Yorkshire Terrier Puppies for Sale | Central Park Puppies

The Yorkshire Terrier is one of the most popular lap dogs of the Toy breeds. With its long, silky coat and happy personality, the breed brings a big dog attitude to a small dog frame. More sturdy and vigorous than assumed, these pups are confident and capable of adventures as well as happy to lounge in the lap of its favorite person.

These pups sport silky tan and blue coats that resemble human hair more closely than the double-coated fur. Due to these coats, Yorkies are more suitable for families who have dog allergies than some other breeds. These pups require a fair amount of grooming to keep their locks from matting but are typically not heavy shedders.

Like most of the Terrier breeds, Yorkies can be very vocal and are ferocious hunters of insects and rodents. While their size makes them suitable for apartment living, their propensity to bark may be a nuisance. A dog that is well socialized and not left alone for long periods can be happy in an apartment setting.

Yorkies can enjoy life in an urban or suburban setting but should never be walked without a leash as they can give chase to small animals. They are happy to meet other people and easily make new friends, however, they can be suspicious of other dogs and may need time warming up to them in different situations. Once this pup accepts other dogs in their pack, they are happy to play and romp.

Many Yorkie owners enjoy taking their pups with them almost anywhere as they fit nicely into puppy purses and bags. Many of them love to go on adventures and are great companions for people who live alone or for families with children. These pups live between 11 and 14, so commitment to care is imperative when considering bringing your puppy home.

These puppies are smart and easily trainable, especially when treats are involved. They love to please their family with their quick learning and obedience. While they are not known guard dogs, they can become extremely vocal when threatening situations occur, barking incessantly to alert their families.

Whether you are looking for a fun and playful pup or a snuggly companion, the Yorkshire Terrier is an excellent choice overall. Its size makes it easily portable, and its attitude makes it easily lovable.
