The Yorkshire Terrier has in the last few years proved
itself statistically to be one of the most popular of the toy breeds.
Annual dog statistics from KUSA for 2010:
Yorkshire Terrier - 6 825;
Retriever (Labrador) - 2 618;
Bulldogs - 1 461, and
Retriever (Golden) - 1 256
This tiny dog with engaging personality and dauntless
courage has endeared himself to pet lovers everywhere. His qualities as
a companion are unsurpassed for he is possessed of great intelligence,
the characteristic fearless and tenacity of a dog many times his size.
He has the obvious practical advantage of diminutive size, making him
the most obvious choice of a pet in this era of condensed living
The Yorkies’ appetite for long
tireless walks, equaled by the alternative
ability to exercise himself in a somewhat reduced space, makes him
ideally suited to anywhere from urban to country living and he is thus
adaptable to all lifestyles.
The aristocratic appearance of the Yorkshire Terrier is
a tribute to the dedication of breeders who have taken the breed from
its humble beginnings and produced the eye-catching dog of today. It
should be remembered, however, that this lustrous coat can and will
look its best only with constant grooming and attention from the owner,
a point which should be noted carefully by you, the prospective buyer.
The pet owner who has neither the time nor the
inclination to give his/her Yorkie the
necessary daily brushing would be well advised to trim the coat to a
manageable length and maintain it this way, as the Yorkie looks and feels happier with short carefree clip than a long,
bedraggled and uncared for coat.
The current worldwide popularity of the Yorkshire
Terrier, with its connotation of glamour and success, makes it
difficult to believe in the very humble origins of the breed. It was in
the coal mines, textile mills and homes of working men in Great Britain
that this delightful little dog first became established.
Much of the appeal of the Yorkshire Terrier lies in its
diminutive size and consequently it has a surprisingly small appetite.
It is essential, therefore, that whatever food
is offered should be as well balanced and wholesome as possible. Royal Canin has developed a breed specific food for Yorkies.
A Yorkshire Terrier from the coal mines of Great Britain, or in your home with its ability to be
suited to anywhere from urban to country living and adaptable to your
lifestyle can make a Yorkshire Terrier a pet lovers dream come true.
