Silkypoo Saturday


A Silky Poo aka Poolky is a mixed (some call designer) breed comprised of a Silky Terrier and French Poodle. The Silky Terrier was created in the late 1800s by crossing the Yorkie with an Australian Terrier — Poodles originated in Germany, but developed into a distinct breed in France.
