The Cavapoo is a mix between the Poodle (Miniature) and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. This breed looks a lot like a Cavalier, with the fur texture and slightly larger size of a Poodle.
The Maltipoo, on the other hand, is a mix between the Miniature Poodle and the Maltese. This canine hasn’t been around for long either but is quickly becoming popular if you can find the right breeder.
Although both breeds are similar in size, the Maltipoo is slightly smaller than the Cavapoo. The Maltipoo averages 8 to 13 inches tall, while the Cavapoo is 9 to 14.
Cavapoos have a life expectancy of about 10 – 13 years, whereas the Maltipoos live to be around 13 – 15.
