Learn About The Teacup Yorkie
The miniature yorkshire terrier, nicknamed the teacup yorkie
, seems quite full of himself, and why not? With his long silky coat and perky topknot, the Yorkshire Terrier is one of the most glamorous representatives of the dog world, sure to attract attention wherever he goes. Because he’s so small he often travels in style — in special dog purses toted around by his adoring owner.
The long steel-blue and tan coat may be the teacup yorkies crowning glory, but it’s his personality that truly endears him to his family. Oblivious to his small size (weighing in at no more than seven pounds), the teacup yorkie terrier is a big dog in a small body, always on the lookout for adventure and maybe even a bit of trouble.
miniature yorkshire terriers are affectionate towards their people as one would expect from a companion dog, but true to their terrier heritage, they’re sometimes suspicious of strangers, and will bark at strange sounds and intruders. In consideration of your neighbors, it’s important to tone down their yappiness and teach them when and when not to bark.
