Living with Yorkshire Terrier Puppies

Visiting the Veterinarian

In our experience, we have found the best and most competent vets are at local neighborhood clinics. Too often, it seems like the big chain-type clinics try to push products that your puppy doesn't need — as if they work off commission.

Fancy Pups House

Teacup Yorkie puppies have a small body weight, and it is easy to overload their little livers with chemicals. Some of the worst medications, in our opinion, are heartworm preventatives used on very small, young pups. It is our understanding that heartworms don't manifest until at least four months of age anyway, so what's the rush? Why take a chance on making your new puppy sick?

Another offender is systemic flea medication, which is also very harsh on small young pups. Should you encounter fleas, a good treatment is to simply warm-wash them with a gentle sudsy shampoo. This actually suffocates the fleas without injuring the puppy. Just look at the wash water when you are finished, and you will see the dead fleas floating in it. Save the "harder" treatments for when the puppy is much older. Remember, over-medicating can be worse than under-medicating.


Internet Ordering, Blogs, etc.

Everyone has heard the old adage "if you see it on the internet, it must be true." Remember that there is a lot of competition out there. Some of it is credible, and some — not so much. There are a lot of bloggers out there who like to slam one another for their own personal agenda. If they have difficulty selling their own products, they go to the internet blogs and slam other people and attempt to make themselves look good by making others look bad. Generally speaking, they are whiners and exaggerators and don't really care if they harm others. Unfortunately, as you probably know, there is little accountability on the internet. Remember, there is always more than one side to a story. There are many impressive websites out there.   The real test is to see for yourself. Come see for yourselves or check us out on Facebook for the comments people have left and form your own opinion.

Scams

When shopping for teacup puppies, it is important to remember that there are many scams out there. We often hear about unfortunate buyers being scammed or almost scammed. It's more prevalent than you'd think. Some of the flags to look for include:

  • A website with no credible phone number that requires you to communicate through email or texts.
  • American addresses that are not theirs.
  • Puppies that are offered for free if you pay the transportation.
  • "Backyard Breeders" that use their pets as a source of income, not for the love and betterment of the breed.
     

. We are proud of the quality of our standard and teacup puppies, and we want you to be as well.  We provide shot records and full registration, as well as a sample of premium puppy food.  Our puppies are always kept clean and groomed.
