Mocha the Australian Yorkshire Terrier at 1 year old—"My Australian Yorkshire Terrier is a sturdy little terrier mix from a purebred Yorkshire Terrier dad and a purebred Australian Terrier mom. Her coat is black and tan in color and a harsh texture. This puppy will weigh 14-16 lbs. when full grown. She is very friendly, affectionate and loyal to her owner. She is keen, confident, alert and loves to play with kids of all ages. Mocha keeps herself busy running and playing in her fenced-in backyard. She loves playing in the water and taking brisk walks. She is a hunter and must be tightly fenced-in and kept on a leash for walking."

Aussie Yorkie Terrier


The Australian Yorkshire Terrier is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Australian Terrier and the Yorkshire Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
