Yorkshire Terrier

Was very hesitant to purchase our new family member online, but fell in love with Kady (Dixie). Was very pleased with the whole process. Communication was great from Day 1 with Puppy Spot.

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

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

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 Utah?

Utah has some definite areas for improvement for pets. Let’s dig into the numbers and find out Utah’s strengths and weaknesses when it comes to dog-friendly living.


Animal advocacy group Pawsafe conducted a study ranking each state by its pet-friendliness. The study evaluated states according to several important factors like animal cruelty laws and regulations, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.


In their study, Utah ranked as the 37th most pet-friendly state. Unfortunately, the state did not score well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards. Definitely room for improvement.


Safewise is a national safety review site. Their study on animal safety also ranked states. In their study, Utah is ranked as the 35th most pet-friendly state. Combining these two studies puts Utah somewhere towards the middle to the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Utah

Here’s an upside: BringFido lists Utah as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1500 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also lists Millcreek Canyon and Memory Grove as popular dog-friendly attractions within Salt Lake City.


Thirty-six percent of Utah residents own a dog. This is below the national dog ownership rate of 40%, though not by much. 


What kinds of dogs do Utahans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Utah are Labradors, Retrievers, and German Shepherds. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Collies, and French Bulldogs. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Utah

Utah saved 39,358 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 4740 animals were killed over this same period. 


Forty-two out of 62 of the animal shelters within Utah are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is relatively high, and the state has an above-average save rate of 88%. However, this is just short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state.
