Yoranian Breed History

The Yoranian shares the all the good characteristics of his parent breeds. The Pomeranian is a toy dog that is descended from a much larger, Spitz-type dog. The Spitz dogs were bred in harsh, Arctic conditions. Despite its small size, the Pomeranian shares the tough personality of his much larger ancestors. The fluffy canine is believed to have received his name from a place known as Pomerania, which is located in the region of Northern Germany and Poland. The breed can be traced back to 1764. During the late 1700s, the members of the British Royal Family brought two of the small dogs, Mercury and Phoebe, to England. Over time, the breed became very popular throughout the United Kingdom. In 1912, two Pomeranians embarked on the fateful journey of the Titanic. When the ship went down, they were lucky enough to survive. The Pomeranian breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1900 and entered into the Toy Group. The diminutive Yorkshire Terrier has a big, fearless attitude. He was bred more than a 100 years ago to hunt rodents in the mines around Yorkshire, England. They also became popular dogs to take on fox and badger hunts because they could easily enter the prey’s den. Originally, the Yorkie was known as the ‘Broken Haired Scotch’ but in 1874, the breed's name was changed to the Yorkshire Terrier. During the latter part of the 1800s, Yorkies started to be imported into the United States. In 1878, the American Kennel Club officially recognized the breed.

Yoranian Breed Appearance

The Yoranian is a cream to apricot color. His fur is a bit wiry and gives him a scruffy appearance. His ears stand up and give him an alert experience. The little guy's eyes are usually dark and his small button nose is black. The tail of the Yoranian is small and tends to stand up over his back in a kind of flip position. His tiny face closely resembles that if the Pomeranian with a dainty muzzle. This cute hybrid knows where he is going and has a gait that shows it.

Yoranian Breed Maintenance

The Yoranian does shed, but not excessively.  Usually, brushing him daily is all that is required to remove loose hair and prevent mats. He does not need regular grooming. Many owners brush their dogs' teeth a few times a week in an effort to prevent plaque build which can lead to gum disease and possible tooth loss. This tiny dog is usually very active, so he often wears his toenails down to a manageable length, However, if he does not naturally keep his toenails short, then you will need to clip them every month. His upright ears usually stay clean, but if any debris builds up on the inside of the ear flaps, then it can be quickly wiped away with a cloth

Yoranian Temperament

The Yoranian is a fearless little character who adores his owners but is a bit wary of strangers. He can often become overprotective if he is not socialized enough.  Unlike many small dogs, when raised around children, the Yoranian tends to get along well with kids. Interaction must be supervised though, as he could get hurt if handled roughly or improperly. He also enjoys other dogs and cats. Care should be taken when introducing him to small animals, such as hamsters, because his Terrier prey drive might kick in.

Yoranian Activity Requirements

A once a day walk is usually sufficient for the Yoranian. He tends to be a rambunctious little guy that enjoys going for a walk and playing with his toys. It is advised that you keep a ready supply of toys, especially chew toys, available for the little guy to occupy himself. An afternoon at a dog park is often ideal to make this little scamp happy because he can run and interact with other dogs. He is very smart and can be taught tricks easily and excels at obedience. When the weather is cold, be certain to dress him properly and do not keep him out in the elements too long.

She is very affectionate and kind of glued to my hip. Wherever I go she comes to lay at my feet. She's not super playful all day long but definately has moments where she gets excited and wants to play. She rests frequently. She eats slowly and all day (a little less than a 1/4 of a cup three times a day). She's very friendly with other dogs, even the big ones. Great family addition!

I got her when I lost my 14 year old poodle. She has been a great comfort to me and my husband. She is the light of our lives.
