Though known for their peanut size, Yorkies are in fact little powerhouses. In World War II, a dog named Smokey became one of the most famous Yorkshire Terriers of all time. Adopted by U.S. troops, this tough little dog helped soldiers lay communication lines in the war-torn Philippines. His petite size allowed him to thread the lines through narrow underground passages. After the war, Smokey became a celebrityappearing on television 42 times. Today, Yorkies are common pets that consistently make the American Kennel Clubs Top 10 list of U.S. dogs. Yorkshire Terrier: Tiny but Tough is a narrative treat for dog lovers that includes amazing, real-life stories about these little pups while also recounting the breeds history and its relationship to the animals physical characteristics, personality, and suitability as a pet.
