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.

Temperament

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.

Exercise

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.

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!!

Name: Maisy (formerly known as Avery)
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Client: Michele Nicholls
Loc: Greensburg, PA

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!

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.

Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Client: Lisa
Loc: Chicago

I purchased my puppy in July 2016. My father, daughter and I drove seven hours to pick her up and she was so worth it, she is the sweetest cutest puppy I have ever seen. We had recently lost our Pomeranian for 15 years and we couldn't asked for a better new family member then Bella. Permier pups continued to check on her during our whole travel back home, also a few weeks after our arrival. Bella is a very happy , energetic, and healthy pup, I would recommend anyone to go there and pick up their newest family member!!

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.

Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Client: Latosha Sweet
Loc: Greensboro NC

I purchased my Bentley from premier pup in July of 2016. I purposely waited to post a review to see how Bentley would progress with his health and development over the first year. He is the most healthy little boy and super smart. I 100% recommend Premier Pups. They were extremely helpful during the first few weeks of adjustment and I can honestly say, we gained a healthy and happy new member to our family. Thank you Premier Pups!

Name: Nugget, Scrappy and Woogie
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Client: Melissa
Loc: Syracuse, NY

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.

Name: Kali
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Client: Tamara and Jamie Freeman
Loc: Houston,TX

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!
