Yorkshire Terrier  

Yorkshire Terrier

The Yorkshire Terrier is a single-coated breed of dog that has a long, straight, flowing coat. It has a compact body, a relatively small flattened head and small V-shaped ears that stand erect or half erect. Its medium length docked tail is carried fairly high. A pet that was in fashion with Victorian ladies, the Yorkshire Terrier carries itself in a confident manner that suggests vigor and self importance. Its first appearance was at a bench show in England as the “Broken-Haired Scotch Terrier” as it was originally brought by Scottish weavers who migrated to Yorkshire in England. It became known by its present name after it was noted that the breed has gained considerable improvement in Yorkshire. Yorkie is its most common nickname.
