The Yorkie Poo is a designer crossbreed between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Toy or Miniature Poodle. Though there is little known of its origin, we do know that is was bred in the United States within the last 20 to 30 years for companionship and its hypoallergenic coat. Its loving, intelligent, energetic personality makes it a great choice for first-time dog owners.
Appearance and Grooming
As with many hybrids the coat of these puppies can vary. Their non -shedding, hypoallergenic coats will always be silky and quite soft, but could also be curly, wavy, or straight. The coat can be many colors including apricot, red and white, black, black and white, black and tan and tri-colored. With rather long coats they need brushing several times each week to prevent tangles and knots. A monthly bath is also recommended to keep your dogs coat soft and clean.
Energetic and always ready to play, this little hybrid is affectionate and loves the company of people. Because they crave the attention of their owner however, it is not a breed that does well when left alone for long periods of time. If left unattended for long periods of time it becomes lonely and bored, which may lead to incessant barking or digging.
Family and Companionship
This fun loving and loyal puppy makes the perfect companion for any person or family that can be with them much of the time. They make an excellent pet for seniors or those who are retired. They can easily thrive in any environment whether in a big home or an apartment. Their low-maintenance needs and sweet personalities make them a favorite with many pet owners.
Yorkie Poos require a smaller amount of exercise than most hybrids. Though they are lively and always ready to play a small walk around the block is really all they need to keep trim, and healthy. This makes them a good choice for pet parents with limited mobility. A fenced yard is also an excellent way to keep these pups healthy and happy.
Training and Socialization
Their eager to please and enthusiastic attitudes make for an easily trainable dog. They are extremely intelligent like that of both parent breeds and aim to please their owners. Focusing on positive training methods while working with this crossbreed will reap the most rewards as these pups will not do well with harsh or negative methods. Early socialization is key for this curious breed as they are very interested in everyone and thing around them. Early socialization makes for a well-rounded dog.

A Teacup Yorkie Poo is a term used by breeders to focus on the little size of the breed. Smaller sized dogs are chosen from first generation (F1) Yorkie Poos and bred with small purebred Toy Poodles for achieving teacup size. It is often discouraged to breed Teacup sized dogs as they often have a weak bone structure and health problems.
A first generation (F1) Yorkie Poo is the first generation of hybrids bred from a purebred Yorkshire Terrier and purebred Poodle.
The F1B hybrid is 75% Poodle bred with a Yorkie Poo.
Given its weight and its small frame, the stress factor on the bones and joints should not be too high. The most common problem found in dogs, including the Yorkie Poo is when they suffer from a luxating patella. This is a relatively common problem in smaller dogs.
Given that these are mostly indoor pets, they will not need clothing to keep them warm, they will be quite content in their natural state.
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????
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.
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.
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.
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!
