Quick Tips about Yorkshire Terriers
- Also known as
- Yorkshire Terrier Size
- Yorkshire Terriers can weigh from 2 pounds to 12 pounds. The smaller ones are often called Teacup Yorkies, Tiny Toy Yorkies, or Extreme Tiny Yorkies, but these are not different varieties or breeds. They're simply made-up marketing terms designed to lure you into paying high prices for smaller individuals, who are no more "special" than larger individuals.
- Yorkshire Terrier Coat
- Yorkies have a long coat, but it can be sheared short for easy brushing and an adorable "perpetual puppy" look.
