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.

YORKSHIRE TERRIER


Date: 11/23/2020
Name: Nugget, Scrappy and Woogie
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Client: Melissa
Loc: Syracuse, NY

I got Nugget Chipperman (formerly Trigger) 3 years ago as a companion to my older Yorkie, Simba, but then decided he eventually needed a younger brother as Simba was getting a little older. So, then came Scrappy Doodles (formerly Jenkins), who is now just under 2-years-old, and since I was on a roll with having the youngsters, I decided “why not have 2 puppies since I haven’t slept in 6 months as it is?!” In came Woogie Bandit, and they are the closest pack of brothers I could ever hope for! I have no regrets at all getting any of my three boys from Premier Pups, and I’m sure in the future....far future now, as I am just starting to sleep again after Woogie just turned 1 in October....they’ll get another brother one day.

I bought my Micro Yorkie in June 2016. He is 3 years old now. It's so hard to find a true micro puppy. But my sweet little Max is a true Micro. He weighs 3.1 pounds. He is the love of my life. Premier Pups is the best place ever. Their puppies are healthy and happy. I wouldn't buy a puppy anywhere else. Max says hi Premier Pups!!

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!

Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Client: Allison and Zachary Hostetler
Loc: North Canton, Ohio

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!

Approximately two years ago, my family and I decided to buy a yorkie (Rascal, who we renamed Goliath). This year, we came to the conclusion that Goliath needed a partner to play with, so be bought Rebecca (who we’ve now named Cleo). Now, I’m very happy that we have two yorkies instead of one.
