At Petland, we understand your adoration 100%, and that’s why we’ve decided to give you some basic information to help you in your decision-making process. We know you’re going to want to purchase one of our Yorkshire terrier puppies after reading this post! You’ve been warned!
Larger Than Life Personalities
Yes, Yorkies for sale are small, teeny even at times, but their little bodies are about the only thing small on them. They have such sweet personalities, and they’re downright comical at times. They are uniquely charming, intelligent, and extremely cute. They are packed with character that you’ll find endearing and entertaining.
The Yorkshire Terrier originated in Yorkshire, England, during the late 18th century. They belong to the terrier category. The word terrier is rooted from the Latin word “terra,” which means earth or land. Yorkies were referred to as “land dogs.” This was primarily because these particular groups of dogs were bred to clean up rats from English farms, both below and above ground.
Small Dog Syndrome
Yorkies “suffer” from small dog syndrome. You know what that means? It means they think they’re big dogs in a little dog’s body! Yorkies are incredibly brave and courageous. We have to give full disclosure. Yorkies can sometimes be a bit bossy, too. This may be hard to believe, but they make great guard dogs. They will be barking to let you know of any intruders or strangers, but they can’t attack or apprehend a culprit. Because they can be aggressive at times, we recommend that when you purchase one of our Yorkies for sale, you socialize your pup as soon as possible with other dogs.
Yorkies are sweet and energetic. To keep them in their healthiest shape, feed them a nutritious diet and take them for daily walks. You’ll enjoy them as much as they’ll enjoy you. If you have any other questions about our Yorkies for sale, give us a call or come to our store.
