Yorkshire terriers are beautiful, protective, loyal, compact, adaptable, and intelligent. Barky? Yes. But provide unconditional love.
Despite their small size, the Yorkshire terrier has a big dog attitude. Yorkies have long, silky fur that’s a unique steel blue combined with a golden tan.
Although no dog is 100% hypoallergenic, non-shedding dogs produce less dander, which is the true culprit in causing pet allergies for humans.
Common Yorkshire terrier health problems: Bad knees, skin allergies, retinal dysplasia, collapsed tracheas and more.
Toy breeds are more prone to injury and illness due to their size and inbreeding. They often have breathing, stomach, skin and bone and joint issues.
