Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkshire Terrier is a small-sized dog breed. This dog is energetic and can be a caring friend if trained properly.


The Yorkshire Terrier came from Yorkshire. In the mid-nineteenth century, employees from Scotland arrived in Yorkshire searching for work and took various terrier types with them. In the 19th century, miners attempted to create Black-and-Tan Terriers, ratting terriers along with the Clydesdale and Paisley Terriers.
