While you will be matched with Yorkies in Austin, the Uptown puppies network includes breeders and breeding companies that span the entire USA! This means that you can set your preferences to Austin only, or look further afield for more options. The majority of breeders and breeding companies on the Uptown Puppies database offer to arrange puppy transport to any major airport near you.
Out of the thousands of applications that Uptown Puppies receives every year, only 10 percent of breeders or breeding companies make the cut. All accepted applicants are required to undergo a thorough screening process, which checks for humane handling of puppies. If they are approved they are then required to sign the Breeder Pledge, holding them to high standards.
Unfortunately, in this day and age there are a number of breeders pretending to be humane when behind closed doors they are running a puppy mill. Uptown Puppies provides a comprehensive network of ethical breeders and businesses, and a system designed to match loving homes with well-cared-for puppies.
Puppy mills are terrible places, where dogs are bred and raised in unethical conditions. From breeding practices to healthcare, puppy mill owners neglect their puppies and cause major health issues for the Yorkies. Without the proper tender loving care at a young age, dogs raised in a puppy mill are prone to behavioral issues and are often riddled with diseases.

Originally called “broken-haired scotch terriers,” Yorkies are gorgeous, adventurous little dogs. Initially kept as ratters, Yorkies were found in mills and mines keeping the rats at bay. These fun-loving canines are popular for their high-energy and sociable personalities.
