The popular Yorkshire Terrier is perfectly suited for apartment-life. It is a jolly, fun, and energetic dog, with a fiery temperament. Despite its size it is a dominant dog, which means that it is hard for it to coexist peacefully with other animals, as it likes to receive all of the attention. It can become aggressive even toward animals it encounters outside its home, during its daily walks for example. It is wary of strangers and barks persistently when it detects an unfamiliar presence. It is not recommended for small children, but older children it gets along very well with.
