When non-dog people think of toy dogs, more than likely it's the Yorkshire Terrier that comes to mind. Cuter than any stuffed animal and sized-just-right to go anywhere, Yorkies are also sturdy, feisty, true terriers - reportedly bred by the working folk of Yorkshire England to hunt vermin in the mills. Your Yorkie's prey may be his favorite toy, but the instinct is still there, as is the intelligence, problem-solving and devotion to his "job" - being a practically perfect companion. While Yorkies can range in size from under three pounds to over 10, all Yorkies share some common traits, including sensitive necks/throats that make harnesses a must-have in your Yorkshire Terrier's wardrobe. These are some of our favorite things - chosen with Yorkies in mind:
