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.
Alert, Courageous, Energetic, Loyal, Intelligent, Independent and Playful

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,
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 absolutely love Bella
