Q: What if I'm interested in adding one of these Yorkie puppies to my family?
A: Please contact the owner via the website:
Q: Is there a vet to keep an eye on the puppies?
A: The puppies are under the constant supervision of trained professionals. We do not recommend that others support a litter of newborn pups without proper training, access to a qualified veterinarian, experienced professional guidance, and veterinary knowledge.
Q: Where are the puppies?
A: These pups are in a loving home, under the constant care of responsible professionals. The pen they are in is specially designed to house the puppies and their mother.
Q: Why does mom disappear sometimes?
A: Mama Yorkie has room in her pen that allows her to step away from her pups when she needs some "me" time. She is also exercised regularly and goes for walks. Her food and water dish are just off camera, inside the pen.
Q: Why does mom seem to lick the puppies' genital area?
A: At this age, puppies cannot control their bowel systems. Mom has to prompt them by licking and applying pressure to them to insure the puppies evacuate properly.
Q: Why does mom seem excited at times?
A: Having babies can be very stressful, even for dogs. Instinctually, new mothers are highly protective and can seem anxious around their new babes. Even when completely safe, moms still worries.
Q: Why don't the puppies move? Are they okay?
A: Puppies spend A LOT of time eating and sleeping for the first few weeks. Around 4 weeks old, they will start to develop and learn how to use their little legs.
Q: Do the puppies need human interaction for socialization purposes?
A: Yes. After the first few weeks, the puppies will be handled regularly to familiarize them with humans. This helps their general disposition, and is very important to insure a healthy relationship toward people.
Q: When do they start to eat regular dog food?
A: The puppies will begin to wean off of their mother around 6 weeks old.
Q: What if something goes wrong and a puppy gets sick?
A: The puppies have already had their initial vet check up and all seem healthy and strong. A regular veterinarian is available 24/7 if an occurrence should arise where one would be necessary. They will go through another thorough veterinary check up before going to their forever homes.
Q: What's up with Yorkshire Terriers?
A: Yorkshire Terriers are named for the English city from which they originate from in Yorkshire England. The dogs were used to catch rats in clothing mills in the nineteenth century and often belonged to the working class weavers. People would joke that the Yorkshire Terrier's fine silky coat was actually the product of the weaver's loom! It was During the Victorian era Yorkshire Terriers became popular companion pets to nobility.
Yorkshire Terriers, or "Yorkies" for short, are a very small dog that range in weight between 4 and 7 pounds. They may be small dogs, but they have big personalities! The American Kennel Club describes the Yorkshire Terrier as being "brave, determined, investigative, and energetic". Yorkies are an affectionate breed and love being around you! Because of their small size, they travel well and don't require an enormous amount of exercise.
Yorkshire Terriers are known for their beautiful silky coat. Puppies are born black and tan and stay that way until they reach full maturity. The adult Yorkshire Terrier coat can come in several color combinations: black and tan, black and gold, blue and gold or blue and tan. The take home message is that Yorkies are a good lookin' breed!
