Yorkie Pin

Yorkshire Terrier / Miniature Pinscher Hybrid Dogs

Information and Pictures

"This is my little princess Miss Kandra. Her mother is full Min Pin and her father is full Yorki. She is very loving and protective. She never strays far from me. The only time she runs is to protect the yard from passersby. She is more like her father. She is mellow, less muscular and more petite in physical appearance. She also doesn't shed as much and has more hair than her brother. She also has that little "prance walk" when she comes to me. That is why she got the nickname as "Li’l Ms. Thang."”

Other Names



The Yorkie Pin is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Yorkshire Terrier and the Miniature Pinscher. 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.

"This is Miss Kandra, my Yorkie / Min Pin mix at 2 years old. She is very loyal to me and our house. She also thinks that she is bigger than anything around!

"This is a picture of Ms. Kandra's brother Jipper. He takes after his mom more than his dad. He has a ton of energy, and will chase my 1-year-old Lab everywhere. He loves to run in the woods and disappear with him for hours. He is also very strong and has a very muscular frame. He sheds a lot more than his sister. He has more of a temper than his sister, but is still great with kids. If no one will play with him, he has a funny habit of throwing the toy up himself to catch. He has much more personality than his sister."
