FAQ

Most common questions that are asked of us


How long have you had your dogs

We have had Yorkies for 15+ years, we have not shown our Yorkies for the main reason Vicki was in a serious accident and this has prevented her from enjoying this Canine sport.
We recieved our first Biewer Yorkshire a la Pom Pon from a from in Frankfurt at a International Horse show in March 2002. Frankie is the only Biewer at this time that has been shown


What size are your dogs

Our Yorkies and Biewers range from 4 lbs to 13 lbs, the
standard for the Biewer is very much the same as for the Yorkie other than the color
We do not condone the breeding for smaller babies.
Should we happen to have a baby that will be under 4 lbs it will not be sold as this is not a healthy baby in our eyes

Why are your females above the standard size

We prefer our mommies to be of larger size as they do not have the health issue of the smaller mommies. To date our larger mommies have never had to have a vet assist them in birth as our smaller girls have had to have C-sections and other assistance in birth. Also Liver shunt is more prevalent in the smaller dogs.
