Is a Yorkie the right puppy for you?
If you are considering buying a Yorkie puppy, you should research first so that you are sure that the Yorkie is indeed the right one for you and your family. One of the best things about getting a purebred puppy is that it is predictable, meaning that you could assume how big your dog will be, the necessary care requirements, and the temperament. There are a lot of factors to consider once picking out a Yorkie, namely: personality, temperament, and energy levels. You should also consider your time, as you will be spending a lot of time with your new companion. If you have children or other animals at home, you should also consider them when picking out a dog breed.
Yorkies, or Yorkshire Terriers, were named after the English city where they originally came from. They were used even way back in the 1900s in clothing mills in order to catch vermin that roamed around. In the earlier times, the Yorkie originally belonged to the working class, specifically among the weavers. Some comments even mentioned that the fine and silky coats of this breed was the product of the looms that the weavers used. But later on, this breed left the working class and finally became companions to the elite classes of the European society. To date, this dog breed is pegged as one of the most popular breeds in homes.
Appearance of the Yorkie
As presented by the American Kennel Club, long-haired toy Yorkies have a blue and tan coat that naturally parts on the face and from the base of the head (skull) up to the end of the tail. The coat hangs evenly and is quite straight down the sides of the body. The body of the Yorkie is well-proportioned and compact. The Yorkie carries itself in a confident manner, making it appear self-important and energetic.
The forelegs of a Yorkie should be straight, with no jutting elbows. The hind legs, when viewed from behind, should be straight, but the stifles are bent moderately when in side view. The quality, quantity, and texture of the coat are of utmost importance. The hair is fine, glossy, and silky and should be perfectly straight. It could be trimmed to floor length so that the Yorkie could move easier and the appearance will be neater. The hair located on the tips of the ears should be trimmed.
Yorkie puppies, when born, are black and tan. They are normally born darker when it comes to body color, with signs of intermingling black hair in the tan part until they grow up. It is only when they become adults does the color of the hair on the body and the richness of the tan found on the head and legs are checked. For the blue part, it should be a dark steel-blue and not a silver-blue one. It should not be mixed with bronzy, black, or fawn hairs. For the tan part, all should be darker at the roots and lighter at the tips. There should be no black or sooty hair mixed with any of the tan hairs.
