Among the smaller Designer Pups are the Yorkiepoo, Silkiepoo, and Yorkiechons. Yorkiepoos and Silkiepoos are two separate hybrids resulting from a Yorkshire Terrier-Poodle cross or a Silky Terrier-Poodle cross. The personality and confirmation of these cousin breeds are very similar. The size, again, depends on whether a Toy or Miniature Poodle is used and could vary from 3-15 pounds and 7-12 inches at the shoulders. They live on an average of 14 years. These little ones are friendly, self-confident, loyal, energetic, and intelligent. They are brave (too brave for their own good at times) little creatures and make excellent watch dogs. They are good with kids and other pets if raised with them from puppy-hood, but care must be taken that children are supervised when they are young so as not to hurt them because of their small size. Both Yorkiepoos and Silkiepoos are well-suited for apartment life and fare well without a yard. They can be strong-willed but highly trainable with patience and consistency. Their coats can be thick or thin, and wavy to curly. The Silkiepoo will have a silky feel to his coat. Regular brushing and grooming are needed... TRUTH ABOUT BOYS AND GIRLS: There's a little known secret that us breeders hold. Generally speaking, boys are easier going, not as hyper, and more eager to please. They are not as stubborn and tend to like all people rather than acclimate to just one. Most people don’t realize that girls can be territorial, are often more aggressive, and more protective than a male. A female can also mark her territory and be the Alpha dog. Something to think about….. ABOUT US: We got our first poodle 12 years ago when my children wanted a dog and was looking for one that didn't affect their allergies. We had so much fun with the pup that we considered hiring a stud and having a litter of our own; only to find out that for the price, we could buy another dog. So we did, and our little venture built from there. I specialized in chocolate toy Poodles and had a very good champion line going back to San Gai and Callimont. For many years I had only three females and a little boy. These dogs were my pets as well as my passion. Although my pups primarily go to people for pets, I do sell a couple every year to breeders, but only sell to in-home breeders. A few years ago I gave my friend, Carol her first male poodle and she has since started breeding on the same scale as I. Later she bought a Cocker Spaniel and allowed her male to breed. The pups were a hit! Little by little we realized that the "Designer pups" - are highly sought after, and I was introduced to an exciting variety of dogs that did not shed and puppy mixes that my children could tolerate. Thus, our passion for "Designer Pups" and “Puppy-poos” was born. I do all the advertising for the babies. Our homes are hopping and busy, and our children have joined in and earn some college money at the same time. Eventually, a couple other friends have joined us and now we are four. We have introduced the Puggles to our lovely designer pup selection and between all of us, we are privileged to raise a variety of adorable critters all year round. I feel so fortunate because I get to do what I enjoy most. Our adult dogs are AKC or CKC registered. All pups are de-wormed on a regular basis, vaccinated, and come with a one year health guarantee for any genetic defects because we are confident in the quality of our babies. All of our babies are well loved, pre-spoiled, and well socialized to people and other animals. Our babies deserve good homes, so convince me that you will love your new little one. So, who says you can’t buy love?
