Teemo is the only furry Yordle in the game. And as we don't know anything about Yordle genetics, his appearance doesn't seem so far-fetched.

Latter they made a second female yordle named poppy. It is established the only other female yordle (yes yordle, because merglings being a race was retconned) looked different at this point when you look at trist and then teemo or heimer I suppose they just made the non furry purple mergling look a gender difference among yordles.

It isn't that strange of a gender difference really. less hair and different pigmentation. It's nothing as drastic and an angler fish.
Last I remember the explanation was Yordies was a gropu term covering many different sorts of creatures living together for a common goal. This group is composed of cute looking, short... stubby... things.

Teemo and Kennen share a related race(possibly), where as Heimer and Corki lack much in common. Poppy and Trist are alike, but nothing close to Heimer/Kennen/Teemo/Corki. And yes, Corki is a Yordie(Who isn't all furry).

And... who knows WTF Veigar is.

No, it's a race. All of those champions, Veigar included, are defined as Yordles in their respective lore.

They have distinct facial and skin color differences (and one also happens to be furry), but so do humans.

Teemo doesent have fur. I think Yordles are a form of human.

Meglings are a crack commando unit in Bandle City. They are not a race of beings. The mention of Meglings as a race back in the day was, and continues to be, a typo.

As for the male/female thing, makes have the "peacock complex"; the male yordle is responsible for attracting the female of the species, hence why the males have a wider variety of skin/fur types. This is why Teemo gets all the ladies OH YEAH~
