The Yorkshire Terrier are unusually thought of as a soft breed but they come from sturdy working class stock and still hunt vermin down today. They evolved from the English county of Yorkshire hence their name.
An interesting fact is that the puppies are born all black and their tan marking develop later, usually after their 3 months plus. Their coat requires considerable care to keep neatly groomed, a consideration if you're thinking of a Yorkie.
I kept mine clipped fairly short on a regular basis, not a common practice but he was more comfortable and it cut down on grooming time, he wasn't a show dog and had quite a few health problems so it was easier all around.

This picture is one of the dogs I rescued some time back, this is Buddy, he's a little messy but he had a very hard life before he made his way to our shelter, when he arrived he was so matted he couldn't even walk. (He is a Yorkshire Terrier)
The poor guy was very mistreated but enjoyed his last few years at our house were he was well cared for, he has since passed away but I'll always remember 'little bud'.
