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.

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!

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.

Name: Alexander Graham Bell
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Client: Kim
Loc: Michigan

I adopted Alexander Graham Bell my prescious Teacup Yorkie from PremierPups.com almost fourteen months ago when he was exactly eight weeks old and 1 lb 11oz. The staff and their affiliates were awesome during the adoption process and the following five weeks afterwards. Alexander was guaranteed to stay at 3.5lbs as an adult. To this day he is 3.57 lbs (he LOVES ground turkey) ?? This company definitely honors their guarantee and I would NEVER adopt from anywhere else. There are so many wonderful things to say... I'm just blessed to have purchased from Premier Pups, unfortunately there were so many scammers trying to sell doggies it is truly disheartening. Alex is the ??of our lives. Thank, @Kimoreae

Name: Bella
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Client: Tasha Ramos
Loc: Chicago

I have purchased two dogs from Premier Pups, Bentley who is three years old Bella who just turned one. Both transactions were very smooth. I had Bentley shipped to me and walked right up and picked him up once he arrived at the airport. Bella we picked up. Bella was the puppy of the owners dog NuNu and I cant say how HAPPY I am to have her, she has an awesome personality and runs the show at home. Mike was very accommodating in the pick up process. We love both of our dogs very much and spoil them all the time. I can't imagine my life without either of them. If your thinking about buying a dog from Premier Pups, I would highly recommend them. I have referred friends who have purchased dogs thru Premier Pups and they were amazed at how smooth the process was.

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!

Client: Allison and Zachary Hostetler

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!

This was our first time buying a dog, and premier pups was amazing! I called them at least 20 times with questions and they were happy to speak with me every time! They had the answers to all my questions. Zoro arrived in a carrier with all the necessities and instructions on how to care for him. He arrived at my home only 2 days after I purchased him! Zoro is very healthy and playful. He is transitioning great into our home. Thank you premier pups for such a wonderful and smooth process on our first puppy!
