Yorkiepoos, Maltipoos puppies for sale in Ohio
Among the smaller Designer Pups are the Yorkiepoo. The Yorkiepoo is a Terrier-Poodle cross. The personality and confirmation of these cousin breeds are very similar. The size depends on whether a Toy or Miniature Poodle is used and could vary from 3-15 pounds and 7-12 inches at the shoulders. They live on an average of 14 years. These little ones are friendly, self-confident, loyal, energetic, and intelligent. They are brave (too brave for their own good at times) little creatures and make excellent watch dogs. They are good with kids and other pets if raised with them from puppy-hood, but care must be taken that children are supervised when they are young so as not to hurt them because of their small size. Yorkiepoos are well-suited for apartment life and fare well without a yard. They can be strong-willed but highly trainable with patience and consistency. Their coats can be thick or thin, and wavy to curly. Regular brushing and grooming are needed.
The Maltipoo is a dainty little cross between the Maltese and Poodle. His weight is usually is under 10 pounds, and it is common to find them in the t-cup size range, under 5 pounds. The Maltipoo is a great companion dog and gets along well with everyone. They love people and canines alike. The Maltipoo is eager to socialize, trusting and good-tempered. He is gentle, affectionate and good with children but must be supervised with children for his own protection, due to his small stature. They are generally quiet little dogs and do well in small yards and apartment dwellings. These low to no shedding dogs have a fine, silky coat that grows in long, luxurious locks and needs to have regular grooming to keep it mat-free.
We got our first poodle 15 years ago when my children wanted a dog and was looking for one that didn't affect their allergies. Previously, we have only had strays and rescues but with the need for a non shedding dog, I went on the search for a Poodle. We had so much fun with the pup that we considered hiring a stud and having a litter of our own; only to find out that for the price, we could buy another little boy. So we did, and our little venture built from there.
I specialized in chocolate toy Poodles and had a very good champion line going back to San Gai and Callimont Kennels. For many years, I had only three females and a little boy. These dogs were my pets as well as my passion. Although my pups primarily go to people for pets, I did sell a couple every year to breeders, but only sell to in-home breeders.
A few years ago I gave my friend her first male poodle and she started breeding on the same scale as I. Later she bought a Cocker Spaniel and allowed her male to breed. The pups were a hit! Little by little we realized the advantages of "designer pups" and I was introduced to an exciting variety of dogs that did not shed and puppy mixes that my children could tolerate. Thus, our passion for these new “Puppy-poos” was born.
I do all the advertising for the babies. Our homes are hopping and busy, and our children have joined in and earn some college money at the same time. We have introduced the Puggles to our lovely designer pup selection, which are the only smooth coat breed we do. We feel so privileged to raise a variety of adorable critters all year round. I feel so fortunate because I get to do what I enjoy most.
We choose our breeding dogs for health and personality. They are our pets. Our goal is not champion or show quality. Our desire is to produce a sweet tempered, loving personality to be companion dogs. Several of our pups over the years, however, have been trained and used as service and therapy dogs.
We allow our girls to skip their first heat and every third heat thereafter. The pups are born in our home and wean in their – and mom’s - own timing. The pups need to be 8 weeks old to leave. If they are of a very small breed or are nursing longer than usual, we may choose to keep them longer.
I am a member of Breeder's Club, my "kennel" (it’s more of a nursery in my home, rather than an outside kennel) is licensed by the county, and I have regular inspections from the PSCA and a licensed DVM.
At this time, there is no credible registry for the designer pups. Our adult dogs are AKC or CKC registered. You can find reviews for me on Puppy Find and see Sherry’s Posh Pets on Face Book. All pups are de-wormed on a regular basis, vaccinated, and come with a one year health guarantee for any genetic defects because we are confident in the quality of our babies.
We raise our pups for temperament and personality; working on trust and responsiveness from an early age. All pups come with at least their first vaccines, two de-wormings, and are kept current for their age. Pups come with a care pack and instructions, and a two year written health guarantee.
We do not ship our pups but I can meet you at the airport if you want to fly in to pick up your baby. In some circumstances I can deliver your pup or meet you part way.
All of our babies are well loved, pre-spoiled, and well socialized to people and other animals. Our babies deserve good homes, so convince me that you will love your new little one.
So, who says you can’t buy love?
