8/15/07 First Vet check the health on both parents. Have they had liver testing done or been checked for luxating patella, or heart murmur. No? Then dont breed them until you do! The last thing you need is an unhealthy puppy you cannot sell. Get them to a vet, and also check their pedigrees. There should be Champions on there to have any type of quality pups. Only breed for the betterment of the breed- are both parents up to the AKC breed standard for Yorkies- (silky coats, blue and gold, square bodies, nice teeth, etc.?) Because if she has to have a $1,000 C-section or worse,if you lose her in birthing, etc, you wont be doing it for the money! Then, best of luck! Lisa
