Yorkshire Terrier Puppies For Sale

Yorkshire terrier dogs are small dogs. As toy-sized dogs, they will only weigh about 3 to 7 pounds even at adulthood. Standing 6 to 7 inches tall, they exude a lot of energy in a very small package.

The Yorkshire Terrier was originally developed in the 19th century in Yorkshire, England. This was a working dog whose primary purpose was to catch rats in clothing mills. Nicknamed the Yorkie, this is classified as a toy dog by many clubs. Details as to how the breed actually originated are scarce; as a Mrs. A. Foster said in 1886, "If we consider that the mill operatives who originated the breed...were nearly all ignorant men, unaccustomed to imparting information for public use, we may see some reason why reliable facts have not been easily attained."

However, in the 1860s, a Yorkshire Terrier show dog named Huddersfield Ben began to be seen at dog shows throughout Great Britain, and became the defining "prototype," as it were, of the classic Yorkshire Terrier. His coat was perhaps a little bit more wiry than today's Yorkshire terriers, but he was considered the best dog of this breed during his lifetime. Many of today's show-worthy Yorkshire Terriers have one or more crosses of his blood in their pedigrees. Ben himself was killed when he was hit by a carriage at the age of six in 1871, but he lives on in his breed and is in fact considered the father of the Yorkshire Terrier breed. When he died, his body was preserved under glass so that people could continue to see this most famous dog.

In 1872, the Yorkshire Terrier came to North America and was registered with the American Kennel Club in 1885 as part of its Terrier Group. It became a very popular breed during the Victorian era both as a pet and as a show dog. As Americans, too, began to embrace a Victorian lifestyle, they also embraced the Yorkshire Terrier.

Although the breed fell off in popularity in the 1940s, a Yorkshire Terrier named Smoky became a World War II hero and helped to stimulate a resurgence in people's desire for Yorkshire Terriers. Smoky was found by an American soldier in the jungles of New Guinea, who sold her to fellow soldier Bill Wynne for $6.44. Smoky accompanied her master on many missions; in total, she was credited with serving 12 combat missions. She survived 150 air raids and was awarded eight battle stars. Her master said that Smoky once saved his life by warning him of incoming fire on a transport ship. She died at the age of 14 at home in Cleveland with Wynne, long after her time on the battlefield was over. She was buried in a World War II .30 caliber ammo box at the Rocky River Reservation in Lakewood, Ohio.

The Yorkshire Terrier is a tiny dog, weighing only between 3 and 7 pounds in adulthood and standing just 6 to 7 inches high at the shoulder. Show dogs must have glossy, fine, straight, and silky hair. It's traditionally kept long for show, parted down the middle of the back and combed straight on either side. The topcoat color is gray to steel blue, with dark hair on the tail, and tan hair on the chest, head, and legs.

When puppies are born, they are fully black with tan points; these markings fade and as they get older as their traditional colors come out. Occasionally, Yorkshire Terriers are also a brown color, with no black pigment. However, it should be noted that Yorkshire Terriers that don't have traditional colors may have health problems. Color alone does not necessarily mean a terrier won't be healthy, but colors beyond the typical blue and tan can simply mean health problems and may signal genetic abnormalities.

Yorkshire Terriers are surprisingly confident, self-assured little dogs, and are active, affectionate, and very loyal. They love attention, but they need a very strong disciplinary hand. Because they are so strong-natured, and because their tiny, adorable appearance may erroneously cause owners to pamper or baby them, they can develop what's called Small Dog Syndrome.

With Small Dog Syndrome, little dogs that are not properly disciplined and trained by their owners can become, to put it bluntly, spoiled rotten brats. Yorkshire Terriers need a calm but assertive "alpha" owner, an owner who will take charge and make sure the dog listens and obeys. With the proper structure and training and with the proper leader, though, Yorkshire Terriers are intensely loyal, sweet, and affectionate to their owners. As long as they are given the proper discipline, they can be trusted with children, although they should not be left with small children if they haven't been given the kind of structure and discipline they need. Undisciplined Yorkshire Terriers can be high strung, snappish, or jealous, and may bite.

Optimal environment Yorkshire Terriers must be kept active, and in fact if they're not given enough exercise, they'll misbehave simply because they need to use up some of that exuberant energy. In addition, Yorkshire Terriers can become easily bored and need lots of attention from their human masters and mistresses. They need a daily walk in part to fulfill their instinctual need to walk. They also need it simply as a means to train and keep them in check to show them that you are the master. Yorkshire Terriers are truly happiest and are the most well-behaved when their owners are stern but loving, with clear boundaries.

They thrive well with apartment living and beyond their daily walk, they don't need a lot of outdoor activity. Very active play, however, is necessary, because they have boundless energy. Although they don't need a yard, they love to romp and play outdoors and will be very happy if they can have an outdoor space so that they can play with abandon. (You can of course give them opportunities to do so even without a yard if you don't have one.)

They behave well in households with small children as long as they receive proper discipline; however, if you don't plan to be a completely hands-on "alpha" owner and may be at risk for spoiling a Yorkie, you should not get one, especially if you have small children. The aforementioned Small Dog Syndrome could make a Yorkie a danger to small children because they have a tendency to bite when they feel aggressive, or have become very spoiled and wish to express their superiority.

Yorkshire Terriers need regular clipping or trimming of their fur coats. For longhaired Yorkies with the typical show coat, they need regular brushing and combing, at least weekly. The topknot is tied back with a ribbon. For Yorkshire Terriers that aren't participating in the show circuit, a regular close shaggy clip is often the preferred cut of choice, which requires little to no care. Yorkies shed little to no hair.

These pets are somewhat prone to health problems typical of the breed, such as bronchitis, early tooth decay, digestive problems, and eye infections. They can also develop herniated disks and problems with the spine, resulting in paralysis of the hindquarters. Because they are so tiny, they're also rather delicate, and falls or rough bumps or jars can cause broken bones. Female Yorkies may have difficulty delivering pups because of their small size, and they may need Caesarean sections to deliver. Yorkies can also be susceptible to skin allergies, and may have congenital difficulties like slipping kneecaps or degeneration of the top of the thigh bone called Legg–Calvé–Perthes syndrome.

In spite of this, though, Yorkies are remarkably resilient, living on average 12 to 15 years. As long as regular veterinary checkups are part of the regimen so that regular necessary care particular to this breed, like teeth cleaning, is performed, you can expect your pet to have a long and healthy life. It is also important to note that because of their delicate digestion, they prefer simple foods like high quality dog foods; they generally don't easily tolerate rich treats (even those specially formulated for dogs) or people food.

Are there any reasons you shouldn't get a Yorkshire terrier as a pet?
Above all, Yorkshire Terriers need time, attention and leadership from their owners. If you can give your little pet a lot of attention, a lot of time, and plenty of gentle, targeted discipline, you'll adore your Yorkie. However, if you won't be spending a lot of time with this little dog, you should probably choose with another breed.

Is a Yorkshire Terrier a good family pet?

The Yorkshire Terrier is a very good family pet, and excellent with children, but is also good for senior citizens, and couples. They are loving, devoted, and very affectionate. The Yorkie is also usually good with other dogs and cats within the family.

Do Yorkshire Terriers bark a lot?

The Yorkshire Terrier is well known for barking a lot, but it isn't universal, and it isn't inevitable. But their excellent hearing means they notice the tiniest noise, and will often respond by barking. But with proper, and early, socialization and training, barking can be minimized.

Can a Yorkshire Terrier be left alone?

Simply put, the Yorkshire Terrier cannot be left alone for too long. Not only do they love to be around their family, they are smart too, and will get both bored and sad when on their own a lot. Ideally a Yorkie should not be left for more than 4-6 hours a day, even when fully grown.

Living Area
The popular Yorkshire can adapt easily to most situations for families with children, single people, senior citizens, and just about anyone. Excellent as apartment dogs, they also enjoy the pleasures of a yard as well. However, they are by no means outdoor dogs and need to be kept inside when not under supervision due to their vulnerable size.
