppies need a high-quality puppy food specially designed for growing pups. This ensures that your Peekapoo puppy gets enough nutrients and nourishment for proper growth and development.
Furthermore, as Peekapoo is a small breed, we recommend you look for dog food specially formulated for small breed puppies. Here you will find our Doodle puppy food guides.
F1 Vs F1b Vs F2b Peekapoo
As genetics play a key role in a puppy’s size, it’s important we understand the different Doodle generations and how they can affect your pup’s size. Let’s have a look at what they mean:
|1st Parent||2nd Parent||% Pekingese*||% Poodle*|
|F1 Peekapoo (first-generation)||Pekingese||Poodle||50%||50%|
|F1B Peekapoo (first-generation backcross)||F1 Peekapoo||Poodle||25%||75%|
|F1BB Peekapoo (first-generation backcross backcross)||F1B Peekapoo||Poodle||12.5%||87.5%|
|F2 Peekapoo (second-generation)||F1 Peekapoo||F1 Peekapoo||50%||50%|
|F2B Peekapoo (second-generation backcross)||F1 Peekapoo||F1B Peekapoo||37.5%||62.5%|
|F2B Peekapoo (alternate cross)||F2 Peekapoo||Poodle||25%||75%|
|F3 / Multigen Peekapoo||F1B Peekapoo or higher||F1B Peekapoo or higher||Varies||Varies|
Although in theory we can mix and match different Peekapoo generations, most breeders will only produce first-generation Peekapoos with two purebred parents.
Peekapoo Size Charts & Growth Patterns
Like most small breed dogs, Peekapoos usually reach their full-grown size before they turn 1 year old. Depending on their size, Peekapoos might stop growing as early as 7 months of age. However, bigger Peekapoos can reach their full-grown size by the time they’re 12 months old.
Let’s take a look at a typical Peekapoo size chart:
|Teacup / Toy Peekapoo||Mini Peekapoo|
|Weight||4-12 pounds||12-20 pounds|
|Height||Up to 10 inches||Up to 12 inches|
|When Full-Grown?||7-10 months||9-12 months|
Although we highlight Teacup and Mini Peekapoos, breeders and owners have not yet reached a consensus on how to categorize the different Peekapoo sizes. Some people call Mini Peekapoos Standard Peekapoos, and consider Toy or Teacup Peekapoos Mini Peekapoos instead.
PS! We’ve created an interactive Peekapoo size chart and puppy growth calculator, which is a handy tool you can use to predict your puppy’s full-grown size!
Teacup Peekapoo or Toy Peekapoo is usually a cross between a Pekingese and a Toy Poodle. The Teacup Peekapoo’s full-grown size can range anywhere from 4 to 12 pounds, and they usually stand up to 10 inches tall at the shoulder.
Usually, a Teacup Peekapoo will reach half their adult weight around the time they’re 3.5 months old. A Teacup Peekapoo will finish growing anytime around 7.5 to 11 months of age.
To calculate your Teacup Peekapoo’s adult size, take their weight at 15 weeks old and multiply it by two.
Mini Peekapoo, sometimes also called Standard Peekapoo, is the largest Peekapoo size that you can find. They tend to weigh around 12 to 20 pounds and measure up to 12 inches tall at the shoulder.
They usually reach half of their adult weight when 3.5 to 4 months old, and their full-grown adult size around the time they’re 9 to 12 months old.
To guesstimate your Mini Peekapoo puppy’s adult weight, take their weight at 18 weeks old and multiply it by two.
