Affectionate, curious, and just the right size to cuddle, who doesn’t love Yorkshire Terriers? Originally bred in 19th-century England and considered a member of the ‘toy terrier’ subgroup, the handsome Yorkie is a popular and most lovable little lap dog that has kept people of all ages company ever since. And we have compiled loads of adorable images in this great 12” x 12” wall calendar.
The Yorkie can have a variety of colors in its beautiful, silky coat. And for breeders and those who participate in dog shows, a great emphasis is put on the color and quality of the coat. For as much as the first three years of their lives, Yorkies do not develop the final, adult coloration of their fur. When they mature, a particular distribution of tan and black and the straight, smooth nature of the fur are the most widely sought traits. As usual, we here at BrownTrout find them all adorable, but with a different image every month of the year you can pick out your favorite!
Yorkies also have hypoallergenic coats and shed less than other breeds, making them an excellent choice for those with allergies. And though they may not look very fierce, they are loyal and can be very vocal (if diminutive) guard dogs! But what they do definitely bring to the table is looks: extremely soft cream and brown colored fur, shiny black noses and (more often than not) an adorable pink little tongue poking out of a happy mouth. Their long coat means that they require (and gratefully receive) more pampering and grooming than many other breeds, except for perhaps the Poodles.
