The ancestors of Yorkshire were slightly larger than the modern individuals, but still miniature compared to other terriers and the rest of the four-legged in England. This is explained very simply. Up until the nineteenth century, the English peasants were not allowed to breed large dogs in order to prevent poaching in the lands of the nobility.

Yorks guarded the yard, exterminated rats and other pests, and even participated in the hunt. Since then, the Yorkshire terriers and got a bold character and active temperament. By the middle of the 19th century, the ban on the maintenance of large breeds was abolished, and interest in miniature ones increased. Then the story of the Yorkshire Terrier began.

A new wave of interest in the Yorks began after the Second World War. It is associated with the dog Smokey, who participated in hostilities with his master. After the Smoky military history was told on television and printed in newspapers, the Yorkshire Terriers gained unprecedented fame.

Today it is one of the most popular breeds.
