Yorkshire Terrier Overview
Yorkshire Terriers are known for both
their small size and big personalities. They are a toy breed, and as
adults, should not go over 7 pounds.
Don't let their small size fool
you...When it comes to protecting their territory, they make great watch
dogs with their "full-sized" attitude. They will bark when someone or
something is around.
Yorkie dogs are very intelligent
with an amazing hunting capability. They are known for being able to
figure things out.
Yorkies are extremely loving and loyal,
and will bond quickly to people. They love to be part of the family. Since
families have small children, it's important to point out that Yorkies
tend to be nervous around small children due to the fact that they want to
constantly pick them up. It is important to teach small children how to
hold them properly.
Because Yorksire Terriers love praise and
attention, they are relatively easy to train. Training a Yorkie requires
consistency however as their intellect permits them to figure out ways
around that of which they have been taught.
Yorkie dogs are very athletic, and will
keep themselves well exercised even in a small living environment.
Walking, running, and playing are favorite activities for them.
Yorkies live for a long time as they
are a healthy breed. They can live 15 or more years. To insure a long
life, it is important that they eat a well

many other dogs. Because of this, they shed a whole lot less. This makes
them more suitable as pets for people who suffer from allergies. Weekly
bathing and brushing is all that is required to keep your
little friend looking tip top.
