Is this dog right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Yorkiepoo; Yorkie-Poo; Yorkiedoodle; Yo-Yopoo; Yoodle

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Yorkie-poo is a cross between a pure Yorkshire Terrier and a pure Toy or Miniature Poodle, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. There's no denying that this little bundle of energy is one of the most popular of the so-called "designer" cross-breeds. They can be the right size for apartments, and they're absolutely adorable. Expect that terrier energy. This highly social dog loves to play. If you're too busy to keep up, you might want to look elsewhere.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but in general with the Yorkie-poo you can expect an adorable little toy with a low-shedding coat.

Behavior / temperament:
With any mixed-breed, there can be variation in the dog's personality. But with the Yorkie-poo, you can usually expect a highly social, people-oriented pet who expects to be involved in all of the family fun.
