==================

Sweet little Kerrington (aka Kerri) is a sweet little “Velcro” dog that really wants to be with you – always! 😊 She likes other dogs but is OK to be the only spoiled one in the household. Although she’s not been around kitties, we suspect, given her sweet and loving nature, she’d be OK w/them.

Like most Yorkies, she can be a little stubborn but not unreasonable. With a previous Yorkie owner who knows the breed, she will become less stubborn with your patience, love, and time. She loves car rides and her walks – gets so excited when she sees her leash.

As a young dog at ~ 2 years old, she is somewhat active but does enjoy her lap time w/her human(s). She enjoys looking out the window as she is taking it all in.

Little Kerri does NOT like crates and may do best in a small, confined area w/a gate. She is not 100% housebroken but uses pads. Someone home to continue the house training would be optimal.

Ideally, a home without children is best as little children aren’t good w/little dogs due to their wanting to “play” w/the little ones, which can be a bit rough for the little canine.

Pros and cons of Yorkshire Terriers

The Good

· Fine-boned, elegant, easy to carry, doesn’t take up much space

· Sheds very lightly (one of the best breeds for allergy sufferers)

· Lively and inquisitive, moves swiftly with light-footed grace

· Doesn’t need a lot of exercise

· A keen watchdog – won’t fail to announce strangers

· Peaceful with other pets

The Bad

· Physically fragile, requiring a great deal of supervision and monitoring

· Notorious housebreaking difficulties

· Prone to barking

· Regular brushing and combing, or regularly trimming/clipping the coat short

· Suspiciousness, shrillness, and nastiness when babied or spoiled or not socialized enough or made to behave

The two main behavior problems in Yorkies:

· Housebreaking. The Yorkshire Terrier is one of the Top 5 List of Hardest Breeds to Housebreak, according to a dog behaviorist. If you live in a cold or rainy climate, it’s worse, because Yorkies hate both the cold and the rain.

A COVERED potty area is strongly recommended or teach him/her to use an indoor litter box.

· Barking. With their keen senses, Yorkies make excellent watchdogs. However, this can make them too quick to sound the alarm at every new sight and sound. You have to be equally quick to stop them before excessive barking becomes an established habit.
