BREED PERSONALITY/CHARACTERISTICS/   TEMPERMENT
(2).The Yorkshire Terrier is a lovely small “lap dog” and prefers to be around you most of the time. They are a true little Terrier and a loyal companion. Most Yorkshire Terriers are alert, active and inquisitive. In   some cases they can be determined with a mind of their own but are faithful and loyal to their human family. They thrive on human companionship and will happily be included in family activities. They have a sense of fun and enjoy a game. Thanks to their alertness, they make good watchdogs and will bark if   strangers approach the home. Although they are of small stature, they are generally a robust and healthy little terrier.
They have the courage of a large dog but are small. Yorkshire Terriers have a coat that does not shed and are therefore a hypoallergenic (low allergy causing) breed. They love comfort and snuggling on soft pillows or on your lap. Yorkie's have hair not coats and therefore their hair is not weather resistant like some other breeds. Yorkshire Terriers should live indoors with some periods outside for exercise. They are ideal for apartment living or homes with small backyards.  Surprisingly, this fashionable little breed is over a hundred years old.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: The Silky is not suited as an outdoor dog.

Ideal   owner/s: Those who require a family companion and are prepared to have the dog living indoors and sometimes during the day in a   enclosed back-yard . When you select your puppy, you will have   spent quite some time considering exactly what breed of puppy you should buy. What size would best fit in with your household, how much exercise space and time the dog will receive, how much he will cost to feed, house and keep in good health and condition etc. . Having taken all of this into account you can now go and buy a puppy.

2).   Dog or Bitch?  The choice between dog and bitch is also of preference.
If you made the decision to buy this little tough ( Aussie) Australian Silky Terrier is the right family toy dog made for Australian conditions. The Silky Terrier is more suitable to the Australian climate and is generally, much easier to handle . They are a hardy, non-shedding odorless popular house pets.
The Australian Silky Terrier is friendly to all the family but will usually attach itself to one member. It will love children if raised with them, but it   doesn't enjoy being fussed over or being treated like a toy and prefers to be treated as an equal.
Like most long coated dogs, the Silky loves being groomed, provided this procedure is started at a very early age. The amount of grooming required is dependent on the actual length of coat your Silky   has inherited. If you can’t commit to the grooming (brushing), frequently trimming to keep the coat short in an alternative. See picture: * Trimmed

CARE REQUIREMENTS
Benefit of the Toy breed.
The Yorkshire Terrier has very fine hair. It is similar to human   hair and does not shed like most other breeds .The   Yorkshire Terrier's coat will generally grow to the ground and   needs to be brushed and combed every day to keep it free of   tangles. The hair on the head needs to be tied up in a ponytail   with a rubber band or bow to keep it out of the eyes. If a   person doesn't show their dog and wants less work there are easy   ways to keep your Yorky looking good by shortening (cutting) its   hair or giving it a Silky trim.

IDEAL OWNER'S
The Yorkshire Terrier is suitable for people of all ages. It is a good little family dog but needs supervision around young children. This is because a young child could easily unintentionally injure a Yorkshire Terrier. The most important issue when considering owning a Yorkshire Terrier is whether you have adequate time to look after and socialize the dog. Like most dogs, it is not good for a Yorkshire Terrier's temperament, to be left alone for long periods of time. If everyone in the household is away from 9am to 5pm then it is best to get 2 dogs so that they have company and wont get up to mischief.
