Description

The Yoranian, also called a Yorky Pom, is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Pomeranian 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.

"Yoshi the Yoranian at 10 months old, weighing 6 pounds is a very happy dog. He loves everybody. He loves licking everyone's faces. Yoshi can sleep anywhere and in any awkward position. Whenever he hears us come home he always dances (stands on two legs and moves his front legs up and down; looks like he's doing the salsa) by the gate."
