About Yorkshire Terriers
Yorkshire Terriers were originally bred in England by ordinary working men to catch rats in factories, mines and mills. They were also handy hunting partners for ferreting out badgers and foxes from their dens and burrows, as the Yorkie could be carried in the hunter’s pocket until needed.
Prior to 1874, they were known as Broken-Haired Scotch or Toy Terriers until a reporter commented at a show that they had much improved since coming to Yorkshire!
As more breeders and fanciers promoted the breed in the Victorian era, it became the most desirable companion for ladies. Pretty, playful, personable, portable - many a be-ribboned Yorkie sat in a fancy carriage on satin pillow alongside its owner, thus making a smooth transition from its working class roots to high society.
Today, Yorkies come in many guises. Whether a silky smooth, long haired show dog, with a bow in their hair and a jewelled collar or an adorably scruffy little urchin with a thirst for adventure, these tiny & terrific dogs will always be a terrier at heart.
