These long haired jewels are Yorkshire Terriers, commonly called “Yorkies”. They have lots of personality and are very energetic. Although, AKC has them as a member of the Toy Group, they maintain the terrier nature being brave, determined and curious.
Yorkies are among the top 10 most popular dogs in America, according to the AKC. Their long, tan and blue coats are very silky and do require a lot of maintenance to keep them from getting tangled. Some owners opt for the “Teddy Bear” groom as a maintenance hair cut. They tolerate having their hair put in bows and children dressing them in clothes.
