My Yorkies


AS of now, September 2014, I will not be having anymore litters or studding out my boy,Petey.  Thank you to all who have followed me and purchased my puppies. You never know what will happen in the future, but as of now, my yorkie babies are fixed.
Welcome to my website.  As you can see it is forever a work in progress.  Feel free to leave comments.  Enjoy! =:)

Yorkshire Terriers are my passion.  I have a small home breeding program.  I own three yorkies at the moment.  My beautiful  ladies Bell and Lilly. My handsome little Stud Petey.  My adults and my puppies are always in my home, they are not kept in kennels. (I do have a kennel, but it is left open and the three go in and out like it is their home.  The only time it is used is when I do not want a litter and one of the girls are in heat).  They share my home, my bed, and my heart.
They are as much a part of my family as my own children. (my children would say maybe even more)

  All the puppies were born and raised healthy. All have found their forever homes and are making people happy.  I do not breed for
teeny dogs, I do not believe in teacup yorkies, I feel that the "teacup" term was made up by a careless breeder looking to make a ton of money. There is only one breed of Yorkshire Terrier and that is standard.  I try to breed for the standard size, which is 4 to 7 pounds.  Sometimes I will have smaller ones and sometimes I will get a larger one.  All my dogs and puppies are registered with The American Kennel Club (AKC).  All come with a Health Certificate from my Veterinarian, first set of vaccinations and deworming. ( to date none of my puppies were ever born with worms, we do the deworming only as a precaution) If interested in a puppy from a future litter, you might consider putting your name on the waiting list. Just email me and we can talk about any future litters and what exactly you are looking for.

Please take time to watch this video clip, the reason why we should purchase a puppy from a reputable breeder, rather then a pet store, or broker.

My Yorkie Family:

A bit of information about my group.  First,  by no means is either of my girls small.  Bell has long legs and is tall. She was my 1st Yorkshire Terrier, Born 1/27/2003 She weighs in around 8lbs.   I like having my girls a bit bigger, less problems with pregnancy and whelping.  Lilly, born on June 27, 2005 is Bell's daughter from her 1st litter.  Lilly weighs around  9 lbs.  Lilly loves to eat!  The biggest yorkie in Lilly's family history is her mother.    If I did a better job of restricting what Lilly eats I know she would be in the 7-8 lb range. But having three dogs, two that are picky eaters and 1 who loves to eat makes it difficult to restrict her. 

Petey (Sir Peter Pan Amore)Born July 24, 2005, weighs in at 4.3 lbs.  He throws small puppies.   When Bell's first litter was bigger then I was hoping for, I decided to buy my own male.  I searched for Petey for many months.  I wanted him to be Black and Gold, good genes and must be small.  Petey is everything I was looking for.

You can generally tell what a puppy will weigh as an adult by using the Yorkshire Terrier Puppy Weigh Chart. See Chart below. 
These weights are not guaranteed, they are just an estimate, I will not guarantee a  puppies weight. (be cautious of a breeder that will guarantee a puppy's weight or color.)
Please just use the chart just as a guide line.

To date I have only had two of my puppies bigger then standard.  But the people who purchased them were told before hand that they were off the weight charts!  They are both beautiful male Yorkshire Terriers with a gorgeous coat, but they are bigger. (around 9 lbs)

Update on Lilly: Lilly is on a diet, but as we all know diets are slow going and she is having a problem losing her last pregnancy weight.  =:)








Weight Chart

This chart is in ounces, There are 16 ounces in a pound.  Convert your puppies weight to ounces, then find his/her weight, line it up with their age in weeks and follow to the bottom. My puppies tend to be a little heavier when they hit 6 to 8 weeks old, then what is stated here, but usually end up right on track.

Yorkies and Children

Yorkshire Terriers are small dogs, like I said the standard is 4 to 7 lbs.  If you think about it, that is really small.  I do not recommend that people with very young children get a yorkie.  Even though Yorkshire terriers are good, friendly, smart, and non shedding, they are not a hardy dog. Meaning that small children can hurt them easily.  But, If after reading this, you still have your heart on a yorkie and you do have children, why not consider buying a puppy that will be a bit larger.
