Overview
The Yorkshire Terrier is a lovely lap dog that much prefers to be held on their owner's lap all day. They have a dose of attitude combined with a bright and playful nature and are considered a true and loyal companion.
Character
This dog is intelligent, lively, and fearless. They focus entirely on their owner and are extremely affectionate. It has been said that a Yorkshire Terrier requires more human companionship and attention than any other breed.

Does your Yorkshire Terrier - Yorkie bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Yorkshire Terrier can be territorial and likes to have their space respected. They are tolerant of older children if treated with care. The Yorkie can also be somewhat independent and assertive. They get along well with other pets.
Care
This breed's coat requires daily grooming. The hair on top of the head, if grown long, is usually secured with a band or bow. However, if the Yorkshire Terrier is not being used for show, then the coat may be clipped short. Ears and eyes must be cleaned daily. Dental hygiene is also important.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Yorkie's coat is not coarse but is fine and silky to the touch. Unlike other breeds, which have fur, the Yorkshire has hair that is growing constantly. They have no undercoat and do not shed.
Training & Activity
This breed is quick to learn. However, they may become willful in which case training of any kind can become difficult. Training must have consistency and firmness. They do not like to be ignored, so lots of praise will bring out the best in their training. Yorkies require minimal exercise and are suited for short walks and ideal for apartment living or homes with small yards. They love to chase shadows, lay in sunbeams, and tug of war. The more attention this breed receives the better. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Yorkshire Terrier - Yorkie puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Average Yorkie Prices
Yorkies are a very expensive breed and reputable breeders often charge anywhere from $800 to a couple thousand dollars per puppy. If you are looking to buy a puppy and are researching how much Yorkies cost you must first understand there are many factors that come into play when breeders set their price. Locating a Yorkshire Terrier breeder who breeds and registers their puppies with the AKC and include breeding rights will be the most expensive. Purebred puppies listed for sale and registered with the AKC without breeding rights are the most popular. The average cost for a purebred Yorkshire Terrier pup registered with the AKC varies based on many factors. A Yorkie litter from an AKC licensed breeder will average around $1,250, but prices will vary onwards of up to $5,000+ per puppy. Many if not most breeders will require a non-refundable deposit between $250 onwards of up to $500. The average cost of a Yorkie without papers (pet only adoption) will be priced anywhere from $300 to no more than $800. Factors that affect the average price include but are not limited to lineage, bloodlines, gender, coat, size, registration club, and even location.

I have Yorkshire Terrier - Yorkie puppies for sale! See My Profile
I have been an AKC champion bloodline yorkie hobby breeder for 7 years now and prior to that I bred AKC miniature schnauzers. I love yorkies - their beauty, their size, their big personalities, and they are awesome companions! I have been a labor and delivery RN and I love the birthing and new life experience. I love raising these little puppies and seeing the wonderful caring families that adopt my puppies as their new family member. I enjoy keeping myself available to the families that adopt my puppies and being a resource for them as their puppy grows.

Are Yorkie's very playful?

The Yorkishire Terrier breed is very playful, active and spunky. They love their owners and enjoy being with them all of the time. If they are socialized with children at a young age, they can be great with kids. But all interactions between children and a puppy/dog should be supervised. Children can easily scare/injure a Yorkie puppy and make the dog not like children as an adult.

What's the difference between an AKC and a CKC Yorkie?

The AKC stands for the American Kennel Club, while the CKC stands for the Canadian Kennel Club. Both clubs will have their own set standard for the Yorkishire Terrier. Sometimes standards can be quite different between clubs, while others there are no differences. In the case of the Yorkshire Terrier, I don't think there are any big differences between the AKC and CKC standards of the Yorkishire Terrier breed.

I had a female. She was wonderful. Dominate with my other dog a larger Griffon but loving, gentle, and playful. She never showed any aggressive behavior other than occasional barking at other dogs except for occasional vehicles. On occasion, she would attack cars and or trucks. No fear, no stopping her. She would lose focus of all surrounding and take off. Has anyone ever experienced this? Living in the country, I like my dogs with me not leashed to me.

What your dog was displaying was her prey drive. The Yorkshire Terrier is a Terrier. Terriers are a fierce, loyal and above all, tenacious. Your little dog showing no fear with the cars/trucks is because she was born a little tenacious terrier, just like she was bred to be. If you are to get another one again, working with him/her at a young age to ignore cars/trucks is best. Using positive reinforcement training and having him/her in a controlled setting such as being on a leash in the beginning of training would be best.

Can Yorkies be outdoor dogs?

The Yorkshire Terrier was bred as a companion and lap dog, meaning that they are great little family or companion dogs. The breed does not have the fur/ability to be an outside dog. They need to be with their owners/family as that is all they want in life. The Yorkie can be prone to digging or other unacceptable behaviors if the dog is left alone for long periods of time without exercise, stimulation or attention.

Absolutely not. You have to watch them just taking them outside because predators like birds can easily attack them as prey. Honestly, if you are looking for a dog to leave outside you probably aren't a person who deserves a dog in the first place.

Yes, they can as they were originally bred to be Farm dogs to rid the farm of Rodents. You would probably need to find one of the larger type ones as they were originally bred to be much larger and more suitable for outdoor life.

Yorkies ARE NOT currently bred to be left outside. Here on the NW Coast, and in cities across the country many of our little dogs are lost to birds of prey, owls, falcons, eagles, also coyotes, raccoons, large aggressive dogs, etc. They are best kept inside. Even when on a lease with you caution is the operative word. The only way to save against a predator is to pull them with the lease up into your arms and hope you are not attacked as well. Yorkies are the most loyal dogs I have ever owned and are worth the extra caution that must be given them.

I am looking for a larger than normal Yorkshire Terrier. Can Yorkies be bred in different sizes?

A true, pure-bred Yorkie will only be within the AKC, UKC or CKC standards. So no, they should not be any bigger or smaller then the standard that is written for them. If you are looking for a dog like a Yorkie, but a bit larger. I would suggest something like a Lakeland Terrier, Irish Terrier, Welsh Terrier, Wire Fox Terrier, Norfolk Terrier, Cairn Terrier, Scottish Terrier, Australian Terrier, or the Norwich Terrier. Some of their hair isn't as silky as the Yorkie, but they are a bit larger then the Yorkie and some have some of the same temperament/demeanor of the breed.

The original Yorkshire terrier was much larger and weighed as much as 25 pounds. They have been downsized here in the U.S. but occasionally there are larger Yorkie puppies born in a litter. I have an 11 pound male and would not want a Yorkie any smaller. I am a senior adult, larger in size myself, so I love having a larger lap dog!

Yes, I also own a little fellow a bit larger than the norm. He is about 9.5 inches and weighs about 10 lbs. He loves to please, has a sweet temperament, is very smart and is easy to teach. I prefer his size as my other dog is a full sized Australian Shepherd, who loves him. They play continually.

All the answers are true the breed started as a much larger breed than they are now and used as hunting dogs. Sometimes there's what I call a throw-back and one comes out larger than normal. They have been bred down and the Yorkshire Terrier standard is 4 to 7 pounds.

I have a Yorkie that is 3 1/5 lbs and one that is pushing 7-8 lbs., so yes.

Anonymous

Yes, they can as they were originally a larger size and even though breeders continued to downsize them and have the standards changed there are MANY out there larger and many breeders prefer the larger ones as they do not have the issues of hypoglycemia and C-sections that affects the smaller ones.

I have 7 purebred Yorkies, and they weigh 14 lbs., <3 lbs. 5 lbs, 4 lbs., 3.5 lbs, 13 lbs., and 11 lbs, ranging in age from 14 down to 3 yrs. The 5 pounder is the only one who has had all manner of health problems, and is now 10 yrs old. They are all neutered, except my male who weighs slightly less than 3 lbs. My vet doesn't like to do non-emergency procedures because he is so small, but at age 11 he is still as feisty and vigorous as he was 5 years ago.
