It may seem very odd when you think that there are so many cross breeds popping up, both intentionally and unintentionally, around the world each day, and there's nothing really special about a Yorkie Bichon breed cropping up over time. But this fact has a completely different meaning in the eyes of potential dog owners.

If you are planning to get a Yorkie Bichon as a pet but are not really sure whether you really need a dog like this, and more importantly unsure what the puppy would become when it has all grown up, then there's only one thing to say that you are not the only one having this doubt. It is a well known fact that no one can really predict what a mixed breed dog would grow up to be like and this is surely true for all mixed 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.

This is one of the reasons why it is tricky to breed a mix breed dog. As no one dog breeder has the entire lineage of a dog going back hundreds of years, it can be quite difficult to find out whether or not the ancestors of the parents themselves cross bred at some point in the past. The problem is that in some cases genetic defects may hide themselves for a few generations, and might come back to affect the dog at the point when the dog breeders are about to cross breed the dogs.

The results of this cross breeding can either a dog that is very cute and adorable or a one that is a hodgepodge of the two participating breeds. However this kind of scenario is very rare in cross breeding programs, and in case you require a good Yorkie Bichon mix then you would most likely be able to get it without any kinds of problems.

Leave alone the features, what would be the characteristics of such as dog? Well, this is something that is not very easy to predict beforehand and the only way to find out for most of the owners would be to wait until their puppy grows into an adult mature Yorkie Bichon dog and only then one can determine whether it is predominantly a Yorkie mix dog or a Bichon mix dog. Whatever be the case, one thing is sure that you would get a warm, loving and adorable dog who is loyal to you and your family, and what can one really as for if all this is provided to him?
