My love affair of yorkies started in the summer of 2007. I had just lost my childhood baby of 15 years, a Shih Tzu named Brentley, and could not bear the thought of owning the same breed so I sought out another toy breed and fell head over heels for the Yorkshire Terrier. Growing up on a farm and raising working dogs with my grandparents instilled a love for breeding and animals in me. It wasn't long before my sheer love of the breed made me want to be a Yorkie breeder. My first litter of Yorkshire Terriers was born in 2009.
Little did I realize just how addicted I would become to putting smiles on new families' faces by sharing my babies with them.
Over the years I have improved my lines to include the most baby-doll faced, compact bodied, and exotic colors I can find. Originally, I bred only traditional colored yorkies, but with a background in biology and genetics it was no surprise that I fell head over heels again for yorkies of color, and began adding color to my program in 2015.
Though my favorite colors are the dark traditional (black and tan), dark parti, and bitter chocolate, I offer yorkies of all AKC accepted colors. To be clear, AKC accepts colored yorkies for registration and agility, but unfortunately does not allow them in the show ring...yet. I have high hopes that they will soon.
My yorkies meet the breed standard set forth by the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America (YTCA) and AKC (minus color) and are the highest quality that you can find.
Raising yorkies is not just a hobby for me, it is my passion. I put my whole heart, soul, and energy into each baby that I bring into this world. I have done extensive research and purchased my lines from the highest respected breeders in the business. Though most of my dogs are of my own breeding, I will always be grateful for the breeders who entrusted me with their legacy.
I am extremely picky when it comes to the health of my puppies. Each of my adults is tested rigorously for genetic disease including PRCD, DM, and PLL as well as other uncommon diseases and health screened yearly for heart, liver, and kidney function , as well as patellar luxation to ensure they are in pristine health. My passion is to raise only the best, healthiest, well-bred, baby-doll faced, compact bodied, tiny, beautiful yorkies with bold, loving, loyal personalities. I do not breed unhealthy dogs or dogs outside of weight requirement, nor with long muzzles, tall ears, poor coats, roached backs, etc.
My yorkies are raised in my home and are first and foremost my family. They are my literal fur children. I am a hobby breeder, not a commercial kennel. They are allowed free access of our home and never kenneled. On occasion, they spend time in iris pens (play yard) for their own safety if we are not home or if I have a litter of puppies. I am licensed, inspected and sanctioned by the American Kennel Club (AKC). They have strict standards for raising these precious babies and I am happy to be in good standing with them.
My yorkies are not for everyone. They are for those who have done their research in the breed and are seeking only the best; a quality, well-bred, beautiful, healthy, loving, family member for life. It is my goal to offer only the healthiest, cutest, sweetest yorkies with those baby-doll features that everyone wants.
All my puppies will have their first shots, tails docked, dew claws removed, wormed accordingly, and vet checked by my veterinarian. All puppies come with a one-year health guarantee. Puppies also come with a personalized puppy package to make transitioning in to their new forever home easier. Puppies will not be ready for their forever homes until at least 10-12 weeks, but some may stay longer to ensure they are eating solid food, have no bouts of hypoglycemia, and are well socialized.
For the safety of my yorkies and my children, I no longer allow visitors in my home. Yorkies are prone to life threatening diseases such as parvo and I do not wish to share germs or take the risk. The health of my babies is far more important to me. I also have young children. Several horror stories have been told of fellow breeders welcoming strangers into their homes and in return the breeders have been robbed or worse, murdered. My husband and I deciced we were no longer comfortable welcoming strangers in to our home in 2017. I will meet you at a public place so you can visit with your baby after the age of 8 weeks. I also encourage new owners to come to your puppy's first vet visit. I send several pictures, videos, and am more than happy to face time using facebook messenger or iPhones so you can watch your baby grow and see where they grow up. If you are uncomfortable with this, I completely understand. I have several references I can provide from previous buyers, including those who have been in my home, my AKC inspector, and veterinarian. If you still feel uncomfortable, I am more than willing to point you in the direction of other breeders who may allow in home, and not virtual visits. Delivery arrangements are possible and subject to an additional fee. Please note that I DO NOT ship cargo as the health and wellbeing of my babies is entirely too valuable. I am willing to travel anywhere in Arkansas, but if I need to meet you outside of state lines, I will charge an additional fee.
If you are interested in welcoming one of my babies into your family, please fill out my puppy application so I can consider adding you to my waiting list. Please note that my puppies are sold mainly as pets to pet homes only, breeding rights are seldom ever given.
