Yorkies in New York
According to the New York Times, the beloved Yorkie, aka the Yorkshire Terrier, is the number 1 dog in New York City as of 2016. Here at The Scholz Team, we certainly understand why. Yorkies are highly intelligent, independent, and courageous -- all good traits to have to make it in the city. Of course, size helps the Yorkie too- they're great for small apartments and easy to carry in a bag or otherwise.
The Shih Tzu was second followed by the Labrador, the top large breed dog, and fourth the Chihuahua.
