Favorite Yorkshire Terrier Comments

Yorkshire Terriers as a breed are very intelligent, beautiful little dogs. They make ideal companions for people in smaller homes, and travel well. They will fit in easily to a family with children, or happily be the "only child". Males are always cheerful, accept other animals well, and are happy, making them hard to resist. Females are also great companions, although sometimes less outgoing and playful. With their hypoallergenic silky coat,they require less grooming than you would think.
