Learn all about what makes the Yorkshire Terrier one of the most popular dog breeds.
Having a very appealing charisma often makes the Yorkshire Terrier a favorite with many dog owners. If you own a Yorkshire Terrier, you already know it is often difficult to resist its charm. It does not only flow beautifully across a show hall, but is full of energy loving to dash around in any open space. Physically, the Yorkshire Terrier is a little dog and is often described as cute with its small dimensions and beautiful looking coat. Despite its small stature, the Yorkshire Terrier has a vivacious personality, making it huge amounts of fun for its owners.
The cute Terrier we know and love today was like the majority of dogs, bred for a purpose. It was the Terrier's job to control vermin in the newly industrialized cities during the 19th century. There, small size made them perfect for chasing after rats where other dogs could not follow. Their tenacity, prey instincts and ability to work on their own are all breed characteristics associated with the modern Yorkshire Terrier.
