Terripoo’s size might be small, but they fit a lot of personality in that tiny package. In this Terripoo size guide, we will cover all about the size predictions and growth patterns of Terripoo puppies. In addition, you will find our interactive Terripoo size chart and puppy growth calculator that helps predict your puppy’s full-grown size. Let’s dig in!
Terripoo Size Predictions: How Big Does A Terripoo Get?
Terripoo is a cross between Australian Terrier and Poodle. You also might know them by their other names like Terrypoo, Terri Poo, Terri-Poo, or Terrydoodle. Indeed, this dog has many names!
A Terripoo pup will melt your health with their affectionate, cuddly personality. They are fun-loving and active companions who are completely devoted to their human families. As a bonus, Terripoo pups have inherited a spunky streak from the Australian Terrier parent.
As with any Doodle, the easiest way to predict a Terripoo’s full-grown size is to look at its parents. The Australian Terrier parent is a small dog who weighs between 15 to 20 pounds. Naturally, we can predict that a Terripoo puppy will also grow into a small dog.
Thanks to the Poodle parent, there can be more variety added to the mix in terms of size. However, Australian Terriers are usually not crossed with Standard Poodles. Rather, this hybrid breed usually involves either Toy or Mini Poodles.
So how big does a Terripoo get? Terripoos usually weigh around 10 to 20 pounds, and stand at 9 to 15 inches tall at the shoulder. A Terripoo puppy who is a mix between an Australian Terrier and a Miniature Poodle will naturally be slightly larger than a Terripoo who’s parent pup is a Toy Poodle.
Aside from the pup’s parents, your Terripoo’s size is also affected by their diet while growing up. For instance, overfeeding a puppy might cause them to gain excess weight, which in turn can have negative effects on your pup’s health and development. On the other hand, not feeding your puppy enough can lead to nutrient deficiencies and hinder your puppy’s growth.
That’s why it’s especially important that you keep an eye on your puppy’s diet and make sure they get good food in correct quantities for them to grow into a healthy full-grown Terripoo. We recommend all Doodle owners read this article about how much you should feed your puppy.
F1 vs F1b vs F2b Terripoo
To understand how big a Terripoo puppy will get, we also need to take into account the different generations of Doodles. As all Doodles are hybrid and mix different breeds,
Let’s have a closer look:
- An F1 or first-generation Terripoo has an Australian Terrier parent and a Poodle parent. (50% Australian Terrier, 50% Poodle)
- An F1b or first-generation backcross Terripoo has a Terripoo parent and an original breed parent – usually a Poodle. (25% Australian Terrier, 75% Poodle)
- An F1bb is a first-generation backcross backcross Terripoo that has an F1b Terripoo parent and a Poodle parent (12.5% Australian Terrier, 87.5% Poodle)
- An F2 Terripoo has two F1 Terripoo parents. (50% Australian Terrier, 50% Poodle)
- An F2b Terripoo has an F2 Terripoo parent and a Poodle parent. (25% Australian Terrier, 75% Poodle)
- An F2bb Terripoo has an F2 Terripoo parent and a Poodle parent. (12.5% Australian Terrier, 87.5% Poodle)
- An F3 Terripoo or third-generation Terripoo is a hybrid of different Terripoos.
When looking at the different Terripoo generations, we can see that there’s opportunity for more control over the size of a pup. For instance, crossing an F1 Terripoo with a Toy Poodle will most likely result in a smaller F1b Terripoo pup.
However, if you choose to adopt your puppy from a breeder, please make sure to do thorough research. We recently wrote an article on this exact topic on how to choose a responsible breeder, so make sure to check it out.
Terripoo Size Charts & Growth Patterns
All dogs go through similar growth patterns. Usually, puppies experience the most rapid growth phase in the first six months of their life. However, smaller dogs reach their full size quicker than larger breeds. Therefore, as Terripoo is a smaller hybrid breed, you can expect your Terripoo to reach their full size fairly fast.
Usually, Terripoos reach half of their adult weight around the time they’re 3.5 to 5 months old. Depending on their size, they will then plateau at their full-grown weight between 9 to 13 months of age.
Let’s have a look at the Standard Terripoo size chart:
|Height||9 to 15 inches|
|When Full-Grown?||9-13 months|
*A dog’s height is measured at the highest part of its shoulder blades, not from the top of its head.
Although the Standard Terripoo’s size correlates to toy and mini dog breeds, Australian Terriers are rarely crossed with Standard Doodles. Therefore, a cross between a Miniature Poodle and an Australian Terrier is usually regarded as a Standard Terripoo.
If you’d like to calculate your puppy’s full-grown size, be sure to try out our interactive puppy growth calculator. Our Terripoo size chart and growth calculator is a fun and easy way for you to predict and track your puppy’s growth.
Furthermore, there are a few different formulas for calculating their full-grown size. Depending on your puppy’s estimated adult weight, you can use either a formula for Toy Doodles, or another for Miniature Doodles.
If your Terripoo’s full-grown size will likely be on the larger end of the scale, you can calculate their adult weight with this simple formula:
If your Terripoo’s estimated adult size is on the smaller end of the scale, here’s a formula you can use to predict their adult weight:
To conclude, Terripoos are great dogs for almost any type of family. Despite their small size, they have a lot to give to their humans. They fit in smaller households, so they can easily thrive in an apartment. Terripoos are extremely social and playful dogs, as long as you’ve dedicated time and effort for proper training and socialization. Once you adopt a Terripoo, you’ve found yourself a loyal companion for years to come.
