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.

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.
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.
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.
Since receiving our Yorkie, on August 10,2018, the House has been full of love and happiness. He arrived with a crate, familiar toys, food and medications. He was extremely clean and had a good temperament. He adjusted easily to the home and has become a part of the family immediately! The breeder would email daily and call to check on our puppy for the first 2 weeks and offered assistance as needed. Premier pups is an excellent, reputable breeder with beautiful puppies. Our puppy is a handsome little guy and so well behaved! We love our purchase and are so thankful to have found premier pups!
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.
After searching locally and not being able to find a Yorkie puppy that was what we wanted, we decided to look online. We ordered a Yorkie puppy from Premier Pups. She was just what we were expecting from the online description and is such a joy. We named her Bella. She has a great temperament and is the size we were looking for. It was very refreshing to find her weight and birthdate posted online, since we had found that most local breeders were offended to be asked to weigh their puppies (since it exposes their scam of selling larger dogs for teacup prices). We weighed bella when she arrived and were so relieved to find that her weight was right in line with what was posted on Premier Pups website. We are very satisfied with our purchase and recommend buying from Premier Pups.
Here are photos of Lily and Maddy. They are 3 years old now. Absolutely adorable and sweet. We love them like crazy. Lily is smart and an amazing athlete. Maddy is sweet and simple. They have a wonderful relationship with each other and never, ever fight. Getting them was one of the best decisions ever!
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!
On August 19, 2018, we made the 3.5 hour drive to pick up our new precious baby. The experience was so easy and the staff was wonderful at helping us every step of the way. He is the sweetest little pup and such a blessing to our entire family.
We loved getting our little guy from PremierPups! Everyone was really helpful and the communication was great, I enjoyed the follow-up calls as well, as it ensured me that they really cared for their puppies. Bucky has been with us for about 3 months now and we couldn't be happier! He adjusted very quickly and loves playing outside, meet new people and follows us everywhere we go. We love our sweet guy - thanks to everyone at PremierPups for all the help :)
