The Yorkie-Poo is a so-called hybrid breed, and is a cross between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Toy Poodle. This breed is one of the cutest you will come across. Any mischief will soon be forgiven and you are sure to spoil this little puppy to your heart’s content.
Yorkie-Poos are smart companion dogs that require daily walks and off-lead play. The Yorkshire Terrier heritage makes this cross breed a good watchdog and they will bark to alert you but stop immediately once they see the person. They may sound like big, dangerous guard dogs but once someone sees who is barking they will just laugh about their cuteness and the intensity with which they want to protect their house.
These dogs adapt easily. The Poodle in them likes to socialise and needs daily outings to be kept happy and busy. Playing fetch and chase at the park, followed by a stint at a café on their owner’s lap would be their ideal lifestyle preference. As they are so small you can take them with you everywhere and they will just love it and be on their best behavior.
Regular brushing and grooming is required to keep these little guys looking their gorgeous best.
