A yorkipoo (also called a yorkapoo or yoodle) is a hybrid dog, bred for the first time in the United States, by crossing a Yorkshire Terrier and a poodle (in most cases the miniature poodle or toy poodle), or by breeding yorkipoo to yorkipoo.
Yorkipoos may range in height from 6-9 inches and may weight between 4 and 14 pounds. Depending on which parent the yorkipoo resembles, they may be hypoallergenic. These dogs may be bred from two purebred parents or two hybrid parents. They tend to have a smooth coat, of silky and wavy hair, and can come in a variety of colors. Yorkipoos are also very social with other dogs but may be only OK with children.
Though the Yorkipoo is a hybrid they can be registered with a designer breed / hybrid specific registry.
