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.

Sammi is now 2, we and everyone loves her. The best little girl. She has been just wonderful. Thank you Premier Pups for our Sammi!
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 so much!!! We got our puppy safely home she had alittle kennel cough that we treated but other than that she is an amazing , loving , energetic sweet girl! We love her and couldn't be happier!
She is now 51 weeks old now. We got her at 9 weeks. Love her to death. She is perfect, spoiled, and a big part of our lives. Thank you Premier Pups for this perfect little girl.
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
My family & I adopted our Yorkie-Lorenzo, 5 years ago, and our Maltese-Gio, last March. They have brought so much joy into our lives (and becoming the best of buds.) Premier pups has always been excellent at reaching out periodically to check in on the boys. I didn't hesitate for a second to go through them again to adopt our second. Quick to respond, always available if you have any concerns, and has a very clean & welcoming facility. My pups have always been healthy and happy. I would gladly adopt a 3rd from premier pups-(if the hubs let's me) ;)
I loved my puppy, she is happy, playfully, and she is so smart. She arrived security and calm, they provide me all instructions and help me that I needed , they called me for to know if she is good, I loved they care. Thanks premier pups I am so happy with my little baby.
I purchased Shai back in November 2018. The process was very quick and easy. I picked her up at the airport and she was nice and comfortable in her crate with a bed and a toy. Shai has a very big personality and brings joy to my life. I’m happy I mad the decision to go with Premier Pups. She is now 1 year old. She’s happy and healthy and loves her new home.
We absolutely love Bella
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!
