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

My puppy is now 7 months I love her so much
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!!!
We got Jermey just this Friday, we love him so much!! It seems that he has adapted well to the city noises, as he sleeps through the honking of cars. He’s super playful and loving! Thank you Premier Pups!!
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!
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.
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 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.
Thank you so much Premier Pup for such a great puppy. We picked him up from the Airport today and on our way home he had a spit up but the instructions in the email was very detailed on what needed to be done. When we made it home..he adjusted very well and he is such a happy Yorkie! Thanks so much!!!!!!
Wishing our Axel(Snickers) a Happy 1st Birthday
