    Billy is one of a bonded pair of dogs that I have had since he was 4 months old. He is a Yorkie and will be 6 yrs. old in July. He has always been a bit skittish and fearful of strangers so it would be nice he and his brother Oliver could be adopted together and not split up. He is not the dominant one of the two. He will however engage with Oliver if he wants something that Oliver has which can be a toy or a rawhide chew bone. Billy thinks EVERYTHING belongs to him even if I give them each the same thing he wants Oliver's bone or toy also. They play fight together but sometimes they get a little rough with each other and I have to break it ... (Read More)up. They are currently on my bed calmly looking out a window for something to bark at and will get nuts when they see another dog(s) outside. They will start barking and race into the living, jump up on the sofa and continuing barking until the dog(s) are out of their site. The neighbor kids make them crazy also particularly when they are playing outside in front of my house or just going by it. I have a fenced in back yard and they love to be out running back and forth barking at anything and everything. I live on a corner across from a city park so a lot of activity going on. I monitor their time out (usually about 10 minutes) particularly when it is warm out as they don't have sense enough to come back in the house without me making them do so. Willy is very stubborn and rarely wants to come in without me yelling his name or doing hand jesters. He will just look at me. Oliver is a little better pending a dog is not going by the fence. They are for the most part potty trained to go outside. Oliver will pace back and forth by the back door and Willy comes to get me and responds to the question do you have to go potty and races for the kitchen and stands/sits/lays down by the back door. Neither of them can be trusted to not potty in the house if you leave them alone. I set up a child's gate to block off the kitchen from the rest of the house. I put down newspaper for them to go on. However, Willy sometimes lifts his leg and misses the paper. It's hard to explain. Willy was lifting his leg when I bought him and the breeder did not start any potty training with him. She said she let her other dogs do the training. Willy also has a very voracious appetite and has to be monitored when eating. I've never had a dog who is never full after he eats. Not sure if it was because there were so many other dogs in the house where I got him. He should weigh around 7 lbs. but he is way over that. I used be able to walk him and Oliver but I haven't been able to for several years. Oliver is a Yorkie mix breed of what I don't know. His eyes bug out and he has long skinny legs. The front legs are shorter in the front and longer in the back. He will be 7 years old in July and is about 6 lbs. He is VERY pokey when it comes to eating. He was 4 months old when I got him and scrawny. He waits for Willy to start eating before he will eat and even then it's like pulling teeth. It can be a long drawn out process so requires ALOT of patience. I can't just set their food down for them to eat because if Oliver doesn't eat right away and I am not paying attention Willy will eat Oliver's food. Both dogs have sensitive stomachs and will throw up a foamy yellow substance if their stomachs get too empty. Oliver is the worst but both will eat shortly after they barf. Twice a day I feed them BilJac for sensitive stomachs. It's a dry food and I order it through Petsmarts Website because the Petsmart that is closet to me doesn't carry the small bags. They have both had a lot of teeth removed but it is easy for them to chew the BilJac. I tried them on prescription canned food but it was too rich. It gave them diarrhea and made them barf. I also boil hamburger and mix it together with white rice. Then I put the mixture of the two in snack bags and freeze them. They usually get that for breakfast and or when they are sick. The first Biljac feeding is late afternoon and the second late evening. They like cooked peas and egg white. If I'm having porkloin or chicken for supper I will mix a little in with the Biljac. Oliver eats a little faster with a little meat mixed in. I started them on their heartworm medication but of course it upsets their stomachs. It's best to cut it into pieces and give it to them after they have had the first meal of Biljac. They will still barf within a couple of date after eating it but that's just the way it is. Oliver has a collapsing windpipe so can easily aspirate for what ever reason. It like when a person swallows the wrong way and you are choking and gasping for air. You just need to wrap him up with a blanket and or pat him on his back and carry him around until stops. He usually lets out a burp and he's okay. It just causes him to panic like a person would. I am a retired Nurse so I have learned not to over react with him and stay calm. More to say but out of room. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in Minnesota
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in Minnesota if they match your IifestyIe. The Yorkshire Terrier is a cute, spunky little dog with a true Terrier temperament. Yorkies can be dog aggressive and wary of strangers. Yorkshire Terriers are loving and devoted to their people and do fine with children who respect them. Yorkies respond well to firm, consistent obedience training but may require patience when housebreaking. They do fine in an apartment but need to play and be taken on a daily walk.
