About Yorkies

Small, but Special

Yorkies grow to be about 7-8 inches in height, and are usually between 4-7 pounds. They are hypoallergenic and their soft, human like hair needs plenty of upkeep and grooming.

Not only are they one of the smallest dog breed types, but they are bold, intelligent, and confident creatures.

Their Soft Side

Yorkies are knows to have spunky and unique personalities. Though they are energetic and playful, they are also very gentle, tender, and sweet to those they love.

Along with their sweet personalities, they have more than one soft side. Quite literally, they have soft, silky hair that requires regular grooming to keep it clear of knots, weeds and more. One great way you can show your dog how much you love them is by helping them maintain their soft hair with shampoo and even conditioner.

Groom Often
