Because of the increasing
number of breeder listings I get, I have divided the listings into 3
pages. The links are below to take you to the page with the state
listed that you are looking for.
When purchasing a puppy of any breed
it is your responsibility to ask questions about their health, and get the
seller to give you some kind of contract that guarantees the puppy against any
genetic problems or illness, such as luxating patella, liver shunt, heart
problems, or anything else that may be inherited. The contract should
state that the breeder will either refund your purchase price, or pay for
treatment, or replace the puppy with another. You should also ask what
registry they use, there are a lot of registry's now days that will let you
register any dog, whether it is a pure breed or not. AKC (Americaan Kennel
Club), UKC (United Kennel Club), and if you
are in Canada CKC (Canadian Kennel Club)) are the top registries for dogs. CKC
(Contental Kennel Club) in the US is not a
very good registry, they will register anything if you pay the fee.
If it states that they will
replace the puppy, make sure you know if you will have to return the one
with the problem. Some breeders will want the sick or problem pup
back before they will replace it, and if this is the case, will you be
willing to part with a puppy that you have already fallen in love with.
Some breeders may replace the sick pup after you provide proof from your
vet about the problem, and still allow you to keep the sick one because
chances are if it is returned they will have it put down.
I hope that this makes your
search a little easier, and that you can find the right breeder, and more
important, the right little yorkie baby for you. Good luck in your search.
