The Silky-Poo, also called the Poolky, is a confident and energetic breed. They are excellent lapdogs who adore their human beings and they tend to follow them around everywhere. These cute, cuddly pooches are great for single people and for growing families who want to have an affectionate companion. Poolky dogs are alert and can be good watchdogs too. They may have long or short, silky straight or curly furs in solid or a combination of black, white, cream, gray, apricot, and blue. Their coats are typically minimal-shedding.
Origin of the Silky-Poo
The Silky-Poo is the hybrid dog resulting from crossing a purebred Australian Silky Terrier and a purebred Poodle. The Australian Silky Terrier looks very similar to its Australian and Yorkshire Terrier relatives. Silky Terriers were developed during the early 20th century while the well-known Poodle has been around for around 400 years. Silky-Poos are being bred for years as a reliable companion.
