Description: The Yorkiepoo is generally lively and spunky. He has a zest for life and attaches to his family quickly. This hybrid breed is affectionate and loves to be with people. He is not a breed that does well being locked away in a crate or being left alone for long periods of time. Yorkiepoos crate attention from their human companions and when alone or bored, may bark incessantly or dig on the furniture cushions. He does best in a family who can be with him for much of the time.
Special Needs: A monthly bath complete with conditioner is necessary to maintain a beautiful coat as well as healthy skin.
