Comment Ziggy a-t-il rejoint votre famille ?

Art (her husband) and I knew we wanted a dog, but weren’t sure which type to get. So we went to the Westminster Dog Show to see all the various breeds and picked a few to to go back home and research.

sports activities.

We were primarily looking for a small dog that was easy to travel with. On a trip in the South of France, we were sitting in an outdoor cafe, saw a Yorkie and loved his good demeanor, look and size. So when we got back to Manhattan, we started looking around for one, but didn’t find the right dog. Then on a trip to Colorado, we made some appointments with some breeders out there.

Art’s mom said to “go for the one that comes to you”, but at the first breeder’s home, all the dogs came running to them. Ziggy, the runt of the liter, somehow caught their attention with his playful, calm personality and when they went to go to the next breeder, Ziggy came down the stairs after them.

The next breeder had their dogs in horrible, dirty conditions and the last breeder’s dogs were a bit too young. So they went back and picked up Ziggy – he was “the one”.

Ziggy was such a curious little guy that zig-zagged from place to place sniffing and marking his spot. And that’s how they came up with his name. They bought a travel bag for him, which he still uses to this day. They were also very fortunate because at 8 weeks old, he was already trained to do his “business” outside.

What are some of Ziggy’s favorite things to do?

He’s fifteen now and has slowed down, but in his prime he loved to play fetch and frisbee. He has a hard time seeing now, so we got a glow in the dark ball that’s easier for him to see. Ziggy also has a stuffed toy dog which they call his “girlfriend”.

Des conseils pour les propriétaires potentiels de Yorkie ?

Yorkies are not all yappers. We trained Ziggy to only bark when he needs something, like water. He’s very smart and protective. We found Ziggy to be easily trainable and took him to some group classes when he was a puppy.

Aujourd'hui, Naomi Watts, Natalie Portman et Serena Williams ont toutes des Yorkies, pour n'en citer que quelques-unes.

  1. Bonjour à tous !

    That is what my Human had in mind when she and my Human Papa picked me, a 100 lb Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Seems they’ve always had retrievers and their Chessie had passed over the Rainbow, so the Yorkie lost and I WON! I admit, it is difficult to find a nice place to stay with a dog as big as I am. Most pet friendly places have a weight limit and I don’t qualify, but the Yorkie! Sigh…I get left behind lots of times because of my size.

  2. What a great interview! Ziggy sounds like a terrific dog who is living large! I love that photo of him looking out the airplane window, that’s so sweet.

  3. Les Yorkies sont toujours super mignons, mais si petits. Maman aime les gros chiens et dit que nous sommes presque trop petits avec nos 40 livres. Nous avons aussi quelques amis yorkshires.
