A small breed with long, silky hair, the Yorkshire Terrier is bold, inquisitive, and stubborn. They’re often quite assertive with strange dogs and small pets. Some also bark excessively, but can easily be trained not to engage in this behavior.
This is a great breed for people who are busy or not very active as they can usually get enough exercise on their own inside the home. They do, however, enjoy a daily walk outside or the chance to spend some time exploring a safe, fenced-in area.
These dogs do require some grooming, including brushing their coat daily or at least every other day.
