Small in stature, yet boasting huge personalities, the popular and absolutely adorable Yorkshire Terrier has a silky soft coat that hardly sheds and is considered hypo-allergenic. Bold and overly confident for such a little dog, the Yorki makes an ideal house pet for city dwellers and apartment living for those who require more interactive companionship than space. Activity requirements are easily met through short leisurely walks and shared indoor games. Excellent watchdogs, the Yorki will always alert their family to a potential intruder, or the passing mailman. The small size of the Yorki makes them an excellent travel companion and their dignified beauty makes it easy for their devoted family to spoil them.
