A Yorkshire terrier is a breed of a small dog that weighs from 4-7 pounds. They can also be known as “Yorkies.” Did you know in the 1850’s, weavers in northern England developed the breed? They wanted a dog small enough to fit in a pocket, but also bold enough to kill rats. I don’t know why they wanted a dog small enough to fit in their pockets! Because they were so small, they sometimes were also called a toy dog. A steel-blue with a golden-tan were the usual colors for the coat. Yorkshire terriers usually have long, silky hair.
A poodle is a breed of a dog with a curly coat. Did you know poodles can weigh from 3 to 60 pounds? There are three main types of poodles depending on their height: miniature poodles, standard poodles and toy poodles. It is thought that poodles first appeared in Germany in the 1500′s. The usual colors for a poodle are white, black, gray, blue, brown, cream, and apricot.
Based on all my research,I can see that my dog is definitely a mix between both types of dogs. But I can’t see which one he is more of- a yorkie or a poodle!
