A Yorkie should have a confident manner and give the appearance of vigor and self-confidence. He is proud and bold-not intimidated. He knows what he wants and how to obtain it. This bold attitude can be seen in his proud head carriage, erect ears, tail up, eyes sparkling-aware of his surroundings. A Yorkies is loyal-a devoted companion, as well as protective of his family and surroundings. You may think you own him-but he really owns you-and your house, your car, and your favorite chair! If placed in a new situation, he will adjust easily. The adaptability is a unique part of his temperament. A Yorkie is truly a big dog in a small package. Yorkies are addictive-once you own one you will never be without one!
