When choosing a Yorkie puppy as your pet, you need to pay attention to specific characteristics. First of all you need to pay attention to the health of puppies and if you see that some of them behave in a different way, you need to exclude them from your choice as if a puppy is a bit ill, it will be rather hard to train. Besides, these toy breeds are prone to health issues and it is rather important to choose the healthiest one.
But, when you choose a Yorkie puppy, you need to consider the fact that some of the genetic diseases may appear within several months and you will need to deal with them and provide the best possible attention and support to your new family memeber. That is why any dog owner needs to use the services of reputable and honorable breeders but there is always a risk that some of the conditions may appear. Nevertheless, there are certain sings you need to take into account when choosing a puppy. You can also consider adopting a Yorkie in need. There are many puppies and grown adult dogs, that are rescued from puppy mills.
- Puppies should be active and mobile.
- It is better to choose a puppy when the age is about 10 or more weeks.
- You need to pay attention to the behavior of the puppies as they should not be aggressive or shy when it comes to human interaction.
You need to pay attention to coordination of puppies and any puppy needs to feel the surroundings. If any puppy is uncoordinated, that may mean some neurological conditions that may turn into serious diseases after some months. Besides, the risk of vision problems is possible and you need to consider the fact as well. The health of puppies may be sensitive to different infection and worms are not a rare case.
The presence of worms is a sign of poor care and the risk of other health issues is rather high as their growing system has already been stressed by infection.
If you see anything strange or out of place, let know the owner so that he can provide the medical attention the Yorkie puppy needs.
