Choose where you buy your Yorkie puppy carefully!

I was absolutely HORRIFIED when I received the following email from a lovely lady who enquired with me for a Teacup Female Yorkshire Terrier.  She wanted a Teacup Yorkie and bought a Yorkie from someone who let the little Yorkie puppy go at the age of 5 & ½ weeks old, not inoculated, not dewormed and probably unregistered. It is just shocking!

Baie dankie dat jy teruggekom het na my toe. Ek het toe Vrydag �n tefie gekry in Pretoria.

Sy is te pragtig Tannie! Ons het haar veearts toe gevat want sy is nou amper 6 weke.  Sy kry volgende week haar 1ste inspuitings en is Saterdag ontwurm. Baie dankie vir jou moeite, ek waardeer dit.


Please let this be a warning to all prospective Yorkie owners � please don�t be fooled and only buy from a reputable Yorkshire Terrier or Yorkie breeder to save yourself disappointment and heartache.  A reputable Yorkshire Terrier breeder will never sell a Yorkie puppy under the age of at least 8 weeks.  Very small Yorkies (the so- called teacup yorkies and pockets yorkies) normally only leave the Yorkshire Terrier breeder�s care at 10 � 12 weeks. They will also never let the little Yorkie puppy leave without its first inoculation!


Don�t be fooled!
