Where Can I Find A Local Yorkie Breeder In Orange County?

My family wants to find a Yorkie puppy to add to our family! Where can we find a breeder or at least puppies for sale in Orange County, California?

Make sure to contact as many breeders as possible. Ask them a lot of questions about their breeding program. Get references from others that have bought dogs from them in the past. Contact those people to find out how well their experience went with that particular breeder.
I saw several yorkie breeders in California on this page: http://www.pets4you.com/york.html


i put a ad in my local paper to find the healthiest breeders that don’t breed by kennel club breed standards….

Never, ever buy a dog from a breeder. Please adopt. Buying from a breeder only fuels the greed of people who exploit animals and causes the pet overpopulation problem to continue.
Those who breed millions of dogs and cats each year for profit are contributing to the companion animal overpopulation crisis. Every newborn puppy or kitten means one home fewer for a dog or cat desperately waiting in a shelter or roaming the streets.
Producing animals for sale is a greedy and callous business in a world where there is a critical and chronic shortage of good homes for dogs, cats, and other animals, and the only “responsible breeders” are ones who, upon learning about their contribution to the overpopulation crisis, spay or neuter their animals, and get out of the business altogether.
Most people know to avoid puppy mills and “backyard” breeders. But many kind individuals fall prey to the picket-fence appeal of so-called “responsible” breeders and fail to recognize that no matter how kindly a breeder treats his or her animals, as long as dogs and cats are dying in animal shelters and pounds because of a lack of homes, no breeding can be considered “responsible.”
There is no excuse for breeding or for supporting breeders. If you love animals and are ready to care for a cat or a dog for the rest of the animal’s life, please adopt from your local animal shelter, where there are dogs and cats galore—tails wagging and hearts filled with hope, looking out through the cage bars, just waiting to find someone to love. Shelters receive new animals every day, so if you don’t find the perfect companion to match your lifestyle on your first visit, keep checking back. When you find your new best friend, you’ll be glad that you chose to save a life—and made a new best friend as well.
Producing more animals—either to make money or to obtain a certain “look” or characteristic—is also harmful to the animals who are produced by breeding. Dogs and cats don’t care whether their physical appearance conforms to a judge’s standards, yet they are the ones who suffer the consequences of humans’ manipulation. Inbreeding causes painful and life-threatening genetic defects in “purebred” dogs and cats, including crippling hip dysplasia, blindness, deafness, heart defects, skin problems, and epilepsy. Distorting animals for specific physical features also causes severe health problems. The short, pushed-up noses of bulldogs and pugs, for example, can make exercise and even normal breathing difficult for these animals. Dachshunds’ long spinal columns often cause back problems, including disk disease.
All breeders fuel the companion animal overpopulation crisis, and every time someone purchases a puppy or a kitten instead of adopting from an animal shelter, homeless animals lose their chance of finding a home—and will be euthanized. Many breeders don’t require every puppy or kitten to be spayed or neutered prior to purchase, so the animals they sell can soon have litters of their own, creating even more animals to fill homes that could have gone to shelter animals—or who will end up in animal shelters or so-called “no-kill” animal warehouses themselves. Simply put, for every puppy or kitten who is deliberately produced by any breeder, a shelter animal dies.

Why go to a breeder, when you can save a pup from the shelter or pound. Why pay a lot of money than paying way less? Why not SAVE a puppy or dog? Go to a shelter please.

Maybe dog magazines or online, the AKC website, but make sure you visit the breeder and check out the parents and littermates. Stay away from pet stores! Theres a bunch of sites that will tell you what to look for and ask about when visiting a breeder. Just google it!

Go through the breed national parent club to find a good breeder who functions within ethical standards. http://www.ytca.org/mainview.htm
