PURINA: Your Pet, Our Passion

Yorkshire Terrier

Named for the English city where he originated, the Yorkshire Terrier is brave, determined, energetic and investigative. Originally owned by the middle class, especially weavers, the Yorkie has a long, luxurious blue-and-tan coat. The breed adapts well and travels easily. A protective companion, the Yorkie requires little exercise but needs daily interaction with his family and regular brushing.
