The Yorkshire terrier, playfully referred to as the “Yorkie”, originates from Yorkshire, England and is a member of the toy breed. One of the smallest dog breeds in the world, these dogs are typically long haired with a bluish and tan color. The coat parts down the middle of the back and falls straight and limp to the sides. Yorkie dog names tend to reflect several aspects of the breed’s size and personality traits. These little dogs are spunky and tend to act very independent, though they are also needy of attention and are excellent lap dogs.
Because of their size, Yorkies are often carried around by the owner, and people enjoy doting on them. Yorkie dog names are often chosen because of the diminutive size of the breed, either choosing a rough and tumble name as an oxymoron or choosing something cute and delicate to reflect the nature of this dog. In other cases, Yorkie dog names are chosen to reflect the hyperactive and energetic tendencies of the breed, as well their attempt at independence.
