Breeding for Health, Temperament, Soundness, and Outstanding Beauty!
About Yorkhaven Dogs, LOCATION: EAST OF CALGARY, AB
My Yorkies originated generations back from the TOP world-winning Canadian champion bloodlines (Durrer in strength) with top long-time winning European lines also brought in for diversity (Hunderwood). Now I have my own generations of championed dogs in my pedigrees.
I have successfully shown my dogs all over Canada and the US, and at the large Orlando. FL and New York City, NY televised dog shows. As I wind down my own personal goals in the ring, my co-owners continue to show my Yorkies all over Canada and the US, and as far away as Brazil. All of these owners I have met in person first.
Although sold mainly as pets and great companions, my Yorkies are conformed to succeed at conformation shows. As time allows in the future, I hope to also train to perform at obedience, agility, and more.As a CKC member, I am inspired and bound by the Code of Ethics Breeding and Selling Practices. My intent is to produce beautiful healthy dogs for family companions with confident personalities and loving, playful dispositions.
HEALTH TESTING OUR PARENTS TO GIVE YOU PEACE OF MIND
I strive to do the best I can for this outstanding little toy terrier breed, taking great care with our breeding decisions The parents and grandparents are all screened for potential inherited diseases of purebred dogs through Embark Veterinary, a Cornell University research partner. I also regularly test for breed specific concerns as well as screening eyes and heart as available clinics are offered.
Past the obvious physical exam and general appearance, this is the most effective way to produce healthy puppies, with an understanding of the full genetic makeup of your dog BEFORE choosing to breed her/him. This protocol goes one giant step further than the minimum health testing recommended by the OFA.
I offer quality pet puppies for the distinguished buyer, as well as outstanding show prospect pups to qualified show exhibitors. The advantage to those looking for that new family member is peace of mind where your pup has been raised. But also the pride to know your puppy comes from generations of “pick-of-the-litter” top show dogs chosen for their outstanding qualities and health. As such, your pup from us will look like and act like a “correct” purebred Yorkshire Terrier should; highly intelligent, brave, curious, loving, with an aire of importance, and of course a bit mischievous!
Yorkies are a perpetual playful puppy and very loyal to their person. Yorkies are one of the tiniest breeds but THINK they are big and will not back down from other dogs no matter what their size. It is important to be home full-time with a young pup to keep them safe from harm. A Yorkie should be approximately 2.5 to 3 lbs at 12 weeks old, to mature to a healthy adult size of 5-7 lbs. There is no such thing as a “teacup” or “mini” or “micro” yorkie. They are classified as a TOY dog and that is all they should be referred to with regards to size. We do not breed for yorkies that may be runted in growth because that also could mean runted heart, runted kidneys, runted liver, etc.
