Yorkie-Pin: A successful combination

When you mix the best of two breeds, a winner is bound to emerge - and that's exactly what you get with a mix of Miniature Pinscher and Yorkshire Terrier, or "Yorkie-Pin" for short. These little powerhouses are intelligent, active and affectionate, making them ideal companions for families with children and other pets.

These pups are relatively low maintenance, but need plenty of exercise to stay healthy and happy. A few walks or play sessions a day are a must, and Yorkie Pins also enjoy playing fetch and tug-of-war. As long as they get enough mental and physical stimulation, they are usually content to snuggle up on the couch with their favorite human at the end of the day.

If you're toying with the idea of adding a Yorkie Pin to your family, do some research before bringing home your new pup. Unfortunately, because these dogs are so popular, there are many unscrupulous breeders* and pet stores that are more interested in making a quick buck than making sure the puppies they sell are healthy and well behaved. However, most of the time you will find Yorkie pins as random litters and not from breeders.

With a little planning and preparation, you're sure to find the perfect Yorkie pin for your family - and you'll have a furry friend for life.
