A NEW ARRIVAL!
We're getting a new Yorkie in our family! After much hunting this weekend, I think we have found a very nice male to bring into our home!
There is much debate about Male Yorkies vs. Female Yorkies an I found this good information online....let me know if you agree....
Over at Elvis Yorkies, they said, " Many people feel that female yorkies make better pets than male yorkies. This conclusion is usually based upon inaccurate information. In discussing these differences we will be speaking in terms of generalizations. These generalizations of female and male yorkies traits are like that of generalizations of female and male human traits. For every generalization there are always exceptions.
Female yorkies are sweeter and more affectionate that male yorkies.
Our experience is that male yorkies are usually more affectionate, exuberant, and attentive as compared to females. They seek your attention and are very attached to their people. They also tend to be more steadfast, reliable, and less moody. They are more outgoing, more accepting of other pets, and take quicker to children. When we have company we invariably have to put the females in another room until the company leaves. The female may be less likely to wage a dominance battle with you, but she can be cunning and resourceful in getting her own way. She is much more prone to mood swings. Most females will usually come to you for attention, but as soon as she has had enough, she will move away. Males are always waiting for your attention and close by.
Female yorkies are more docile as compared to male yorkies.
In the dog pack framework, females usually rule the roost. Therefore they determine pecking order, and compete to maintain and/or alter that order. The females are, as a result, more independent, stubborn, and territorial than their male counterparts. Most fights will usually break out between two females.
Female yorkies are easier to train than male yorkies.
Because female yorkies are, more independent, stubborn, territorial and male yorkies are easily motivated by praise, and are very eager to please, training a male can be easier than training a female. However, males can be easily distracted during training, as they just want to get to playtime!"
