Default I just adopted a new yorkie pup. I was hoping to get some questions answered.

Questions


<--- Meet Suki =]

1. Suki came along with papers stating she was a pure breed. Her family tree says that her family line came from blk/tan & blk/gld ancestors. My thought process was that since her ancestors were blk/tan & blk & gld she would remain those colors. Now she's 3 months old and i've notice some silver outgrowth. Does that mean she will be a silver/blue yorkie?

2. Her papers came along with her parents reg no. & I was wondering if there's a possibility I can track down her parents to see pictures and health history.

3. When I adopted Suki she had an inguinal surgery. My best friend has a Pomeranian who is unneutured and the same age as suki (both purchased at the same time ) Although I don't plan on breeding suki is it hazardous for her to have puppies when she had the inguinal surgery?

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post & I hope you can answer my questions. =]

Welcome to yorkietalk!
Suki is super cute. By any chance, are you a Gilmore Girls fan? Where did she come from?
To answer your question about coat color, her coat breaking just means you've started on the exciting journey of seeing her transform into her adult coat. What it will be, you will need to have seen her parents, grandparents, and so on to make an educated guess as to what color she should end up being.
For #2, I have no idea. I guess it would depend on where she came from.
For #3, forgive me but I have to ask. If you were to breed her, what are your reasons for wanting to breed her? Do you know her pedigree? Her parents health background? There is a lot more to consider than just putting two dogs together.

Thank you =] When I was younger I use to love watching the gilmore girls after school but since I've been in college my t.v has been cut off. But when it was around yes I was! Why do you ask?

Suki came from a puppy store (>_<) I'm not a firm believer on puppy stores but it was near my work and I fell in love with her. I would visit her all the time on my way to work and I became attached to her.


Okay so her pedigree states that her family tree was full of tan/blk as well as gld/tan. No where on the family tree does it say silver/blk. =] So will she stay black and tan or will she turn to silver and blk. Should I purchase a new shampoo then?

I don't plan on breeding suki but the pomeranian is starting to (lack of a better word) hump everything in sight & I'm worried that he might impregnate her. As a precaution I would like to know what would happen if she were to get pregnant. =]

Thank you for replying. =]

I'm a fan too! I thought you named your pup after Suki in the show. There is a member here that has a Rory and a Lane.

Did you meet the breeder? They would be the ones to ask the pedigree questions. Humping isn't necessarily a sign of sexual maturity. It is a dominance thing, or a stress/anxiety reliever, believe it or not. If the Pom is only 3 months old I wouldn't worry to much about them getting together to mate quite yet. They're still babies.

I never was able to meet the breeder. I wish I could all I have is sukis parents registered number. I was hoping I could track them down and speak with the breeder and get to know more about sukis parents.

I never actually thought of that. Suki became her name because in Japanese it meants to like/love. =] That's so cool we could pretty soon have the entire cast of gilmore girls . =]

My friends have a group of puppies that we love to get together to have play dates were just all worried that Yoshi will get them all pregnant because they're all girls. .. (>_<)

I also wanted to add, if humping is something that you don't want them to do, teach them it's an undesired behavior. Play with them, let them get their pent up energy out. Distract them with something other than humping. If the humping is a fixation with one particular toy/bed, take it away.

You say here that your pup came from a puppy store, do you mean pet store ?
FYI. if your puppy came from a pet store, you can bet she first came from a puppy mill. If so there is a Very good possibility that the papers have been falsified. As for letting an accidental pregnancy happen , It Is Your Responsibility to make Sure that Does Not happen. It is Never a good idea to breed a dog in her 1st heat as she is still just a baby at that point. Also shelters are FULL of mixed breed dogs that of witch most will die. Why would you risk adding to that ? or take away their chance at a home by letting an accident happen.

I am aware that there's a possibility that suki might have came from a puppy mill. Just because a puppy has come from a puppy mill does that mean were not suppose to show love & affection to them? I never thought that I would purchase a dog from a puppy store but one day before work I walked by their grand opening and met suki. I paid a couple visits to see her and fell in love..

I'm not saying that I'm going to allow an "accident" like that to happen. As I mentioned above Suki has several buddies and one of them happens to be a guy who's starting to hump. They're all around the same age.

I know that any future puppies that are at risk for a bad future is what you're worried about and I don't plan on making my dog into a puppy making machine. She's like my daughter and I would never whore her out to other male dogs.

No. No one is saying that you shouldn't love your dog or show her affection. Just that you are going to need to be extra careful with her to make sure she doesn't ever breed because you would be playing Russian roulette with the health of both your dog and the puppies. Unfortunately, no matter what a pet store tells you, they DO get their dogs from puppy mills that make their money by breeding without regard to the health of the line The easiest and best thing to do is get her spayed prior to her first heat. And encourage your friend to do the same with her pom.

As for her coat color, you won't be able to tell fir sure at this age. Some of the breeders here will tell you that it could take up to two years before her adult coat is fully in. If by some miracle you could track down ACCURATE pics of the dam and sire, it would still only give you a clue but not a guarantee of her final coloring. I would hazard a guess that most registrations will say the parents are black and tan because they were at the time of their registration before breaking their color.

Good luck with your puppy.

Oops, wanted to add:
You said she had an inguinal hernia. Once properly repaired, the hernia does not pose a health risk. But, most vets prefer to do the hernia repair the same time as the spay to avoid a second surgery and the risks of anesthesia. Depending on the severity of the hernia, your vet may recommend an earlier time frame for spaying than they would otherwise.

Welcome to YT. I am not a breeder but I did find some information about inguinal hernias in dogs and from what I have read it is a genetic default that can be passed on to future litters. Along with many other reasons why she should not be bred, this is definitely a red flag as to why she should never be allowed to have puppies. The safest way to prevent her from getting pregnant is to plan a spay. There are many wonderful breeders here whom I feel will tell you the same. I have provided a link for you to read on inguinal hernias. Good luck with your new baby.

#2-coming from a puppy mill the chances of seeing a picture of the parents are close to never-they generally don't want anyone seeing those conditions
#3-as a responsible pet owner they should be spayed and neutered. It is best to consult your vet on your visits for her vaccines and get it scheduled as soon as possible.
Breeding is something best left to the pros. Take a look at the breeder forum to see some of the problems that can occur. Puppy mills do not care about genetics and the pain caused to puppies and those who love them. All they care about is the dollar they make.
