TINY MICRO YORKIE PUPPIES INFORMATION.
The Yorkshire Terrier, most commonly known as the Yorkie, originates from Yorkshire, a rugged region of Northern England. They were originally bred to hunt rats and rodents in the textile mills and coal mines back in the 1870's. The Yorkie was introduced to America in 1872, and as Americans embraced Victorian customs, they too embraced the Yorkie. Today, the Yorkshire Terrier is the second most popular breed in the United States. The Yorkie is a brave little dog, highly energetic and eager for adventure. They are demanding and require lots of human attention! While they may be suspicious of strangers, they are very affectionate with members of their own family. This toy breed makes for an excellent watchdog, and defends its territory. Due to their true terrier heritage, Yorkies can be aggressive toward strange dogs and smaller animals, so they must be socialized at an early age. Unaware of their small size, a Yorkie may even challenge larger, tougher dogs. Unfortunately, their bold nature and self confidence may get them into trouble, as small dogs can be seriously injured, so Yorkies do not make suitable pets for very young children. While this breed can be a bit stubborn, they are generally smart and responsive to commands, making them easy to train. The Yorkie sheds little to no hair and requires regular grooming and trimming of their long, silky coat. Yorkies known as "teacups" are just Yorkshire Terriers who fall into a small size category of 4 lbs. or less fully grown.
