Yorkshire Terrier

The Yorkshire Terrier, originally known as the Broken-Haired Scotch Terrier, is a breed of small dog, one of many toy dog breeds. Yorkshire terriers can be very small, usually weighing between 5 and 7 lb (2.5 to 3.5 kg). Yorkshire breeds seems oblivious of its small size but they are highly energetic and love adventure and trouble.


The Yorkshire Terrier, though a toy breed, still retains much of its Terrier ancestry in terms of personality. Though personalities differ from dog to dog, yorkshire terriers are generally intelligent, independent, lively, fearless and spunky. Yorkshires, especially males, are very territorial and will often attack much larger dogs despite their extreme size disadvantage.

Yorkshire terriers focus entirely on their owner and are extremely affectionate. The Yorkshire Terrier is demanding and requires more human companionship and attention than any other breed. They are excellent watchdog, defending its territory in no uncertain manner.

Yorkshire Terriers tend to be more difficult to train than some of their canine cousins; however, this difficulty is considered to be a result of the breed's characteristic prey drive rather than any major deficiency of intelligence as yorkshire terriers were bred to work without human intervention.

Yorkshire terrier should be that of a long-haired toy terrier whose blue and tan coat is parted on the face and from the base of the skull to the end of the tail and hangs evenly and quite straight down each side of body. The body is neat, compact and well proportioned. The yorkshire terrier's high head carriage and confident manner should give the appearance of vigor and self-importance.

12-15 years..

Most believe that the Yorkshire Terrier is the product of commingling Scottish and English terriers when many Scots were displaced by the Industrial Revolution and settled in England . Though pedigrees are not available for the first Yorkshire Terrier ancestors, several breeds have been suggested, including the Old English Black and Tan, which is also considered the ancestor for the Welsh Terrier and the Manchester Terrier, the Waterside Terrier, the Clydesdale Terrier, and the Paisley Terrier. The Scottish influence, brought in by the weavers during the industrial revolution, are the same ancestors as the Scottish Terrier, West Highland White Terrier, and Cairn Terrier (all once one breed), as well as the Skye Terrier. Many have suggested that at some time the Maltese, an old breed from Malta , may be in the background of the history of the yorkshire terrier as well.

The original Yorkshire Terrier, known as the "Broken-Haired Scotch Terrier" was a 12-to-14 pound dog with wire hair whose intended purpose was the catching of rats and other vermin that lived in small spaces.

In 1870, the breed was renamed the Yorkshire Terrier, after the county of Yorkshire England where the breed is believed to have originated. The father of the breed is considered to be Huddersfield Ben, who was born in 1865 and died in 1871 from a carriage accident, the inbred offspring of a mother and son. Huddersfield Ben was bred by Mr. W. Eastwood Huddersfield. A multiple champion, Huddersfield Ben set the foundation for what would develop into the modern Yorkshire Terrier.
