Yorkillon History

The Yorkshire Terrier is a toy-sized, hypoallergenic, and predominantly white terrier. It is the smallest of the terrier group, and one of the smallest of the toy dogs. The Yorkshire Terrier is the state dog of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and is one of the eight official “Pets of America”. The Yorkshire Terrier was originally bred to hunt and kill rats, especially the ones living in textile mills. The breed was standardized in the 1800s by Edward Laverack, a breeder from Huddersfield, England. The popularity of the Yorkshire Terrier soared in the mid-to-late 1800s, when Queen Victoria began breeding them. The popularity of the Yorkshire Terrier was so great that, by the late 1800s, the Kennel Club of England was forced to limit the number of new puppies registered.

Yorkillon Activity Requirements

The Yorkipoo is a cross between the Yorkshire Terrier and the Toy or Miniature Poodle. They are a small, compact, and playful dog that makes a great family pet. The Yorkipoo is not a very active breed. While they do not need a ton of exercise, they do require some. A short walk around the neighborhood or a game of fetch may be enough to keep your Yorkipoo happy and healthy. If you are looking for a small, low-upkeep dog, the Yorkipoo might be a good choice. While they do require some exercise and interaction, they are not very demanding. They are best suited to people who have time to play with their dog, but aren’t looking for an activity partner.
