    Default Dog of the day: Yorkshire Terrier


    Yorkshire Terrier Facts
    • AKA Yorkie, Scotch Terrier
    • Size Small
    • Easy to train Medium
    • Grooming Low
    • Shedding Low
    • Exercise needed Occassional walk
    • Energy level High
    • Protection High, makes an effective watchdog
    • Good with children Yes, with gentle, older kids


    Such is the popularity of the little Yorkshire Terrier that he has the honor of being at the number two position on the AKC breed popularity list. One of the world's smallest dogs, the Yorkshire Terrier is a cheerful, sociable, and adaptable little creature. Affection and loyal, yet courageous and confident, this is a dog that is suited to both experienced and inexperienced owners. These dogs make great companions and loving pets, with their love for being pampered or cuddling up with their owner. Yet, in true terrier style they have plenty of spirit, are agile, and have a very inquisitive nature. Training the Yorkshire Terrier shouldn't prove too much of a problem, as he is very intelligent and quick to learn. Housebreaking, on the other hand, can be quite a different matter. The Yorkshire Terrier can be very possessive of his food and belongings, and some have a tendency to bark too much. These little dogs will certainly bark to raise an alarm, making them effective watchdogs.
    Early socialization is recommended with the Yorkshire Terrier to promote stability and confidence. Although he is not overly demanding in terms of exercise, he does have plenty of energy and will appreciate a place to frolic and play. However, this must be a secured and safe place, as he is inquisitive, agile, and an avid chaser, all of which could spell trouble should he escape. He can also be easily injured or bullied by larger dogs, so he should not be allowed off his leash when out and about. Despite his size, the Yorkshire Terrier will often try to dominate other dogs. They do tend to get along fine with other pets. When it comes to children they are best suited around older, gentle kids. These are very small dogs that can get easily injured and scared by rough, boisterous children. The Yorkshire Terrier is a versatile creature that is just as happy dashing around the garden and playing as he is cuddling up and getting thoroughly pampered.

    Huh, it's odd that they consider grooming "low" for Yorkies, my BFF's Mum has 2 and she's forever brushing gnarls out of their coats and cleaning brownish-red goop from their eyes.

    Yorkie's are funny little dogs. I grew up with two of them at home, plus my aunt had one. They are funny little doggies. Now my mom has a Silky Terrier...which looks like a bigger Yorkie..

    Here's a Silky

    I think they're so cute.
    I had a client that had two and I couldn't wait to see them.
