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.
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.
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.
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.

Can Yorkie's come in a miniature size?

No, there is one set standard for the Yorkshire Terrier. However, some breeders may advertise their dogs/puppies as 'Miniatures', 'Toy', or 'Extra-Small' to entice people to buy from them. But for the dog to be register-able, both parents must be on par with the set standard of the breed.

Anonymous asked:
I have a 'golden' Yorkie with a congenital paw defect that was found wandering the streets. Is she a true Yorkshire Terrier?

2 Comments

The Yorkshire Terrier only comes in one coat coloration. With her been all golden, she is most likely not a purebred. She could have Norfolk Terrier in her, which would give her the all golden coat. If you are interested, you can purchase a dog DNA test from your vet or online and have her tested. The average price is $50.00 - $75.00 for it to be done.

Yorkshire Terriers have hair, and no undercoat. The hair grows continually (like human hair), and as such is hypoallergenic. Their hair requires daily grooming if allowed to grow long and silky. This information can be found repeatedly and universally.

Do Yorkies have fur?

Yes, the Yorkshire Terrier does have fur. However, it is bred specifically to be silky and smooth to the touch. Which is why some people confuse it with 'hair'.

Are Yorkie's very playful?

1 Comment

The Yorkishire Terrier breed is very playful, active and spunky. They love their owners and enjoy being with them all of the time. If they are socialized with children at a young age, they can be great with kids. But all interactions between children and a puppy/dog should be supervised. Children can easily scare/injure a Yorkie puppy and make the dog not like children as an adult.

What's the difference between an AKC and a CKC Yorkie?

2 Comments

The AKC stands for the American Kennel Club, while the CKC stands for the Canadian Kennel Club. Both clubs will have their own set standard for the Yorkishire Terrier. Sometimes standards can be quite different between clubs, while others there are no differences. In the case of the Yorkshire Terrier, I don't think there are any big differences between the AKC and CKC standards of the Yorkishire Terrier breed.

AKC and CKC are simply the names to two registries. AKC is considered the most prestigious in America and CKC is the Canadian Kennel club. You can transfer a foreign registered dog (CKC) into AKC. There are many registries out there, if it matters to you then be sure that your dog is registered in the registry that you feel most comfortable with. Many breeders sell pet dogs without registration to prevent fraud.
