History

The Yorkshire Terrier, call Yorkie To abreviate, comes from the north of England and Scotland. Aquí sirvió durante siglos como un versátil perro de casa y de jardín. Its territory was later the settlements of the working poor, that were built en masse with industrialization. The little houses were small, conditions were tight. No había lugar para un perro grande. Los pequeños terriers eran exactamente los adecuados aquí y sirvieron al pueblo durante muchos años como perros guardianes y cazadores. Keeping rats and mice away small, ahuyentando a una marta o zorro que quería atacar a las gallinas o palomas, matando de vez en cuando algún conejo; the Yorkie demostró ser un ayudante útil. It is even said that the old Yorkie has gone to the rabbit hole to hunt. Despite its rather delicate appearance, the Yorkshire Terrier it's a complete dog. Basically, it is a concise breed with a sometimes stubborn and fearless temperament. At the same time, has served as a lap dog for over 150 years.

Your current form as “Yorkshire Terrier” with very long and silky hair is the result of a directed show breeding. What's more, their ancestors were normally much larger than the current ones or even the Toy Yorkies.

In ancient documents, even 6 KG as the weight of a Yorkshire Terrier. Like the other little British Isles terriers, the Yorkie se origina en última instancia a partir de un único gran acervo genético de esos terriers de los primeros asentamientos de la clase trabajadora. Only through deliberate artificial separation, that is to say, la separación de la cría, se convirtió en las muchas razas de terrier que están genéticamente separadas hoy en día. Already in 1873 the Yorkshire Terrier was recognized as a breed of dog by the Kennel Club.

De acuerdo a los registros, the Yorkshire Terrier was the first most popular breed in the United States in 2002. His first appearance in a canine exposition took place around 1880, e inmediatamente encontró una gran aceptación en el público. It currently ranks first in the English breeds, y es uno de los perros de compañía más difundidos en todo el mundo.

The Yorkshire Terrier It is the product of the combination of Scottish and English Terriers, It occurred when a part of the population of Scotland was displaced due to the Industrial Revolution and settled in England. The races that have led to the Yorkshire Terrier include the Waterside Terrier, the Clydesdale Terrier or Paisley Terrier (extinct race). The Scottish influence is given by the Scottish Terrier, the West Highland White Terrier, the Maltese, the Cairn Terrier and the Skye Terrier.

Physical characteristics


¿Cómo es un Yorkshire Terrier?

The Yorkshire Terrier it's a dwarf dog. And at the same time this little dog is a real terrier. He wants to be taken seriously as a dog and not as an accessory to a human. The Yorkshire Terrier it is the smallest of all terriers. However, its size is not exactly defined by the standard. As weight, valid standard specifies up to 3,2 kg.

Unfortunately people try to dwarf this dog more and more. Therefore, es muy aconsejable un peso mínimo de 2,4 KG para la cría, which must be confirmed by weighing in the breed's fitness tests. A weight less than 2,4 kg para un perro adulto debe marcarse como cría de tortura debido a los problemas físicos y mentales que lo acompañan. The dog's natural building plan, which is already extremely flexible and powerful, no longer works with a weight less than 2,4 kg. Algunos criadores con intenciones lucrativas suspenden la alimentación de la madre unas semanas antes del parto para conseguir crías más pequeñas. This malnutrition translates into problems of bones and joints that suffer in adulthood.

Many breeders and lovers pay close attention to the fur of the yorkie. Su abrigo no debe ser ondulado según el estándar, but this should not be taken too seriously. In times past Yorkies they also wore wavy fur. Que sea lisa no tiene ningún origen histórico. Originates from the imagination of the breeder community. Also the length of the coat is a problem area. For many it may not be enough. However, a coat that is too long prevents the dog from running and seeing. Por el bien del perro no debería ser demasiado largo. The coat should be shiny and of a fine, silky texture. A rich golden color is desired.

Se recomienda siempre para la cría, males and females of similar weights, While it is true that it is advisable that the male although slightly less than the female, of course it is not advisable to join a female of 1 kg with a male of 3 kg, ya que este puede dar crías grandes que dificulten la gestación de la hembra.

A small example of the intersection between Yorkshire Terrier, governed by weight, sería el siguiente:

  • Female: 1kg-2kg >> Macho: 1kg-1, 5 kg
  • Female: 2kg-3kg >> Macho: 1kg-5 lbs
  • Female: 3kg-4kg >> Macho: 2kg-7 lbs
  • Female: 4kg-7kg >> Macho: 3kg-6.5kg

¿Cuanto puede vivir un Yorkshire Terrier?

One yorkie raised healthily he has robust health and can easily reach the 15 years and more, y eso con una buena condición física. Las líneas criadas a lo largo de generaciones para la “beauty” and especially the extremely small specimens, the so-called minis, they tend to die much earlier and are regular clients of veterinarians during their lifetime. The longevity of a Yorkshire Terrier less weight, retailing at 2 kg, tends to be around 9 years (they are equivalent to 63 human years)

Character and skills
