The Yorkinese is a cross breed, or 'designer' breed, which means that Yorkinese puppies have ancestry in two different purebred dog breeds.  In the case of a Yorkinese, the dog is a cross between a Pekingese and a Yorkshire Terrier, hence the name, Yorkinese.  Both Pekingese and Yorkshire Terriers (Yorkies) are members of the toy breed group, so you can expect your Yorkinese to be a small dog, usually in the range of 6-10 pounds when fully grown.  Designer (cross breed) puppies generally take characteristics from both of their ancestral breeds, but usually have an appearance closer to one of its ancestral breeds.  However, within a single litter of mixed breed Yorkinese puppies, one puppy's appearance can more closely resemble a purebred Yorkie while another puppy from the same litter can more closely resemble a purebred Pekingese puppy.

As with all cross breed dogs, Yorkinese puppies will take traits from both of their ancestral breeds. Yorkies, like all terriers, are brave, curious and energetic. Pekingese possess dignity and intelligence and are affectionate and good nature, making them good family pets and companions. You can expect your Yorkinese puppy to have some, if not all of these traits. Yorkinese are generally a small dog since they are bred from members of the toy group and therefore are easier to travel with than larger dogs. However, even though Pekingese are small dogs, they are well known for being sturdy dogs and Yorkinese will therefore be well suited as a family pet, being able to handle small children. As a smaller dog, Yorkinese require limited exercise, but they do enjoy walks. Yorkinese are well suited as apartment dogs because of their small size. Yorkinese puppies are very gentle mannered, extremely trustworthy and loyal after you have earned their respect. They are also very affectionate dogs. Yorkinese do require some grooming, as they can have a long coat if it is not trimmed properly.
