The adult Yorkiepoo can have straight to curly fur and comes in a variety of colors, including cream, red, black, silver, white, apricot, tan, sable, gray and chocolate. The appearance of adult Yorkiepoos varies because they are cross-breed dogs and may take on the physical characteristics of either parent breed.
Yorkiepoos generally grow to 7 to 15 inches tall and weigh between 3 and 14 pounds. They have a life span of 10 to 15 years. Yorkiepoos are a cross between a minature poodle and a Yorshire terrier. They are small, friendly dogs that have lots of energy. They make wonderful family pets and are great for apartment living. They tend to bark a lot and love to show off and do tricks. Yorkiepoos are very intelligent and easy to train. They should be trained with a light touch because they can become stubborn if the training lessons become too harsh. Yorkiepoos bark a lot, and because of this, they can make very good watch dogs. Their bark is loud and shrill and can warn residents of visitors or intruders. Some can be trained to tone down their barking, but most Yorkiepoos bark no matter what. If they feel threatened, some Yorkiepoos have been known to attack larger dogs.
