Named for the English city where he originated, the Yorkshire Terrier is brave, determined, energetic and investigative. Originally owned by the middle class, especially weavers, the Yorkie has a long, luxurious blue-and-tan coat. The breed adapts well and travels easily. A protective companion, the Yorkie requires little exercise but needs daily interaction with his family and regular brushing.
