The Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog breed of terrier type, developed during the 19th century in Yorkshire, England, to catch rats in clothing mills. The defining feature of the breed is its maximum size of 7 pounds (3.2 kg), although some may exceed this and grow up to 15 pounds (6.8 kg). It is placed in the Toy Terrier section of the Terrier Group by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale and in the Toy Group or Companion Group by other kennel clubs, including the American Kennel Club. A popular companion dog, the Yorkshire Terrier has also been part of the development of other breeds, such as the Australian Silky Terrier. It has a grey, black, and tan coat, and the breed’s nickname is Yorkie. -WIKIPEDIA [photo credit]
These are popular little dogs and, although I see them around all the time, I’ve only had one experience with Yorkies as house guests. They were siblings, and incredibly cute. Unfortunately, the male insisted on marking his territory (ie. peeing) indoors on a daily basis, even though he was neutered. (Not necessarily a cure, especially if done after the bad habit was already established.) This prompted me to suggest they find an alternative for boarding next time.
What do you think of these toy breeds?
Would you tolerate a dog peeing inside your house?
(I can handle the odd accident or two, but not as a frequent occurrence!)
Looking forward to your comments!
