Because of the strong bonds Yorkies form with their own, Steiff has chosen an especially powerful name for the plush version of this beloved dog: Herkules! With his silky black and gold coat, glistening eyes, and playful expression, this is one adorable puppy. Our designers have made Herkules softly stuffed, delightfully floppy, and irresistibly snuggly. It€™s hard to imagine a more perfect pet!
