Default Your Yorkie's Personality?

How would you describe your yorkie's personality? I am a first time yorkie owner of T.J. who will be one in February. I have owned all types of breeds of dogs, but never a yorkie. With that said, in the most loving way I can, he is the most ornery, ill mannered (towards others), rotten little thing I've ever wittnessed. Now, I want to follow that up with I am madly in love with this dog as he is me. With me, he is like a little floppy warm water bottle, kisses, loves, plays, etc. It is just that at times I am almost embarrassed of how terrible he is in the company of others. SO, I am wondering if this behavior is somewhat of the norm, or are there sweet, charming yorkies out there? BTW, I wouldn't trade him for one!

Mine are pretty good natured really I dont have any complaints. The only problem I have with them is sometimes they antagonize the cats but its not all the time its like if the cats jump up on the bed at night. They consider that their territory. I dont know how old your pup is but mine are 6 and they do mellow with age

Well, Remy is almost 6 months old. He is demanding or should I say spoiled? If you are sitting he will whine to be picked up. He is a sweetheart though and never meets a stranger. His little butt will just start to wagging as soon as someone wants to pet him. He loves people, other dogs(except our boxer) and he is full of adventure.

They are all sure different. Maxine never liked Children, but she loves the elderly. When we are out in public with her, and little kids walk up and ask if they can pet her, we have to tell them no, but instead to pet her 137 pound Brother, Carlo. A few times holding her while opening the front door, she will lunge out and try to nip the person if she does not recognize them. This is a dog that was heavily socialized as a pup and throughout her life. Even in her travel bag at the airport waiting, if a kid walks buy, she will let out a explosive bark. Well, as explosive as a little Yorkie can sound. They are all different. Funny, the Large GUARDIAN BREED is the mellow one. Thank God I suppose. I just could not imagine Maxines Temperment in Carlo's body.

As others have said, their personalities can be so different. Bullet (my male) is a cuddle bug with my husband and I and is always by our side, but is not particularly friendly with strangers (both human and canine). Rio (my female) is our Walmart greeter - she loves all humans and dogs she comes across, but is very independent and needs her alone time at home!

Well...it is sounding that he really is that rotten. My friends have actually nicknamed T.J. "Chuckie Dog" !

Ellie is stubborn and self-centered. She has to have her way. She is aggressive and always need reminders about what the rules are. She seems to know what she can get away with. She knows what she is doing wrong and knows better, but does it anyway and then runs.

She is the sweetest, most loving cuddly girl with the most personality I have ever seen in a dog.

Zada is sweet as honey to everything breathing!! Azrael keeps her distance from people, but will warm up to some of them eventually. Razael is very friendly but a bit jumpy at times especially noises she doesn't understand, then she barks.

My Cookie is very sure of herself. She is protective of me and her sister Izzy. She will growl at other dogs if she is in my lap. But of all the furbabies that I have had, yorkies are the best!! I love both my babies and they seem to love me. They snuggle with me at night and when we go to bed and they are so happy when I get home!

I would probably have to say that the term for female dog came to be after my Gracie!! Love her to pieces, but "Diva" definitely would describe her (also).
Carly: Love her to pieces too, but..."Odie" - "Dumb Blonde" lol
Harlow: Definitely "Gazelle" - gorgeous in stride (in fact I'm trying to incorporate Gazelle into her registered name)
Issabella: a little young to tell yet, but maybe "Spitfire" would fit
Dos: Lovable Lunk!

I call Buster my goodwill ambassador. He is friendly with people, dogs, cats. He just has a great disposition. The only time he ever growled at another dog was when his girlfurfriend Lola was over. Lola has food aggression issues and I was trying to get a bully stick away from her, at her mother's request, and she growled at me. Well Buster got all upset and barked at her really telling her off and then he came over and licked my nose like mommy are you ok. I tell you I never have felt so loved and defended in my whole life. I still smile every time I think about it. Buster does give me a little attitude if he feels I am not preparing his dinner fast enough or if it is time for bed and I do not immediately go to bed.

It is amazing how different they can be...My little boy, Buzz, is sweet and cuddly and gets along w/every human and every pup...He's kinda laid back, and likes to sleep in late...My little Chorkie, loves all people, but no other pups, but tolerates Buzz & Apple, because they were here, before her lol, but I know she would like to be an only child...lol...Apple loves everybody, and some pups, but she's not a cuddly yorkie...She's fiesty, full of personality, absolutely adorable to look at, and keeps me laughing all day long w/her antics...Yorkies (and chorkies) are a breed unto themself...I've never experienced this kind of relationship w/my canine pals....These guys are tripendicular!

Axel is a male and has a very lovable, he loves to cuddle he sleeps on my chest if I'm on my back and when I turn over I have to give him pillow room, I actually think dh is jealous if he is not between us when he get sleepy he is ready to cuddle...he is sweet, loves other people. Keeps his distance with other dogs. Finally quit chewing on my shoes ha ha! He however, is a little thief! can't trust him out by himself. Can't leave nothing on the end tables of coffee tables. He poops like five times a day! and its hit or miss on the pad! thank god he pee pee's on it. And no matter what I do he just will not pick up his toys! They are spread from one end of the livingroom to the other.
But have to say best dog I have every owned. Here he is, we just enjoy him we call him our hot rod dog! he goes to all the streetrod runs with us. My friends just look at me like really? But I don't care. We have even refused dinner invites, unless they have outside dinning.

Levi is a wild little lover. He has seriously never met a stranger. He is so friendly and social and outgoing. He has his "favorite" buddies but he is always friendly to everyone.

He is very, very active and playful and curious. He just turned three, but there is still something so sweet and puppylike about him. He loves to run around and play and chase and go on adventures. He is very excitable and tends to bark if someone isn't paying attention to him, or if he hears a loud noise outside. He is a wild, funny little man and I just love him to pieces!
