It is amazing to see Hillary Duff carrying her Yorkie Poo to every place she visits including dinner parties. But, it is equally disheartening to know that some ruthless thief stole ten-week-old Yorkie Poo bought by John Schneider to gift her daughter on Christmas Eve. We all love dogs so when a celebrity is seen with her/his dog we automatically start admiring them and if the dog is Yorkie Poo, we complement their taste.
About the Yorkie Poo Breed
There is interesting history for this name because there are different names to this same breed like Yorkiedoodle, Yo-Yopoo, Yorkie-Poo, Yorkipoo and Yorkie Poo. You have to understand that all these names existed as it a cross between Yorkshire terrier and Poodle and not a purebred.
Origin of Designer Yorkie Poo Breed
Fondly dubbed as a designer breed, Yorkie Poo are well-known and much-appreciated. But, it wasn’t always so. Like many designer dog breeds, the Yorkie Poo has been highly bred with specific motivations.
Many people wanted a toy-sized dog but didn’t want the genetic disorders that came with the parent breeds. The Yorkie Poo also has a gorgeous hypollergenic fur coat.

If trained appropriately (because they are completely trainable), they will intelligently and obediently obey their owner’s orders. On the other hand, being small and lovely they have, inborn tendency to be pampered so they like to see the world from their owner’s lap rather than exploring.
It is good if you start socializing your Yorkie Poo as early as possible. That’s because they are fond of meeting other people, playing with other dogs, and experiencing different sounds, sights, and experiences.
