A relatively new addition to the world of designer crossbreeds, the Coton Yorkie — or Yorkie-ton — is a lovable companion that’s a great choice for someone who’s looking for a small dog with big personality. This breed is a cross between the popular Yorkshire terrier and Coton de Tulear dogs and is small in stature, weighing 5 to 11 pounds and growing to be 8 to 11 inches tall. Their long, silky coats need daily brushing, but having them shaved at the groomer’s is also a lower-maintenance option.
The Coton Yorkie is a friendly, social dog that enjoys being around its family, or new friends, as much as possible. For this reason, this isn’t a breed that should be left alone for long periods of time as this can cause anxiety and problem behaviors like excessive barking. The Coton Yorkie is smart and knows it, which can lead to a stubborn streak. However, they love to please their owners and enjoy learning new tricks. Their small size and manageable energy levels make them well-suited to apartment living or households with elderly family members.
When it’s time to add a new pet to your family, the Coton Yorkie is an adorable option that fits well into most homes. Look for your next dog at Puppies Online.
