This Yorkshire Terrier Dog Door Knocker from Michael Healy comes in a bronze finish.
The Yorkshire Terrier Dog Knocker was designed by Michael Healy, an accomplished Rhode Island artisan known for his Unique Door Knockers. When Michael first heard the history of this unique breed, he was intrigued. In the wake of the Industrial Revolution in the mid-19th Century, many miners and textile workers were forced to leave Scotland to find work in northern England. With low pay and harsh living conditions, many miners took to poaching rabbits as a source of food. It is believed that the Yorkie was developed by crossing various English and Scottish Terrier breeds, giving the poachers a small dog that was ideal for chasing out rabbits. The father of the modern Yorkie was Huddersfield Ben, born in the town of Yorkshire in 1865. He was famous for his success in rat killing contests and dog shows throughout England.
