From a working-class “ratter” to recognition as one of the world’s most prestigious pure breeds, the Yorkshire Terrier is an icon of breed shows and a favorite the world over.
Seven pounds of silky floor-length hair, the Yorkshire Terrier’s elegant disposition would not be out of place on the lap of a palace-dwelling royal.
Don’t be fooled. The “Yorkie” maybe a toy-size terrier, but the little canine possesses a tenacious, often feisty temperament that quickly elevates the bossy pooch to the top of the familial hierarchy.
Hypoallergenic, compact and delightfully intelligent, Yorkies are the perfect city-dwelling companion. In fact, Yorkies are so well-suited to apartment living that they are frequently recognized as the most popular dog breed in cities across the U.S.
Adult Yorkies are small, often referred to as “toy-sized.” Yorkie puppies, on the other hand, are the epitome of the phrase “miniature” dog.
Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, Yorkshire Terrier puppies have been known to warm even the coldest of hearts.
Yorkies are comically oblivious to their size, especially Yorkie puppies who are known to develop a stubborn demeanor when training. However, like all puppies, there is no behavioral problem that cannot be solved with regular obedience training.
