Yorkie de Tulear

Description

The Yorkie-ton is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Coton de Tulear 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.

"This is Jonah as a 10-week-old puppy. His father is a Yorkie and mom is a Coton de Tulear. We took this picture the night we got him. He is very sweet and smart. He loves our other two dogs! He doesn't realize he's just less than 4 pounds!"

"Jonah the Yorkie-ton at 12 weeks old, weighing 4 1/2 lb. is a Yorkie / Coton de Tulear mix. Most likely he'll be about 9 pounds full grown. He loves playing fetch and wrestling with our other two dogs. He is very sweet and affectionate. He has the silky hair of a Yorkie with the sturdier body of a Coton. He's a wonderful hybrid."
