Yorkies are terriers, a spirited group of dogs that are sometimes too gutsy for their own good. Their small size makes them susceptible to bullying, or worse, from other dogs (even if they imagine they can take on anything and everybody).

Most Yorkie dogs make friends easily but some display the standoffish true nature of the true terrier. It's best to give them let them meet lots of different people and see as many unusual sights and sounds as possible. If you fail to do this they may become suspicious shrill, or even nasty.

One Last Thing

Yorkies are NOT suited to very young children.. no matter how well-meaning the child. Very young children can't help being clumsy.That the child meant well is little comfort to a Yorkshire Terrier who has been accidentally stepped on,sat on, rolled on, squeezed, or dropped on patio tiles.Most Yorkies get alarmed by the loud voices and the quick movements that children can't help making. This can cause stress and fearfulness. (even defensive biting) .
