Question What type is it?

My husband & I are looking into adopting a pet. We're thinking about getting a small dog. Small enough to have in our apartment and small enough for my daughter to play with. I am very fond of this dog below, however, I have no idea what breed he may be. Is anyone familiar with this?

Yep, most definitally a Yorkshire Terrier. (Or maybe a Silky Terrier.....) But be forewarned: Yorkies are delicate. Especially a pup. I don't know how young your daughter is, but if she is younger than 6 (or doesn't know how to respect a dogs space and how to play very gentley), you might want to rethink getting a Yorkie.

If you aren't worried about price, and if you truly want a SMALL dog, I would go for a miniature yorkshire terrier. My friend has one and it stays as small as a normal size yorkshire terrier pup... about the size in that picture you posted, just a weee bit bigger.

Also, don't know why I didn't post this in the first place, there are plenty of great yorkies in shelters across the United States. I have no clue where you live, but if you go to petfinder.com you can search there for your dog in your state.

You'll probally want to stay away from "mini" anything. HTey are often sickly and probally won't be the best for a kid to play with. Consider something else too if our child is younger than 6/7 especially if they really want a dog to play with. A lot of yorkies I know just are not the playing type.
