The Yorkshire Terrier, or “Yorkie”, is a small breed of dog in the toy category. They weigh between five to seven pounds on average. They have long coats that are parted down the middle. Most Yorkies are blue and tan in color but some are black and gray. Their hair is soft and fine. It is believed that Yorkshire Terriers were created sometime after the Industrial Revolution. Scottish migrant workers came to in England in search of employment and with them came their Scottish Terriers. Scottish Terriers and English Terriers cross-bred and with that came a new breed of terrier.
In 1870 the Yorkshire Terrier was named after the county of Yorkshire in England. Yorkshire Terriers are one of the world’s most popular breeds of dog. Based on 2005 registration the Yorkie is the third most popular breed in the United States. Also Known As

Males tend to be territorial and often do not realize how small they are. It is not uncommon for a threatened Yorkie to attack a much larger animal. Yorkshire Terriors are good with children. The owner should warn children not to poke or harrass their Yorkie as they can nip if irritated. They can be difficult to train due to stubborness. Yorkies, although bred as companion dogs, will on occasion hunt rodents. Health Problems
Yorkshire Terrier are prone to certain disorders and health problems. The most common problem associated with Yorkies are cataracts. Trachea collapse is also very common in the breed.
