The Yorkie Poo is a designer crossbreed between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Toy or Miniature Poodle. Though there is little known of its origin, we do know that is was bred in the United States within the last 20 to 30 years for companionship and its hypoallergenic coat. Its loving, intelligent, energetic personality makes it a great choice for first-time dog owners.

Appearance and Grooming

As with many hybrids the coat of these puppies can vary. Their non -shedding, hypoallergenic coats will always be silky and quite soft, but could also be curly, wavy, or straight. The coat can be many colors including apricot, red and white, black, black and white, black and tan and tri-colored. With rather long coats they need brushing several times each week to prevent tangles and knots. A monthly bath is also recommended to keep your dogs coat soft and clean.

Temperament

Energetic and always ready to play, this little hybrid is affectionate and loves the company of people.  Because they crave the attention of their owner however, it is not a breed that does well when left alone for long periods of time.  If left unattended for long periods of time it becomes lonely and bored, which may lead to incessant barking or digging. 

Family and Companionship 

This fun loving and loyal puppy makes the perfect companion for any person or family that can be with them much of the time. They make an excellent pet for seniors or those who are retired. They can easily thrive in any environment whether in a big home or an apartment. Their low-maintenance needs and sweet personalities make them a favorite with many pet owners.

Exercise

Yorkie Poos require a smaller amount of exercise than most hybrids. Though they are lively and always ready to play a small walk around the block is really all they need to keep trim, and healthy. This makes them a good choice for pet parents with limited mobility. A fenced yard is also an excellent way to keep these pups healthy and happy.

Training and Socialization

Their eager to please and enthusiastic attitudes make for an easily trainable dog. They are extremely intelligent like that of both parent breeds and aim to please their owners. Focusing on positive training methods while working with this crossbreed will reap the most rewards as these pups will not do well with harsh or negative methods. Early socialization is key for this curious breed as they are very interested in everyone and thing around them. Early socialization makes for a well-rounded dog.

Yes, they are an excellent choice. They are very adaptable and eager to please, which means they want to keep their owner happy-making training a breeze. In addition, they thrive on giving lots of love and cuddles.

A Teacup Yorkie Poo is a term used by breeders to focus on the little size of the breed. Smaller sized dogs are chosen from first generation (F1) Yorkie Poos and bred with small purebred Toy Poodles for achieving teacup size. It is often discouraged to breed Teacup sized dogs as they often have a weak bone structure and health problems.

A first generation (F1) Yorkie Poo is the first generation of hybrids bred from a purebred Yorkshire Terrier and purebred Poodle.

The F1B hybrid is 75% Poodle bred with a Yorkie Poo.

Given its weight and its small frame, the stress factor on the bones and joints should not be too high. The most common problem found in dogs, including the Yorkie Poo is when they suffer from a luxating patella. This is a relatively common problem in smaller dogs.

Given that these are mostly indoor pets, they will not need clothing to keep them warm, they will be quite content in their natural state.

Name: Mia Moore (formerly Grace)
Breed: Yorkie Poo
Client: Joy Hall
Loc: Columbia Station Ohio

We have never bought a pet online and had some concerns about the process. I probably called and emailed every couple of days for the weeks prior to picking up our pup. The staff was amazing, patient, and friendly. After bringing our new fur baby (Mia Moore AKA Mi Amor) home, they were in contact with us often and even assisted with an issue of her not eating. She is 4 months old and is well very well adjusted, happy and healthy puppy. I highly recommend Premier Pups for anyone looking for a new fur baby!

We got her back in 2015. She is about to be 4 years old. She has been the most amazing and energetic addition to our home. She is best friends with our 5 year old 90 pound lab mix that we rescued. We can not imagine our lives before her and now without her. She was very easy to train and her fetch game is unbelievable. We have to make her stop chasing the ball so she can catch her breathe she loves it that much. Everyone should experience the joy of a Yorker poo!

Loc: Tampa, Fl

My husband and I had a very bad experience with buying a dog online. Brought the dog and it died two days later. So just image how I felt doing it again. The customer service here at premier pups was soo good I thought it was too good to be true. Even after picking my dog and on the way to the airport to pick him up I thought they was sending me a stuff animal lol. Fast forward almost a year later and my dog is one of the best things that’s happen to me. Gil renamed to Justin is absolutely amazing. I have definitely recommended premier pups to anyone that will listen. Do it you won’t regret it.

Name: Phoebe (formerly “Delilah”)
Breed: Yorkie Poo
Client: Wende Jourdan
Loc: Lewis Center, Ohio

We purchased “Delilah,” now known as Phoebe, seven months ago from Premier Pups. We had never purchased a dog online before and were very hesitant to do so, but after reading all of the reviews we decided to just go for it. We are so glad that we did! Phoebe‘s first vet visit confirmed that our instincts about Premier Pups were accurate. She continues to be incredibly healthy and happy, and is loved beyond measure. Thank you, Premier Pups, for answering all of my many questions beforehand and the follow up afterward. We recommend you to everyone we know that is looking for that extra special addition to their family.

Breed: Yorkie Poo
Client: Lindsey and Mike
Loc: Chappaqua, NY

We love our little Grace so much! I was apprehensive at first as we live in New York and I was concerned about her getting to us from Ohio. Premier was able to arrange for her to be brought to us and they updated us throughout the entire process. She seemed semi- trained already when she came home, she is very smart as well! She is healthy and happy and we couldn’t be happier with her!

Client: Kathy pershall
Loc: Temple, tx

I presently have a Yorkipoo who has been w me for 7 years. After losing a 14 year old Yorkie who was her friend, we needed a playmate. When visiting my daughter in Nashville, I ran into a gentleman holding a 11 week old Morkie. He told me about premier pups. Upon returning home I followed their site and fell in love w little Gwen. He transition was extremely easy and she fits in w our other Yorkipoo perfectly. They look identical. We are very pleased w premier pups and highly recommend them.

Name: Luna (was Delilah)
Breed: Yorkie Poo
Client: Tanaesha
Loc: Severn, MD

We adopted Luna about 2 weeks ago. We absolutely love her and Premier Pups has been awesome in the entire process. They were always available if I had any questions and provided great service. Luna did take honestly about a week to fully adjust to eating hard food and had no interest in eating at all the first 2 days. That was my only concern but she is completely on hard food now and Vet says she is healthy, which is all that matters. She showed signs of being house/potty trained as soon as we got her. Which is also awesome. We all love her and will definitely buy from Premier Pups in the future.

Breed: Yorkie Poo
Client: Elizabeth Yates
Loc: Shelby Township, Michigan

We adopted our fur baby in August of 2015. She was born in June of 2015. We couldn’t be happier with the service and health of our little girl. She is a happy little girl and thriving. I was a little nervous about having her sent by airplane to us, but it worked out well. Can’t thank you enough for giving us the perfect fit!!! The Coco Yates family????
