Sweet little Fourche Terriers – part Westie, part Yorkie – possess the high cuteness level of both parents. We can definitely say the same for the sassy Yorkshire Aussie (Yorkie and Australian Shepherd mix) and the pudgy monkey-looking Affenshire (Affenpinscher and Yorkie). They’re just some of the finest Yorkie mixes out there.
Prepare for some cuteness overload as we explore these 29 Yorkie mixes you would want in your home today!

28. Yorkshire Aussie: Yorkie + Australian Shepherd Dog
Think of Yorkshire Aussies as tiny versions of the Australian Shepherd dog. They have the same long muzzles and erect ears with a smaller body. Their coat colors are similar to that of an Aussie, yet the length is longer as a Yorkie’s fur.
Yorkshire Aussies enjoy playtime. They like to have fun and would rather take things lightly. These mellow and light-hearted creatures are a delight to all owners.
27. Scorkie: Scottish Terrier + Yorkie
Another fun mix of two Terrier breeds, the Scorkie is a lot like both parents. They sport the same short legs and oval-shaped bodies of a Scottish Terrier combined with those erect, fluffy ears of a Yorkie. And yes, they are tiny and barely a ruler tall!

24. Griffonshire: Brussels Griffon + Yorkie
Flashing that signature underbite of a Brussels Griffon and the silky coat of a Yorkie, the Griffonshire is not your average Yorkie mix. They are small and lightweight at only 10 lbs or under.

15. Yorkie Pom: Yorkie + Pomeranian
The Yorkie Pom, or simply Yorkipom, is a tiny little toy dog that is under 10 inches in height. This is not surprising as the Pom and Yorkie breeds are also just as small. They are also quite fluffy, and mind you, this mixed breed shed a lot.
As with most toy dogs, the Yorkie Pom is not suitable for very active children. These dogs need to be handled carefully and gently; otherwise they may suffer injuries because of their delicate bodies.
