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.

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!
Spartan (who's name was originally Rolando) has brought so much joy to our family. We bought him for our daughter Tricia and she never stops thanking us. We had an exceptional experience with premier pups and we will continue to refer our friends and family.
Here are photos of Lily and Maddy. They are 3 years old now. Absolutely adorable and sweet. We love them like crazy. Lily is smart and an amazing athlete. Maddy is sweet and simple. They have a wonderful relationship with each other and never, ever fight. Getting them was one of the best decisions ever!
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!
We adopted Maisy (Avery) one year ago today! She was our second adoption from Premier Pups. Her sister Mila, is pictured and is a Morkie. While the experience this time was a little different due to Covid 19, it was still professional and pain free. I truly appreciate the follow up after the pups were home. They were both tiny, and we were nervous as first and then second time dog owners. Our feeding questions were answered and both pups are now full grown and healthy! They love to snuggle and play! 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.
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.
Approximately two years ago, my family and I decided to buy a yorkie (Rascal, who we renamed Goliath). This year, we came to the conclusion that Goliath needed a partner to play with, so be bought Rebecca (who we’ve now named Cleo). Now, I’m very happy that we have two yorkies instead of one.
I am so pleased with the services from premier pup I live my new baby I always wanted a teacup yorkie the price was right he came home and settled right in with no Oelwein I highly recommend there services it was quick and surrogate to the point.....thank you for our new family member
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.
