Exercise

The Yorkie Poo’s small stature means they won’t need high-intensity workouts, but they will need daily playtime for both physical exercise and mental stimulation.

Because of their compact size, it’s possible for Yorkie Poos to get sufficient exercise by strolling around the block or playing around at a local park. In fact, much of their exercise needs can even be met inside the home, which is one of the reasons this breed is popular with condo and apartment dwellers.

We recommend 30 minutes of activity per day and about 6 miles of walking per week.

Appearance

Overall charming and enchanting in appearance, Yorkie Poos have friendly brown eyes and a short, blunt snout.

Yorkie Poos that favor their Poodle parents can have large tufts of hair hanging from their limbs. Yorkie Poos that favor the Yorkshire Terrier genes tend to have multi-colored coats.

Because our Yorkie Poos have no undercoat, they are considered hypoallergenic and can be an ideal fit for those with allergies.

The smaller to medium size and its silky, soft coat are two features that are consistent in Yorkie Poos regardless of their parentage. Coats will vary in length, and they can be one of several colors:

  • Cream
  • Brown
  • Black
  • Multicolored

They are 7 to 15 inches in height and 3 to 14 pounds in weight.

Temperament

Yorkie Poos enjoy being active. They are friendly to all and loving with their families.

They are curious and intelligent, and they respond well to training and positive reinforcement.

Their confidence can get them in trouble with other dogs sometimes. They forget their true size because they see themselves as much bigger dogs than they actually are. Early training and socialization will help them handle this and all kinds of situations.

This breed is highly intelligent because mental acuity runs in both parent breeds. They are able to learn new concepts very quickly, and they follow directions very well.

They have a charming appearance and a lively, social personality to match. They are lively and social
