Learn More About Yorkshire Terriers
Yorkies (Yorkshire Terrier dogs) pack a lot of bark into a small package (yes, they are known to bark a lot!). They typically range in height from 7-9 inches and don’t weigh more than 7 pounds. This puts them on the lower end of the spectrum in terms of weight and size. In fact, the Teacup Yorkie is one of the smallest dog breeds in the world!
Their long hair sets them apart from many other dog breeds. You may not be able to notice this in the pictures of Yorkie puppies for sale above, but full-grown Yorkies have very long straight hair. If well kept, their hair can make them look elegant and beautiful, but they do require a lot of maintenance. Oddly enough, their hair is similar to human hair, which as you know can get tangled into knots easily. Plan to brush your Yorkie’s hair at least once per day to keep it well-kempt and sanitary, or cut its hair for a lower-maintenance approach.
Because of their size and their long flowing hair, some people misjudge Yorkshire Terriers as being a docile, low energy breed of dog. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While they can’t run as fast as some other dogs (their legs are much shorter), they do love running around throughout the day and enjoy occasional fast sprints. When running at their fastest, they typically peak out at 10mph, whereas most other dogs can run as fast as 15mph.
In terms of personality, Yorkies tend to be very bold, independent, and a little feisty. This makes them a great pet for owners who live in a city. If trained well from the time they’re a puppy and up, they are not phased by loud honks and other noises in the city. In other words, unlike some dogs who would lurch and possibly run away at the sound of loud noises, the Yorkie will maintain its composure and stay by your side, if trained properly.
