These adorable toy dogs stand at 7 to 15 inches tall and weigh between 3 to 14 pounds (depending on the Toy or Mini size of their Poodle parent). The Yorkie Poo has a well-proportioned sturdy-built body, a cute button nose, and dark shiny eyes. Their ears can resemble that of the Poodle parent or the Yorkshire Terrier parent. The Yorkie Poo sports a minimal to non-shedding coat that can be curly to wavy or straight. The Yorkie Poo coat is long, silky, and smooth, and comes in various colors and color combinations that include white, black, tan, brown, apricot, red, or silver, with various patterns and markings.

Many Yorkie Poo dog owners attest that their sweet dogs are impartial to the type of activities they take part in as long as they are with their human family.

Yorkie Poo Reviews
Yorkie Poo Puppy
in Philadelphia, PA
I can not rave over Premier Pups enough! First off, they made the entire purchasing process simple and stress free. The workers were kind and patient with my questions. You can tell everyone who works here loves animals. Even down to the delivery drivers. Knowing my pup was traveling from Ohio to the Philadelphia area, I assumed my pup would need a bath as soon as I got him. But nope, Winston arrived in prestine condition. It was obvious the delivery team went above and beyond to keep the pups in prime condition during their ride. My vet was even stunned with the amount of care given from Premier Pups - she said she never saw anything like it before. Winston (formally Diego) is the light of my life and has adjusted so well to being home. I wish I had unlimited time (and money haha) to just keep getting more Premier Pups.
Mia Moore (formerly Grace)
Yorkie Poo Puppy
in Columbia Station Ohio
We have never bought a pet online and had some concerns about the process. I probably called and emailed every couple of days for the weeks prior to picking up our pup. The staff was amazing, patient, and friendly. After bringing our new fur baby (Mia Moore AKA Mi Amor) home, they were in contact with us often and even assisted with an issue of her not eating. She is 4 months old and is well very well adjusted, happy and healthy puppy. I highly recommend Premier Pups for anyone looking for a new fur baby!
Luna (was Delilah)
Yorkie Poo Puppy
in Severn, MD
We adopted Luna about 2 weeks ago. We absolutely love her and Premier Pups has been awesome in the entire process. They were always available if I had any questions and provided great service. Luna did take honestly about a week to fully adjust to eating hard food and had no interest in eating at all the first 2 days. That was my only concern but she is completely on hard food now and Vet says she is healthy, which is all that matters. She showed signs of being house/potty trained as soon as we got her. Which is also awesome. We all love her and will definitely buy from Premier Pups in the future.

We adopted our fur baby in August of 2015. She was born in June of 2015. We couldn’t be happier with the service and health of our little girl. She is a happy little girl and thriving. I was a little nervous about having her sent by airplane to us, but it worked out well. Can’t thank you enough for giving us the perfect fit!!! The Coco Yates family????
Phoebe (formerly “Delilah”)
Yorkie Poo Puppy
in Lewis Center, Ohio
We purchased “Delilah,” now known as Phoebe, seven months ago from Premier Pups. We had never purchased a dog online before and were very hesitant to do so, but after reading all of the reviews we decided to just go for it. We are so glad that we did! Phoebe‘s first vet visit confirmed that our instincts about Premier Pups were accurate. She continues to be incredibly healthy and happy, and is loved beyond measure. Thank you, Premier Pups, for answering all of my many questions beforehand and the follow up afterward. We recommend you to everyone we know that is looking for that extra special addition to their family.

What is a Toy Doodle breed?
Yorkie Poo History
The Yorkie Poo is a designer crossbreed of a purebred Yorkshire Terrier and a purebred Toy or Miniature Poodle. The Yorkie Poo Doodle Breed originated in the United States a little over 20 years ago and has seen a steady rise in popularity ever since. These cute dogs have made their presence known worldwide with their strong loyal tendencies, joyful personalities, and sweet nature. They are renowned competitors in dog sports, famous Instagram stars, amazing therapy dogs, and greatly loved companion pets. As the fur-baby of two exceedingly bright dog breeds, the Yorkie Poo inherits an amazing set of qualities that include great agility, big brains, a friendly disposition, and an affectionate nature from the Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle parent breeds. Because Yorkie Poos are fairly new in the Designer Doodle World, they don’t have much breed history. We can take a look at the history of the Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle parent breeds to better understand the Yorkie Poo Doodle Breed.
The Yorkshire Terrier, also known as Yorkie, is one of the most versatile small dog breeds around. Although not as ancient as other small breeds, Yorkies have enriched their history with jobs like rodent hunters in the mines of Yorkshire, war heroes, the first known therapy dogs, show dogs, and luxury pets for royalty. Yorkies arrived in the United States in 1870 and joined the American Kennel Club soon after. Today, the gorgeous little Yorkshire Terrier is one of the most popular breeds across Europe and the United States.
The Poodle also referred to as Caniche in France and Pudel or Pudelin in Germany, is one of the most ancient breeds in the canine kingdom. The lovely Poodles worked as military dogs, circus performers, therapy dogs, hunters, and many more jobs in which they proved their amazing canine skills. The Poodle breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1887 and has been since named the National Dog of France, Best in Show at Westminster, and classified as the second most intelligent dog breed in the world.
The Yorkie Poo is currently recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club and the Designer Dog Kennel Club.
