One thing is for absolute certain: we all LOVE Yorkshire Terriers—and for good reason!
If you’re a Yorkie owner, you just get it; no other breed can compare! And as if you needed more validation that choosing to purchase a Yorkie puppy was the best decision you’ve ever made, I’ve got you covered.Let’s break down just a few things that make Yorkshire Terriers the smartest, cutest, and most irresistible breed in the eyes of their owner!
Yorkies are full of attitude
Don’t let the size fool you. Even though our Yorkshire Terriers puppies will probably max out at roughly seven pounds fully grown, these little guys are fierce and feisty! I’m not exactly sure how so much personality can fit into such a small package, but it certainly makes life with a Yorkie all the more interesting!
Yorkies love to be active
It doesn’t take much to ensure a Yorkshire Terrier gets enough exercise (they are tiny after all!) but they certainly need it. These little balls of energy go crazy when allowed to run free in your backyard (zoomies, anyone?) and will keep you active, as well, with short walks throughout the day.
Yorkies are happy, yappy dogs
OK yes, Yorkshire Terriers have a reputation for being a bit yappy, but they’re so cute and tiny that it’s more adorable than anything else. Yorkie owners would likely all agree that the high-pitched bark of their favorite companion is just a sweet little way of saying hello—a language of love, if you will. Plus, the “notice me” yapping of a Yorkshire Terrier makes for an excellent guard dog.
Yorkies are incredibly smart
Yorkies are very loyal and LOVE to please their owners, which makes them very responsive to treat and praise-based training. Once they realize the connection between doing what you ask and receiving lots of positive attention, they’ll be quick to master many commands.
Yorkies are VERY fashion-forward
It doesn’t matter what you put them in, no other breed can accessorize like a Yorkshire Terrier. With their diva attitude in mind, it was a no brainer for me to start making Diva Dresses for Yorkies (and their owners) who live for a bit of glamour! Custom made with sizes ranging from XXXS to Large, these dresses allow Yorkie owners to spoil their pups like true princesses!
