Description

The Yorkie Russell is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Yorkshire Terrier and the Jack Russell 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.

Baxter Ricky Bobby Bromstrup the Yorkie Russell at 5 years old— "Baxter is a 5-year-Old Yorkie / Russell. He weighs 20 lbs. He is just the sweetest, smartest, most loyal dog I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. This is a really great hybrid. He is the one and only star of the show at home. He gets along with all dogs and cats and loves to play fetch, go for walks and ride in the car! I don't know what else to say. He is perfectly awesome. Thanks for meeting him."

Pippin the Yorkie Russell puppy at 10 weeks old with his littermates—their mom is a Yorkie and dad a Jack Russell. "Pippin is very, very active, but also very, very affectionate. He loves attention and whines A LOT, like a Yorkie ;) He also loves new people and thinks everything is his to play with. Shedding is minimal. We do have a cat and Pippin loves to play with him, but gets jealous when you give the cat attention. He even whines when he sees my husband and me share a kiss or hug and always has to be part of the mix!"
