The Yorkshire terrier is by far one of thee most popular dogs in the US. With their unique personality and distinctively small size, it’s no wonder that they are so popular. The yorkie was initially thought to be used to catch rats in mills in early years.
Yorkshire terrier dogs are very affectionate towards their owners. They love nothing more than to always be by your side. As much as they love attention, they are also very curious animals and this tends to land them in big trouble. Leaving your shoe on the floor is never a good idea around a yorkie. The yorkie is also very weary of strangers. They are highly alert dogs and will bark at any strange noise that they hear. Because they are so weary of strangers, they tend to be very possessive of their owners when a new pet is brought home. It is so important to have a yorkie that has been socialised correctly when they are born, to avoid any aggressive or scared behaviour towards new animals.
If you have really young children in your home, it is not recommended to have this delicate darling around them. Yorkshire terriers make great companions and if you want a cuddle buddy then the yorkie is bound to be a great choice.
