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.

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.

We purchased Timmy from Premier Pups 2/25/17. He has brought so much joy and laughter to our family. We could not be happier with Timmy and with our experience with Premier Pups. Chase was our adoption specialist and was such a nice, informative young man. We highly recommend Premier Pups.
Just want to say thank you so much Premier Pups. I picked up Mia which was named Rebecca on our way home from a family wedding on August 26. Being my first dog, there has been a lot of explaining things to me. She is everything I could ask for. Our vet informed me that she is very healthy. I informed him that it took a lot of research before deciding where to get my puppy from. I have to say, I made a very wise decision. I have not seen or heard of another place that takes as good of care of their puppies as you all do. I truly appreciate the caring and nurturing that goes into each pup. It makes it that much more rewarding for every individual that purchases a pup from you. I have bragged to all my friends on how I would never buy a puppy from another place and have recommended you to many people. Best wishes to all of you now and in the future.

It is full of love & playfulness, sometimes too much… ha-ha. Sophie just turned 6 months and Lia is now 4.5 months old. We made a great choice getting our puppies from Premier Pups. Healthy & growing fast, well 5 LBS now, close to their full adult size. They wish everyone a Merry Christmas 2016

He's the best dog, and I am so happy I heard about this site!
