Are Yorkies Hypoallergenic

Yes Yorkshire terriers belong to the list of hypoallergenic breeds since their coat comprises of fine human-like hair and not fur similar to certain other breeds like the Havanese, Maltese, Miniature Schnauzer, and Bichon Frise. Hence, they don’t fall under the category of high shedding breeds, thus releasing lesser number of allergens. No wonder, they are a good match indeed for people allergic to dog hairs.

However, having said this, it is better to remember that no dog is completely hypoallergenic. Hence, brushing your Yorkie regularly to remove any dead hair, and even bathing it when it gets dirty, helps keep its coat clean, eliminating the little chances they have of spreading allergies.
