Yorkshire Terrier Characteristics
Yorkshire terriers, or Yorkies, are a small and energetic breed – with personalities that far outstrip their tiny size! With their feisty nature also comes a beautiful loyalty to and protectiveness of their humans. Their small stature makes them great for apartment living and a companion for the whole family. Known as big dogs in a small dog body, Yorkies will not hesitate to bark or stand up to the sight of new people or animals
Yorkshire Terriers are the smallest breed in the terrier group. These feisty, high-energy dogs are known for their big personalities and adorable appearance. They can come in a wide variety of colors, including gold, yellow, black, and steel blue.
Yorkies are sassy, but they are also charming and highly affectionate with their owners. Their small size makes them great apartment dogs, but remember that they’re a bit yappy – a trait your neighbors may not like.
Yorkies need daily exercise, whether it’s a quick walk around the block or a quick play session in the yard. Yorkies play nicely with other animals but may get a little territorial when introduced to a new friend. So, you’ll want to be extra careful if you bring a new pet into your home.
Yorkies were originally bred as rat hunters, and they still carry the loyalty expected of a working-class purebred. Their size makes them great with kids. While they have a strong personality, Yorkies can become attached to their owners and will need plenty of attention.
As one of the smaller breeds, Yorkies only grow to weigh up to 7 pounds and 7 to 8 inches in height. They are usually quite healthy and enjoy an average lifespan of 11 to 15 years.
How dog-friendly is Arkansas?
Studies are divided over just how dog-friendly Arkansas is. The state has a long going for it, and a few areas for definite improvement. Let’s explore the two primary studies: one from Pawsafe and one from Safewise.
Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, conducted a study to rank each state according to its pet-friendliness. They evaluated states by several important indicators, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and access to services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.
In their study, Pawsafe ranks Arkansas as the #1 most pet-friendly state! That’s right, number one! The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
However, Safewise, a site that reviews safety across the country, came to a very different conclusion. In their study, Arkansas is ranked as the 37th most pet-friendly state. Not terrible, but certainly not number one.
While the two studies produced contrasting results, assuming Arkansas falls somewhere in the middle of the two still puts the state towards the top of the list. So we consider Arkansas to be pet-friendly overall.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Arkansas
Arkansas saved 38,197 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 6718 animals were killed over this same period.
Forty-three out of 93 of the animal shelters within Arkansas are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is rather low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 78%. However, this is short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. We hope to see improvement in years to come.
