The adorable Yorkshire Terrier

You’re at the pet shelter trying to decide on what pet to adopt. You’re staring at an adorable Yorkshire Terrier puppy. His little brown eyes, floppy ears and button nose warm your heart and you’re now ready to sign the adoption papers. There are certain things that you should know about Yorkshire Terriers. They were first bred in the 1800’s for the purpose of catching mice and rats. These dogs are very active and need lots of exercise. It’s also a good idea to have them properly trained at an early age. If not, they can be disobedient. Yorkshire Terriers are great dogs for apartment living. They are small and with their loud bark, make good watchdogs. They get along well with children who play gently with them. They can snap if frightened or are treated rough by a child.

Now that you’re aware of some of the characteristics of a Yorkie, do you still want to adopt him?  Sure you do, go ahead and sign those papers!

Remember, your pets count!
