History

This breed of dog is a hybrid designer dog whose offspring are spawned by crossing a Miniature Pinscher with the Yorkshire terrier. Being a mixed breed, the Yorkie Pin demonstrates many of the inherent traits both the parents. For instance, its body is small and compact, an attribute it shares with the Miniature Pinscher. On the other hand, the dog is very spirited and vivacious like the Yorkie.

Temperament and Personality

The Yorkie Pin comes across as a highly inquisitive, intrepid and happy-go-lucky kind of dog. It always craves for attention and amuses itself by entertaining others. Nevertheless, you should keep a good eye on it, as it is constantly on the lookout for an opportunity to sneak out when the entrance is open. Though suspicious of strangers, it will not bark forcefully to make aware of an outsider’s presence.

Care

Exercise

Since it has a small body, it doesn’t need much exercise or physical exertion to keep fit. As it prefers to keep to itself most of the time, you can leave for work in the belief that it will cause any alarm or come to harm. However, you should not leave the Yorkie Pin alone with kids as it is not a very kid-friendly dog.

Grooming

If the Yorkie Pin has a fur Min Pin then grooming is easy and can be easily taken care of. Just occasional brushing with a soft bristle brush can groom them up. If it has a coat of Yorkie, then it requires trimming and brushing regularly but shedding is low. Trimming of nails, brushing teeth and shampooing can keep them clean and tidy.

They can be placed in a crate if it is unmanageable. Place treats and toys which the puppy can chew while it takes the time to familiarize with its surroundings. Appropriate socialization right from the time when it is very young will help her bond with family members or other pets in the house.
