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. 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.

I have 3 Yorkies, age 5 weighing 6lbs, 5lbs, 4.5 lbs all females. Never before have they been sick or had dandruff. They all 3 developed dandruff after their last visit with their groomer. We have been dealing with the dandruff now for almost a year. They also have had dry mouths and very bad breath! I took them to the Vet and he couldn't pinpoint an diagnosis for me. I gave them the medicine he advised. They all still have the dry mouth and bad breath. Is this common with Yorkies or can you Please Tell me what might be going on with them?

I'm sorry to hear about your experience with the groomer and vet you've been using. Dogs, just like people are individuals. This means that they can easily develop a potential allergy at any time of their life. However, since the dogs are all the same age and living together, I would suggest that it is something in their environment that has changed that is effecting your dogs. It could possibly be the type of shampoo used by your groomer that caused the dandruff. Now for the dry mouth and bad breath, there could be an issue with the food they are eating, or something at home that they are being exposed too. I would highly suggest getting a 2nd opinion on all your dogs by both a new groomer, but also a new vet. It is possible that your regular vet is not noticing something that a pair of fresh eyes might.

Do female Yorkie puppies bark a little, not at all or a lot? Thanks!

1 Comment


All Yorkshire Terriers, both male and female love to hear their own voices. This breed is known to bark a lot, and needs a dedicated owner to socialize and train them from a young pup not to bark at every trigger they come across.

What are the things I should look for when buying a Yorkie?

1 Comment


No matter what breed of dog you as a person chooses, there are always basic steps to go through to make sure the breeder you are getting your pup from is from a reputable, responsible, and knowledgeable breeder. The basic's are learning the health issues of the breed you are looking into and then making sure the breeder has gotten the dam and sire of the litter of pups medically checked for those issues before breeding. Secondly, the breeder should be very open and honest with you when you ask questions, and for being allowed to meet the dam and sire of the litter of puppies. If you are not able to meet the dam or sire, then that is a red flag. There may be a medical or behavioral problem the breeder doesn't want you to know about. Next is to ensure that the dam, sire and puppies are all registered from a kennel club such as AKC, CKC, or UKC if you are paying for a purebred dog. That is the only 100% way to know the dog is purebred. Ask questions and trust your gut. Learn why the breeder got into that breed in the first place, what they do with their dogs before, during and after their breeding program is over. Some breeders treat their dogs as money makers and as soon as a dam is not breeding anymore, they sell off the dog. While other breeders keep their dams for their whole lives because they are a member of the family too, not just there to make money. Use common sense and do your home work on the breed beforehand.

Anonymous asked:
Can a toy Yorkie have teacup Yorkies or will all big Yorkies have teacup Yorkies?



First of, the Yorkshire Terrier is only the Yorkshire Terrier. The names given as Toy and / or Teacup are given to dogs to sort them into preferred sizes for breeders and / or owners. However, there are no true or real different classes of Yorkshire Terrier. The Yorkshire Terrier should weigh in at no more than seven pounds when full grown. The 'Toy' is considered the larger of the Yorkshire Terriers, weighing between 4 - 7lbs, while the 'Teacup' weigh no more than 4lbs when full grown. When breeding, the pedigree or lineage of the dam and sire will determine the size of pups that are produced. Smaller dogs tend to produce smaller young, but it is very much possible for a Toy Yorkshire Terrier coupling to produce a Teacup puppy.


My Yorkie weighed 14 lbs. Why would that be?


Some Yorkies do grow bigger than others. The weight should not make a difference. If you love your pup when it's small. If it gets bigger than anticipated, this should not make you love it less. If you bought your pup to use as breeding, the larger size may not be appropriate for this. Larger Yorkies may still produce smaller Yorkies, but not always. Larger males may be to big to breed smaller females and dangerous for the smaller female. I bought a registered male and he grew to 12 pounds. I had him neutered, and he remains a beloved pet of our family. I have a smaller registered female Yorkie, 5 lbs., that I have bred with smaller registered males from reputable breeders. Sometimes it can be disappointing if the pup you purchase grows bigger than anticipated. Just remember that no matter what the size, every dog has feelings and loves their owners (if they are not abused). They make great family pets and are not a waste or loss. Love your pup and reap the rewards from that love that he/she returns.

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.
