Yorkie Poo Breed Information

One of the most popular designer breeds in the world, Yorkie Poo puppies merit their fame to their toy size and adorable personalities. They are a mix of a purebred Yorkshire Terrier and a purebred Mini or Toy Poodle. These cute puppies are fans of cuddles, adventures, and games. They love to be near their owners and thrive in households with children, other pets, and multiple family members. They are also great for seniors given that their energy levels are moderate and they have very few grooming needs.

Appearance

A blend of grace, sturdiness, and joy, the Yorkie Poo will enchant everyone he meets. This dog is petite, toy-sized, and spunky. His walk is bouncy and proud, and he carries his head high and proud. His eyes are dark and soulful, and his ears can be floppy or pointy. He sports a long, luxurious coat that can be straight, wavy, or curly, and he has a well-proportioned build. 

The size of a Yorkie Poo is determined by the Poodle used in the mix. With Toy Poodles as one of the parents, Yorkie Poos will stand between 7 to 12 inches tall and weigh between 3 and 10 pounds. If a Miniature Poodle is used in the mix, then the puppies will reach between 10 and 15 inches tall and reach an adult weight of 7 to 14 pounds.  

The colors they sport are also a combination of the colors of their parents, but most often, they appear with the same color pallet and markings as the Yorkshire Terrier. You will see them with combinations of white, black, tan, cream, brown, gray, red, and apricot.  

Temperament

Yorkie Poos are a perfect combination of their parents' temperaments. They are as calm and as balanced as the Poodle and as feisty and cuddly as the Yorkie. Yorkie Poos don’t have aggression or shyness around others, but they can become jealous of other pets in the home that receive more attention than them. They like to dote on their pet parents, but they also want the same in return. 

Interacting with others is what they enjoy most, especially if they get to be praised and petted. They like to meet strangers and other dogs and will not act reserved around anyone. However, you need to socialize them as puppies to ensure they are comfortable in future interactions. 

Most Yorkie Poos are independent but there are also those that like to attach at the hip and shadow their humans everywhere.  

Care

Grooming

The grooming requirements of a Yorkie Poo are low to moderate. You don’t have to worry about spending endless hours brushing or bathing your little dog because grooming these pooches is often effortless. You do need to brush your Yorkie Poo to ensure his coat doesn’t get matted or tangled but this can be done 2 or three times per week for a few minutes. You can give your dog a bath every month or two, but make sure to always use dog shampoo and not products that are for humans. 

Your little Yorkie Poodle will also need to have his ears checked and cleaned regularly, his nails clipped, and his teeth brushed. Your local groomer can help teach you how to do these grooming steps at home.  

Brushing your dog’s teeth is essential for many reasons. Because they are prone to dental issues like all dogs, they require daily dental care.  

Exercise Needs

Although small, Yorkie Poos have plenty of energy and ideas on how to spend it. They like enticing their furry friends in a chase around the park, hiking with their humans, and thoroughly inspecting their surroundings. They like being active and should receive an average of 20 to 30 minutes of exercise every day. Two or three short-to-moderate walks and a few indoor games should be enough to keep them healthy and happy.  

Health

The Yorkie Poo breed is renowned for its good health. As one of the best crossbreeds around, being a mix of two purebred dogs, they also benefit from hybrid vigor. This means that certain ailments that are present and passed down in purebreds are canceled out through crossbreeding. They can still develop some of the small dog issues like patellar luxation, hip dysplasia, cataracts, allergies, and Legg Calve Perthes disease.  

Lifespan

The Yorkie Poo has a lifespan of 10 to 15 years. To make sure your little dog lives a long, healthy life, provide him with plenty of daily exercise and high-quality kibble or homecooked meals. Regular vet checks are also important to ensure they stay in good health.  

Training

Yorkie Poos are very smart dogs, just like you would expect from any Poodle mix. But training them isn’t always without a challenge. Like most smart dogs, they can get bored easily and not follow commands when they are given. Or they may simply want to play instead of staying still and learning. To make sure these brilliant little puppies stay focused, keep training sessions short and filled with games and rewards. Once they begin to get accustomed to a training schedule, you can increase the time you spend teaching them.  

Use positive reinforcement and a reward-based method to help them pick up on things faster. They are a very smart breed that is capable of learning both basic and advanced commands, but they need the right motivation.  

Although they are quite friendly with everyone they meet, they will still require socialization. Make sure to introduce them gradually to new people, sounds, places, and other dogs starting the moment they arrive home and until they reach adulthood. This will ensure they grow up to be well-behaved around others. 

History

Like most small designer breeds, Yorkie Poos have only been around for a handful of years. They originated in the United States during the late 90s and have been getting more and more popular. The first Yorkie Poo was created with the hope that it would inherit the best of its purebred parents. By crossing a purebred miniature or toy Poodle with a purebred Yorkshire terrier, breeders aimed to create a dog with exceptional intelligence, great hypoallergenic qualities, and a fantastic personality. A combination of looks from the two parent breeds was also desired and achieved.  

Yorkie Poos climbed the latter to success the moment they appeared. They charmed dog lovers with their toy size and sweet nature. They are still rising in popularity, especially in the United States where they are considered one of the fanciest dog breeds to own. 

The breed’s recognition is given by the Designer Dog Club – DDC and the American Canine Hybrid Club - ACHC. The American Kennel Club does not find crossbreeds eligible for recognition yet. The breed’s parents are recognized by the AKC.
