Poochy Pups are younger versions of the character Poochy in Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World. They follow Yoshi around the stage in Mellow Mode and help the player find secrets. When a secret is nearby, one will rush to it and start barking and jumping, waiting for the player to either find the secret or walk away (in which case the Poochy Pup will return to Yoshi). Poochy Pups can also be thrown like Yarn Balls; after being thrown, they come back to Yoshi. Up to three Poochy Pups follow Yoshi at once.
The three Poochy Pups return in Yoshi's Crafted World, where they are hidden throughout the flip side of each level. Yoshi is required to find all three and bring them to the goal. A Poochy Pup can be heard barking if it is nearby; once a Poochy Pup is collected, it follows Yoshi and can be thrown like a Yoshi Egg and reused as in Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World. Poochy Pups are also hidden throughout the game's official website, each of which rewards the player with 50 Platinum Points for My Nintendo when found.
Their behavior may be a reference to the behavior of the smaller Poochy from Yoshi's Story.
