About the Yorkie-Poo
Also referred to as a Yorkie-poo or Yorkie Poo; Yorkie-poos are a hybrid dog crossed from a Yorkshire terrier and a Poodle. This cross gives a smooth silky wavy coat with a well-balanced and proportioned dog. Yorkipoos, are personable, playful, bright and spunky. They enjoy romping around with other pets, cats or dogs. Much like their Yorkshire terrier heritage, they are also brave and very loyal. Like their Poodle heritage, they are quite sharp and quick learners.
Yorkipoos are gentle natured and not very mischievous. Housebreaking is not as much of a challenge as it can be with a pure breed Yorkshire terrier. Smart and capable, they are always eager to learn new tricks. They make great family and do okay with children. Yorkipoos are quite healthy benefiting from gene mixing and avoiding many of the hereditary health problems Yorkies and Poodles are known to have.
Yorkipoos in good health can live up to 15 years of age.
Yorkipoos thrive well indoors and require only moderate exercise. They are very active yet and do enjoy the occasional walks and trips to the dog park.
Yorkipoos shed very little, making them a great hypoallergenic breed. They have a full coat of hair that should trimmed monthly by a professional groomer to keep the hair from matting. Regular brushing will keep the coat clean and tangle free. This mix breed is naturally clean and only needs to be bathed as necessary.
