Fun Facts about Yorkshire Terriers

Small. Fluffy. Adorable.Loveable. Precious. Your Best Friend!

American Kennel Club  has  five fun facts about this tiny breed with a big personality.
Here's what  say:

Fact 1: Loyalty is No. 1 With This Breed

German Shepherds are loyal, we know, and Labs and Golden Retrievers, sure but Yorkies? In fact, Yorkshire Terriers are known for their incredible loyalty to their owners, preferring to stay close by their owner's side at all times.

Fact 2: They Ran With the Rats!

Yorkshire Terriers were actually originally used for a not-so-glamorous purpose catching rats in clothing mills in the nineteenth century.

Fact 3: A Yorkie Was a War Hero

Smoky the Yorkshire Terrier was quite the hero during World War II. The little fluff ball helped save the lives of soldiers during the war by carrying communications wires through an underground tunnel.

Fact 4: They Didn't Become Yorkshire Terriers Until 1870

The Yorkie made its debut in England in 1861 as a "broken-haired Scotch Terrier." It wasn't until 1870, when a reporter stated, "they ought no longer to be called Scotch Terriers, but Yorkshire Terriers, for having been so improved here," that the name Yorkshire Terrier actually stuck.

Fact 5: Their Grouping Doesn't Become Their Personality

Don't be fooled because the Yorkie is part of the Toy Group this breed is by nature very brave, determined and energetic. They have big personalities and make great family pets.

Yorkshire Terrier Haircuts

Trixie... before and after - she got trimmed up for summer. I like her  hair long, it just takes longer to dry her on bath day.  No matter what length, we all think OUR yorkie, is the cutest little dog around, right?!
