Habitat

          One abiotic factor this organism needs to live is a house. They need a house so they stay at a good temperature (100.2-102.8 degrees Fahrenheit) and don't get too hot or too cold. They also need dry food like doggy kibble to eat so they can stay alive.


 

        A Yorkie's life depends on a mutualism relationship with it's owner. The Yorkie gets fed and looked after while the human benefits by gaining a companion. If Yorkie's live in a warm climate they will need to be inside most of the time. When they are outside they need to be in shadows a lot of the time and they need to drink lots of water. If you do live in a warm climate it probably doesn't matter much because, since Yorkie's are pretty much indoor dogs, they would be fine as long as the air conditioning doesn't brake. This animal can not live in solitary because then they would have no one to feed them or take care of them.


           The pointer on the map below marks Yorkshire, London. This is where Yorkie's were first bred. People originally made them to hunt rats. Eventually they became sort of fashion statements. Women would carry them under their arm, in their sleeve or sometimes in their purse. They would also use them as lap dogs when it would get chilly. Today they are especially popular in America and England. But, I'm sure you could get one wherever you live.
