Buying a Yorkie Poo - Where to Go.

Spending a little time doing research before getting your Yorkie Poo can lead to many happy years.

So, now that you have decided that a Yorkie Poo is the breed for you, and you're off to find that perfect puppy you should be aware that not every ad that says that they have a Yorkie Poo for sale is going to be entirely true. To make sure that you actually get what you are expecting, there are a few things that you should be aware of before committing to this specific cross breed.

As a ''designer'' dog, the Yorkie Poo (or yorkiedoodle) has inherited some qualities from both breeds that were mixed ie a Yorkshire terrier (AKA the Yorkie) and the Poodle. Some of these qualities are very desirable for a family dog: its friendly relation with children and other pets, and its unreserved love for the family, to name but a few. To ensure the best possible mixture of these qualities, you must find a reputable breeder; This is the only way to be sure that only healthy and friendly temperament dogs were mated. If you sense a joyful and harmonious living space full of friendly and overt animals at the breeders, then you have a good chance of knowing that you have found a good breeder.

Another thing that will help you choose the right breeder is the type of Yorkie Poos that they are breeding. First generation cross pups, meaning that a pure Yorkie and a pure Poodle were bred, are considered to be the best choice available. A less desirable mix is that of a Yorkie Poo and Yorkie or a Poodle. This cross breed will ensure that the offspring inherited more traits of the majority breed.

The type of breed also affects the size of a full grown Yorkie Poo. That depends mostly on the Poodle type that was used. Although it is considered that the miniature Poodle is the legitimate breed, people also breed toy and standard ones. Depending on this, typical weight of a Yorkie Poo would be between 5 and 10 lbs with the height also depending on the breeding.

Last but not least, a Yorkie Poo's coat type depends a lot on the cross that was chosen by the breeder. Even in the first generation cross, different coat types can be expected. Long haired Yorkie type or curly Poodle type are two stepping stones from where the percentage of genes in the mix takes over. Basically, it is your own personal taste that matters here.

Even though they are fragile, predisposed to bark a lot and can sometimes be high maintenance, Yorkie Poos are a fine breed. Just be sure you have found a good breeder in order to get the most from your new puppy.
