It is amazing to see Hillary Duff carrying her yorkiepoo to every place she visits including dinner parties and it is equally disheartening to know that some ruthless thief stole ten-week-old yorkiepoo 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 yorkiepoo, we complement their taste.
About Yorkiepoo Breed

Origin of Designer Yorkiepoo Breed
Fondly called as designer breed, yorkiepoos are recently about a decade before become well-known and much appreciated dog breed. With a motive to create a toy-sized dog, having hypoallergenic fur coat; but, which is miles away from the genetic disorders usually noticed in the parent breed this breed was developed. Although it is said that the success achieved with his kind of breeding is limited in no time yorkiepoo became the most admired and loves breed among small dog lovers. One things you have to watch out for with this particular designer dog is ear infections. This is a common problem for both poodles and yorkies because of the hair in their ears so it would only be natural that a dog that is half of each would inherit this issue. There are different options you have to treat this problem but I really like this one, Banixx. This is available at most non chain pet stores and feed stores. As of now, there are no any yorkiepoo groups or registries available but efforts are underway to create the same for all yorkiepoo breeders.
