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.

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.
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!
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!
We had been searching for Yorkie for some time and then stumbled upon Premier Pets. I fell in love with Twinkle's face. She reminded me so much of my beloved Sadie who had passed away months before. Our other Yorkie Harley had been very lonely. I was a little leery about having her shipped to NJ, but Premier Pets put my mind at ease and on April 10th we met our new furry baby at the airport. She was beautiful! And in perfect health! She was very tiny, but as you can see she's growing fast. She loves her big sister and her big sister loves her! Thank you Premier Pets for making this so easy and thank you for all the follow up calls after she arrived. We are in love with this sweet little girl!
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!
I bought my Micro Yorkie in June 2016. He is 3 years old now. It's so hard to find a true micro puppy. But my sweet little Max is a true Micro. He weighs 3.1 pounds. He is the love of my life. Premier Pups is the best place ever. Their puppies are healthy and happy. I wouldn't buy a puppy anywhere else. Max says hi Premier Pups!!
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!
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.
We picked up Chloe almost 2 weeks ago. She had her first vet appointment today and they said she is very healthy. She is the cutest tiniest puppy with the sweetest personality. The people at Premiere Pups have been great about calling to check on our girl and answering any questions we have. I would definitely recommend them and I have. We love our Chloe. She is perfect for our family.
