HISTORY

  • Yorkies in San Diego is a very special breeder. We are not a kennel. Since 8 years we strongly believe in a small breeding program that promotes the quality and love of the breed.

    All of our puppies are raised in our homes. Babies have been handled from the moment they were born which makes them very loving and people friendly as they mature.

    Our babies leave for their new homes at approx. 12 weeks of age and are usually wee wee pad trained at this time.

    Our puppies range from "tinies" to "standard" in size. Check out our photo pages for pictures of some of our parents and some of the puppies available at this time.

    They will be current on all shots/worming and will come with a health/genetic guarantee. The Yorkshire Terrier is a small breed with a long, beautiful, silky coat. They do require regular grooming but make excellent companions and watchdogs. Initially bred to hunt rats in cotton mills and mines in Yorkshire, England Original breed was much larger.
