Non-Purebred Yorkies

There are a lot of Yorkies for sale but it is rather difficult to define whether a Yorkie is purebred or not. There are some recommendations for those who want to breed Yorkies and are interested in the best representatives of these dogs. Before spending any money, you need to carefully examine a dog and consider physical characteristics.

Also, you can find lists presented by such reputable associations such as the American Kennel Club and to take them into consideration before making any choice. The first thing is to pay attention to is the color scheme. According to the information presented by the American Kennel Club, pure Yorkies should be born black and tan in color. With maturing of the dog, the color will be changing and get intermingled. If you want to present your dog in any competition, your dog’s fur needs to be colored dark steel blue but not silver-blue.Non-Purebred Yorkies

The blue color needs to come separate with black as well as bronzy fur. In general, all the distinct patches need to be separate and not to intermingle with each other. If you see that the color patterns of your dog are different, you may consider your dog to be a mutt. Secondly, you need to examine the dog’s head. Any purebred Yorkie will have a small and flat head. According to the information presented by breeders, the muzzle of your pet needs to be short and the color of the noise should be black.

A lot of attention should be paid to the form of the ears that should have a V-shape and to be located not that far from each other. Check the teeth of your pet and if they are broken or they look odd, then there is a great chance that you have bought an inbred dog. Besides, purebred Yorkies should have the weight of 5 to 7 pounds. If your Yorkie weighs more than 7 pounds, you will not have a chance to participate in showing events.
