Yorkshire Terrier (Belongs to my Mother)

Personally, I would not have a Yorkshire Terrier. This dog is my mother's. She has yet to be house broken - she (most of the time) uses puppy pads, in the house. In fact, I am sure that she waits until she gets into the house and goes straight for the puppy pads. Grooming is a nightmare because she loves to roll in whatever is outside. We've kept her with a short puppy cut in the summer and that does help, somewhat. She also gets sick, frequently, which means quite a few vet bills.

On the plus side, she is very good with children and the other dog in the house. She chases the outdoor cats, but if they turn on her, she'll run the other way. She is a very cute little dog, but she is a lot of work.
