I purchased my Teacup Yorkshire Terrier on the 10th of June. While I had a few rough days to begin with, Ryan was ALWAYS available on the phone and by video to chat with me to get me through those tough times when my Peyton was adjusting to her new environment. Since that time, she had adjusted well and is very energetic and is just a joy to the entire family. She goes everywhere with me. I take her to church, shopping and am getting ready to take her on our family vacation next month. It is very reassuring to know that you have people like Ryan who are there for you with any question you have at any time to help you along with the way! I would not hesitate to purchase another dog from Premier Pups. They are A-1 first class.
We purchased Kali from premier pups late March and it was one of them best decisions we could've made. She's our little spoiled baby.

We will be purchasing from them again soon!
I have purchased two dogs from Premier Pups, Bentley who is three years old Bella who just turned one. Both transactions were very smooth. I had Bentley shipped to me and walked right up and picked him up once he arrived at the airport. Bella we picked up. Bella was the puppy of the owners dog NuNu and I cant say how HAPPY I am to have her, she has an awesome personality and runs the show at home. Mike was very accommodating in the pick up process. We love both of our dogs very much and spoil them all the time. I can't imagine my life without either of them. If your thinking about buying a dog from Premier Pups, I would highly recommend them. I have referred friends who have purchased dogs thru Premier Pups and they were amazed at how smooth the process was.
We had not had a puppy search in 17 years. We were amazed at how difficult it was to locate reliable information on reliable breeders or breeder representative services. I work in law enforcement, so it was also shocking to see how many low-ball internet scam sites exist these days, ready to rob you. My family cannot say enough good things about Premier Pups. They provide precisely what they promise, and more in terms of integrity and peace of mind. I am unaware of any other midwestern breeder representative that makes everything so easy, all in one site.

The Yorkshire Terrier also known to many as the Yorkie, said to have Scottish ancestry, was brought to England by breeders in the 19th century. It was originally bred and used to catch mice in clothing mills. Due to its energetic and brave temperament, it excelled at this task. Today, the Yorkie is one of the most popular and sought-after dog breeds in the United States. Its long silky coat which is usually blue and tan in color gives this puppy a unique physical appearance. These charming little dogs crave attention and are very affectionate towards humans; thus, making them the perfect addition to your family.
Appearance and Grooming
This toy sized terrier has a long, silky and soft blue and tan coat that is parted on the face and from the base of the skull to the end of the tail and hangs evenly and quite straight down each side of body. The body is neat, compact and well proportioned. An interesting fact is that their coats become lighter in color as they age. Though, shedding is minimal, their long hair requires daily brushing in effort to prevent tangles and knots. Regular grooming every for 6 to 8 weeks is also very important to keep a healthy coat and clipped nails.
This self-assured, intelligent breed is a combination of charming looks and adventurous terrier spirit. This breed can certainly show a wide range of personalities from cuddly and perky and wanting nothing more than to adoringly follow in their families everywhere, to an outgoing and sometimes mischievous temperament. Early socialization and training will make for a well-rounded addition to your family. But be careful not to spoil them to much as they can encourage them to form bad behaviors.
Family and Companionship
These elegant dogs are very affectionate towards their owners and families as one would expect from a companion dog, but true to their terrier heritage, they're sometimes suspicious of strangers, and will bark at strange sounds and intruders. They require lots of attention and time with their family. It is best not to leave them for long hours as they will become quite anxious and yappy. Because of their small size they will do best with older children unless supervised during play time with younger children.
Daily exercise will help your Yorkie release pent-up energy, maintain muscles, keep the heart healthy, keeps the metabolism working efficiently and intense that they are panting. A moderate walk twice a day is perfect. These dogs like routine, so ideally one in the morning and one in the evening.
Training and Socialization
These puppies respond best to repetition, praise and plenty of positive reinforcement. They are very in tune with the trainer and the challenges of training as they are driven by the mental stimulation. Early socialization is equally important as it offers the opportunity to become accustomed to people, other dogs and traffic. It also provides this curious pup with mental stimulation by way of sight, scent, sound, which aids in the training process.
