The Teacup Yorkie, British born and raised, is a small dog with a great attitude. Although a toy race, the way Yorkies is worn seems to reflect the fact that this brave little Terrier apparently ignores its small size. A Teacup Yorkie tends to make some of the most lovable and affectionate companions you could hope to possess. They are typically feisty, delicious, and just malicious enough to be considered cute. However, the breed standard speaks of their territorial nature. Yorkies are terriers after all, and will use their protective instincts with valor if they feel their family or territory is threatened. It is up to the owner to channel his energy in a positive direction through early training and socialization. Their keen sense of hearing, their courage and their desire to eliminate intruders make them a good watchdog. However, due to the small size of the breed, the Yorkie moved away from nothing but an early warning system. The Yorkies are not naturally good with children and should only be left with supervision.

What are Yorkshire Terriers Like?
Yorkies, they are small, long-haired breed of dogs in a solid and erect body frame
The Yorskhire Terrier is one of the most popular breeds of dogs in the world and is known for their overriding personality, and versatility.
This breed makes a highly-spirited, yet loving companion ideal for families and homes.
Although some can get really stubborn, Yorkshire Terriers can be very obedient if given proper training and handling.
They can learn quickly and with great passion.
Their tails are of medium length, while their coat looks shiny that hangs straight and long all over face and body.
The color of their coat varies from blue, tan, white, and brown.
Yorkshire Terrier Care
Yorkies are easily adaptable to all surroundings, travel well and make suitable pets for many homes. Due to their small size, they require limited exercise, but need daily interaction with their people. Their long coat requires regular brushing.
nutrition & FEEDING
Depending on the size of your dog as an adult you are going to want to feed them a formula that will cater to their unique digestive needs through the various phases of their life. Many dog food companies have breed-specific formulas for small, medium, large and giant breeds.
The Yorkie is a small breed and has a lifespan of 12 to 15 years. What you feed your dog is an individual choice, but working with your veterinarian and/or breeder will be the best way to determine frequency of meals as a puppy and the best adult diet to increase his longevity. Clean, fresh water should be available at all times.
coat & GROOMING
A Yorkshire Terrier with trailing tresses is one of the most eye-catching of dogs. It’s also a lot of work. Many people elect to keep their Yorkshires trimmed to a manageable length.
Beyond regular weekly grooming, the occasional bath will keep them clean and looking their best. Grooming can be a wonderful bonding experience for you and your pet. Their strong fast-growing nails should be trimmed regularly with a nail clipper or grinder to avoid overgrowth, splitting and cracking. Their ears should be checked regularly to avoid a buildup of wax and debris which can result in an infection. Teeth should be brushed regularly.
energy & EXERCISE
The Yorkie is very agile and has a very athletic build and require regular exercise to maintain good health.
Nicknamed the “tomboy toy,” Yorkies are bundles of energy and enthusiasm. They get along well with other dogs, but can be loners, choosing to investigate sights, sounds, and smells over romping around at the park. Yorkies are incredibly loyal to their owners and prefer to stay close by their side—but don’t mistake this for a need to be pampered.
Their tendency to bark makes them reliable watchdogs, and their gentle nature makes them a good fit for families with children.
nutrition & FEEDING
Like all breeds there may be some health issues, like eye disease and patellar luxation.
Some dogs may be faced with these health challenges in their lives, but the majority of Yorkshire Terriers are healthy dogs.
Working with a responsible breeder, those wishing to own a Yorkie can gain the education they need to know about specific health concerns within the breed.
Good breeders utilize genetic testing of their breeding stock to reduce the likelihood of disease in their puppies.
