Yorkshire Terrier

Pair of side elevation drawings of the Yorkshire Terrier in standing and seated postures

With a maximum weight of only seven pounds, the Yorkshire Terrier—also known as the Yorkie—is a feisty but deeply loyal member of the toy group of doggos with origins tracing back to 1800s Yorkshire, England. With a floor length, silky, hair-like coat, the Yorkshire Terrier was bred for companionship and prefers the spotlight. The Yorkie is highly expressive and manages to pack in a larger-than-life personality in its petite build, making it better-suited for households without small children. A true urbanite, the Yorkshire Terrier thrives in compact spaces and has an average lifespan of sixteen years.

Dogs are domesticated mammals of the Carnivora order. Descendants of wolves, dogs are the first animals to have been domesticated by humans.
