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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

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

2 Comments

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!

Do male or female Yorkshire Terrier puppies make for better long term companions?

The Yorkshire Terrier was bred as a companion dog and they are amazing at that. They are very loyal and spunky little dogs that need to be with their owners all the time. They can have behavioral problems if left alone too much. As for which gender is better, there is no research making one better than the other. It all depends on you, the owner, if you have a preference to gender or not.

My husband and I are truckers, sometimes gone 1-3 weeks at a time - would a teacup Yorkshire Terrier do well in this type of environment?

Are you planning on taking the puppy with you when you are gone? If so, then the dog should do just fine. But if you plan on leaving the dog with a family member or boarding facility, then I would not suggest a dog for your situation.

A lot of Yorkies get car sick. Mine throw up nearly all the time when they go on car rides. Just something to keep in mind. Feel free to visit my website www.royaltytracksyorkies.com.

If it's a puppy and it's not potty trained how do you train it?

Teacup Yorkies are very delicate. I would advise a larger size Yorkie for your situation.

What is the best food to feed a Yorkie?

The best food to feed a Yorkshire Terrier is a raw or grain-free dog food. There are many grain-free dog foods with a small kibble option for small dogs. Go into any of your local pet supply stores and you should be able to find a grain-free small kibble dog food easily.

We use Purina and have never had issues.

I would recommend a quality meat based dog (Meat being the first ingredient on the label). A meat based food causes less stomach issues, less output and more nutrients the animal can use.

If my Yorkie is 1 pound 8 ozs at 13 weeks, how big will she be when she is fully grown?

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.

Some say you can double the weight at 12 weeks but our puppies sadly have failed to read the chart and comply with it. Puppies are genetically programmed to be whatever size they will be and nobody can predetermine what that will be. Been breeding Yorkies for 25 years and I've yet to have one that could read the ever-changing Breed Standards and completely comply with them. Just recently the standards were changed and removed the Black/Tans from the Standard - I just don't think 'the many' Black/Tan ones out there that were breed standard the day before the standard changed will be able to only produce the new standard "Blue/Tan" only puppies so a breed standard isn't a die-hard way of judging a pup. I've had 5# parents produce 10# puppies and 10# parents produce 3# puppies so you get what you get!
