Yorkshire terrier Description
  The Yorkshire Terrier has an ultra long, fine, silky coat that parts along the spine and falls straight down on either side. Owners that do not show the dog will usually go for the shaggy look. It has a flat head, medium-sized muzzle, a black nose and regular teeth. It has extremely vivacious eyes and the v-shaped ears are erect or semi-erect. Its tail is docked to medium-length and carried level with its back. Its limbs are straight with round feet and black nails. Because the hair on the head is so abundant, it is almost always necessary to gather it in a band to keep from going into the dog's food bowl and give the dog maximum visibility. Some owners may choose to trim the hair on top of the head.
