Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkshire Terrier with his tongue out

Yorkshire Terriers are members of the toy group. A standard Yorkshire Terrier weighs between 5 and 7 pounds, although a teacup Yorkshire Terrier or a toy Yorkshire Terrier can weigh as little as 3 pounds. These small dogs have a unique coat. Yorkshire Terriers have no undercoat so they do not shed. Yorkshire Terriers do need regular grooming to keep their human-like hair in good condition. Yorkshire Terrier dogs were originally bred from working terriers so they still have some of the temperament characteristics of working terriers.

A normal Yorkshire Terrier is very intelligent. Yorkshire Terriers are also very independent. In spite of their small stature Yorkshire Terriers make excellent watch dogs. They don’t sleep heavily and are quick to go investigate when they hear a noise. Yorkshire Terriers have a lot of energy and enjoy a good romp through the house even though they don’t need nearly the amount of exercise a Saint Bernard or other large dog would. Yorkshire Terriers are good family pets, although they might get too wound up around small children. Like most toy breeds, Yorkshire Terriers may snap or bite when they feel threatened or when they are very wound up.
