A relative of mine who was visiting from Chicago recently surprised me by bringing her Yorkie with here everywhere. My relative had her dog prescribed to her for depression. As a licensed service dog, her little Yorkie has the same "rights" as a dog who assists the blind.
And while I hear you that pit bulls, rottweilers, and poodles (did you mean the big ones?), in tight spaces like coffee shops create genuine fear in those around them, I would like to add that Yorkies can be surprisingly vicious little doggies as well. This one growls and snarls at anything that comes within a foot or two of it and had bitten my relative several times. It hasn't yet bitten anyone in public, but I wonder want the consequences of that coudl be. That said, my relative loves the little devil dog with her whole heart and saving it from the Yorkie Rescue Society has truly been beneficial for her depression. Chew on that.
(sorry couldn't resist the pun)
