YORKIE RUSSELL

History

One of the most popular designer breeds, the Yorkie Russell has been obtained by crossing a Jack Russell Terrier with the Yorkshire terrier. A Yorkie Russell can be distinguished by its bushy tail, somewhat rotund muzzle, droopy ears and dark eyes. Their small and dainty size characterized by a long and soft coat make them ideal lap dogs.

Temperament & Personality

The Yorkie Russell is smart and fearless with an average level of intelligence. They tend to get well with kids and tots. On the flipside, they are unlikely to bark out to alert if and when it spies a stranger or intruder attempting to break in.

The dog is a gregarious breed that enjoys the company of humans and laps up all the attention that showers on it. If the pet feels neglected or shunned, it will try to attract your attention by whining or yelping and go back to its resting place if you continue to ignore it.
