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.

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,
I have been monitoring Premier Pups site for a long time before finally making a pup purchase. I was very skeptical about making the online purchase and not being able to see the actual pup in person. Well, the transaction was very easy after watching the Informational videos. The pick up was very easy and professionally done. The puppy was actually the exact pup that I purchased. Chanel has been with us a week now, healthy as can be. Premier Pup Associates communicated daily, emailed weekly expectations, and made sure everything was covered to assist us with the transition. I’m very grateful and happy that I took this chance. Thank you Premier Pups!!!
I got Nugget Chipperman (formerly Trigger) 3 years ago as a companion to my older Yorkie, Simba, but then decided he eventually needed a younger brother as Simba was getting a little older. So, then came Scrappy Doodles (formerly Jenkins), who is now just under 2-years-old, and since I was on a roll with having the youngsters, I decided “why not have 2 puppies since I haven’t slept in 6 months as it is?!” In came Woogie Bandit, and they are the closest pack of brothers I could ever hope for! I have no regrets at all getting any of my three boys from Premier Pups, and I’m sure in the future....far future now, as I am just starting to sleep again after Woogie just turned 1 in October....they’ll get another brother one day.
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!
Meet Milo! He's happy, he's healthy and most importantly he is LOVED! Let me tell you if you're apprehensive at the thought of "ordering" a pup online or purchasing a dog that has been bred, cast all your worries aside! I previously purchased a Maltese from Premier Pups in 2010 and had a wonderful experience. He is mild mannered, cuddly and a great family dog. Several years later we wanted to purchase puppies again but for some reason opted to purchase two locally in NJ. After having two very bad experiences (both sick puppies that needed to be returned) I resorted back to Premier Pups for the simple fact that no one compares. This is the only place I recommend for a perfect dog and the only place I'll stick with from now on. Milo and Dolce were both as pictured but most importantly HEALTHY. Both dogs (years apart) never got sick and never had to take to the Vet for health issues other than routine check ups. Dolce is now 7 years old and happy as can be and Milo is right there with him. It would be a mistake to go anywhere else.
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) ;)
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!
After begging and waiting ten years for my mom to let me get a puppy, she finally caved. I’m completely convinced I was meant to wait these ten years specifically so Hank would come into my life. He was supposed to be my mom and dad’s dog, but he immediately bonded and took a liking to me. He is such a loving and playful pup who loves playing in his kiddie pool outside, along with chasing the hose and squirrels in our backyard. He’s my little shadow and I’m so happy I was referred to Premier Pups to find him!
Thank you for a beautiful and smart pup! FrannyLu has brought much joy into our home and to our family and friends. Everyone wants a kiss from FrannyLu!
