Yorkies might be tiny, but they have big social circles.
They get along well with other dogs, pets, and even children. However, on the rare occasion – Yorkies sometimes do better in a home without children.
The reasons for this are that Yorkies are basically children themselves, and human children can be easily agitated by a child who doesn’t treat them well.
Don’t be fooled by their size—Yorkies have a keen sense of hearing and are quick to alert their owners about any potential intruders.
Their protective nature makes them excellent watchdogs, ensuring you always feel safe.
That being said, Yorkies do tend to get carried away with their big loud weapon of their bark.
