Miller the Yorkiepoo at 1 1/2 years old
The Yorkiepoo, also called a Yorkiedoodle or a Yo-Yopoo, is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Yorkshire Terrier and the Poodle. 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.
Pepper the male Yorkipoo at age 8 is an F1-class Yorkipoo (Yorkie / Poodle hybrid). He is also a retired actor. He appeared in 5 episodes of "Touched by an Angel," was runner up at the audition of "Joe Camps Benji" and has several commercials to his credit. He worked in Kevin Costner films as well. "I am not doing anything special now... just sitting on the grass." Pepper wants all his best wishes to go out to Skidboot (the famous Australian Cattle Dog). We will miss this wonderful dog. Skidboot was so cool."

"We naturally took the role as alpha leaders for our Malik. Any human that lets his/her dog run the pack/family did not do his/her research before accepting his/her four-legged friend into the household. This is Malik at 4 months."
"He is a well-trained dog and has been so since he was a puppy. We did not want him raised as the "typical lap dog." He fetches toys by name, can leave a treat on his nose and sprints around the apartment on command. Sometimes he gets overly excited when meeting new people and dogs so we would like to socialize him more often. Otherwise, he has a very good temperament. This is Malik when he was 2 months old and about 2.5 lbs."
