Cancer retired me from Nursing in 2003. Since then I have
battled 6 kinds of cancer. When I relocated to Ocala, I wanted to do
something that would use my nursing skills and feed my soul.
I decided to breed AKC Yorkshire Terriers. I am located in Marion Oaks,
Ocala, Florida and sell ONLY AKC Yorkshire Terrier puppies.
My goal is to breed Yorkie puppies which
closely match the AKC standard (4-7 pounds) AND, who are happy, spoiled, healthy and human and pet
friendly. My puppies range in price from $950 - $2,000
depending on size and sex.
I was fortunate during our start up and ongoing growth to have my husband
Wayne retire with me; without him we would never have progressed as we did.
His love for the puppies and the adults and willingness to contribute his
time and energy made it all possible.
I have a daughter
and son and 5 grandchildren. I am a retired RN,
having started my career in Trauma nursing. My 5 grandchildren are currently;
3 in the military, and 2 in College (Physical Therapy and Nursing School).
My goal as a Yorkshire
Terrier breeder is to bring you
beautiful, healthy, little darlings to love and cuddle. Each Yorkie
comes with a
heart of gold, full of energy, a huge capacity for love and a guarantee
to bring love into your home. They are also very pre-spoiled so if
spoiling is not your intention these puppies may not be suited for you.
I am a small home breeder, having only
2-3 litters a
year. I have no kennels and no crates. My puppies begin their life in a whelping playpen and at about
6 weeks of age begin to visit with the fur and human family in the rest of the house. They begin paper training in the playpen. Some even master the use of a doggy door during this period
and almost all learn to use the doggy steps to the sofa for napping.
They begin weaning at about
They usually will continue with mom occasionally nursing, socializing with
their littermates and "everyone else" in the family. They
continue to be trained by Mom in
proper puppy etiquette until about 8-11 weeks. We
leave this up to Mom !! They are well socialized by placement time.
Smaller ones may stay as long as 11 weeks. Our puppies are never
shipped. They must be seen and pre-loved before the pickup date.
select your puppy, I attempt to send weekly pictures to you so that you can enjoy
their growth and all the changes that they make during those first 8-10 weeks.
