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.
