It’s hard to say what you would notice first about a Yorkshire Terrier. It might be the diminutive size accented by the long silky coat, or the small, black, button sized nose. Or it could be the high carriage of its little head. Then again the perfectly erect V shaped ears certainly make an impression on the small, flat skull.
Overall the Yorkshire Terrier is a small well balanced dog with somewhat square proportions. The tail is naturally docked to a medium length and is carried erect slightly higher than the back.
Temperament and Personality:
The little Yorkie is a true terrier in its personality. Like many small breed dogs it does not seem to be aware of its size. The Yorkie personality could be summarized as loyal, fearless and willing to please.
The Yorkshire Terrier is intelligent, inquisitive, investigative, energetic, adventurous and somewhat stubborn. This is a breed that will seek adventure to the point of occasionally getting itself in trouble.
The Yorkshire Terrier possesses an endearing personality but can be aggressive with other dogs and small animals due to its vermin hunting origins. It can also be a bit jealous of young, active children and interaction between the two should be supervised. This bold little terrier, at times, may think itself a watch dog. While it functions well as an early warning system there is not much it can actually do to protect its family.
Exercise and Grooming:
The Yorkshire Terrier is a breed that has moderate exercise requirements. Daily walks and in home games that include interaction with people are sufficient exercise for Yorkies. But like any terrier, do not allow this dog to become bored or it may become demanding or seek out activity to satisfy itself.
The Yorkie does have some grooming requirements to maintain its beauty! Even if the coat is kept short the Yorkshire Terrier requires almost daily brushing and special attention to dental cleanings to avoid problems. Yorkies will usually require occasional professional grooming for bathing and clipping unless you have the ability to do it yourself.
Overall Yorkies enjoy excellent health. Few serious problems are seen with this breed. Some of the most noted problems include:
Injection reactions (swelling or hair loss at the site of an injection)
Other Things You Should Know:
The Yorkie’s long silky coat is low shedding and generally accepted as being hypoallergenic.
Yorkshire Terriers tend to require careful dental care to avoid problems in this area.
Yorkies may become demanding and even ‘nippy’ if not properly socialized with other animals and small children.
Little Known Facts:
Originally called the Broken-haired Scottish Terrier or Broken-haired Scotch Terrier and renamed to Yorkshire Terrier for its place of origin about 1870.
Yorkshire Terrier puppies are born black and tan and develop the blue/tan coat as they mature at nearly two years of age.
When Yorkshire Terriers first reached America in the 1870′s they weighed up to 14 pounds. US and European breeders agreed to breed down for the smaller size and longer silkier coat.
During the working days of the Yorkshire Terrier their primary hunting ground was in fabric mills. It became common to joke that the dogs’ fine, silky coats were the ultimate product of the looms.
Best Suited For:
The Yorkshire Terrier is well suited for apartment, condo and city living. However this dog will also do fine in a suburban setting. It is not, however, a dog that is meant to be outside for long periods in either hot or cold weather.
The exact formula of stock breeds that contributed to the origin of the Yorkshire Terrier is not clearly defined. However it is believed that several small breeds and terriers were called upon to produce the desired result. It is likely that the following breeds contributed to the origins of the Yorkie: Waterside Terrier, Clydesdale Terrier, Paisley Terrier, Rough-coated English Black and Tan Terrier, Skye Terrier, and Dandy Dinmont Terrier.
The Broken-haired Scottish Terrier or Broken-haired Scotch Terrier was originally bred in the Yorkshire area of England. This little breed was intended to be ratters in fabric mills with the responsibility to hunt small vermin in the factories.this humble, working class beginning caused the Yorkshire Terrier to be popular among the working class and snubbed by the upper class. However the Yorkie eventually became more popular as a companion animal to the upper class due to its beauty and size.

Three years ago I discovered how feeding my adopted Schnauzer,BJ a better diet could totally changed his overall wellness. When BJ was adopted, I was informed he had undergone major surgery in order to save his life due to a tear in his small intestines. Because of the nature of his health ( he battled with many digestive problems), I started researching what I could do as a pet parent to minimize his suffering. My research revealed how a change in his diet could not only improve his digestive issues but could also help him live a longer, healthier life. So you ask, is it really possible to feed your pets as well as you feed yourself? Is there really a difference in the grocery store brands and speciality brands? Does the ingredient really affect my pet’s overall wellness? The answer is , YES!
Pet Food Recalls
In 2007, the FDA discovered that certain contaminated pet foods contained melamine, which was causing renal failure in dogs and cats. This led to more than 100 pet deaths and 500 cases of kidney failure across the country, sparking a recall of Menu Foods LLC dog and cat food. Ultimately, the problem traced back to wheat gluten from a company in China that had been contaminated with the dangerous ingredient. The recall extended to several popular brands of pet foods including some touted as the gold standard in “health” for your pets, Science Diet.

After several major recalls more awareness of alternative product choices was brought to the fore front of pet parents.“People who never would have considered these foods before are suddenly turning over the bags and reading the labels and asking where the ingredients come from,” said Peter Atkins, president of Natura Pet Products in San Jose, Calif. “This niche has expanded dramatically in a very short time.” ~petproductnews.com (Natura pet food manufacture of California natural, Evo, Heathwise and Innova brands.)

HOUSTON – It is a military care package like most of us have never seen: cooling vests, “doggles,” yes, doggles are needed for our nation’s four legged warriors currently serving on frontlines.
The humans who run Boneyard Drinkery and All Natural Pet Delivery will host a fundraiser Saturday, March 10 from 4pm to 9pm at Boneyard. The goal is to raise money for the U.S. Military K-9 Fund.
“People dont know that military dogs are out there saving our lives,” said Pasha Cook, with All Natural Pet Delivery. “They’re there protecting our country so I want people in the pet industry to know about this so we can gather around this cause and bring awareness.”
In addition to fundraising, Cook wants to bring attention to HR bill 5314, which is a push to get military war dogs reclassified from “Equipment” to “MWD Troop/Soldier.”
Advocates say the change is necessary in order to undergrid the reclassification of a retiring military war dog from the current “Excess Equipment” to “MWD Veteran” or “Military K9 Veteran.”
“If you are equipment, once you’re used and done you can be easily done away with,” Cook said. “If you’re a soldier you get benefits. You know, sometimes its hard to get benefits for people, but these dogs are in the military. They’re going in (to dangerous situations) first. Actually a dog went in to help get Osama bin Laden so they should be classified as soldiers because theyre doing the work of soldiers. They’re saving soldiers lives. They’re saving our lives because they’re protecting us.”
One of those four legged “soldiers,” MWD Fama H176 will attend the fundraising event. MWD Fama deployed to Iraq twice to help sniff out explosives. When the military retired Fama, Bobbie Miller and Ann Morrison adopted her.
“We adopted her to an ambassador for our cause of sending care packages to the dogs so they can now have the extra equipment and supplies that they need to do their jobs,” said Morrison.
“You would never, never realize and know what they have been through,” said Miller. “If they could only talk.”
When President Obama went to Fort Campbell, Kentucky, recently for a highly publicized, but very private meeting with the commando team that killed Osama bin Laden, only one of the 81 members of the super-secret SEAL DevGru unit was identified by name: Cairo, the war dog.
Cairo, like most canine members of the elite U.S. Navy SEALs, is a Belgian Malinois. The Malinois breed is similar to German shepherds but smaller and More compact, with an adult male weighing in the 30-kilo range.
(German shepherds are still used as war dogs by the American military but The lighter, stubbier Malinois is considered better for the tandem Parachute jumping and rappelling operations often undertaken by SEAL teams.
Labrador retrievers are also favoured by various military organizations around the world .
Like their human counterparts, the dog SEALs are highly trained, highly skilled, highly motivated special ops experts, able to perform extraordinary military missions by SEa, Air and Land (thus the acronym).
The dogs, equipped with video cameras, also enter certain danger zones
First, allowing their handlers to see what’s ahead before humans follow.
As I mentioned before, SEAL dogs are even trained parachutists, jumping Either in tandem with their handlers or solo, if the jump is into water.
Last year canine parachute instructor Mike Forsythe and his dog Cara set the world record for highest man-dog parachute deployment, jumping from more than 30,100 feet up – the altitude transoceanic passenger jets fly at.
Both Forsythe and Cara were wearing oxygen masks and skin protectors for The jump.
Here’s a photo from that jump, taken by Andy Anderson for K9 Storm Inc. (more about those folks shortly).When the SEAL DevGru team (usually known by its old designation, Team 6) Hit bin Laden’s Pakistan compound on May 2, Cairo ‘s feet would have been Four of the first on the ground.
Like the human SEALs, Cairo was wearing super-strong, flexible body Armour and outfitted with high-tech equipment that included “doggles” -
Specially designed and fitted dog goggles with night-vision and infrared Capability that would even allow Cairo to see human heat forms through Concrete walls.
Now where on earth would anyone get that kind of incredibly niche hi-tech Doggie gear?
From Winnipeg , of all places.
Jim and Glori Slater’s Manitoba hi-tech mom-and-pop business, K9 Storm Inc., has a deserved worldwide reputation for designing and manufacturing probably the best body Armour available for police and military dogs.
Working dogs in 15 countries around the world are currently protected by Their K9 Storm body Armour.
Jim Slater was a canine handler on the Winnipeg Police Force when he Crafted a Kevlar protective jacket for his own dog, Olaf, in the mid-1990s.
Soon Slater was making body Armour for other cop dogs, then the Canadian Military and soon the world.
The standard K9 Storm vest also has a load-bearing harness system that Makes it ideal for tandem rappelling and parachuting.
And then there are the special hi-tech add-ons that made the K9 Storm Especially appealing to the U.S. Navy SEALs, who bought four of K9 Storm Inc.’s top-end Intruder “canine tactical assault suits” last year for $86,000. You can be sure Cairo was wearing one of those four suits when he jumped into bin Laden’s lair.
Here’s an explanation of all the K9 Storm Intruder special features:
- The U.S. Military currently has about 2,800 active-duty dogs
- Deployed around the world, with roughly 600 now in Afghanistan and Iraq .
The Pomeranian is a small toy sized dog. The head is wedge-shaped and in proportion with the body. The short muzzle is straight and fine. The stop is well pronounced. The color of the nose varies with coat color. The teeth meet in a scissors bite. The almond shaped eyes are dark and medium in size. The small, erect ears are set high. The feathered tail lies straight and flat over the back. Dewclaws are sometimes removed. The Pom has a thick, double coat. The outer coat is long straight, and harsh in texture while the undercoat is soft, thick and short. The coat is longer around the neck and chest area. Comes in a variety of coat colors and patterns including red, orange, white, cream, blue, brown, black, black and tan, wolf sable, orange sable, brindle and parti-color, which is white with colored markings.
The Pomeranian is a proud, lively little dog. Intelligent, eager to learn, very loyal to its handler and family. The Pom is a wonderful companion and showdog. The breed’s docile temper and affectionate nature endear it to many. They are alert, inquisitive and active: one of the most independent of the Toy breeds, they need a firm, gentle hand. Its liveliness and spirit make it well-liked by persons who do not usually care for toy dogs. They may be picky eaters. If it is properly introduced they usually get along with other dogs and household animals without any problems. Poms make good little watch dogs. Teach this dog early that it may bark a couple of times when the doorbell rings or when there are visitors, but then to keep quiet. Be very consistent about this. Poms have a delightful nature and do not cling to their handlers. This happy pup is good at learning tricks. Pomeranians need to see their owners as boss or they will become very demanding. If you allow your dog to tell YOU when and where to do things than you have a potential problem on your hands and you may not even realize it. It is not cute or smart, it’s dominance and will lead to bigger problems in the future if it has not already. Because of this breeds tiny size and it’s adorable Ewok looking face, there are a very high percentage of Poms who fall victim to Small Dog Syndrome, human induced behaviors, where the dog believes he is pack leader to humans. This can cause many varying degrees of behavior problems, which are NOT Pomeranian traits, but behaviors brought on by the way they are treated by the humans around them. Behaviors include, but are not limited to separation anxiety, willful, nervous, bold and sometimes temperamental, not hesitating to attack much bigger dogs. Guarding behaviors, and excessive barking as they try and tell THEIR humans what THEY want them to do. They can become reserved with strangers, barking at them excessively, and sometimes growling, snapping and biting. Because most humans treat this tiny canine in such a manner that the dog does not see them as pack leader, they are not recommended for children. However, if a Pom is given rules to follow, limits as to what they are allowed to do, daily pack walks and a calm, self-assured pack leader who displays confident assertion towards the dog, this can be a well rounded, mentally stable, trustworthy, wonderful family companion. Because of its size, it can make a good companion for an elderly person.
Height: 7-12 inches (18-30 cm.)
Weight: 3-7 pounds (1-3 kg.)
Pomeranians are prone to dislocated patella (knee-cap), slipped stifle, heart problems, eye infections, skin irritations and tooth decay and early loss. It is recommended that they are fed dry dog food or crunchy milk bones daily to help keep the teeth and gums in good condition. Newborn Pom puppies are very tiny and fragile. Three newborns can be held in the palm of ones hand. Dams on the smaller side often need to deliver by cesarean section. When the dog is old it may become molted with bald spots.
The Pomeranian is good for apartment living. They are very active indoors and will do okay without a yard. Be careful they do not overheat in hot weather.
Poms need a daily walk. Play will take care of a lot of their exercise needs, however, as with all breeds, play will not fulfill their primal instinct to walk. Dogs who do not get to go on daily walks are more likely to display behavior problems. They will also enjoy a good romp in a safe open area off lead, such as a large fenced in yard.
About 15 years.
The Pomeranian’s very long, double coat should be brushed frequently. If you work from the head, parting the coat and brushing it forward, it will fall neatly back in place, so the task, although time-consuming, is relatively easy. The cottony undercoat is shed once or twice a year. Dry shampoo when necessary. Clean the eyes and ears daily and take the dog for regular dental checkups. The Pomeranian is a constant shedder.
The Pomeranian got it’s name from the region of Pomerania, which is now the area of Germany and Poland, where it was developed from the ancient Spitz breeds. The original Pomeranians were much larger, weighing up to 30 pounds and worked as sheep herders. Marie Antoinette, Emile Zola, Mozart and Queen Victoria all owned Pomeranians. In 1870 the Kennel Club in England first recognized them as a breed. In 1888 Queen Victoria began breeding and showing the dogs. It was she who started breeding them down in size, making the breed very popular in England. The Pomeranian was first recognized by the AKC in 1888. Some of the Pom’s talents include: watchdog, agility and performing tricks. Poms make superior circus performers.
