Jackapoo puppies are tiny, and some secret part of us will always hope they stay that way forever. But the reality is that all those cute little puppies eventually grow up. So how big will a Jackapoo dog get? Read on to find out.
How Big Will A Jackapoo Get?
On average, a Jackapoo can grow from 9 to 16 inches (25 to 38 cm) tall, and a healthy Jackapoo can weigh between 12 to 26 ounces (6 to 12 kg).
The size and weight of a Jackapoo can be further broken down into Toy and Standard size Jackapoo.
- The average size of a fully grown Toy Jackapoo is between 9 – 10 inches (22 – 25cm) with a weight of 12 – 18 pounds (5 – 8kg).
- A Standard sized Jackapoo is between 10 – 16 inches (25 – 40cm) and weighs 13 – 26 pounds (5 – 12kg).
So our furry little friends won’t grow to be giants. And because Jackapoos are relatively small dogs, they can adapt to many different types of homes, big or small.
Jackapoo Growth By Size
With our little Jackapoos, there aren’t many variations in their size. We have the Toy, Miniature or otherwise referred to as Standard Jackapoo.
Here is a breakdown of the different sizes of the fun-loving and energetic Jackapoo:
|Toy Jackapoo||9 – 10 inches (22 – 25cm)|
|Standard Jackapoo||10 – 16 inches (25 – 40cm)|
The most adorable little ball of energy comes in the Toy Jackapoo package.
The toy Jackapoo is the result of breeding a Toy Poodle with the Jack Russell Terrier.
A Toy Jackapoo reaches its full size between the ages of 7.5 to 11 months old, and by the time they reach this age, they should have a height of 9 to 10 inches (22 to 25 cm).
Your standard Jackapoo can also be called a miniature because they are breed from a Miniature Poodle and Jack Russell Terrier. It’s always important to get your hybrid dogs from a reputable breeder. A responsible breeder will always try and breed hybrid dogs with breeds that are similar in size to avoid complications and look after the health of the dogs.
A Standard Jackapoo reaches its full size between 11 to 13 months old. You can expect their full-grown size to be approximately 10 to 16 inches (25 to 40 cm).
So there’s not a huge size difference between the Toy and the Standard Jackapoo. Both types will fit perfectly on your lap and can be suited to life on a farm, in a home, or even a small apartment… as long as they get their daily exercise.
How To Measure A Jackapoo’s Height
You measure a dog’s height from its paw to the highest part of its shoulder blade, not its head, for the most accurate measurements. You can use a measuring tape to do this.
How Much Will Your Jackapoo Weigh?
The small stature of the fun and friendly Jackapoo also has a lighter weight. Jackapoos are notorious for putting on weight, so it’s important to always monitor how much they’re eating. Let’s see how much Jackapoos should weigh:
|Toy Jackapoo||12 – 18 pounds (5 – 8kg)|
|Standard Jackapoo||13 – 26 pounds (5 – 12kg)|
A Jackapoo reaches its full height before it reaches its total adult weight. So even though they might look like they are fully grown because of their height, it still takes some time for a puppy to fill out completely.
Toy Jackapoo Weight
They’re not the teeniest of dogs, but they are still pretty small. A fully grown Toy Jackapoo should weigh between 12 to 18 pounds (5 to 8kg). They’ll stay adorably small but not so small that they can’t play with bigger dogs or kids.
Standard Jackapoo Weight
This might vary slightly depending on whether you have a male or female Jackapoo, but you barely notice the size difference between them. Your standard Jackapoo weighs between 13 to 26 pounds (5 to 12kg).
Paired with its high prey drive and energy, this is what makes the Jackapoo a hard-working dog. It’s small enough to maneuver quickly but bulky enough to endure harsh terrains. So if you’re on a farm or smallholding, the Standard Jackapoo will thrive.
How To Measure A Jackapoo’s Weight
Measuring a Jackapoo’s weight is not as simple as measuring your own. Even well-trained dogs may move around or might be too big to put all four paws on the scale.
So the best way to weigh your Jackapoo is to:
- Grab a scale and measure your own weight first.
- Take note of your weight.
- Pick up your Jackapoo and stand on the scale while holding them.
- Make a note of the new weight, which will be the total weight of you and your dog.
- Subtract your weight from the total weight and this will give you your Jackapoo’s weight.
If you don’t have a scale at home, your vet will usually weigh them as a part of the general checkup procedure.
How To Predict How Big Your Jackapoo Will Grow
Being a mixed breed, we can never know exactly how big our Jackapoos will be like until they have reached full maturity.
But a good indicator of how big your Jackapoo will be is to pay attention to your puppy’s parents. The parent’s physical characteristics can give you a good estimate of your Jackapoos size.
Usually, the Jackapoo is a combination of the Jack Russell and the Toy or Miniature Poodle. So, with both parent breeds being small to medium-sized, you can bet that your Jackapoo will also be relatively small.
Being a hybrid makes it easier to control the size of a dog by deliberately breeding with a smaller one.
We can also use formulas to predict your Jackapoo’s weight when it reaches adulthood:
Toy Jackapoo Weight Prediction Formula:
Adult Weight = 15 weeks weight x 2
Standard Jackapoo Weight Prediction Formula:
Adult Weight = 18 weeks weight x 2
