- Despite their thick fur and fluffy coats, they really don’t require regular grooming. They don’t require trimming, but definitely, they need to be brushed. Brushing will keep their coats healthy and shiny, and it also aids in the shedding (because these babies shed!).
- Did you know that Akita puppies are referred to as the Great Japanese Dog, Japanese Akita or American Akita and are renowned for their incredible intelligence? Because they’re so darn smart, they are bored easily so they’ll need constant interaction. Training is an absolute must for them.

They are energetic, and the perfect workout companion for runs. They also happen to require daily exercise, so this is a win-win situation!

Because they are so obedient and loyal, they make excellent guard dogs. They can also live in an apartment or larger home, but they will require regular exercise in order to keep their muscular bodies in shape. Although a small yard would suffice, you will still need to take your Victorian bulldog for walks.
Victorian bulldogs have coats that are solid white, brindle, fawn, or red. They shed an average amount of hair. They don’t require regular grooming, but weekly de-shedding is recommended, especially if you want to keep a good handle on their loose hairs. If you’re not comfortable grooming your dog, take them to a professional groomer. Regarding their baths, they can be bathed up to twice a month. In between those times, pet-friendly wipes will work well.
The Victorian Bulldog is part of the group of dogs that have short and flat snouts, which makes it difficult for them to breathe at times. During the summer, they shouldn’t be left outside for long periods of time. Conversely, they don’t do well in extremely cold weather either. Indoor environments are the best for their comfort, and high temperatures should be avoided at all costs.
Victorian bulldogs are somewhat rare and definitely special! If you’re in the market, contact us today. If we don’t have any currently available, we can discuss other options of getting one for you and your family.
Every time that you see Yorkshire Terrier puppies you fall in love.
At Petland, we understand your adoration 100%, and that’s why we’ve decided to give you some basic information to help you in your decision-making process. We know you’re going to want to purchase one of our Yorkshire terrier puppies after reading this post! You’ve been warned!
Larger Than Life Personalities

They are uniquely charming, intelligent, and extremely cute. They are packed with character that you’ll find endearing and entertaining.
The Yorkshire Terrier originated in Yorkshire, England, during the late 18th century. They belong to the terrier category. The word terrier is rooted from the Latin word “terra,” which means earth or land. Yorkies were referred to as “land dogs.” This was primarily because these particular groups of dogs were bred to clean up rats from English farms, both below and above ground.
Small Dog Syndrome
Yorkies “suffer” from small dog syndrome. You know what that means? It means they think they’re big dogs in a little dog’s body! Yorkies are incredibly brave and courageous. We have to give full disclosure. Yorkies can sometimes be a bit bossy, too. This may be hard to believe, but they make great guard dogs. They will be barking to let you know of any intruders or strangers, but they can’t attack or apprehend a culprit. Because they can be aggressive at times, we recommend that when you purchase one of our Yorkies for sale, you socialize your pup as soon as possible with other dogs.
Yorkies are sweet and energetic. To keep them in their healthiest shape, feed them a nutritious diet and take them for daily walks. You’ll enjoy them as much as they’ll enjoy you. If you have any other questions about our Yorkies for sale, give us a call or come to our store.
