A tiny cross between the Papillon and the Yorkshire Terrier, the Yorkillon is known for its sound personality and devotion to the owner. It has a small, slightly rounded head with a short muzzle that tapers to the nose, medium-sized, round eyes, and large ears that are either erect or dropped. Its ears, chest, back, and tail have an extra frill of hair.

The Yorkillons are described as cheerful and adventurous dogs that are likely to move about nimbly. Although they have plenty of energy to romp around, they can remain calm and happy when sitting or sleeping on their owner’s lap.
These busy and curious pets come in a small and sturdy package, taking seriously their duties as the guardian of the family. Because of their big-dog attitude and super watchdog abilities, the Yorkillons can alert their owners to anything unusual or suspicious in their environment.
Even though the Yorkie/Papillon mix can be sociable, they are initially distrustful of unknown people. They can be trained to get along with strangers and pets, but strict supervision is needed since rambunctious cats or dogs may injure them with their claws.
The Yorkie Pap is easy to train because of its smart and obedient nature.
Your Yorkillon’s diet should consist of calorie-dense foods; also provide a fair amount of dry dog food, preferably 1/4-1/2 cups a day.
