Just a Sample of Our Babies....
The name Yorkshire Terrier is often abbreviated to Yorkie.  Yorkies are a small breed of dog; Standard Yorkies should weigh less than 7 pounds.  Yorkies are a glossy, silky soft, long haired dog without an undercoat - which means that they shed less than most short haired dogs.  Yorkshire Terriers have a well proportioned, compact body with a level back from the base of their neck to the base of their tail.  Yorkies are generally intelligent, curious, self confident dogs which may exhibit a protective instinct.  Yorkies are also playful and typically get along well with other dogs.
