"What's A Yorkipoo?"

The Yorkipoo is also called the "Yorkie-Poo" and he is not a purebred dog but a toy hybrid dog. He is a cross between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Poodle. They are one of the new breeds people are calling a "designer dog" so they aren't recognized by the AKC. They however are recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club.

The Yorkipoo is a cheerful and smart little dog that has the determination and resilience of a Yorkshire Terrier with the intelligence and quickness of wit of a Poodle.

The Yorkipoo makes a great indoor pet.

He is only 7-12 inches tall and weighs between 4-15 pounds with a life span of 10 - 15 years. They are hypoallergenic dogs due to lack of undercoat which means he is non- to- low shedding and good for people with allergies.

A Yorkipoo makes a great family pet and do ok with children but do enjoy romping with other pets. They are trained easily but can be stubborn. They make excellent watchdogs. These dogs thrive indoors with moderate exercise but do enjoy an occasional walk.

These dogs are well balanced and proportioned with a smooth and silky coat. They can come in gray, apricot, black and tan, chocolate, sable, silver and cream.
