Yorkie Fun Facts

The Yorkshire terrier ranks first among the toy breeds and sixth among all breeds on the American Kennel Club's popularity list. Compact, companionable, and full of attitude, the Yorkie has been a widely favored housedog since moving out of the mines and mills approximately 150 years ago. Sparkling eyes and equally sparkling personality make the Yorkie impossible to ignore. It's hard to believe that the opinion of dog professionals was once that this little dog would never achieve widespread popularity.

While much about this breed has certainly changed over the years, its personality formed early and has undergone little modification. This dog requires a responsible owner who will remain committed to both his mental and physical upkeep. Like all dogs, the Yorkie needs dental and medical care, but the breed's long coat and special personality deserve extra attention. Daily grooming and training are among this dog's most important needs.

It is very important to us here at Luxury Yorkies that our puppies go to responsible owners who will give these pets the care and attention they need. If you are intersted in puchasing a puppy from Luxury Yorkies, email us today!

Fun Facts About Yorkies!


  • This breed is almost always referred to as a Yorkie.

  • It is a Yorkshire Terrier fact that most are very good with children and make great family pets.

  • Puppies begin to open their eyes at the age of 3 to 4 weeks. This is also when they begin hearing well.

  • They will begin teething between 4 and 7 months old.

  • With the AKC, this breed is in the Toy group.

  • Their life span is 12-15 years. Because they are a toy breed dog, a 15 year old will be the equivalent of a 76 year old human.

  • The history of Yorkshire terrier dogs is quite interesting. You might not have guessed it from looking at today's primped little princesses, but at one time, these live status symbols were, well... just regular old dogs! They were in fact, Scotland's own live exterminators destined to chase down and kill off rodents. Otherwise known as "ratters," Yorkies kept mice, rats, and other unpleasant vermin away from bedrooms and kitchens.

  • The smallest dog ever recorded was a Yorkshire Terrier.  This dog lived in England and when she passed at the age of 2, she only weighed 4 ounces.

  • It wasn't until 1861 that the Yorkie appeared in the first dog show even though at the time, it wasn't known as the Yorkie. It was known as the Broken-Haired Scotch Terrier instead.

  • We started calling this breed "Yorkshire" in 1870 as a way to credit the history of Yorkshire terriers and their origin. This is also when the first Yorkie landed on American soil. The very first Yorkie registered with the AKC entered the registry in 1878 and the breed managed to maintain its role as a status symbol ever since. Its popularity only fell during the 40s, but it sharply rose during World War II thanks to "Smoky," a famous war Yorkie.
