      History: Developed in Victorian times in Yorkshire, England, this dog was created from the Manchester terrier, Skye terrier, Maltese, and other breeds as a ratter. The Yorkshire Terrier was introduced to the United States in 1878. The compact size, sweet expression, and cheerful character of this dog had a wide appeal, and the "Yorkie" is now the most popular breed of toy dogs.
        Body: Compact and well balanced, the Yorkshire Terrer has a back with level top line; a small head with a rather flat crown; small V-shaped erect ears; sparkling, medium-sized dark eyes with black rims; a black nose; and a tail that is docked to medium length. The glossy, acundant coat, which lies close to the body, is straight and reaches the ground. It is parted from head to tail. The coat color is steel blue on the cack and tail, gold on the head, ches, and feet.

        Character:  The Yorkie is very affectionate and loves its master's company; left alone in the house, however, it might destroy things out of loneliness. This dog is best for someone who wants a constant companion. Handled with care, it is good with children and other animals. Intelligent, quick to learn, and very trainable, the Yorkie makes a good guard dog despite its size.

        Care: If brushed daily and groomed reguarly by a professional, the coat will stay in good condition. The long topknot is usually tied with a ribbon on the top of the head. Shampoo this dog carefullly, making sure that it doesn't get cold, and dry it speedily with a hair drier.

        Exercise: The Yorkshire Terrier needs no special exercise as long as it is free indoors. It is susceptible to cold and bad weather.

    Puppies: Usually there are three puppies in a litter. If the mother is small, she might have great difficulty in delivering. Newborns are bllack, with tan on the eyebrows, tips of jaws, chest, and feet. They mature in two years.
