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 was our first time buying a dog, and premier pups was amazing! I called them at least 20 times with questions and they were happy to speak with me every time! They had the answers to all my questions. Zoro arrived in a carrier with all the necessities and instructions on how to care for him. He arrived at my home only 2 days after I purchased him! Zoro is very healthy and playful. He is transitioning great into our home. Thank you premier pups for such a wonderful and smooth process on our first puppy!
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!!
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.
I am very happy with my dog ??daughter ??. The service of the Premier Puppies is very good, I am very happy and satisfied.
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.
My puppy is now 7 months I love her so much
On August 19, 2018, we made the 3.5 hour drive to pick up our new precious baby. The experience was so easy and the staff was wonderful at helping us every step of the way. He is the sweetest little pup and such a blessing to our entire family.
My family & I adopted our Yorkie-Lorenzo, 5 years ago, and our Maltese-Gio, last March. They have brought so much joy into our lives (and becoming the best of buds.) Premier pups has always been excellent at reaching out periodically to check in on the boys. I didn't hesitate for a second to go through them again to adopt our second. Quick to respond, always available if you have any concerns, and has a very clean & welcoming facility. My pups have always been healthy and happy. I would gladly adopt a 3rd from premier pups-(if the hubs let's me) ;)
I chose Premierpups.come because they had great prices for Yorkies, and they were so nice. They flew my puppy out to me in Chicago, and answered all of my frantic phone calls as a first time pet owner. George is now almost 2 years old, and is super healthy. He hasn't had any health issues. He's the best dog, and I am so happy I heard about this site!
I purchased my Bentley from premier pup in July of 2016. I purposely waited to post a review to see how Bentley would progress with his health and development over the first year. He is the most healthy little boy and super smart. I 100% recommend Premier Pups. They were extremely helpful during the first few weeks of adjustment and I can honestly say, we gained a healthy and happy new member to our family. Thank you Premier Pups!
