Yorkiepoo

I was hesitant the whole time afraid I was being scammed. The out sourcing of their call center made me super suspicious.. It ended up being legit! We love our little guy so much. Paid a crazy price but you get what you pay for and he is so good. He is healthy and so sweet. I feel like his breeder or who ever taught him a few things. He is really oool.

Yorkiepoo Characteristics

Smart, gentle, and full of love, the Yorkiepoo makes a great companion dog and family friend. While very energetic, these dogs make a fantastic pet for even the most novice pet parents.  Yorkipoos are considered highly trainable, but early obedience training and socialization are key to having a well-adjusted pup. 

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Yorkiepoo was originally bred as a companion dog for those who are allergic to animals. The Yorkiepoo was also meant to be a small breed that did not suffer the same diseases as the Yorkshire Terrier or Poodle, both of which are prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding.  These dogs are commonly found with white, black, or brown coats.
 
The perfect size to be taken anywhere, the Yorkiepoo can stand between 7-15 inches at the shoulder and weigh anywhere between 3-14 lbs. While Poodles tend to latch onto their owners, the Yorkshire Terrier has a strong independent streak. Yorkiepoos can swing either way – yours might turn out to be a constant lap accessory, or rather independent, depending on the personality of its parents.  
 
Here’s something to watch out for: Many dogs who weigh less than ten pounds believe they are much larger than they actually are and are not afraid to pick fights with large dogs. To help ensure your Yorkipoo doesn’t find itself in trouble, introduce him to large dogs under close supervision and be prepared to break up any potential quarrels. If you plan on taking your Yorkiepoo to a dog park, keep a constant eye on your dog, as it's not unheard of for small dogs to be viewed as prey for untrained larger breeds.

How dog-friendly is Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
