Yorkie is the nickname for Yorkshire Terriers, a small breed of dog. Yorkies are of the toy category, weighing usually anywhere from 5 to 7 pounds. They often have a long, black and tan coat. These dogs do not shed and are excellent for owners with allergies.
Yorkies are usually very intelligent dogs, although they can be dominant. Yorkies make excellent lap dogs, but they will want plenty of attention and most are very dependant on their owners.
Sidney adopted the cutest Yorkie from the SPCA yesterday, he always loved Yorkshire Terriers.
