Yorkeltie History

The Yorkie is a toy breed of canine that originated in the United Kingdom. The Yorkshire Terrier is named after a place in south central England called Yorkshire, where it was established in the 1820s. The origin of the name is disputed, but it is thought to come from either the Isle of Yorke or the River Ouse. The conformation show standard for the Yorkshire Terrier calls for a well-balanced, compact body with convex sides, a blunt muzzle, and round, dark eyes. The coat, which comes in solid, broken or patched colors, is profuse and straight. The AKC recognizes the Yorkshire Terrier, and American Kennel Club (AKC) describe the ideal height as 6–7 inches (15–18 cm). The weight range is 4–7 lb (1.8–3.2 kg). The temperament of the Yorkshire terrier is described as lively, active and alert. The breed is very playful and affectionate, and that does not mind being the center of attention. The Yorkie is loyal to its family and does well with older, considerate children. They require little grooming.
