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.

I chose Premierpups.come because they had great prices for Yorkies, and they were so nice. They flew my puppy out to me in Chicago, and answered all of my frantic phone calls as a first time pet owner. George is now almost 2 years old, and is super healthy. He hasn't had any health issues. He's the best dog, and I am so happy I heard about this site!
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.
Adopted both Sadie (49108 Sophie) & Lia (50241 Bella) from Premier Pups. They are not from the same litter but are “Best Friends Forever”!! Our house is no longer boring! It is full of love & playfulness, sometimes too much… ha-ha. Sophie just turned 6 months and Lia is now 4.5 months old. We made a great choice getting our puppies from Premier Pups. Healthy & growing fast, well 5 LBS now, close to their full adult size. They wish everyone a Merry Christmas 2016
We bought bear back in February of 2018. He was the best decision we’ve ever made. He is so smart and nutty (especially after his bath). He is like a little kid because he always looks in our bags for a new toy when we get back from the store. He gets so excited for a new toy. He will get on the back of the couch with a toy in his mouth to show us when we come in the door. He does have anxiety and doesn’t like car rides at all which I hate because I wanted a dog I could take with me everyplace I went but I do t love him any less. I wouldn’t trade him for the world. Now I have a new grandson in the house (2mths old) and he has adapted to having him there and loves giving him nose and ear kisses. I highly recommend this place for your beloved family member. Bear was and is completely healthy and lovable. If I ever want another I will be coming back here for sure.
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.
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 had such a great experience with Premier pups. We received her on December 4, she was an early Christmas gift for our children. My children cried when we returned from the airport with her. She fitted right in with the entire family. A big Thank You to Premier pups for the step by step instructions on caring for our new baby and answering the ton of question that I have.
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!
Thank you for the sweetest little addition to my family! He is so lovable and playful. I'm very impressed with the whole experience with Permier Pets and how helpful they have been with the transition of my little bundle of joy! Trish
