Yorkies have long shimmering coats and charming facial expressions. Because of its size, the Yorkshire Terrier is considered a toy breed.
Lifespan: 11–15 yr
Height: 7–8 in
Weight: 2–10 lb
If kept long, the Yorkshire Terrier's coat requires daily brushing. It's best to trim or tie up the hair on the upper part of your Yorkie's head (i.e., the bangs). This prevents it from irritating the eyes. To simplify grooming, some owners opt to clip their Yorkie's coats short. In addition to weekly baths, check your dog's ears regularly for any debris, and clean them as needed.
