A brief presentation of the Yorkillon

Beauty, grace and lots of cuteness, the Yorkillon is a dog you'll want to keep by your side for a long time. He's got style, class and a lot of sass, but you'll let him because of his pretty face. The Yorkillon is a dog that loves people, so he'll always be by your side to keep you company. Known as the Miniature Spaniel, this little pocket of personality will keep you and your children laughing, wondering and loving for years to come.

History of the Yorkillon

The history of the Yorkillon is largely unknown; however, much can be determined from its parent dogs: the Yorkshire Terrier and the Papillon. Given the popularity of its lineage, the Yorkillon is as cute as it is intelligent. Although it can sometimes be a little pretentious, its pleasant attitude and warm, friendly nature make it perfectly suited to cuddling and playful frolicking.
        

A little of the Yorkshire Terrier

        
The Yorkshire Terrier, like the Papillon, was also designed to catch small game. Again, this particular breed has become much better known as a family dog due to the significant reduction in its size over time. The Yorkshire is renowned for being spirited, affectionate and a little feisty, but its cute face and expressive attitude make it a charming center of attention. Over the years, the Yorkshire Terrier has become a dog well suited to companionship and comfort. Its modern small size makes it easy to carry, and it thrives in small spaces. No wonder they've become America's most popular toy breed.

A little of the Continental Toy Spaniel

Descended from the Spaniels, the origins of the Papillon Continental Toy Spaniel breed date back to the 1500s. Dogs resembling the Papillon appeared in the paintings of famous artists such as Rembrandt and Watteau. They were named for their large, pointed ears, fringed with flowing hair. Interestingly, not all puppies in a litter have these pointed ears; puppies with floppy ears are called Phalenes. The Continental Toy Spaniel was very popular at the court of Louis XIV, and it is even said that Marie-Antoinette took her precious dog with her to the guillotine. The Continental Toy Spaniel is the ultimate companion dog, having been bred as such for hundreds of years. They were first recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1915.

Appearance of the Yorkillon

This little dog has the spirit and attitude of a champion, as well as the silky coat and delicate paws to match. Its long hair can come in a variety of colors, from black to fawn to sable, so it's not uncommon to have a litter containing a diversity of coat colors and patterns. The Yorkillon's small head is almost identical to that of the Yorkshire Terrier, although the hair around its face is slightly longer. His ears point straight up when he stands at attention, and his small dark eyes are hidden by a pair of rather broad eyebrows. His tail can be straight or slightly curled at the tip, which only adds to the charm of this already adorable little dog.

Temperament of the Yorkillon

No dog proves to be man's best friend like the Yorkillon, indeed, it is man's best friend and most fashionable companion. The Yorkillon is famous for its beauty as well as its people skills. He's always loyal to his humans, whether you're a single person or a family with children. Its kindness also extends to other pets. Charismatic and sociable, she gets along with everyone. Young or old, this cheerful little dog will love spending time with you. He's very demanding when it comes to attention, so if you don't have a lot of time to devote to him, the Yorkillon may not be the best choice for you. He can be quite stubborn, but he's easy to train thanks to his love of praise and desire to please you. Try not to raise your voice or scold him, as this can make him very nervous; instead, try to reward him for good behavior.

Needs and activities of the Yorkillon

Yorkillons can be playful and energetic or calm and relaxed, depending on their mood. Because of its versatile nature, it's perfect for any environment. Whether it's an apartment, condo or house, the Yorkillon will thrive as long as it's with you. As an indoor dog, it should never be left outside for too long, especially in extremely hot or cold weather. If the weather is severe, only let your pretty pooch go outside under strict supervision, and make sure he always has access to plenty of water to stay hydrated, and a warm place to lie down when he comes indoors. He'll love a good walk to meet and greet the neighbors - he'll never turn down the opportunity.

Maintenance of the Yorkillon

The Yorkillon can be pretty demanding when it comes to your attention, but when it comes to caring for him, he's not all that high-maintenance. He's not hypoallergenic and, due to seasonal moulting, will need brushing at least once a day to keep his long coat healthy, shiny and tangle-free. A pin brush is all you'll need to keep his fur smooth and pretty. Bathe and shampoo your Yorkie once a month, or as needed, but remember that over-washing your dog can remove essential oils and leave his skin dry and irritated. Check your Yorkie's ears at least once a week to make sure they're not infected or overgrown. Due to the length and abundance of his fur, it's common for yeast to accumulate in the ear canal, causing irritation and infection. If you notice any unusual redness, or if your dog scratches his head or ears profusely, consult a vet immediately.
