This is a very commonly asked question and yet, it is still not asked enough. Before purchasing a Yorkie puppy, one should first take their lifestyle into careful consideration. The Yorkshire Terrier is a very frail little dog and does not do well in a household with children (both from risk of injury as well as the noise tending to make them very nervous and excitable).

One must also be very careful of the Yorkie with other pets, such as larger dogs that can injure him, accidentally, during play.  Yorkies and cats are not always a good idea. Your Yorkie will make your cat’s life a living hell with constant barking and chasing.

Yorkies are often difficult to socialize, as well. They tend to be very nervous and high strung, which commonly makes them yappers or prone to nip.

Left alone for long periods of time, this breed can also be highly destructive and frequently suffers from Canine Separation Anxiety.

Of course, for many, the good outweighs the bad and the Yorkshire Terrier is worth it. Known to be very affectionate towards their owners as well as being considered to be an ideal pet for those who are allergic to pet dander, it all depends on your lifestyle and the dog you choose in the end. Take your time and pick wisely, and you’re sure to find a wonderful pet with lots of love to share.
