Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkshire Terrier


Height: 7-9 inches

Weight: 3-7 lbs.

Life Span: 12-14 yrs.

Breed Group: Companion Dogs

Overview
Yorkshire terriers are energetic, assertive, demanding toy dogs with large-dog attitudes. They are responsive obedience students but want to rule at home, and even larger dogs will defer to them. In general, they get along with other animals.

They are fine with gentle children over about eight years old, especially if socialized with them at an early age. Yorkies bark to announce the arrival of strangers but are usually friendly.

Appearance
The coat is glossy, fine, silky, straight, and long. The long hair on the head is either parted or tied up with bows. The hair on the muzzle is very long. Coat color is steel blue and golden; puppies are born black and tan.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Yorkies need to be brushed and combed every day. Because they burn up lots of energy dashing around the house, a walk around the block a few times a day is sufficient.

Origins
The Yorkshire terrier originated in 19th-century England, where it was used for ratting.

Special Alerts
It is especially important to obtain a Yorkshire terrier from a reputable breeder.

Breed-related health concerns: hypoglycemia, patellar luxation, Legg-Perthes disease, portocaval shunt (a congenital condition resulting in liver failure, seizures, and possibly death), dental problems, hair loss.
