Standing nose-to-nose on the tiny chart with the Chihuahua is this spunky breed, the Yorkshire terrier. AKA Yorkie is a popular choice among people who like smart and trainable pint-sized pooches with huge personalities. These tiny cuties average 11–15 years of sassy playfulness and oodles of affection.
