Alert, intelligent little terrier.

The history of the Yorkie begins in the early 19th century when English miners wanted to create small dogs to hunt rats and other animals in the mine tunnels. Others say that terrier hunting dogs followed Scottish weavers to the north of England.
There they crossed with other small breeds and so the workers, who wanted small dogs for their small cottages to live with and to control rodents, created the Yorkshire Terrier, now a "parlour dog" and a great companion.
