Yorkie Puppies for Sale in Ohio
The Yorkshire terrier — affectionately referred to as the Yorkie — is a purebred dog recognized by the American Kennel Club. These dogs are part of the toy group and are very small, coming in at around 5 to 7 pounds and just 7 to 8 inches tall. They have long, luxurious coats that require either daily brushing (and sometimes a hair bow or two), or some owners choose to have them shaved for easier maintenance. Traditional coat coloring is a tan head and front with a darker, grayish body.
Yorkies were originally bred to hunt rats, which means they have a strong prey drive and a higher activity level than their small size would let on. They need a short daily walk, about 30 minutes, to get their energy out, and they also enjoy short obedience or trick training sessions spread throughout the day. Yorkies are accomplished watchdogs and will let you know when someone new is around, but they may need a little extra training to learn when barking is appropriate. These dogs generally do better with adults and the elderly than they do with small children but can live comfortably in almost any space with the right owner.
