We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Yorkie Russell is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

The Yorkie Russell usually has a long coat which is silky like the Yorkshire Terrier. It will need bathing approximately once every month in a mild dog shampoo to prevent dry skin. They will need brushing daily to prevent matting. Nails should be clipped every 2-3 months and their teeth cleaned regularly as they are prone to tooth decay like the Yorkshire Terrier. They are hardy little dogs who love to run but may be prone to joint problems.
The Yorkie Russell could live in a house or an apartment but need a garden to run around in. They are good with children and are very affectionate. They will let you know when they get upset and go to their bed to escape the attention.
