Yorkshire Terrier Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA: Yorkie
Breed Group: Toy Group Height Male: 6-7 inches (15-17½cm.)
Breed Size: Small Height Female: 6-7 inches (15-17½cm.)
Breed Origin: Great Britain Weight: 7 pounds (3.2kg.)
In appearance, the Yorkie is a neat, compact and well proportioned little dog with plenty of self-confidence with his head held high and air of self-importance. His coat is a distinctive characteristic of the breed with a glossy, fine and silky texture. The coat on the body is long and perfectly straight. Puppies are born black and tan and are generally darker in body colour until they mature. In adult dogs, the coat is a dark steel-blue with rich tan colour on the head, legs, chest and breeches.

Although small, the Yorkshire Terrier is spirited and alert, displaying his terrier ancestry. The Yorkie is independent yet a very devoted companion; and, despite his small size, he is always more than willing to protect his family. He is playful, inquisitive, intelligent, friendly and willing to please.

The Yorkie's active nature makes him ideal for participating in several dog sports and activities, including: Obedience, Agility, Flyball, Frisbee, Tracking, and Earthdog Trials. He is also commonly seen working as a Therapy Dog.

Early Yorkshire Terriers were developed in the North of England during the mid-19th century to dispatch rats in coal mines and cotton mills. They were also used by miners in rat-killing contests. It should be noted, however, that Yorkies at that time were about twice the size they are today. The Yorkie of today is one of the most glamorous and popular toy breeds. In Canada, the Yorkshire Terrier is the 6th most registered breed for 2005 and the most registered Toy breed, based on Canadian Kennel Club registrations.
The parents of the Yorkshire Terrier puppy should have OFA certificates. If you are considering a Yorkshire Terrier puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances
