What a delightful morning ritual. Just imagine starting out the day with this kind of play. The Yorkie puppy in this video is Lotus. Lotus is not feeling completely rested, and is doing all kinds of cute things to let mom know she needs to come back.
If you are thinking about getting a Yorkie because they look so adorable and small enough that you can carry them around anywhere, there are some things to know about Yorkies before you bring one home. Actually, it would be a good idea to talk to a Yorkie rescue organization to learn more about this breed. Many dogs that you think you need to buy from a breeder are in shelters because their former owners did not know what goes into caring for that breed.
What are Yorkies like?
According to Michele Welton on Your Pure Bred Puppy, Yorkies is among the most difficult to housebreak. They hate the cold, they hate the rain. Michele suggests a covered potty area. Also think about putting in a doggie door, so your little one can take care of business on his own time. Yorkies are also quick to bark at new sound, new sight. If you live in a noise-restricted building, this is something to think about. It’s a good idea to train your Yorkie as soon as possible.
And Yorkies are not suited for families with young children. They are so small, it’s easy for a running child to accidentally step on the puppy. Yorkies also like to sleep under blankets. It is asking a lot of a child to look under the blanket before they flop down on their bed. It requires a vigilant person who watches every step, every place she sits, to keep a Yorkie safe.
