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

We purchased Timmy from Premier Pups 2/25/17. He has brought so much joy and laughter to our family. We could not be happier with Timmy and with our experience with Premier Pups. Chase was our adoption specialist and was such a nice, informative young man. We highly recommend Premier Pups.
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.
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!
We picked up Chloe almost 2 weeks ago. She had her first vet appointment today and they said she is very healthy. She is the cutest tiniest puppy with the sweetest personality. The people at Premiere Pups have been great about calling to check on our girl and answering any questions we have. I would definitely recommend them and I have. We love our Chloe. She is perfect for our family.
We purchased King in September he is now . We love him so dearly , after our lost of our baby prince (teacup) Yorkshire. King was a perfect fit for our family . He is so handsome and healthy . We highly recommended premiere pups !! Their breeds are true and great customer service . We call them with any questions and they have the answer . Will be purchasing again soon
This little girl is so spoiled, we love her so much. Premier Pups is so caring. If you have any apprehension with them. Don't. They care about their babies. They have called several times to check on her and if we have any questions or concerns. Sammi has been to the vet and she's perfect and healthy. I will recommend them absolutely.
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
We love our little fur baby, we purchased him as a gift to ourself and we are in love with him, he is healthy, playful, and loving. Will be back to order again once we get used to having this little baby
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!
