Little Ebony


Ebony - black and white Yorkipoo

This week’s Klip Joint featured dog is Ebony, a cute, little black and white Yorkipoo.

The coat of the Yorkipoo can range from straight to curly, and it should be luxuriously soft and silky in texture — running your fingers through it is heavenly.

Although it’s different for every Yorkipoo, a puppy resulting from a multigenerational breeding (a Yorkipoo crossed with another Yorkipoo) is supposed to be odorless and nonshedding — although “nonshedding” is a fantasy, since every dog on the planet sheds at least a tiny bit. The Yorkipoo produces little dander, which is actually the trait that appeals to the allergic owner.

The Yorkipoo is seen in a wide variety of colors, including cream, black, white, red, sable, apricot, tan, chocolate, gray, and silver. This versatile boy can sport multiple colors and a wide variety of markings, including black with tan points.

Although he’s considered to be a non- to low-shedder, the Yorkipoo requires care in keeping that fine coat silky and healthy. Brushing him daily wards off tangles. Brush the hair away from the eyes to prevent it from becoming an irritant, which it will certainly be if this task is neglected. You can also protect his eyes by trimming the hair with a pair of scissors.

His coat should be trimmed regularly to whatever length you prefer; that’s the beauty of a designer breed. No one is going to say you’ve clipped him incorrectly, because there is no “correct” cut.

The Yorkipoo is an active, affectionate, fun-loving dog who relishes the company of people. He is loving and loyal, a true companion dog who enjoys participating in family activities. He’s confident, thanks to his terrier heritage, but usually he’s also easygoing and less demanding than many other small breeds.

    Hi there,
    I have Morkie Poo and she has shorter straight hair. I have pictures of her on my blog. Do you have any grooming advice? Is it ok If I bath her 2x per month? I have not noticed skin irritation when I bath her 2x per month.
    Thanks for your feedback!
