This breed was created in the United States by crossing a Yorkshire Terrier and a Poodle. It may be bred from either two purebred parents or two hybrid parents and retains its puppy size even when it grows into an adult. It was originally designed to be a companion dog that is suitable to live with allergy sufferers and to also create a small dog without the disease of both the Yorkshire and poodle.
Yorkiepoo is a happy dog with lots of confidence regardless of its small size; it is a breed that is very happy and comfortable in its own skin. It has a gentle and loving disposition with an easy-going temperament. It is also less demanding than many other dogs its size. Its temperament can be dependent on hereditary, training and socialization. With the right blend of all these, Yorkiepoo is a dog with a nice temperament.
This breed can thrive just fine in any kind of home and makes an excellent companion for elderly people. However, it is not recommended for homes with little children because of their small size and frailness. Yorkiepoo is too small to live outside and should be kept indoors for its well being. It enjoys being in the company of people and also participating in family activities. Yorkiepoo also enjoys looking at the world from its owner’s laps.

Hair should also be brushed away from its eyes to prevent irritation; either this or the hair around its eyes can be trimmed with a pair of scissors. Yorkiepoos coat should be trimmed regularly to whatever preferred length and should be bathed only when necessary.
