Questions & Answers
This is the top question that all new dog owners have at the forefront of their minds, but the truth is that it depends on a number of factors. Breeders and breeding companies price their puppies according to the pedigree, color, coat type and breeder experience. The good news is that when you use the Uptown Puppy network, you can set your preferences to match you with a Yorkie that fits your required budget!
Yes, they are! Yorkies are the most popular dog in America for the simple reason that they can live happily in small or big spaces. These little dogs are ideal for apartment living, but just remember that they are a high-energy breed, so they will need to be walked daily to be truly content and healthy.
It depends on what you want! The Uptown Puppies network is designed to match you with the perfect puppy according to the preferences you select. As our database spans the entire USA, you have the option of choosing a puppy on your doorstep, or from across the country. Most of our breeders offer puppy transportation as part of the package, so all you need to do is pick up your new pooch from the nearest major airport.
The Uptown Puppies team receives daily applications from prospective breeders and companies, but less than 10 percent of them are offered a place on the database. To be accepted the individuals and companies are required to meet our strict standards of humane living conditions, healthcare, breeding techniques and more.
While there are a number of excellent ethical breeders out there, it can be difficult to know which ones are real and which ones are not. Sadly many breeders pretend to be humane when in reality they are running a puppy mill. Uptown Puppies prevents scams by providing a database of breeders and breeding companies, so you can find the puppy of your dreams with ease.
Puppy mills are inhumane breeding grounds where puppies are neglected and even abused. By forgoing healthcare treatments, proper living conditions and basic tender loving care, the puppies raised in these types of places are riddled with illness and behavioral issues. This leads to heartbreak and exorbitant vet fees, not to mention supporting unethical conduct.
You bet there are! The Uptown Puppies network has a number of vetted Yorkie breeders in Dallas right now, and all you need to do is check to see if the perfect one is up for grabs. If for some reason the Yorkies in your neighborhood are all sold out, you can change your preferences to span the rest of the country, so your puppy could be on its way in no time!
Yorkies are fun-loving and adventurous dogs, small in stature and weighing only a few pounds. This makes the adorable breed ideal for traveling and apartment lifestyle, which is one of the reasons these dogs are so popular today. Initially kept to fight off the rats in mines and mills, Yorkies are high-energy dogs that love to play!
