How to Care for your Yorkshire Terrier
The Yorkie dose require some time to properly care for them, they need baths and there hair combed and brushed on a regular bases. they need to go to the groomer and have there hair trimmed to assure good hygiene.Keep the hair around the eyes, trimmed so mucus wont be a problem, and if your Yorkie dose get some mucus in the corner of its eyes, be sure to take a cloth, and wet it with warm water and wipe it out then dry it so the eyes wont get infected. Keep the ears trimmed at the tips so they wont weigh the ears down before they are fully developed.
