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 just want to thank Premier Pups for three wonderful Yorkies, I got Onyx 5/16/15 Diamond & Trigger 3/16/17. The staff is wonderful and very knowledgeable, they are available 24hrs a day of any questions or concerns. If you want THE BEST of the breed I highly recommend Premier Pups! As a cancer survivor they have brought so much joy to my life, nothing else matters when I see there happy faces. Michael thanks again for everything.
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.
Meet Milo! He's happy, he's healthy and most importantly he is LOVED! Let me tell you if you're apprehensive at the thought of "ordering" a pup online or purchasing a dog that has been bred, cast all your worries aside! I previously purchased a Maltese from Premier Pups in 2010 and had a wonderful experience. He is mild mannered, cuddly and a great family dog. Several years later we wanted to purchase puppies again but for some reason opted to purchase two locally in NJ. After having two very bad experiences (both sick puppies that needed to be returned) I resorted back to Premier Pups for the simple fact that no one compares. This is the only place I recommend for a perfect dog and the only place I'll stick with from now on. Milo and Dolce were both as pictured but most importantly HEALTHY. Both dogs (years apart) never got sick and never had to take to the Vet for health issues other than routine check ups. Dolce is now 7 years old and happy as can be and Milo is right there with him. It would be a mistake to go anywhere else.

Belle has been absolutely wonderful. 2 years later and we are still so happy. Premier pups staff was just amazing. Belle came to us on an airplane. She looked very well taken care and was in a very nice crate with toys a blanket and supplies. . I couldn’t imagine purchasing another pet from anyone else! 2 years later and we are still thrilled! Thx premier pups!!!
I got Opie (originially Rascal) from Premier pups and I could not be happier. Not only is he full of energy, but I cannot imagine my life without him now. I have recommended s few friends and family, and have also considered purchasing another furever friend for Opie. The facility is so clean, you would never even know there were puppies there. The staff helped with any and all questions that I had. Thanks guys for my fury baby he is my world.
Max Chewbacca (Beckem) is almost two years old, and right at 5 pounds. Not quite a micro teacup but definitely a lap dog. He enjoy chasing and playing with Rosie the a two year old Chihuahua, just sitting with us, and hates to be left behind,
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!!
After searching locally and not being able to find a Yorkie puppy that was what we wanted, we decided to look online. We ordered a Yorkie puppy from Premier Pups. She was just what we were expecting from the online description and is such a joy. We named her Bella. She has a great temperament and is the size we were looking for. It was very refreshing to find her weight and birthdate posted online, since we had found that most local breeders were offended to be asked to weigh their puppies (since it exposes their scam of selling larger dogs for teacup prices). We weighed bella when she arrived and were so relieved to find that her weight was right in line with what was posted on Premier Pups website. We are very satisfied with our purchase and recommend buying from Premier Pups.
