You Have To Wait To See What Your Yorkie Bichon Mix Puppy Grows Up Into

It might sound odd when you think about it, but with so many cross bred dogs pooping up - both intentional and unintentional - there's really nothing incredible about a Yorkie Bichon mix dog cropping up over time. What this means for potential dog owners, is something completely different of course.

If you're looking at getting a Yorkie Bichon mix puppy but are not sure whether you want one, and more importantly are not sure what the mixed puppy will end up like, well, there's only one thing to say: you're not alone. No one can correctly predict what a mixed breed dog will turn out to be like, and this is true in all cases of mixed breed, or cross bred dogs.

To state the obvious, there's a chance that the dogs could turn out to be predominantly like their Yorkie father/mother, or like their Bichon Frise mother/father. Unlike the Puggle mixed bred dog, for the Yorkie Bichon mix to be considered pure, the parents do not have to be specifically of own breed, i.e. you do not need to have a Bichon Frise mother and a Yorkie father, or vice versa. It can be either mix, as long the parents themselves are pure bred dogs.

And this is where it can sometimes become tricky when cross breeding dogs. Because no one dog breeder will necessarily have the entire lineage of a dog going back hundreds of years, it can be difficult to know for certain whether or not the ancestry of the parents themselves have been cross bred at any point in time. Sometimes genetic traits might hide themselves for a few generations, and might instead decide to manifest itself at this point when the dog breeders are going cross breeding the dogs.

The resulting dog can be one of the cutest things that you have ever seen, or it can be a hodgepodge of odds and ends. This however is very rare in good breeding programs, and if you want a good Yorkie Bichon mix then most likely you will get a good combination of a Yorkie Bichon mix.

What then would be the characteristics of such a dog, never mind the features of the dog? Well, unfortunately that too is not as easy to tell beforehand and most owners will have to wait to see what their Yorkie Bichon mix puppy grows up into: a predominantly Yorkie mix dog, or a predominantly Bichon mix dog. Whatever you do end up with though, you can be assured that you will get a warm and affectionate dog who is very loyal to you, and you really can't ask for any more than that can you?
