The Yorkshire terrier has a rich history that is known around the world. They were originally found in the various areas of England where people gathered for work. As people relocated to the area they brought along their dogs that were a variety of different breeds.
What many people don’t realize is that those early Yorkshire terrier dogs were much bigger than what we know today. They weren’t beloved pets like they are today either.
Instead their job was to hunt and kill the rats that were found in the work place and along the streets.
It was over a period of several decades that the various other breeds of dogs making up the Yorkies were weeded out. Breeders were very careful to keep the traits they really wanted to see continue in the puppies. As a result the breed we know today as the Yorkshire terrier emerged.
It is quite interesting to look at Yorkies pics from those early days until now. You will certainly notice quite a few differences between them. However, you will also find many similarities that continue to be part of the Yorkshire terrier history today as well.
These Yorkshire terrier images can certainly peak your interest into getting one of them for yourself someday.
The Yorkshire terrier history took a turn for the better when it was introduced in the United States. This was in the early 1870’s. From here it was in high demand and then found its way into various dog shows. Today it is recognized by the AKC and is one of the most popular breeds of dogs in all of the world.
