This adorable dog is a result of several terrier crosses made in the mid 19th Century. Scottish workers migrated with their terriers to the Lancaster and adjoining portions of Yorkshire, England for work and the breed was born. Like nearly all the dogs on our list, the Yorkie is considered a ‘toy breed’ by the American Kennel Club. At once adorable and scrappy, the Yorkie has won the hearts of more than ____ Brookfield clients. Unfortunately the breed has also blown some pretty stinky breath in its day. Even the Yorkie Info Center underlines the need for dental care in this breed. Good Yorkie information on Wikipedia as well.
