All About the Yorkie
The Yorkshire Terrier, or Yorkie, is named after the region where the breed originated – the historic Yorkshire region of northern England. The ancestor of the modern-day Yorkie was the Waterside Terrier, a small dog with a bluish-gray longish coat that was brought to England by weavers emigrating from Scotland in the mid-1800s. The terrier was initially used as a rat catcher in textile factories, but eventually became a companion dog to some of Europe's most prominent families.
The Yorkie was originally known as a broken haired Scotch terrier before it was given its present name after its appearance at a dog show in Westmorland County. The American Kennel Club officially recognized the Yorkie as a breed in 1885, and in 1951 the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America was established. As of 2011, Yorkshire Terriers were recognized as the 5th most popular breed in the US.
According to the American Kennel Club, Yorkshire Terriers should weigh no more than seven pounds and should have glossy coats with fine, silky hair that is parted all the way down the center. Acceptable colors for purebreds are dark-steel blue and tan, which should not be intermingled with other colors such as black and fawn. Combinations of colors other than tan and blue are not accepted by the AKC. In addition, the Yorkie's head should be small and somewhat flat on top while the body is compact and well proportioned.
In terms of temperament, the Yorkie is a curious and brave by nature, and easily adaptable to new surroundings. Their small size makes them good pets for families living in condominiums of apartments, and they do not need much exercise. However, they need to have daily contact with their human family, and their long coats need regular brushing.
