My family received two Yorkshire Terriers when I was a teenager. One was named Rocky and the other Max. They were from the same litter and both male. Aside from that one similarity, the dogs could not have been more different.

Rocky was a high-strung, anxious ball of energy. Max was lethargic and simple. Rocky weighed approximately 7 pounds, whereas Max weighed approximately 14 pounds, quite big for a Yorkie.

Rocky passed away from bladder cancer just over a year ago, and Max is still alive and going strong. They are great companions if the constant barking does not bother you. They are very attached to their owners and are completely loyal dogs.
