Yorkiepoo

A yorkiepoo (also called a yorkapoo or yoodle) is a hybrid dog, bred for the first time in the United States, by crossing a Yorkshire Terrier and a poodle (in most cases the miniature poodle or toy poodle), or by breeding yorkiepoo to yorkiepoo.

These dogs may be bred from two purebred parents or two hybrid parents. They tend to have a smooth coat, of silky and wavy hair, and can come in a variety of colors, including gold, blue, white, and particolor. Depending on which parent’s genes are more dominant, the dog may be hypoallergenic and thus be more suited to homes with allergy sufferers.

The yorkipoo is likely to be a confident, loving, playful companion combining terrier boldness and poodle intelligence. Yorkipoos require mental stimulation and social interaction, and enjoy activities like dog agility and learning tricks.

Behavior

Temperament

For their size, yorkipoos are rather energetic. However, their energy is easily expended within the confines of an apartment. Therefore, they do not require the sort of exercise regime that larger dogs need. Yorkipoos are very social dogs. Unlike yorkies and other purebred toys, however, they do not long for constant physical contact. Yorkipoos have no objections to cuddling up on a lap but are also content to simply be nearby. This breed is generally not aggressive and tend to “greet strangers as if they were long lost friends.”

Yorkipoos are smart enough to be trained and take marked pride in learning new commands. They respond best to positive reinforcement, as opposed to negative reinforcement or punishment. When faced with negative reinforcement or punishment, yorkipoos respond with stubbornness. The greatest hurdle to training a yorkipoo is barking. Although they do not tend to sit and yip for no reason, they will almost unfailingly bark when someone knocks at the door. It is unknown if this is to warn that someone is approaching or out of sheer glee to encounter another person.
