Yorkshire Terrier Dog Breed

Yorkshire Terriers

Yorkshire Terrier

The Yorkshire Terrier became a fashionable pet in the late Victorian era and even before. But in its beginnings it belonged to the working class, especially the weavers. In fact, it was so closely linked to them that many facetious comments were made regarding the fine texture of its extremely long, silky coat, terming it in the ultimate product of the looms.

The Yorkshire Terrier traces to the Waterside Terrier, a small longish-coated dog, bluish-gray in color, weighing between 6-20 pounds. The Waterside Terrier-crossed with the old rough-coated Black and Tan English Terrier and with the Paisley and Clydesdale Terriers. All these breeds were bred together to make what is known as the Yorkshire Terrier.
