The Yorkshire Terrier also known to many as the Yorkie, said to have Scottish ancestry, was brought to England by breeders in the 19th century. It was originally bred and used to catch mice in clothing mills. Due to its energetic and brave temperament, it excelled at this task. Today, the Yorkie is one of the most popular and sought-after dog breeds in the United States. Its long silky coat which is usually blue and tan in color gives this puppy a unique physical appearance. These charming little dogs crave attention and are very affectionate towards humans; thus, making them the perfect addition to your family.
Appearance and Grooming
This toy sized terrier has a long, silky and soft blue and tan coat that is parted on the face and from the base of the skull to the end of the tail and hangs evenly and quite straight down each side of body. The body is neat, compact and well proportioned. An interesting fact is that their coats become lighter in color as they age. Though, shedding is minimal, their long hair requires daily brushing in effort to prevent tangles and knots. Regular grooming every for 6 to 8 weeks is also very important to keep a healthy coat and clipped nails.
This self-assured, intelligent breed is a combination of charming looks and adventurous terrier spirit. This breed can certainly show a wide range of personalities from cuddly and perky and wanting nothing more than to adoringly follow in their families everywhere, to an outgoing and sometimes mischievous temperament. Early socialization and training will make for a well-rounded addition to your family. But be careful not to spoil them to much as they can encourage them to form bad behaviors.
Family and Companionship
These elegant dogs are very affectionate towards their owners and families as one would expect from a companion dog, but true to their terrier heritage, they're sometimes suspicious of strangers, and will bark at strange sounds and intruders. They require lots of attention and time with their family. It is best not to leave them for long hours as they will become quite anxious and yappy. Because of their small size they will do best with older children unless supervised during play time with younger children.
Daily exercise will help your Yorkie release pent-up energy, maintain muscles, keep the heart healthy, keeps the metabolism working efficiently and intense that they are panting. A moderate walk twice a day is perfect. These dogs like routine, so ideally one in the morning and one in the evening.
Training and Socialization
These puppies respond best to repetition, praise and plenty of positive reinforcement. They are very in tune with the trainer and the challenges of training as they are driven by the mental stimulation. Early socialization is equally important as it offers the opportunity to become accustomed to people, other dogs and traffic. It also provides this curious pup with mental stimulation by way of sight, scent, sound, which aids in the training process.

This is Autumn (formally Amy, bought in 2014) and Izzie. Both of these pups are well mannered, healthy and love to snuggle- just what I need! I'm so impressed with the way Premier Pup followed up and provided the necessary Meds, food and clear directions I needed to transition both of theses puppies into my life. I liked them so much I bought two puppies!
I purchased my puppy in July 2016. My father, daughter and I drove seven hours to pick her up and she was so worth it, she is the sweetest cutest puppy I have ever seen. We had recently lost our Pomeranian for 15 years and we couldn't asked for a better new family member then Bella. Permier pups continued to check on her during our whole travel back home, also a few weeks after our arrival. Bella is a very happy , energetic, and healthy pup, I would recommend anyone to go there and pick up their newest family member!!
We purchased Kali from premier pups late March and it was one of them best decisions we could've made. She's our little spoiled baby. Premier was there every step of the way from helping us decide which dog we truly wanted to making sure she arrived safely to us. They check on her very often and we appreciate that. We will be purchasing from them again soon!
We had such a great experience with Premier pups. We received her on December 4, she was an early Christmas gift for our children. My children cried when we returned from the airport with her. She fitted right in with the entire family. A big Thank You to Premier pups for the step by step instructions on caring for our new baby and answering the ton of question that I have.
I received my little puppy for a b-day present from my boss. At first she didn’t transition, our vet said she was a very sick puppy she was going to die. That was so far from the truth Mike from premier puppy told me what to do, he went out of his way to help me from Dailey texts and phone calls he knew what to do. If it wouldn’t have been for him I would have listened to the vet and she would have died. He said trust me, and I did. If I ever have any questions he answers me. I thank God for Premiere puppy every day. My puppy is very Healthy. Thank you premier puppy??
Since receiving our Yorkie, on August 10,2018, the House has been full of love and happiness. He arrived with a crate, familiar toys, food and medications. He was extremely clean and had a good temperament. He adjusted easily to the home and has become a part of the family immediately! The breeder would email daily and call to check on our puppy for the first 2 weeks and offered assistance as needed. Premier pups is an excellent, reputable breeder with beautiful puppies. Our puppy is a handsome little guy and so well behaved! We love our purchase and are so thankful to have found premier pups!
Last August we bought our first puppy ever together as a family, Peanut ( Teacup Yorkie) and then we came back 8 months later and we bought our littlest one Buddy( Micro Teacup Yorkie) yesterday. I am so so happy when i tell you honestly how very Pleased i am with them. They are the REAL thing. In the very beginning when we were purchasing Peanut, we were so nervous not only for her size but also the responsibility that comes with it, and lets not talk about all of the scams out there. When i tell you that Premiere Pups from Ohio is the real thing, I mean it. Both puppies came to me Happy and Healthy, Both puppies eat so well and are so playful. All they want to do is eat, play, and then sleep due to how active they are. The staff are so friendly and professional and answered all of our questions anytime we needed them to. Please believe me when i say that they are the real thing and really do care about their puppies health and happiness. My family is so so happy and thankful to all of the staff that were a part of this, because i know how much these two puppies mean to our lives, especially to my two kids and I will NEVER purchase from anyone but them and i really hope that you will do the same.
