Yorkshire Terrier PictureStatistics

Latin Name: Canis lupus familiaris
Origin: United Kingdom
Average Weight: 5 - 7 lbs
Nicknames: Yorkie


The Yorkshire Terrier is a small but confident dog, id barely more then 7 lbs at most, and is considered a 'toy' dog by most Kennel Clubs. It holds itself upright most of the time, and always looks cheerful. Their long coat is parted down the middle, and is tan and dark blue, almost black, coloured. These small dogs must be combed and groomed frequently, as their long hair will grow fairly quickly.

Yorkshire Terriers are an intelligent dog as well. While normally docile, the males of their breed are very territorial at times. While being classified as a toy, their territorial nature is due to being of Terrier decent.
