TEACUP YORKIE – Yorkshire, Northern England
Normally Teacup puppies and Teacup dogs are to be just companion pets, but in the case of the Yorkshire, Teacup breeds their original purpose was different. Produced during the 19th century a rat catcher in Yorkshire, England mills the dog, but eventually, people found out that it can be an excellent pet. A look at Teacup dog breeds list shows that most dogs have one progenitor; however the Yorkshire has three different ancestors.
During its, early days of existence, any dog that has the shape of Terrier with a long coat that has the color of blue along with fawn and silver head, as well as legs mixed with tall trimmed ears, is considered a Yorkshire. But in the latter years of the 1860s a woman named Mary Ann Foster, who owned a Yorkshire Terrier named “Huddersfield Ben” brought her pet to several dog shows, became famous. The result of this popularity is that Huddersfield Ben’s breed type became the defined measuring standard for the Yorkies small dogs.
A Yorkies’ dominant physical trait is their coat. A significant emphasis is placed on the quality, color and texture of their coat. (Note that this also applies to Yorkshire Teacup puppies.) The color of the coat should be dark gray to black. Hair must be bright, rich tan with dark roots in its head, legs and high chest. Some dogs have extra fine or wooly coats. Because of their long-haired coat Yorkies, need regular brushing to prevent knotting. To give the dog more ease in moving and have a neater appearance some dog owners trim their fur.
