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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The average cost of a Yorkie without papers (pet only adoption) will be priced anywhere from $300 to no more than $800.

When is the best time to breed my TeaCup Yorkie? She is 1 1/2 yr old.

Before breeding, you need to do several things with your girl. This includes ensuring that your dog is registered with a kennel club, that you have the breeding rights to that dog, and all of the health checks needed for her breed. The Yorkshire Terrier should be cleared of distichiasis, hydrocephalus, hypoplasia of dens, Legg–Calvé–Perthes syndrome, luxating patella, portosystemic shunt, retinal dysplasia, tracheal collapse and bladder stones. Once your dog has been cleared of all health issues, then you can look for a male dog with an owner that has done the same. The dogs should be of the same kennel club with no relation between them. At that time, when your female goes into heat, you can breed her to the male.

Anonymous asked:
How do you know if your puppy is AKC/AKA registered? Is it possible that someone can make fake registration papers showing that they are registered and health checked?

1 Comment


The sad fact of life is that anything can be faked. So yes, it is possible, but it is not widely done. To know 100% sure that your puppy is AKC registered is to contact the AKC themselves and verify the registration # of both the puppy, and the dam and sire. If the #'s match, then there isn't a problem, however if they don't them that is obviously fraud. As for health checks, there are different levels of health checks, but OFA registration or any other register-able health checking can all be verified by the registration number on the certificate.

Anonymous asked:
I have a 6 month old female Yorkie and weights less than 5lbs, but I want to know what do I need to do to find out if it's original or purebred and not a mix and if I can register her myself to the AKC?

1 Comment


The only way to be able to register the puppy with the AKC is for the parents to be registered to the AKC and for the breeder to have registered the litter so the puppy would be eligible for registration. If you are interested to find out if your dog is purebred or not, the best way to do so is to purchase a DNA test from your vet or online and have your dogs saliva checked to make sure she is purebred.

Anonymous asked:
For my first Yorkshire Terrier, should I get a male or female?

1 Comment


The gender of the puppy or dog that you get is completely up to you. There is no difference in behavior or anything like that, every dog is different and the bond you will have with your dog will be as strong as you make it. The more time/effort spent into your dog, the more solid the bond. Once you've selected a breeder, ask to spend time with the dam and sire of the litter; so you can see if you bond more with the dam or the sire. After the litter has been born and the pups have had their first set of shots at 6 - 7 weeks old; spend time with the whole litter and see what puppy matches your energy.

Anonymous asked:
What is the lifespan of the Yorkshire Terrier?



The average lifespan of the Yorkshire Terrier is 13 - 16 years. The lifespan of any dog will depend on several things including but not limited to the pedigree of the dog, the fitness of the dog throughout its life, when the dog was spayed/neutered, the quality of food the dog eats throughout his/her life, and the preventative and/or curative care he/she gets throughout his/her life.


I just put my little girl to rest last month at the age 17.5 yrs. I wouldn't consider her of great breeding but she was very cute and extremely spoiled by myself and a great puppy sitter.
