Yorkshire terriers, also known as the ‘Yorkie’, are one of the most popular and sought-after Dogs breeds in the whole world.The Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog breed of terrier type, developed during the 19th century in Yorkshire, England, to catch rats in clothing mills. It is placed in the Toy Terrier section of the Terrier Group by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale and in the Toy Group or Companion Group by other kennel clubs, including the American Kennel Club. A popular companion dog, the Yorkshire Terrier has also been part of the development of other breeds, such as the Australian Silky Terrier. PersonalitySmart and self-assured, the Yorkshire Terrier is a combination of endearingly small size and adventurous terrier spirit.The breed displays a range of personalities.Some are cuddly and perky, wanting nothing more than to follow in their peoples footsteps throughout the day. Others are mischievous, outgoing, and into everything. Set limits, and your Yorkie will be a wonderful companion, but if you spoil him, watch out! Start training when theyre puppies, and youll have much better luck than if you let them have their way and then try to correct bad habits.

Socialization helps ensure that your Yorkie will be a friendly, well-rounded dog.
