Your Yorkie-Chon Puppies Are Here!
Designer breed dogs are the latest craze and we’re here for it!
Below is our highlight of one of the popular ones, Yorkie-Chon puppies. This is the adorable blend of a Yorkshire Terrier and Bichon Frise. They’re also known as a Yo-Chon, Yorkshire Frise, or the Borkie.
The Temperaments of Yorkies and Bichons
Bichon puppies love to be in the spotlight and are very good with people, but admittedly can be destructive when left alone. Yorkies lean towards being outgoing, as well. Yorkie-Chon puppies may display a playful mix of these two personalities.
Yorkiechon puppies are very intelligent, as both of their parents come from intelligent breeds of dogs. They generally respond well to training.
Both tend to be barkers, so that means there’s a higher chance that Yorkie-Chon puppies are barkers. Of course, like with any dog, they can be trained to not do so.
All in all, the pleasant personalities of both breeds are very similar, making for pleasant Yorkie-Chon puppies.
The Health of Yorkie-chon Puppies
Yorkie-Chon puppies are generally healthy dogs, with a long lifespan of 12 to 15 years! If these precious puppies fall ill to genetic diseases or ailments, it is most commonly afflicted with a syndrome called Legg-Calvé-Perthes. This disease leads to an insufficient amount of blood supply to the thigh bones of the hind legs. Surgery can easily resolve this issue. A few other inherited diseases and syndromes include dental hazards, slipped kneecaps, progressive retinal atrophy, and sensitivity to vaccinations.
Typical Size and Physical Features of a Yorkie Bichon Mix
Yorkie-Chon puppies might range anywhere from 8 to 11 inches tall and weigh anywhere between 4 and 12 pounds. Most Yorkie-Chon puppies are either pure black or pure white. There are some, however that will be dark brown and blonde colors. Some of these might even have dark coloring, except for white on their stomach and faces. Their coats will generally be a mix of both breeds and these babies aren’t shy about shedding! They definitely shed, so you’ll want to invest in shedding tools. They also require professional grooming, as the Bichon has wooly hair that is known to mat frequently and easily.
