Yorkie Poo Breed history
Although Poodles are the national dog of France, they originated in Germany, where they were bred and used as retrieving water dogs. At that time, the Poodle’s showy haircut was practical – it allowed the poodle to move about easily while hunting while still protecting certain parts of its body, such as the paws, chest, and head.
With its elegance and intelligence, the poodle became a popular breed among the French nobles and in other parts of Europe. Because of their trainable, attention-loving nature and showy looks, poodles were often used in the circus. They have also been used for hunt truffles- underground mushrooms- with their long snouts.
Yorkshire Terriers were initially rodent-catchers in textile mills and coal mines in Scotland and later England. Their small size was perfect for squeezing into spaces to catch rats and mice.
In 1886, the Yorkshire Terrier was recognized by England’s Kennel Club, and after that publicity, it became a fashionable lap dog. The Yorkshire Terrier was bred to a smaller size to fit its new lifestyle.
In 1885, the American Kennel Club recognized its first Yorkshire Terrier.
Since Yorkiepoos are a designer breed, they are not recognized by the American Kennel Club. However, they are recognized by the American Hybrid Canine Club, Designer Dog Kennel Club, International Designer Canine Registry, and the Designer Breed Registry.
Yorkie Poo Average size
Adult Yorkiepoo dogs are usually 7-10″ tall at the shoulders and weigh about 4-8 pounds. Ask your breeder about the puppy’s parents’ sizes for more specific information about your puppy’s size.
Average Yorkie Poo lifespan
You can expect your Yorkiepoo to live for 12-15 years.
Yorkie Poo body features
Since Yorkiepoos are a newer crossbreed, their coat, size, and coloring vary greatly! Your Yorkiepoos may have a straight, soft coat, a curly coat, or a wavy coat.
Their coat can be many colors, including apricot, red and white, black, black and white, black and tan and tri-colored.
They have big, beautiful eyes that will melt any heart and often have floppy ears.
grooming Your Yorkie Poo Puppy
Yorkshire Terriers have long hair, similar to human hair. Poodles have short, curly hair. Your Yorkiepoo will have a combination of these two hair types.
Yorkiepoos should be brushed every day. If your Yorkiepoos has a curly coat like a poodle, it will need a haircut every 6-8 weeks.
Yorkiepoos ears should be kept dry and cleaned regularly to prevent infection.
Yorkiepoos also need other basic grooming, such as regular nail trims and teeth brushing.
Keeping Your Yorkie Poo Puppy Healthy
Crossbreeds are sometimes resistant to the health problems of their purebred parents; however, they can also be susceptible to the health problems of both parents – the Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle.
Fortunately, Yorkiepoos are a generally healthy breed.
Here are some health issues to be aware of:
- Hypothyroidism (low level of thyroid hormones)
- Portosystemic Shunt (an abnormal connection between stomach and liver can cause seizures and other health problems.)
- Atopic Dermatitis (caused by allergies)
- Eye problems such as retinal atrophy, cataracts, corneal dystrophy, etc.
Like all dog breeds, they are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues among dogs.
Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or potential lameness if not addressed.
One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from too much running on hard surfaces, especially when they are puppies.
Typical Yorkie Poo Allergens
Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed these dead skin cells. Dander is attached to the hair that dogs shed.
Poodles are one of the lowest shedding dog breeds and are considered hypo-allergenic.
Yorkshire Terriers are also a low shed and low allergen breed. With these traits in their parents, Yorkiepoos are very allergen-friendly dogs!
However, no dog is entirely allergen-proof. If you or someone in your home has allergies, please talk to your family physician before purchasing a puppy.
- Can Yorkiepoos be AKC registered?No. Since they are a designer breed, Yorkiepoos cannot be AKC registered. However, they can be registered with different designer dog clubs and registries.
- Do Yorkiepoos bark a lot?They can - the breed tends to be very vocal, although proper training can help reduce this. The upside of this is that they can make good watchdogs. They will be sure to let you know when someone is outside!
- Do Yorkiepoos have long coats?They can. Because Yorkies have long, silky, hairlike coats, a Yorkiepoo may have a longer coat. Since they are a hybrid, it’s hard to predict what a specific Yorkiepoo puppy's coat will be like. It will be a mix between the long, silky coat of the Yorkie and the tight, curly coat of the Poodle.
- Are Yorkiepoos stubborn?Like all dogs, Yorkiepoos can be stubborn at times. It helps to keep training sessions fun, short, and interesting.
- Do Yorkiepoos have a strong prey drive?Yorkies were originally ratting dogs, and Poodles were hunting dogs, so both breeds have fairly strong prey drives. Because of this, Yorkiepoos tend to have the potential for a strong prey drive as well.
- Is the Poodle in a Yorkiepoo Standard, Miniature, or Toy?The Poodle used to breed Yorkiepoo puppies is either Miniature or Toy.
- Are Yorkiepoos allergen-friendly?For the most part, Yorkiepoos are considered hypoallergenic. However, there is no such thing as a completely hypoallergenic dog, and if someone in your family has allergy concerns, it is good to talk to your doctor.
- Do Yorkiepoos like to swim?Poodles are big-time water dogs, and Yorkies are decent swimmers, so Yorkiepoos are usually cool with water as well. However, many people keep Yorkiepoos as indoor lapdogs, so they may not like water if they are unfamiliar with it.
- Are Yorkiepoos high energy?Yes, Yorkiepoos tend to be higher energy. They need lots of exercise and interaction to keep them happy.
- Are Yorkiepoos hard to house train?Not typically - they are intelligent and eager to please, and a Yorkie Poo puppy should catch on quickly.
