Facts - Personality
The best Yorkiepoo puppies will get the most desirable characteristics from their parent breeds, the Yorkshire Terrier and the Poodle. If genetics is in their favor, the Yorkiepoo’s personality includes friendliness, playfulness and trainability.
Friendliness: A Yorkiepoo puppy is very affectionate because of his high social needs. It is due to this same reason that Yorkiepoos are friendly even towards cats and other dogs. They are good snuggle buddies, if this is the type of dog that you want. On the negative side of this good trait, a Yorkiepoo’s temperament can be destructive if he is left alone. He will bark loudly or chew on stuff until you give him attention.
Playfulness: At his best, a Yorkiepoo can have a good sense of humor. This adds a fun twist on his playfulness. However, there may be times that your Yorkiepoo puppy wants to engage in rough play. When this happens, you must keep a close watch on him because his small size makes him very vulnerable to getting hurt.

It is also highly advised that you enroll your Yorkiepoo in a puppy kindergarten class when he is 10 to 12 weeks old so that he can satisfy his socializing needs. However, if you decide to enroll your puppy in a class, make sure that the facility only accepts dogs that have vaccines. It will be safer if you bring your puppy to a veterinarian to get vaccines before you let him socialize as well.
Facts - Care
Since Yorkiepoos are naturally affectionate and sociable, a basic Yorkiepoo care needs a constant interaction. You should never leave your puppy alone for hours without playing with him. If you do, this will cause the puppy to bark loudly until you give him attention.
A Yorkiepoo puppy care also involves a careful watch whenever the puppy feels playful. Though they are usually small in size, Yorkiepoos love to engage in rough play. Their small size, however, leads them to easily get hurt sometimes. So you have to keep an eye on your puppy if he starts to run or play around.
Yorkiepoos are also known to be very energetic, especially during their puppy years. You should always allot time to take your puppy out on walks to give him exercise. This is if you don’t want your puppy to run around the house all day. There may also be times that your Yorkiepoo might chew on stuff if they can’t expel their pent-up energy.

Facts - Grooming
Our partner breeders have bred the healthiest Yorkshire Terriers and Toy Poodles to give birth to our Yorkiepoo puppies. However, genetics is very unpredictable. A Yorkiepoo can either have a lower chance or a combination of the parent breeds’ genetic diseases. This is the reason why we want to educate you about the possible diseases that your puppy may have. If you have the proper information about these genetic diseases, you will know what to do if ever any symptoms show up.
Let us focus on the Toy Poodle’s health first. One of the most common genetic diseases with Toy Poodles is the Cushing’s syndrome. The Cushing’s syndrome is a disease wherein the adrenal glands produce too much cortisol, a steroid hormone, which causes the puppy to gain weight and lose hair among others. Toy Poodles may also have the Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease that results to a decrease in blood circulation to the head of the thigh bone, causing the puppy to develop a limp within 4 - 6 months old. Aside from these, a Toy Poodle might also have hypothyroidism, diabetes and progressive retinal atrophy.
Just like Toy Poodles, Yorkshire Terriers may also have hypothyroidism and the Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease. If you see any symptoms of these diseases on your puppy, you should bring him to a veterinarian immediately. A regular check-up will also help you keep track of your Yorkiepoo’s health. You should also provide a good Yorkiepoo nutrition to help boost your puppy’s immune system.
Facts - Health
Because he is a crossbreed between Yorkshire Terriers and Toy Poodles, a Yorkiepoo can either have a slightly scruffy or a curly coat. Because of this, a Yorkiepoo’s grooming needs depend on the type of coat that he has. But the one thing common about any Yorkiepoo, no matter the type of coat, is that he needs regular brushing. You might even have to brush your Yorkiepoo’s coat daily to prevent it from becoming a matted mess which can lead to painful and serious skin infections at the roots of the hair. If an infection happens, it will cost a lot to remedy the infection.
But if your Yorkiepoo has a curly hair like a Toy Poodle’s, you must have the coat trimmed every four to six weeks. You can do it all by yourself with a clipper or you can bring your Yorkiepoo to a professional pet groomer if you're unsure how. On the other hand, if your Yorkiepoo has a coat that looks more like a Yorkshire Terrier’s, you don’t need to trim the coat as much. You just have to keep an eye on the length of the coat and trim it if it gets too long or whenever necessary. Again, don’t forget to brush your puppy’s coat daily to avoid any irritating skin infections.
In addition, give your puppy a warm bath every week or so. The good thing about Yorkiepoos is that you don’t need to give them a bath every day as long as you remember to brush their coat frequently. You should also give your puppy baths whenever he gets dirty while playing outside.
The rest of the steps on how to groom a Yorkiepoo are pretty basic. Just remember to keep your Yorkiepoo’s ears clean by using an ear cleaning solution that is recommended to you by your veterinarian. Make sure that there is no wax buildup inside your dog’s ear to prevent infection and irritation. You should also trim the nails of your puppy every other week or whenever needed. Lastly, brush your puppy’s teeth with a pet toothpaste approved by your veterinarian to keep his teeth healthy and his breath fresh.
Facts - History
Breeders cross two different breeds of dogs in hopes that the offspring will get the best qualities from the two parent breeds. However, genetics does not always work according to what we expect. This is the reason why crossbreeding has been a practice of many breeders for many years. They repeatedly cross two parent breeds until they get the results they are looking for. Once the offspring has the desired qualities, the breeders repeat the process of crossbreeding again. This time, they do it using two mature offspring. And if the third generation puppies have the desired qualities too, the breeder will use them to crossbreed as well. The process goes on.
The repetition of the crossbreeding process also leads to a higher chance of consistency in the appearance, size and personality of the puppies. However, this goes with saying that the breeders have chosen the best dogs from the bunch.
The history of Yorkiepoos only began about 10 to 20 years ago when people started asking for a crossbreed with the same traits as the Yorkshire Terrier and the Poodle. Before the Yorkiepoo’s history began, there already have been numerous crossbreeds like the Affenpinscher, the Leonberger and the Doberman Pinscher.
