Yorkshire Terrier Information
The Yorkshire Terrier is tolerant of older children, provided they respect its personal space. Due to its small size and bold temperament (which arises from its working origins) the Yorkshire Terrier is not recommended for young children unless carefully supervised.

Yorkies prefer life indoors, and are especially unsuited to cold climates.
