A small, affectionate dog, the Yorkshire Terrier has been a popular breed all over the world for decades. They were originally “ratters” – bred to catch rats – for the working class of England, and were one of the first AKC registered breeds after their move to the United States in the late 1800s. These days, Yorkies are known for being independent and feisty at times, but they learn very quickly and are keen to be near their owners. Yorkies are small dogs, typically weighing in at an average of 5-7 pounds, and, although nobody can guarantee any dog is hypoallergenic, Yorkies are often referred to as hypoallergenic because they have human-like hair instead of fur.
Yorkshire Terrier puppies may be small but there is a lot of dog packed into that little package. Bred to catch rats in Victorian England, Yorkshire Terrier puppies were one of the first AKC registered breeds. These days, Yorkshire Terrier puppies are still immensely popular and known for being independent, tenacious and just a bit feisty. Yorkie puppies also learn quickly and make excellent watchdogs. Lovingly referred to as “shadow dogs”, Yorkshire Terrier puppies seldom leave their owners’ side and soak up all the attention you can give them.
Yorkshire Terrier puppies make terrific pets but, like all dogs, there are few things prospective Yorkie owners should know before they go looking for Yorkshire Terrier puppies for sale. First, Yorkies are small, only 5-7 pounds, which means you have to take special precautions when handling them and puppy proofing your home. Second, though nobody can guarantee any dog is entirely hypoallergenic, Yorkies are typically a good choice for people with dog allergies.
Third, though Yorkshire Terrier puppies are friendly and affectionate, they have a very large personality that does not always get along with other dogs (especially big dogs) and rowdy children. Like all dogs, Yorkshire terrier puppies need exercise, a nutritious diet and plenty of love and attention from their owners. They also need regular grooming and extra attention during housebreaking and obedience training.
As a purebred with a strict breed standard, Yorkshire terrier puppies are very homogenous – all Yorkshire Terrier puppies flaunt a long-haired blue and tan coat; possess a feisty, vigorous temperament and radiate an aura of self-importance.
