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 is Autumn (formally Amy, bought in 2014) and Izzie. Both of these pups are well mannered, healthy and love to snuggle- just what I need! I'm so impressed with the way Premier Pup followed up and provided the necessary Meds, food and clear directions I needed to transition both of theses puppies into my life. I liked them so much I bought two puppies!
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!
I am so happy that I went through Premier Pups to get me special fur baby, Penelope! She is a wonderful addition to my life. Very loving and also very playful! Thanks again, Premier Pups!! Couldn't have chosen a better place to get her and I will highly recommend this website to all of my friends and family!
Bear formally Rudy, is a teacup yorkie. Thank u so much. He is the best little family member we could have ever asked for. He is the cutest, sweetest little baby boy. He is so spoiled rotten. If I ever decide to add another little baby to the house, I will be returning to premier pups. It was a very easy process. I drove down and picked Bear up. Everyone there is so great and helpful. Thank u again. We love our little boosie bear.
My puppy is now 7 months I love her so much
We got Patches three years ago and he is honestly the best dog. We consider him as our son and he is spoiled rotten. We just recently had a baby girl and Patches is in love with her. He definitely completes our little family. Thank you Premier pups.
We absolutely love our Bella, formerly Goldie. She will turn 3 years old this January 19th, 2016. She is a perfect addition to our family and greets everyone with her bone when they come in the house. She loves to be outside and was quite amused playing in the snow for the first time. She loves the car and travels with us everywhere we go, from the cabin in WI to seeing Grandma and the other residents at the nursing home. She is a very big hit with the ladies at the home!!! She is great with the grandkids and makes sure she cleans up any snacks they might drop on the floor. We always say she can't handle her licker because her tongue is always liking someone or something. I can not thank Premier Pups enough for allowing me to buy my sweet Bella. She came to me at a very difficult time. I was recovering from a very complicated back surgery and she helped me heal and stayed by my side for companionship. Still to this day where ever I sit or lay down she is right by my side.
I just want to thank Premier Pups for three wonderful Yorkies, I got Onyx 5/16/15 Diamond & Trigger 3/16/17. The staff is wonderful and very knowledgeable, they are available 24hrs a day of any questions or concerns. If you want THE BEST of the breed I highly recommend Premier Pups! As a cancer survivor they have brought so much joy to my life, nothing else matters when I see there happy faces. Michael thanks again for everything.
I purchased Shai back in November 2018. The process was very quick and easy. I picked her up at the airport and she was nice and comfortable in her crate with a bed and a toy. Shai has a very big personality and brings joy to my life. I’m happy I mad the decision to go with Premier Pups. She is now 1 year old. She’s happy and healthy and loves her new home.
