The Yorkshire terrier is a small dog breed of terrier type, developed in the 1800s in the historical area of Yorkshire, England. The defining features of the Yorkshire Terrier are its small size, less than 3.2kg, and its silky blue and tan coat. The breed is nicknamed Yorkie Terrier.

As its name suggests, the Yorkshire Terrier originated in Yorkshire County and the neighboring Manchester County. In the mid-nineteenth century, craftsmen from Scotland who came to Yorkshire for work, brought with them several different varieties of small long-coated terriers, generally known as Scottish terriers.

Yorkshire Terrier can live as long as 15 years, but Yorkshire Terrier must be handled with care: Because of their small size, they can be troubled by a number of health problems including hip and joint issues, poor digestion, tooth decay and bone fractures. Yorkshire Terrier breeds are fragile dogs. Be careful when holding them or transporting them and be sure to regularly feed them solid foods.
