The one thing that irritates me about this POTM is that Webkinz got that dog breed wrong. That is NOT a "Yorkie" that is a Maltese!
I used to groom show Yorkies and this is the AKC breed standards for a Yorkie (Yorkshire Terrier).
Colors
Puppies are born black and tan and are normally darker in body color, showing an intermingling of black hair in the tan until they are matured. Color of hair on body and richness of tan on head and legs are of prime importance in adult dogs, to which the following color requirements apply: BLUE: Is a dark steel-blue, not a silver-blue and not mingled with fawn, bronzy or black hairs. TAN: All tan hair is darker at the roots than in the middle, shading to still lighter tan at the tips. There should be no sooty or black hair intermingled with any of the tan.
Color on Body
The blue extends over the body from back of neck to root of tail. Hair on tail is a darker blue, especially at end of tail.
Headfall
A rich golden tan, deeper in color at sides of head, at ear roots and on the muzzle, with ears a deep rich tan. Tan color should not extend down on back of neck.
Chest and Legs
A bright, rich tan, not extending above the elbow on the forelegs nor above the stifle on the hind legs.

Here is what a Yorkie is supposed to look like...

This is a Maltese...

I wish that Webkinz would have named the breed correctly. I would soooo have bought a webbie that looked like a real Yorkie. I like the coat colors on that breed. If you are going to make a webbie with a specific breed name at least try to make it conform to breed standards... like they did with the German Shep, Husky, the Rottie and so on.

I agree with Honey2800. My mom has had 2 yorkies and my brother has one. I don't believe there is any such thing as a white yorkie. And I'm also sure that they don't have a pink stripe on their back. I would have bought a yorkie if it had looked like a real one. I don't like this webbie at all. I would love to have the pet of the month, but this is probably my least favorite webbie (I also don't care for the snakes), and I don't think I would ever buy one. There are so many more I would buy first.

GO Honey2800! I've always called that pet a Maltese, rather than a Yorkie! Ganz should do full research before they release a new pet.

I do love my Maltese, though, they're cute in virtual form.
