The Yorkshire Terrier Has A Playful Demeanor

Jun 26, 2008
The Yorkie puppy, or Yorkshire Terrier puppy, are a toy breed of dog that have long hair and which are of a very playful nature while also sporting a coat of blue and tan in color. In fact, when you first get yourself a Yorkie puppy, you will be amazed at how small it is and it also how little it weighs also. Yorkshire Terrier puppies are the second most sought after of the major dog breeds after the Labrador Retriever, if available information on registrations from the American Kennel Club is to be believed.

Normally, fully grown Yorkshire Terriers won't grow to more than six to seven inches in height and also won't weigh more than seven pounds. Though even when they are puppies, they will still sport a long as well as fine and silky coat. Yorkshire Terrier puppies are highly active, though not very good at learning. However, they are energetic as well as loyal and brave, and in addition, they are not well suited for being guard dogs, though they are better at being watch dogs and the average Yorkie puppies can be expected to live up to a ripe old age of between twelve and fifteen years.

In appearance, the Yorkie puppy is rather compact and also athletically built which allows this breed to remain active throughout its life and it usually holds both tail and head high, while showing a great deal of confidence as well. In their gait, Yorkshire Terrier puppies are generally free as well as jaunty and their stance is upright while it is not frail or even fragile as you may have expected when thinking about its toy size.

Yorkie puppies come with a long hair though without an undercoat and thus they do not shed quite as much as would be expected from long haired breeds. In addition, Yorkshire Terrier puppies will not carry much dander on their coat and thus don't usually smell foul. Also, their hair does not fall out very often and in fact will grow non-stop unless it falls out because of brushing or breaking. They also usually will have coats that are black and tan with the black hair mixing with the tan.

To be able to pick the right Yorkie puppies, you need to look at certain features including that they have good quality coat color as well as good texture of the coat, and their hair should exude gloss and look fine as well as silky.

However, not all good Yorkie puppies show these traits and some will show rather too fine and woolly coats, which makes their appearance a bit different as compared to the better Yorkshire Terrier puppies.

Nevertheless, a sure sign that your Yorkie puppy is a suitable one is when you notice that their lips, nose and also paw-pads, eye-rims and nails have a dark pigmentation.

Still, you can be sure that you have got a good Yorkshire Terrier puppy when it possesses darkly pigmented nose, lips and also paw-pads, eye-rims and even nails. In addition, a sign of good Yorkie puppies is when you notice that their hair is absolutely straight which will need a lot of maintenance work to keep in good order.
