The Yorkshire Terrier is one of the most instantly recognisable dog breeds in the UK and one of the most popular dogs in the world. It is known universally as the Yorkie.
The Yorkshire Terrier often lives between 13 - 16 years
The Yorkshire Terrier tends to cost in the region of £700 (around £500 for a non-KC registered variety), so if you see Yorkshire Terrier puppies for sale in a newspaper or online do keep this price in mind.
A Yorkshire Terrier is usually around 20cm in height and generally weighs in at around 3.2kg.
Yorkshire Terriers are very easy to train with an exceptional intelligence to match but require only a moderate amount of exercise to stay satisfied. They do not like being alone even for short periods of time.
Every dog while in a public place should wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on the collar or on a plate or badge attached to it.
