What to watch for when looking for your new yorkie puppy.
Unfortunately because of the popularity of the yorkie breed there are far too many people willing to be crooks and/or scam artists.
We get many calls from people who have been scammed looking for their new puppies online.
Pet Scammers...what to look for!
1. Always check for multiple things:
A website, contact phone number to talk to someone personally.
If phone number is no good, they’ll prefer to only text or email you.
If you don’t have a phone number to call and speak with an actual person. – BEWARE
Find all connected facebook, social media pages with reviews + youtube pages.
Most scammer will not have all of these connected.
A good breeder loves to tell people about their puppies and
talk about the quality of their puppies.
2. Pedigree pups at prices too good to be true.
Look out for The Word ADOPTION on Ads and an incredibly low price $300–$1000
Yorkies generally don't sell for less than $1500 for a purebred puppy.
A reputable yorkie breeder may price their puppies anywhere from $1500-$10,000.
3. Ask for a new updated photo of the puppy, if their unable to furnish a pic – Its a SCAM !
Do not EVER under any circumstance give out your personal information to someone you don’t know.
Unable to produce updated pictures as the puppy grows that is a warning sign !
Or if they can’t produce pictures of the parents or any past litters.
4. Scammer want you to pay only with Western union or Money Gram.
Puppy for sale Ads that pop up first are filled with scammer schemes
Scammers will pay for their puppy ads to pop up first.
Advertising $350-$500 teacup yorkie puppies.
Many of those photos are from other breeders they found online.
5. You Pay the Shipping and the ad will be listed with a very low price or for FREE ADOPTION.
You just need to pay shipping. Money gram to have the puppy shipped.
The puppy will never arrive.
6. Beware of Puppy Mill Puppies, most time puppies are very cheap and
the seller will always want to meet in a parking lot somewhere.
Many of these poor puppies are sick or fall sick/and or die within a few days,
or may have other hidden problems.
Leaving you no way to get a hold of the seller.
BEWARE OF PUPPY MILL PARTICIPANTS!
Here at Genstone Yorkies, we pride ourselves in the field of love, security, enduring health and a royal yorkie breed prepped for further training as your daily service dog and protective house pet. Conditioned and following the suit of their parents not to mention their grandparents champion bloodline, at just weeks old, we’ve noticed the different attributes brought forth from litter to litter.
From our AKC, CKC, to our APRI registered European bloodline; intelligence and just the look thereof is owned, making our yorkie quality evident. Let’s make no mistake about it though; some Yorkshire terriers can be high maintenance. You see, there are (3) hair types to the Yorkie breed; (1) The silky coat (2) The wavy coat and (3) The cotton coat. All are hyperallergenic leaving no worries for those with allergies. On the other hand, grooming services to the size poop one is willing to have to deal with can make all the difference in the luxury of having a yorkie. On the issue of too much yapping, we have mellow time enjoying jazz, aroma therapy, to offering plenty of personal attention with “baby-talk” and pet messages.
Taught the first command, ‘No No! We captivate their attention, reward when necessary and chastise with voice and hand gestures. Using two hand claps to signify the No No order, this also gets their attention ready for the next command. A ball toss or told to sit, our grade of Yorkie Terrier comes more than ready to be fully utilized by the finest of family and loved ones. The question is; would a 4 pound tea cup yorkie be the ideal size for you? Or would you rather consider a 5 to 7 pounder which is less expensive and comes with less chance of an injury occurring. Also, with respect for the history of the Yorkshire Terriers health. All glory to our Heavenly Father for continual blessing our yorkies with absolute superb health. Physical after physical, our short list of veterinarians never fail to stroke our ego’s by closing an exam stating, ‘another well loved pup with no signs of genetic defects.’ Welcome to a stronger, healthier and more promising Yorkie breed, Gemstone Yorkies...

Why Routine Puppy Shots Shouldn’t Be Routine as we know, puppies are given a series of several vaccinations, spaced two to four weeks apart.
This is pretty standard practice and we’ve come to believe that a series of puppy shots is necessary for them to be protected.
Based on some most recent studies, new born puppies obtain immunity from their mom and retain it in their bodies for some time.

With so much energy and personality, your pooch might seem indestructible, but many things you store at home could represent a serious danger to your dog. If you’re bringing home a new four-legged friend or just need a refresher on dog-proofing your home, here’s how to ensure that your precious pup stays safe.
Store and dispose of leftovers carefully
Some leftovers can be extremely dangerous to your dog. Make sure that leftovers, including onions, garlic, and grapes, are out of your dog’s reach. Candy bowls on coffee tables may seem safe, but if they contain chocolate, put them out of reach as well. Current research also shows that the artificial sweetener Xylitol is very toxic to dogs. And it’s well known that chicken bones can puncture a dog’s gastrointestinal tract.
When it comes to the above dangers, you need to double-bag leftovers before putting them in the garbage unless you are taking out the garbage immediately. Also make sure you are using a trash can that can’t be easily tipped over by your dog. It’s worth noting that all dog owners need trash cans with secure lids or that are out of reach. If you are saving leftovers, place them in a plastic storage box with a tight lid, and put it in the refrigerator (not on a countertop or other surface accessible to your dog).
Most dogs are not picky eaters, and their eagerness to eat anything may be a source of humor for owners. Still, that propensity to chow down on anything can get dogs in a lot of trouble.
Mouthwash, moth balls and fabric softeners are particularly dangerous. These items need to be kept inaccessible to your dog. One way to keep your dog safe is to put all these toxins in a large plastic container with a sealed lid. Alternatively, you can put a lock or child safety device on your sink cabinet, or store these items in a wall cabinet or on a shelf that is well out of your dog’s reach.
Make sure that your porches and front and back yards are also dog-safe zones. Keep antifreeze, herbicides, and pesticides in a locked cabinet in your garage or inside the house where you store your cleaners.
Fortunately, most products used to eliminate pet odors can also be used as all-purpose cleaners, and these products are generally pet-safe as well. If you’re not sure what to buy, ask your pet store associate what she recommends in the way of a safe cleaner to use around your animal.
Ah, yes, the dreaded doggie toilet sip. Dog toilet drinking might be worse or better than you think, depending on your habits. If you use any of the automatic toilet cleaning products (you know, the stuff that turns your toilet water blue), you absolutely must keep your dog out of the toilet. That stuff could make him sick, though the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) thinks it’s unlikely to kill him.
Similarly, if you flush only periodically to save water, you too need to keep your pup’s head out of the toilet. Keep the toilet seat and lid down when the appliance is not in use. This is particularly a mandate if your dog is small enough to fall in the toilet. Keep the bathroom doors shut as a backup precaution.
If, however, you flush after every use and clean the toilet bowl weekly without leaving chemicals in it, that doggie toilet drink is probably harmless. Some vets even think that steady supply of clean water might be better than what’s in the dog bowl.
In our busy lives, it’s easy to forget there might be hazards lurking in our home that could be dangerous for pets. No one wants to lose their pup to a toxic home cleaner or yard product. A few easy precautions will ensure that your home is dog friendly and safe.
Fine Quality Yorkshire Terrier Puppies, only to great families.
