About the Yorkshire Terrier

Developed in England to control the rat population in the coal pits and cotton mills, Yorkies today enjoy a bit more pampered lifestyle. They crave affection and do best in the homes of adults or older children who can provide them with regular attention throughout the day. Their "big dog" attitude, strong terrier instincts, and a self-assured manner makes them an alert watchdog. More>>

My Yorkies name is Roxy! We got her on December 20th. We have a lab and a havanese and one day I went outside to get something and I didn't know she followed me out and my lab attacked her. We are looking for a survivor name for her.... Do any of you know a survivor name for a 16 week old Yorkie?

Gloria. That is NOT usual for a Yorkie get that babie to the vets. They are usually very active doggies especially at 1 years old...something could be wrong then again he may be upset & need to settle in...& who knows what his life was like before ,but it's better to be safe than sorry.. Go to a good vet one that might be recommended by another dog owner... Hope this helps , I have owned many dogs & 3 Yorkies. Good luck
