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 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!

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!!!
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!
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.
Thank you so much!!! We got our puppy safely home she had alittle kennel cough that we treated but other than that she is an amazing , loving , energetic sweet girl! We love her and couldn't be happier!
I purchased my Teacup Yorkshire Terrier on the 10th of June. While I had a few rough days to begin with, Ryan was ALWAYS available on the phone and by video to chat with me to get me through those tough times when my Peyton was adjusting to her new environment. Since that time, she had adjusted well and is very energetic and is just a joy to the entire family. She goes everywhere with me. I take her to church, shopping and am getting ready to take her on our family vacation next month. It is very reassuring to know that you have people like Ryan who are there for you with any question you have at any time to help you along with the way! I would not hesitate to purchase another dog from Premier Pups. They are A-1 first class.
Squishy is the most smartest yorkie I have ever seen some how she always gets out from her pen she is a little escape master. I love her so much. We got her in only 2-3 days she is so cute and playful
Approximately two years ago, my family and I decided to buy a yorkie (Rascal, who we renamed Goliath). This year, we came to the conclusion that Goliath needed a partner to play with, so be bought Rebecca (who we’ve now named Cleo). Now, I’m very happy that we have two yorkies instead of one.
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.
