Looking for a Yorkiepoo puppy for sale? Sometimes referred to as a Yorkie Poo, this beloved designer breed is a cross of the Yorkshire Terrier and the Poodle breed.

While they like fun and games, they only require moderate outdoor exercise to stay happy.
While the history of these dogs is not well-documented, like most designer breeds these pups grew in popularity over the last 20 years. They are prized for their warmth, personality, and even temperament.
The Yorkiepoo is recognized by the ACHC (American Canine Hybrid Club) and can also be registered through IDCR (International Designer Canine Registry) and ICA (International Canine Association, Inc).

If you want to buy a Yorkiepoo puppy, it’s smart to do a little research first. These puppies are active, fearless, and love attention. Both Yorkshire Terriers and Poodles are known for their intelligence, so this keen hybrid is relatively easy to train.
These small bundles of joy do well with children and most other pets. However, these pups are quite small and fragile, so they may not be the best choice for homes with small children.
The Yorkiepoo has a strong watchdog instinct and will bark at strangers. However, they are not aggressive and usually warm to strangers quickly. These dogs are full of fun and are natural clowns. They like showing off, but at the end of the day, these are pets that enjoy snuggling up close with their owners.
If you’re considering adopting a Yorkiepoo puppy, make sure you understand this breed’s health considerations. Because this hybrid has not been around for long, there is some uncertainty about health issues. However, using the parent breeds as starting points, some assumptions can be made.
This small designer breed may be susceptible to dental disease. Because of their small jaws, their teeth may become crowded. Other health concerns to watch for are:
- Eye Issues (Cataracts)
- Luxating Patella
Yorkiepoos may have eye discharge, so wipe eyes with a clean, damp cloth once a day, or as needed. With all dogs, it is important to stay current on shots and vaccinations. Schedule regular checkups with your veterinarian.
Coat & Coat Care
Both Poodles and Yorkshire Terriers are hypoallergenic. The Yorkiepoo’s coat is fine, silky, curly, and soft to the touch. Shedding should be minimal or non-existent.
To keep your dog looking good, and to prevent matting, daily brushing is required. Clipping every 6 – 8 weeks will also help control matting and maintain a healthy coat. A monthly bath is required to maintain the luxurious coat and to keep skin healthy.
