The Yorkshire Terrier (also known as a “Yorkie”) is a Toy breed that originated in England (in Yorkshire, in fact!).  While these small dogs are now bred as companions, they were originally used to hunt vermin.  It was only later that they became the dog of choice for the high society.

Yorkshire Terriers do not have an undercoat, this means that they are considered low to no shedding.  The hair grows continuously and will only come loose when brushed out or broken.  The breed has little “dog smell” and is considered a good choice for people with allergies.  In the photo above a Yorkie’s coat is wrapped to prevent the hair from breaking.  This is done for show dogs to keep up their stellar appearance.
