I got my pup at 7 or 8 weeks. It's really not that big of a deal so long as you don't get them any earlier than that.

One can wind a pup at 8 weeks with no problem.

That's good to know. How often do you have to wind them after that? Is it okay to let them wind all the way down before winding them back up?

Do you live with her? Either way you don't get a yorkie....You must be the bitch to buy her a yorkie and then have to train it yourself. Just wait until she starts making the crazy comparisons to yalls dog and a baby. Shot her family and then dome piece her, it's the only way you get out of this

The most important advice I can give is to handle and massage your dogs feet, ears and entire body daily in its first 6 months and beyond. This will build the trust needed to help the dog whenever it might be injured or sick. Not to mention teaching it anything you want.

I have so many things to post about this statement that I don't even know where to start

I used to breed yorkies, and the problem is when they are that young and so little (in terms of body weight) is getting them to eat several small meals a day so that their blood sugar doesn't get to low.

I always fed mine a small portion of moistened dry puppy chow with a spoonful of can puppy food mixed in. 9 1/2 weeks is still pretty young. Be patient and you will find that you have one very loyal and smart little friend.

I miss mine terribly....Good luck

6 weeks is normally the minimum. Most bad breeders are trying to get rid of them Earl. Sounds like you have a good. I wouldn’t be concerned because you won't be able to train a rat.

The longer they're with their siblings the better, it teaches them how to play and interact with other dogs(knowing how hard of a bite is acceptable and whatnot).
