Teacup Yorkshire Terriers
When I came across to Teacup Yorkie Dogs website, I fell in love to see how cute they are. When I first saw Bella and Bubby it reminds me of the movie the "Wizard of Oz". Have you seen that movie? Bella and Bubby are teacup Yorkshire terriers. Very small Yorkie are called teacup Yorkie. “Teacup” is a term like unto toy as in poodle. What is Yorkie terriers? Yorkshire terriers were originally cross-bred from other dogs to create a dog that would kill rats. Yorkie used to be called Waterside Terriers, although these dogs were larger than current day Yorkie. The breed standard for a Yorkie is now 3-7 pounds, but the Waterside Yorkie weighed in at 6 to 20 pounds. The Waterside Terrier was a cross between a Black-and-Tan English Terrier and Paisley and Clydesdale Terriers. The AKC or American Kennel Club does not recognize these breeds of dog, although they were not cross-breed did not receive the name Yorkshire terrier until the late 1800’s. These dogs also originated from Scotland and England. The Yorkshire Terrier, however, true to its name originated in Yorkshire.
