When I moved in with my Girlfriend she came with a small and furry friend, a toy Yorkshire terrier named 'boo' so with out much further ado I shall review him:-
The Yorkshire terrier first and foremost is an ideal companion for those people who are allergic to dog hair. The Yorkshire terriers fur is closer to human hair and less likely to cause irritation to the skin, throat and chest. This also means they molt (sp?) less which is always a benefit if you have any carpeted areas of the home, as they will require regular but not constant hovering.
Yorkshire terriers are a small breed of dog which also makes them ideal for people living in small houses such as bungalows or flats as they don't take up much space. They do however run around a lot, jump on the furniture and bark at everyone who walks past, this however could once again be my luck and is probably just my dog.
They are a loyal breed, something that he never fails to illustrate on walks attempting to savage anyone who has the audacity to come near you or look at you. For that matter actually just anyone who has the audacity to inhale the same air as him is fair game for a little chase in his mind, and rightly so too, because he is after all spoilt rotten.
So if you like me want to be embarrassed in your local park, irritated by constant barking and woken up every morning by a soggy dog smelling tongue to the fact, get yourself a Yorkshire terrier, you wont regret it.
But in all seriousness, they are a lovely breed of dog and make excellent companions, and despite his minor flaws we still love him very much. Please note this review is only my experience and you should always think long and hard before purchasing a pet as they can live for many years and need a lot of care.
Summary: The best breed of dog for people with alergies and small homes
