It’s important to note that these are generalizations on Yorkies. Every Yorkie will have its own personality and quirks that may not fit these generalizations.
This is just a guide to help you get started.
There is a misconception that female Yorkies are more loving and affectionate than male Yorkies. This could be no further from the truth. Male Yorkies are just as likely to be affectionate and attached cuddle bugs as their female counterparts. Don’t let those rumors stop you from considering a male Yorkie!
There are a few traits that make a male Yorkie. For one thing, a male Yorkie may attempt to make themselves the head of the house more than female ones. This dominance behavior is seen in both sexes of dog, but boys tend to be more gung-ho about it. There’s no need to worry though! If you establish yourself in the beginning as the head honcho and do not let your dog rule the roost the problem can be minimized!
Male Yorkies also do a lot more marking than female Yorkies. Marking is not done to empty a bladder, but in order for other dogs to know who has been there. Female Yorkies do mark, much to the surprise of many, but male Yorkies do it much more.
Male Yorkies also tend to be less aloof than female Yorkies. They are likely to always want your attention and affection.
