A Yorkshire Terrier, or a “Yorkie” as they are sometimes referred to, are small, lively and affectionate dogs.
Though they may be tiny, by their nature they were very curious, brave and determined pets. Because of this trait, before they were pets, they were frequently used to catch rats by mill owners.
Yorkshire Terrier are small dogs and usually grow to have a height of 7-8 inches tall and a weight of less than 10 pounds, usually around 7-8 pounds. Their life expectancy is between 11-15 years.
These traits usually make this a very popular dog breed for new pet owners who want to cuddle their dog.
Yorkies are active dogs and enjoy a satisfying walk.
