Thinking about getting another Yorkie
Last summer we lost our Yorkie Calvin. He was only 12 and suffered from a degenerative back disease. Although he was really a quirky guy with several behavioral issues we loved him. It was a difficult time to see him go.
In any case we still have 2 long coat chis and are thinking of adding another yorkie. I found a breeder in Zillah Wa that seems solid. I am open to input about mixing chihuahuas and Yorkies. The Yorkie was here first and he was pretty accepting of other dogs. My older chi is a little cranky so I am wondering how she will react at this point.
Thanks ahead of time for comments

Hi and welcome to YT ! I've seen chis and yorkies get along super well...I really just think it depends on the dogs and the parents, and some time and patience.
Just be very, VERY careful in choosing a breeder as there are health issues common to yorkies - and to avoid those, you want a very ethical breeder as unhealthy yorkies have been bred to death.
