They were originally bred in Yorkshire, Britain to clear mines and factories of rats in the mid-nineteenth century, and were brought over to America in 1872.
The recognition of the breed has continuously climbed ever since, and is now the second most well-liked breed in the U. S. Independent and loyal, Teacup Yorkies share identical personality as all Yorkshire Terrier types. While they can frequently be found snoozing in a warm lap, they also like to sleep in privacy, frequently finding a corner or isolated place in which to snooze off. They can be fiercely protecting of their families, and are thought to be rather territorial, at times protecting their owners from a much bigger contestant. Teacup Yorkies are also intensely alert and will bark at the smallest probability of an intruder. However, due to their pointy minds, they can become bored really fast. Whether you live a Hollywood mansion or a little Long Island house, Teacup Yorkies make fantastic pets. Bold, protecting, loving and unswerving, they supply excellent friendship for any dog lover. When you do not give your Yorkie a treat for doing something good, you need to praise them. Whenever your Yorkie does something bad, be certain to punish them.
