Probably a cross between a Maltese and a terrier. The Yorkie controlled rats in mines and cotton mills.  The breed is smaller today, weighing around 7 pounds.  He loves life with stay-at-home people, and is an alert watch dog.  This breed does not shed. Daily brushing is required.

When you purchase a puppy from a CADF breeder, you are purchasing from a dedicated, conscientious breeder whose priority is to produce healthy specimens of their own breed.


All CADF member breeders have agreed to abide by our Code of Ethics. Our breeders screen their breeding stock for known hereditary problems, specific to their particular breed. This allows you to purchase your puppy with confidence, knowing that your breeder has taken all of the necessary steps to provide you with the healthiest puppy possible.
