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.

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?

2 Comments

Anonymous

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..

Go get her Spayed as soon as possible. She is too young and the birth could harm or even kill her.

Teacup Yorkie Question How big does a Teacup Yorkie Get?

3 Comments    Show 1 more comment(s)

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.

Are Yorkie's known for barking?

Yorkie's were breed to hunt rats and rabbits. But now is a good lap dog. Most yorkie's want to know everything so may bark if someone is at the door or see a bird or squirrel.

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.
