Yorkshire Terrier

Product 40 of 48

Genetic analysis have shown that the dog started developing from the wolf about 135.000 years ago. Yet it is highly unlikely that the wolvess were simply domesticated. Contrary to dogs they loose their tameness when they become young grown ups. It is assumed that there had been some wolves that were more trusting and thus dared to go near the upcoming settlings of men. They discovered this way an ecological niche, because there always had been some leftovers. Thus the more trusting wolves had a selective benefit and over thousands of years they evolved into their own species: The dog. Humans were able to breed these for special purposes or as a companion dog soley.

The ancestors of the Yorkshire Terrier are assumed to have been brought to England by Scottish immigrants and were used for chasing rats and hunting rabbits. They were crossbred from different breeds, this combination was first bred in Yorkshire, hence the name. He was bred to be of small size, for he is a popular lap dog, which is content with staying in a flat. His outstandingly fine and silky coat has to be of defined colour. He is a little pretty boy, but an adorable companion, very intelligent and lively too.

Our Yorkie of plush has just as wonderful hair as his living specimen, it is silky straight and even coiffed with the typical  ribbon.
