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.

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.

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

Her paw might be irritating her. You should take her in to your veterinary clinic, they should give you a good answer explaining it.They will probably help you stop it. Hope this helps!

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.

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

1 Comment

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.
