Dog Breed:   YORKIE

View Yorkie Sculpture

Despite their reputation as "girly," Yorkies are actually fearless and fun!  The English used the Yorkie to clear rodents from their houses. Today, they are one of the most popular toy breeds.

Often misnamed "the teacup Yorkie" (a made-up name for extra small Yorkies) and misspelled Yorshire Terrior, the Yorkshire Terrier's heritage is a mixed, and somewhat mysterious one. Most likely he is a cross between the Dandie Dinmont (a black and tan terrier) and the Skye Terrier, and was developed in the western regions of Yorkshire, England where he started out as a ratting terrier. Further developments, which included a smaller and smaller frame over the years and the long silky coat, are possibly a cross with the Maltese. The breed soon became a lapdog. It was recognized and named in 1886 in England where it continues to be the most popular Toy dog. It shares a similar popularity in North America. The Yorkie makes a good pet for the elderly or stay-at-home types; he does not require very much exercise. The average lifespan is 14-16 years in a healthy Yorkie.

Height: 9" (22.9cm)

Weight: 3 - 7 lbs (1.3 - 3.1 kg)

Coat Type: The glossy coat, one of the Yorkie's most distinctive features, is profuse and long, straight, flowing and silky. Color on the body is a steel blue, with rich tan markings on the head, chest and legs. Daily grooming is required to keep the silky coat free of tangles and clean.

Health Precautions: This particular breed is very prone to food allergies. Therefore it is recommended to feed these dogs fresh food. Fresh chicken and turkey and beef. Fresh raw vegetables and fruits. Fresh brown rice and oatmeal. Fresh yogurt, eggs, and cottage cheese.  The other option is human-grade kibble or holistic dry food.   There is also some speculation regarding limiting vaccinations and exposure to ordinary garden and yard chemicals.

Temperament: The Yorkshire Terrier's personality is keen, active, alert and always willing to please. He is friendly but prefers the company of adults
over children.

Special Interest: This dainty, tiny dog was at one time used to keep down the rat population in mines and mills. Keep in mind, however, that today's Yorkie is about half the size of the original 15-pound dog of the 1800's.
