Dog Breed of the Day: The Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkshire_Terrier_13

From Dogbreedinfo: The Yorkshire Terrier is a small, toy-sized dog. The small head is rather flat on the top, with a medium-sized muzzle. The teeth meet in a scissors or level bite. The nose is black. The medium-sized eyes are dark with dark eye rims. All four legs are straight when viewed from the front. The round feet have black toenails. The tail is customarily docked to a medium length and carried somewhat higher than the back. The long, glossy coat is fine and silky and falls straight down on either side. The coat comes in a steel blue and tan color. The body and tail are blue and the rest of the dog is tan. Puppies are brown, black and tan. The hair on the head is so abundant that it is almost always necessary to gather it in a band to keep from going into the dog’s food bowl and to give the animal maximum visibility. Yorkshire Terriers seem oblivious of their small size. They are very eager for adventure. This little dog is highly energetic, brave, loyal and clever. With owners who take the time to understand how to treat a small dog, the Yorkie is a wonderful companion! It is affectionate with its master, but if humans are not this dog’s pack leader, it can become suspicious of strangers and aggressive to strange dogs and small animals.

If any if you out there own a Yorkshire Terrier be sure to write in your experiences and any tips you might have for our audience should they be thinking about buying or adopting one.   Since we can’t get enough of this cute breed we decided to come up with a photo gallery of 20 Yorkie puppies that we know you’ll love too.  Be sure to click “next” beneath each photo to see them all.  Enjoy the gallery!
