The Yorkshire Terrier might not be
for you if you require a very
obedient companion, because this dignified, playful, feisty, sweet little
one cannot be made to do anything
he makes up his mind not to do!
Some yorkies take to correction
better than others, but it usually
works out best if you use positive training methods.
I’m a purebred, registered AKC Yorkshire Terrier.
I am a very devoted to my family but I can be a but strong willed. I must say my looks and personality will make up for any attitude I may have.
I may be small but I will fill your heart, your home and I will be there on your lap or by your side in YOUR bed making sure you have a smile and feel the LOVE!
To err is human; to forgive, canine.

This portable pooch is one of the most popular breeds according to the AKC registration statistics.
The Yorkshire Terrier breed, affectionately known as "Yorkies", has long been a favorite pet of Americans and Europeans for their tiny toy size, smart personalities and adorable expression. Though members of the Toy Group, they are terriers by nature and are brave, determined, investigative and energetic.
Although the Yorkie is a small toy breed best known for their beautiful coat and spunky confident character, there are many wonderful characteristics that make this little dog so popular. The Yorkie is fearless as a watch dog. He has a great sense of hearing and can usually hear someone coming long before they get to the door. However, they are not prone to being a yippy little dog that barks for no reason.
Of all the long-coated breeds the Yorkie is the easiest to care for because they have a single coat of silken texture (no undercoat). Yorkies do not shed, the coat is much like human hair. You will find a few hairs in their brush, much like your own hair. If kept indoors and bathed weekly, Yorkies should not bother allergy suffers. If you are not interested in the long coat, they are just as adorable with cute short and sassy haircuts.
They are ideal pets for people living in smaller spaces, they travel well and love attention.
The Genetics of the rare and unusual chocolate color is simply the doubling of the recessive red gene that Yorkies carry. This same color is found in many other breeds: Dobermans, Labradors and Daschunds to name a few.
The Chocolate color, at this time is not listed on the color choices on the registration form and not considered an AKC standard. This could change to a standard color with AKC in the future. The AKC registration color is called "Liver and Tan". Registration in will be completed and the correct color assigned by AKC with the submission of 3 photos (front and both sides).
