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.

We had not had a puppy search in 17 years. We were amazed at how difficult it was to locate reliable information on reliable breeders or breeder representative services. I work in law enforcement, so it was also shocking to see how many low-ball internet scam sites exist these days, ready to rob you. My family cannot say enough good things about Premier Pups. They provide precisely what they promise, and more in terms of integrity and peace of mind. I am unaware of any other midwestern breeder representative that makes everything so easy, all in one site. We were not only able to pay a very fair price for our Teacup Yorkie; we were able to in several clicks secure pickup of everything we could need to make our and the puppy's transition super smooth, from play pens to medicines to a great Puppeepoo Palace pad training kennel. The Doctor Pup membership for only $3.95 per month has already proved invaluable to us as a resource for the best updated, simple to understand, veterinary tips and advice for puppies. Thank you, Premier Pups, and well done on your beautiful and immaculate facility! You know upon arrival that you are dealing with real pet professionals who care. Your prompt and courteous response to our needs and questions has been impressive and MOST appreciated! We couldn't be happier to have found you. Tony Bialowas and family. Strongsville, Ohio
Me and my girlfriend got mia on June 20 2018. It was the best decision we ever made. Mia is healthy, playful and shows a lot of affection. She is our siberian Husky best friend. Premierpups have an excellent customer service and provide all information needed before and after the puppy arrive. 100% recommended :)
We bought bear back in February of 2018. He was the best decision we’ve ever made. He is so smart and nutty (especially after his bath). He is like a little kid because he always looks in our bags for a new toy when we get back from the store. He gets so excited for a new toy. He will get on the back of the couch with a toy in his mouth to show us when we come in the door. He does have anxiety and doesn’t like car rides at all which I hate because I wanted a dog I could take with me everyplace I went but I do t love him any less. I wouldn’t trade him for the world. Now I have a new grandson in the house (2mths old) and he has adapted to having him there and loves giving him nose and ear kisses. I highly recommend this place for your beloved family member. Bear was and is completely healthy and lovable. If I ever want another I will be coming back here for sure.
We picked up Chloe almost 2 weeks ago. She had her first vet appointment today and they said she is very healthy. She is the cutest tiniest puppy with the sweetest personality. The people at Premiere Pups have been great about calling to check on our girl and answering any questions we have. I would definitely recommend them and I have. We love our Chloe. She is perfect for our family.
I have purchased two dogs from Premier Pups, Bentley who is three years old Bella who just turned one. Both transactions were very smooth. I had Bentley shipped to me and walked right up and picked him up once he arrived at the airport. Bella we picked up. Bella was the puppy of the owners dog NuNu and I cant say how HAPPY I am to have her, she has an awesome personality and runs the show at home. Mike was very accommodating in the pick up process. We love both of our dogs very much and spoil them all the time. I can't imagine my life without either of them. If your thinking about buying a dog from Premier Pups, I would highly recommend them. I have referred friends who have purchased dogs thru Premier Pups and they were amazed at how smooth the process was.

Luke and Leia, Yorkies, have adjusted well to their new home and we love them so much! They love to play, particularly fetch and chasing each other around, and they love to snuggle when they take naps! Luke is very adventurous and Leia is a little more timid, but when it comes to who is boss, Leia isn't afraid to put Luke in his place. They are such a joy and we are so happy they are part of our family!
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.
