Color(s)
blue and tan. Yorkshire Terriers are born black, gradually attaining their blue and tan coloration as they mature.
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. The Yorkshire Terrier is 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.
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 Yorkshire Terrier can also be somewhat independent and assertive. They get along well with other pets.
Care
The Yorkshire Terrier'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.
Coat
The Yorkshire Terrier'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
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.
Activity
The Yorkshire Terrier requires minimal exercise. They 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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Yorkshire Terrier - Yorkie puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Size of Yorkshire Terrier If my yorkie is 1 pound 8ozs at at 13 weeks, how big will she be when she is fully grown?

1 Comment

Anonymous

No one will be able to give you that information accurately. The main thing to do is to look at the parents of your pup. He/She will most likely be within the range of the parents. If the breeder is a responsible, qualified, reputable and knowledgeable breeder, then the pup should be within set standards of the Yorkshire Terrier breed. Keeping your puppy active and feeding him/her a high quality grain-free puppy food will help your pup grow up healthy, strong and happy.

Do Yorkies have low blood sugar and sleep a lot?

Low blood sugar is common with diabetes and sleeping a lot can mean that your dog is not feeling well. A vet visit is in order to determine what could be wrong with your pup.

I'm a Yorkie breeder. Research small breed puppies and Hypoglycemia on your computer. Very young yorkies, or for that matter any small breed dog can have Hypoglycemia. It is caused if they don't eat, or don't eat enough, or have diarrhea and so they don't get enough benefit from what the little they are eating. It's because they have a very small liver and can only product a small amount of sugar at a time, so they need to eat often. I would keep a small bottle of Honey at the house. If the puppy is having a problem getting up, or walking (looks drunk), is having a problem focusing, Give the puppy a little honey on your finger a couple of times. This will go directly into his blood stream and reverse his problem. AFTER doing this call the vet and then take him to the vets. If you instead make an appoint and then take him to the vets you are wasting valuable time, he will continue to get worse during the time you put off doing anything.

Are Yorkie puppies good with kids if the puppy is brought into the family with kids already? I had a Yorkie many years ago but then kids came years after and he was already accustomed to being the center of attention.

The main thing to realize is what a breed was created for in the first place. The Yorkshire Terrier was created as a companion dog, so their instincts are to be attached to their owners and want to be with them all the time. So when you know that you will be having kids, it is a must to socialize your puppy/dog to children. Yorkshire Terrier's can be perfectly fine with children as long as they are socialized with children at a young age. But please make sure the kids understand that the dog has boundaries and all interactions between children and puppy/dog must be supervised at all times.

The Yorkshire terrier was actually created to kill rats in England...Yorkshire is comprised of many different breeds, to get it the way it looks today... The Maltese and the skye terrier being two of the breeds..The west highland white was probably added also. It is a great dog with kids.... is not yappy,.and has no shedding or odor. It may be the perfect toy..

I have a Yorkie and she has always been great with kids. I have also read where they were created to kill rats in England. Our Gracie is getting older but still a funny dog. If she thinks she has done something wrong she will turn her back on you. She will stay that way until you tell her everything is okay and then hold her.

Teacup Yorkie Question How big does a Teacup Yorkie Get?

4 Comments

Anonymous

The term teacup is used by some breeders to identify very small. The standard for a yorkie is 4 to 7 lbs.
6/10/2013 3:51:44 PM

Anonymous

AKC set the standard size of a show yorkie between 4-7 lbs. Many who advertise "teacup" are trying to make you think the puppy will only reach 3 lbs. Most of the time they are wrong about the adult size. Keep in mind, the smaller the dog, the more chance of health defects and legs breaking when jumping off the couch, etc. Vets recommend a female be at least 5 lbs. for breeding. Always ask to see the parents, that way you get a better idea of exactly how large a puppy may grow.

As a breeder for over 8 years, I have consistently raised Teacup Yorkies that weigh 2.5 - 3.5 lbs., fully grown. They are extremely healthy, intelligent, a constant companion and draws attention wherever they go!! Wonderful watch dogs both inside and outside. "A large dog in a small package.".

All dogs bark at one time or another. You can however train your puppy to be quiet when you tell them to be. I have a male and female yorkie and they are quiet little things. It all depends on how they are raised and how secure they feel.

How do you go about pricing for sale My yorkie male about 2-3 years old

1 Comment

Anonymous

There are many factors that should influence the price. You should refer to the AKC standards to determine how closely your pup meets those standards. Also consider such things as an underbite, neutered, housebroken (for adult dogs). Unless you dog is a champion or registered champion or proven stud, you will likely get less than for a puppy. The importance is finding the right home for him. One where he will be cared for and receive the medical care he may need over his lifetime.

Take a thin piece of toilet paper and a small spray bottle and very slowly spray the tiniest bit of water on the dog's eyes. If your yorkie is irritated, then take the toilet paper and cover the eyes this will reduce the stress level

My vet showed me how to clean the eye matter so it won't build and cake up. After the bath, keep dabbing water on the matter with a QTip. Once it softens, depending on how thick the crust is...use a plastic flea comb and gently scrape the matter downward from the closed eye, towards the side and end of the nose. Bathing often and using this method will eliminate painful crust buildup. I hope this helps all dog owners.

The term "hypoallergenic dog" is misleading. People are allergic to the dander, or dog skin. Yorkies do not shed hair on your furniture, which is great. I am a groomer of 20 years and tell all my clients to use a hypoallergenic shampoo on their pets, and a good conditioner for the skin, and wash them at least once a week. Vacuum with a hypoallergenic bag, and wash all bedding at least once a week as well. Don't let the pet sleep in your bed. All these things, as well as a little allergy med. will help greatly with her allergies. My husband is allergic too. Hope this helps.

My Yorkie is 5 years old, and we have fed him IMS ever since a puppy! We never have had a problem, and the Vet said that it was good for him. We also give him treats, that always matches his age. Do not give a lot of treats, because it can make them too fat so limit two times a day. Whatever you do, please do not feed table food, because we made that mistake and had to take him to the vet for stomach problems. Yorkies have sensitive stomachs! Hope that this has helped you!

I feed my yorkies "Fromm" puppy food. My female is 5 lbs and my male is 4 lbs. so they need the extra calories. Dogs eat many types of fruits and veggies as well. I feed mine only organic: apples, bananas, carrots, broccoli, etc. I do not feed them avocados, or grapes. If you have any concerns, ask your vet. It is also, ok to feed your dogs cooked meats, organic or grass fed is best. Do not feed pork products, hot dogs, bologna, etc. Only chicken, turkey and beef. Dogs also love hard boiled eggs. Of course, feed these items in moderation, pets need the nutrients in the dog food.

1 Comment

Anonymous

Constipation is caused by diet or an underlying health problem. If he "scoots" across the floor then his anal glands may be impacted. If you can't get to the vet, try adding some fiber to his diet. Give a small slice of apple, organic is best. You can also mix a little canned pumpkin with some plain organic yogurt. Make sure there is always fresh water available. If the problem continues after you change the diet, then get him to the vet. Sometimes there are obstructions or even tumors blocking the exit.

why does my yorkie puppy want to eat her own feces?

2 Comments

Sometimes dogs eat their own pooh due to a lack of mineral or vitamin in their food. You may want to change the food. Offer lots of toys to keep the puppy busy. You can also spray the pooh with bitter apple spray to make it yucky to their taste buds. This is a very common problem among all dogs, and discipline doesn't stop it. Find out what you puppy needs. If you can't, take it to a vet.

My vet said it was a "pack" instinct, so other predictors won't discover the den of dogs and attack the dogs and puppies. Simple solution is to remove the feces as soon as the puppy "potties."

Average 3 puppies. It is very important to know the breeding date. Yorkies sometimes need C Sections esp if they are under 7 lbs. You will need to have your Vet evalutate and perhaps do xrays to determine if a C Section should be done .

Take him to the vet to make sure that he doesn't have a bladder infection. It that's not the case, take his water bowl up before 7p, take him out no earlier than 10p and take him out no later than 5p. Gotta remember that he's a baby and his little bladder can't hold it all night.
