A Yorkie is a type of doggie, officially known as a Yorkshire Terrier.
These little guys were first bred in England, in a county called Yorkshire, which is why they got their name!
Yorkies are known for their long, silky fur which can be many colors but is often steel blue and tan.
One great thing about Yorkies is they are really small, usually between 5 to 7 pounds, which is just a little heavier than your school backpack.
That makes them perfect as lap dogs because they love to cuddle and are really good at it.
They have a big personality packed into that small body and often forget how small they are, acting like they’re big, brave lions!
Yorkies are also very smart and quick to learn new tricks, so you can have a lot of fun teaching them.
One interesting fact about Yorkies is they used to work, catching rats in clothing mills a long time ago.
Now, Yorkies are best at being loyal and loving companions that bring a lot of joy and love into their families’ lives.
