Breeding in Seattle area
Hi, I am an owner of a yorkie stud and he is ready to breed. I'm not 100% sure if I want to fix him or not but I want to at least try breeding him because he is small and has amazing features and marks and will make super cute puppies(at least some). Where do I go and how do I find denials for that? I live in Seattle WA area.

There are a lot of things to consider before breeding. It sounds like you are trying to be a responsible guardian of your male yorkie and are trying to educate yourself prior to committing his sperm. GOOD FOR YOU!
First and foremost is having all of the health/genetic testing done to insure that your stud is healthy, free of known genetic abnormalities than can be passed to his get.
Secondly, you must put your love filled eyes aside - to each of us, in our own eyes, our yorkies are beautiful. If we don't believe that, then we shouldn't have a yorkie in the first place. Generally the way one "proves" that their stud or bitch is breeding quality is by attaining an AKC championship conformation title The purpose of breeding should be for the betterment of the breed, not to produce "cute puppies".
Third, you have to be prepared for the consequences of breeding. It may or may not change the personality of your boy. Breeding males very often become more territorial and mark EVERYTHING.
Fourth, assuming you have a Champion male who has undergone all of the genetic and health testing to assure that he is healthy and free of genetic markers that may indicate weaknesses, you then need to find the owner of a female who has also met all of the criteria for a good breeding bitch.
Fifth, before embarking on this endeavor, find an experienced breeder who will act as your mentor. If you are going to breed, breed right.
The last bit of food for thought is that there are thousands of dogs that are euthanized needlessly every year and breeding an unproven untested dog adds to the problem rather than aids in improving the breed.
Good luck. Hopefully others will provide more indepth information about the consequences of breeding - both good and bad.
