The Yorkshire Terrier hails from Northern England where he had the job of keeping down the rat population in coal pits and cotton mills. 

He was also used to compete in rat-killing contests. 

The original Yorkie was twice the weight of today's terrier, but since he has been bred down in size, the Yorkshire Terrier has become the most popular Toy breed in England. 

One of the world's smallest dogs, the Yorkie today weighs no more than 7 pounds. His long, straight, silky coat is believed to be inherited from Maltese ancestors. Puppies are born almost black and lighten to a steel-blue by twelve months old. The Yorkie has a tan-coloured head and legs. Daily brushing is required.

Tiny but tough, the Yorkshire Terrier has been described as "a big dog personality in a small dog body". He will make an alert watchdog. As a true terrier, the Yorkie is lively, brave, and spirited. Although he is affectionate and cheerful in disposition, the Yorkie, like many smaller dogs, does not tolerate the rough-housing common with very young children. 

His small size makes him an ideal companion in even the smallest accommodation. Although his activity level is high, running around the house should provide enough exercise, making him the perfect pet for the stay-at-home. He is a fast learner and easily trained. Like other terriers, he will benefit from early obedience training and socialization.
