Yorkshire Terrier Characteristics:
These dogs can be energetic, brave, loyal, intelligent, affectionate, easy to train, sweet. The Yorkshire Terrier needs to have an owner who exhibits a "leader of the pack" mentality, one who sets boundries and does not allow the Yorkie to get away with bad behavior just because she is cute. When walking her, have her walk next to or behind you, so that she doeas not get the impression she is the leader. To let the Yorkie rule the house is to invite a yappy, jealous, agressive little dog. Show her who is boss and you will have the sweetest friend to cuddle with.
Yorkshire Terriers are sensitive to cold and do well indoors so are suited for an apartment; howver, they do require a daily walk. This breed sheds little to no hair, so is well suited for those who are allergic to animals, but also means that you must groom her often.
