The “Yorkie” was developed in the 19th century, in the county of Yorkshire, England.It was used to catch rats in clothing mills, and also for rat-baiting.
Its defining features are its size,(3-10lbs) and its gray, black,and tan coat. Importance is placed on coat colour, quality, and texture.The hair must be glossy, fine, straight, and silky. Traditionally the coat is grown-out long and is parted down the middle of the back, and “must never impede movement.”
