I always just assumed it was an oopsies on Ganz part. I call it a maltise LOL. Hope they do come out with an actual yorkie. They'd probably call it "american yorkie". ROFL

Those are the ONLY ones that I know of that could or would have a PINK yorkie.

I used to work with yorkies, and my sister grooms dogs, has for well over 20 years....I have even jokingly told her I was going to dye my cat's (they are pure white) hair "tye dyed" just for fun....I mean, I told her if they can have a white dog with a pink saddle area and call it a YORKIE...than I can tye dye my cats and send the pic to ganz and tell them to make a cat like that....

Oh my gosh- DO IT!! LOL I love the idea of a tie-dye cat! They have a frog, the just have to do the cat a little better- with the turquoise-y blues and reds and purples most people associate with tie-dye. Has to have long fluffy hair like the persian too- not that stringy stuff. o.O I really have the urge to actually go tie dye my persian webkinz myself now!Here kittykittykitty....

I've always thought the white "Yorkie" was really a West Highland Terrier.

I am pretty sure that there are some yorkies that are white (Probably not pink on their back, though) so they are not entirely wrong, but the Dark brown/black yorkies are definately more common and popular. I like the yorkies just like your picture and I hope Ganz will make plushies of those yorkies.

See thats what I thought at first too, but now I think the Yorkie is a Maltese, and the White Terrier is the Westie. ^_^

Default Re: Why does the yorkie......

I was very disappointed in the Yorkie. I love yorkies. I used to raise them. I had long hair and short hair yorkies....none of them were ever white! I would love for them to have one that is somewhat true to real. My guess is that when they named it, they were not familiar with the types of small breed dogs.

I don't really know. It is a little strange.

But Webkinz target is little kids. And most of them don't really care too much if it looks like the real thing or not.
