In the 1800s, Yorkies made their way over to America with their owners, where this breed became incredibly popular. American's loved Yorkies because of their agility and small size, making them perfect for keeping pests and rodents out of their homes and factories.  The Yorkshire Terrier remains one of the Top 10 breeds of the American Kennel Club.

They are relatively easy to train compared to most other breeds and are quite intelligent. While they are often used as lap dogs, Yorkies are actually quite busy and enjoy being useful. Training should begin early, since sometimes they can be territorial, and may get aggressive with other dogs. It is almost as if they do not recognize just how small they really are. Yorkies can be incredibly compassionate, which is why many people choose them for emotional service animals.

Adding Pets To Your Family

When I was growing up, I had a dog that I absolutely adored. We did everything together. From running and playing outside to spending time together in the house, she really felt like a friend who loved and cared about me. Unfortunately, she passed on when she was about ten years old, and it was really difficult for me. I realized that I wanted to get a new dog after that, so I started looking for a business that could help. I started going from pet store to vet clinic to see if anyone had an animal that needed a home, and I found an animal that I really loved. Check out this blog for great information on pet ownership.
