  • 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.
