4. Yorkshire Terrier: Long Haired Dog Breed
Yorkies may be official members of the Toy Group, but they’re naturally brave, determined and energetic, according to the AKC, and have the demeanor of a dog with a larger stature. The breed was known as a companion animal of high society European families and was prized for its long, silky blue and tan coat.
Yorkies are bold, curious and always ready for adventure, according to petMD. They can be stubborn and assertive to small or unfamiliar dogs and make excellent watchdogs. Their coats, which are often floor-length for dog competitions, can be prone to tangles or catching debris if kept long. They should be brushed or combed every other day, according to petMD.
