Also known as Yorkies.
Terrier was developed in England from the Waterside Terrier,
rough-coated Black & Tan English Terrier, Paisley &
Clydesdale Terriers. Originally bred by working class weavers, the
Yorkie quickly became the darling of the Victorian upper class.
Unlike its ancestors, the Yorkie was bred purely to be a companion
animal not a working terrier breed. A true "toy terrier" the Yorkie
is a vivacious & lively companion that also makes a great alarm
Yorkies are not aware that they are a small dog! The males can be
very territorial, and will even attack much larger dogs if they
wander into their yard. This breed is clever, spunky and brave, and
full of self-importance.
Yorkies demand lots of attention from their human family, and are
very sweet and loving dogs. They make excellent watchdogs, and are
wary of strangers.
Yorkies are not recommended for families with small children. They
can be nippy at times, and due to their small size they can easily be
injured with rough play. They can get along well with older children,
and play very well with other pets.
Yorkies are great for apartments as they do not require a lot of
exercise. They will play energetically indoors and tire themselves
out regularly. Yorkies do not like the cold weather and need to be
protected with a sweater during the winter.
This breed does need daily brushing due to their long hair, but they
shed very little. They are prone to tooth decay and need their teeth
cleaned in order to prevent this.
We are a smaller breeder in Antioch, Ca, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our purpose is to breed for quality not quantity. We pride ourselves with each and every puppy! Each of our puppies is given lots of love and kisses from day one....yep, they already come pre-spoiled!
