Hypoglycemia, low blood sugar, is a disorder that occurs mainly in small breed puppies between six and twelve weeks of age. It is often precipitated by stress and can occur without warning (if the puppy is susceptible). It might appear after the puppy misses a meal, chills, becomes exhausted from playing, or has a digestive upset. These upsets place an added strain on it's energy reserves and bring on the symptoms.

Hypoglycemia is a real threat to these tiny puppies, watch for your puppy to become tired or droopy. The first signs are those of listlessness and depression. They are followed by muscular weakness, tremors, and later convulsions, coma and even death. The puppy may appear depressed or may be weak, wobbly and jerky, or the puppy may be found in a coma.

If your puppy has any symptoms of hypoglycemia you must act fast. If the puppy is awake, give it Nutrical, or Karo syrup by mouth. You should see signs of improvement in thirty minutes. If no improvement, then call your veterinarian. If the puppy is unconscious it should be taken to the veterinarian at once.



Prevent Hypoglycemia from happening by allowing only twenty minutes of play at a time, followed by rest or sleep. Do not allow the puppy to overtire at first. Supervise closely with children to make sure puppy is getting enough rest. Keep puppy warm, don't let it become chilled. Your Yorkie puppy is a house dog and should not be living outdoors.
 


Prevent attacks by feeding a high quality kibble diet. We use and recommend Royal Canin for Yorkshire Terrier Puppies # 29. See that puppy eats at least every six to eight hours. More often if he is very small. Keep dry food and water available at all times. You can give 1/4 teaspoon of Nutrical or Karo syrup morning and night for the first couple of days to help prevent the low blood sugar that can come with the excitement and stress of going to a new home.

History of the Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkies are a "man made" breed that originated in the Yorkshire area of England early in the 19th century. Several different dog breeds were bred together to create a small terrier that could kill vermin, like rats.

Although differences of opinion exist, it is generally thought that larger terrier dogs with different colors and textures of coats were used to develop the yorkie breed. This mix of coat colors and textures may account for the difference in coat types and colors that we have today in the breed. Coat color can range from light silver to blue to black.

Early yorkies lived with the working man of England where being small was an advantage since small dogs eat less and could be kept less expensively.

However, since larger dogs were used to develop the breed there are still larger yorkies being born today. Yorkie weights range between 3 and 12 lbs although some people live with smaller and larger dogs. Show dogs must not exceed 7 lbs.

It is not recommended that the tiny yorkies not live with small children as they are very fragile and can be easily injured.

Yorkies have a non-shedding coat that is hypo-allergenic. People with allergies and asthma can frequently keep yorkies as they have hair like people instead of fur. They are easy to keep clean and don't have that "doggy odor" that other dogs can get. Yorkies are beautiful in their long flowing coat and if you don't have the time to keep them in the long coat they look really cute in a puppy cut or a modified snauzer or westie cut.

As smaller dogs, yorkies have smaller exercise needs and can get enough exercise in an apartment or condo. This is ideal for the elderly or homebound person.

Yorkies think they should always be near you. They like to sit in your lap while you watch TV, sleep with you at night, and will lay by your feet if you can't hold them. They may be small but are capable of jumping into your lap and bed if they want to. The Yorkshire Terrier is an active beautiful companion.

Don't be fooled, you don't own them - they own you.

They are classified as toy dogs but have retained their terrier temperaments and personalities. Yorkies are self confident and not intimidated by anyone or anything. This frequently gets them into trouble. Yorkies think they are the big dogs on the block and this can be dangerous if they decide to scrap with the wrong dog. Many yorkies are injured every year due to their fearlessness.


However, for the most part, yorkies get along with compatible dogs. Yorkies love to play and are very friendly to people. They love to be the center of attention, they seem to say "look at me, aren't I beautiful".

Yorkies love to travel, and can easily be taken along. Being very intelligent dogs, yorkies can learn anything they want to and easily adapt to change. Being so smart, they can be trained to potty outside or inside on papers or the newer wee-wee pads.


Yorkies usually get along with, and play very well with other yorkies. It's great fun to see two of them playing together and sleeping together. If you have two, there is one to warm mom's lap and one to warm dad's lap.
