Yorkshire Terrier

Country of Origin: Scotland
We also have Yorkshire Terrier pictures.

Despite its name the Yorkshire Terrier is classified as a toy dog by most of the major dog clubs. They are so small that they rarely exceed a weight of 7 pounds, even when full grown. The Labrador Retriever is the only dog in the United States that is more popular than the Yorkshire Terrier. These dogs are very athletic in nature. Despite their small body they are actually quite muscular which aids in their active lifestyle.

Yorkshire Terriers only have a single coat. Their hair continues to grow as opposed to regularly shedding which is good for dog owners who have allergies. Dander which is present in the coats of most dogs is absent for the most part in the coats of Yorkshire Terriers. This absence of dander helps alleviate the foul odor that most dogs have when they are wet.
