The Yorkshire Terrier is the second most popular breed of dog in the world. Affectionately called "Yorkies", they are also nicknamed "The Walking Jewel". They are also considered hypoallergenic, because like the Toy Poodle they have hair instead of fur.

Despite their size, yorkshire terriers are tough little dogs. On a walk, they may even dare take on a big dog, like a German Shepherd. If you don't like trouble going on in your home, yorkshire terriers make excellent watchdogs and are pros at protection. Their barking may get a little out of hand though, so early training may be necessary. From tough little watchdogs to pampered little pups, these dogs make great companions.

They thrive in mostly any environment from cold setted Scandinavian homes to warm, urban Modern homes. They will enjoy the mountains, beach, and downtown--even the regular neighborhood. Their coat often requires regular attention, so brush and bathe often. While training, as much as they love to please, always reward them with a treat or they may pay no attention. Overall, this is not a breed for a first-time owner, but will bond well with the ideal experienced owner, and will make a good pet.

At the Nintendogs + Cats Club Kennel, the only available kind is Black & Tan. If the player chooses "Surprise me!" they may find a black-and-white, grey-and-white, or pure white Yorkshire Terrier. The pure white Yorkshire Terrier may not be 100% pedigree, as this coat color is unusual in the breed.


3DS: "Bred in England, the Yorkie is small but strong. It's known for its silky coat."
