Breeding Larger Male
Hello everyone! I am new here, and also new to owning a Yorkie! My little man is 2.5 years old and was around 10 pounds when we adopted him around a year ago. He's now a little bit heavier, but hopefully he'll get some exercise this summer and shed a pound lol
I have read several articles that state that a larger Yorkie is actually a good thing for families and they tend to be healthier and aren't "fragile" like "toys". I would like to stud him out once or twice, but don't know where to start. I'm not looking to "make money" off of him, but if he could pay a vet bill or two, that'd be great lol.
I am located in central NC, and would appreciate being pointed in the right direction.
Gabe is purebred, has papers and is registered with the CKC. His breeder didn't register him with the AKC, and the lady that I adopted him from didn't register him with the AKC when she purchased him either.
Again, any help would be greatly appreciated. He's a spunky little thing and I know he would help make great offspring.

Oh where to start ! First , do you know his genetic background ? by this I mean did you purchase him from a Reputable SHOW breeder ? one who knows the COMPLETE Health & Genetic background of the parents from years back ? & knows that their dogs don't throw things like Liver Shunt, AAI, Chiari Malformation & Luxating Patellas just to name a few of the things that you could unknowingly be passing on to some poor unsuspecting owner & the heartache & expense that comes along with these things ? if the answer to this is No or you don't know then IMHO you should not breed your dog. I am not a breeder but was a vet tech for many yrs & I can honestly say that breeding is best left to the pros. Second IF you decide to go ahead and breed your dog, be prepared for LOTS & Lots of marking & peeing inside your home & sometimes this can be stopped OR only slowed down after the deed is done but sometimes not. even after he's neutered. Also it can cause other undesirable issues such as Humping anything & everything such as you, your guests, your purse when left unattended on the floor & so on & so on. If this dog is your loving pet & that's what you want him to continue to be then I would suggest that you think long & hard before breeding him.

I would not be purposely breeding a dog outside of the yorkie standard, I am sure you can find some better advice here on the subject but that is my humble opinion. Just enjoy him

Is he CKC as in Continental and not Canadian? Continental is not a reputable registry. The only reputable registry in the US is the AKC. Since you did not get the dog directly from the breeder, you don't know the exact reason or excuse most likely she didn't register with AKC. Usually the reason is it costs more, but really it doesn't. It's bc they can't. They don't have the proper paperwork to do so. Many times, the breeders don't even have the rights to breed the dogs in the first place, that's why they had to register with another registry.
And speaking of these other registries, they don't require extensive paperwork on the breeding history of the dam and sire like AKC does. They will just take your word and your check and believe you. One of our members here registered her coffee table as a purebred yorkie just to prove a point.
Also, was your dog a rehome? You say adopted, so that makes me think you got him through a rescue or shelter. Why was he not neutered? I would also agree with the poster above who said your boy will not be the same after he mates. He will mark a lot more, even in your home. He will have a much higher chance of running away since he can smell a female in heat miles away. It's just not worth it.
