Yorkshire Terrier

DOG BREED DESCRIPTION:

Yorkshire Terrier

In its early days, the Yorkshire Terrier, which developed in the north of England in the mid-19th century, had the job of chasing rats in the coal pits and cotton mills. While the original Yorkies were larger dogs, a cross to the Maltese reduced the breed’s size. It began to be regarded as a Toy breed, rather than a Terrier, and was given the breed name of Yorkshire Terrier in 1886.

These pint-sized dogs are characterized by their long silky locks and their feisty and determined personalities. The Yorkshire Terrier is a beloved companion pet, but not suitable for families with younger children. Born black and tan, a Yorkshire Terrier’s true colour can take up to three years to appear and can range from tan to silver. It’s long, silky coat is non-shedding and requires regular brushing.

Yorkies have minimal exercise requirements, are highly intelligent and trainable, but do require constant attention and have a reputation for being alert watchdogs!
