HIS TEMPERMENT

The Yorkshire Terrier is feisty, alert, inquisitive, energetic, determined, brave, bossy, scrappy and boisterous.

But he can also be very sweet. He can be described as a little dog with a big personality! He's one of the most popular breeds in North America.

He craves close physical contact and affection and will follow you around the home like a shadow. His prey-drive is high and he will chase any little creature that scurries by him.

He gets along well with strangers but he can be aggressive with other dogs. He's very affectionate and loves to cuddle and sit on your lap.

The Yorkshire Terrier is undoubtedly an indoor pet and rightly so, considering some of its basic characteristics.

Also called a yorkie it has a small, light body structure and is surely very easy to carry and barely takes up any space.

Despite having a hairy coat, the yorkie hardly ever sheds, making it a true blessing for those of us allergic to dog hair.

Moreover, the dog is swift, alert and yet graceful, and is sure to inform you of just about any intruder.

If you do not have a big house or a very spacious backyard, you can still keep a yorkie, for this is one breed that needs hardly any exercise.

Also, the Yorkshire Terrier is above all a fairly well behaved, peaceful dog, tolerant of other pets around them and it is precisely all these qualities that make a yorkie one of the best loved indoor pets.
