  • Overview

  • From a working-class “ratter” to recognition as one of the world’s most prestigious pure breeds, the Yorkshire Terrier is an icon of breed shows and a favorite the world over.

    Seven pounds of silky floor-length hair, the Yorkshire Terrier’s elegant disposition would not be out of place on the lap of a palace-dwelling royal.

    Don’t be fooled. The “Yorkie” maybe a toy-size terrier, but the little canine possesses a tenacious, often feisty temperament that quickly elevates the bossy pooch to the top of the familial hierarchy.

    Hypoallergenic, compact and delightfully intelligent, Yorkies are the perfect city-dwelling companion. In fact, Yorkies are so well-suited to apartment living that they are frequently recognized as the most popular dog breed in cities across the U.S.

Yorkshire Terrier

I loved the updates while waiting for our puppy. When the travel day came, our puppy chaperone kept us posted every step of the way. My vet confirmed our new puppy is very healthy and is socialized. He is a joy to have in our family!
