16 Yorkie Facts So Interesting You’ll Say, “OMG!”

A Yorkshire is always instantly recognizable. The four-legged friend is one of the smaller dog breeds and is about 30 centimeters tall on average, with males usually being slightly larger than females. They are among the very light dogs and weigh between 2.4 and 3.2 kilos. This makes them one of the lightest dog breeds and they have a very delicate physique.

#1 The colors blue and tan are allowed in the breed standard. Characteristic is the medium-length fur, which is often held together with a clip, especially on the face of the Yorkies.

So the small dogs have a clear view and the fur does not hang in front of or in the amber eyes. Otherwise, the coat is very silky and needs a lot of care.

#3 The Yorkshire Terrier is often treated like a doll, a fashion accessory, or even a human because some owners prioritize humanization. In short: it shouldn’t be.
