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.
Alert, Courageous, Energetic, Loyal, Intelligent, Independent and Playful

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.
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
Belle has been absolutely wonderful. 2 years later and we are still so happy. Premier pups staff was just amazing. Belle came to us on an airplane. She looked very well taken care and was in a very nice crate with toys a blanket and supplies. . I couldn’t imagine purchasing another pet from anyone else! 2 years later and we are still thrilled! Thx premier pups!!!
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!
I just want to thank Premier Pups for three wonderful Yorkies, I got Onyx 5/16/15 Diamond & Trigger 3/16/17. The staff is wonderful and very knowledgeable, they are available 24hrs a day of any questions or concerns. If you want THE BEST of the breed I highly recommend Premier Pups! As a cancer survivor they have brought so much joy to my life, nothing else matters when I see there happy faces. Michael thanks again for everything.
Meet Milo! He's happy, he's healthy and most importantly he is LOVED! Let me tell you if you're apprehensive at the thought of "ordering" a pup online or purchasing a dog that has been bred, cast all your worries aside! I previously purchased a Maltese from Premier Pups in 2010 and had a wonderful experience. He is mild mannered, cuddly and a great family dog. Several years later we wanted to purchase puppies again but for some reason opted to purchase two locally in NJ. After having two very bad experiences (both sick puppies that needed to be returned) I resorted back to Premier Pups for the simple fact that no one compares. This is the only place I recommend for a perfect dog and the only place I'll stick with from now on. Milo and Dolce were both as pictured but most importantly HEALTHY. Both dogs (years apart) never got sick and never had to take to the Vet for health issues other than routine check ups. Dolce is now 7 years old and happy as can be and Milo is right there with him. It would be a mistake to go anywhere else.
Bear formally Rudy, is a teacup yorkie. Thank u so much. He is the best little family member we could have ever asked for. He is the cutest, sweetest little baby boy. He is so spoiled rotten. If I ever decide to add another little baby to the house, I will be returning to premier pups. It was a very easy process. I drove down and picked Bear up. Everyone there is so great and helpful. Thank u again. We love our little boosie bear.
Just want to say thank you so much Premier Pups. I picked up Mia which was named Rebecca on our way home from a family wedding on August 26. Being my first dog, there has been a lot of explaining things to me. She is everything I could ask for. Our vet informed me that she is very healthy. I informed him that it took a lot of research before deciding where to get my puppy from. I have to say, I made a very wise decision. I have not seen or heard of another place that takes as good of care of their puppies as you all do. I truly appreciate the caring and nurturing that goes into each pup. It makes it that much more rewarding for every individual that purchases a pup from you. I have bragged to all my friends on how I would never buy a puppy from another place and have recommended you to many people. Best wishes to all of you now and in the future.
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!
