Welcome to our home!

 

Yorkies may be little, but of course they have big personalities. This petite and down-to-earth beauty loves her family and is always up for adventure, making her the perfect travel companion!
Itís hard to envision the Yorkshire Terrier as a blue-collar dog, but she was once in fact a working breed! Yorkies were first bred for use as ratters in mine shafts and clothing mills in Northern England.

 

They made their way to North America in the 1870s and were acknowledged by the AKC in 1885. They have adjusted to a more laidback lifestyle in todayís world and particularly enjoy spending time indoors with their families. Despite their comfort indoors though,

 

Yorkies are active dogs and still need at least a daily walk. Yorkshire Terriers are not big shedders but their silky coats do need regular brushing and grooming. The Yorkie is a generally healthy breed with an average lifespan of 13-15 years.
