Yorkshire Terrier Temperament

The Yorkshire Terrier is feisty, alert, inquisitive, energetic, determined, brave, bossy, scrappy and boisterous. But he can also be very sweet. He can be described as a little dog with a big personality! He's one of the most popular breeds in the Unite States. He craves close physical contact and affection and will follow you around the home like a shadow. His prey-drive is high and he will chase any little creature that scurries by him. He gets along well with strangers but he can be aggressive with other dogs. He's very affectionate and loves to cuddle and sit on your lap.
