So, what are the reasons we really enjoy them and their company?

Bred for hunting, they have turned into a fashion accessory in the modern age, but their aggressive nature has remained. It is extremely important that you train them in their early stages of life, and show them what they can and mustn’t do. If you don’t act fast they can become very aggressive at a later stage of their life, especially towards other small dogs and while out they can attack other dogs of their size, such as Maltese, among others. Nevertheless, their bravery can come in handy in particular situations, and can even chase away a burglar with their combative and pesky personality.

You just want to make sure your Yorkie likes to wear clothes. So, does it? You can dress it up and down, mix different styles, he can ever get into a tuxedo, for that gala-night. Furthermore, their hair is similar to human hair and you can spend days and nights combing hair and discovering new hairstyles that suit your dog the best.

Your pet dog will just gently crawl onto your lap and offer their service to you. This is one more reason to feel undisputed love towards your favorite pet dog.
