Welcome to YorkieTalk. I really hope you reconsider getting her 'knocked up' this month. There is a lot to breeding small dogs, and it is possible you could lose her in the process. Please go to the breeder section and talk with experienced breeders before you make this leap

1. Is your girl & stud DNA & health tested?
2. Is she & he free from all genetic defects that they can pass along to their pups?
3. Do you know her lines as well as the studs?
4. Do they both come from @ least 7 CH bloodlines?
5. Do you know what to do when an emergency happens during birthing?
6. What if you have to tube feed a pup(s)?
7. Will you be responsible for the placement, well being of the pups, pick the right family so they won't be dumped in a shelter?
8. Do you have a clean conscience that for every pup YOU produce, a homeless pup DIES in the shelter?
If you can answer YES to all the above, wish you all the Best & have a safe & happy whelp...strive to be the best & well respected breeder, not another back yard breeder.

Welcome to YorkieTalk.
Please re-consider "knocking up" your Yorkie. If you explore many of our threads, breeding toy breeds is a very expensive and many times a heart breaking en-devour. There are so many Yorkies that need good homes (visit the new homes needed thread) that are products of over-breeding and also many heart breaking stories of pups/Momma dogs not making it.

Samama - I'm not sure what you do or don't know about whelping. But, if you're not familiar, there is some GREAT information here - look in the Breeders section, as well as the Breeder Library here: Breeding and Breed-Specific Library - YorkieTalk.com Forums - Yorkshire Terrier Community.
If you're not experienced, please please please consider your decision as you would any other life and death situation...bc a Mum and her pups can and do die during whelping; especially if/when there is an inexperienced pet owner. I'm not saying that's you, but I'm saying if it might be you - oh my gosh, protect that little furbaby for the precious thing she is. You don't want to lose her. Breeding is SO unfathomably complicated - I could never, ever do it. It's a huge, complex, risky endeavor that for me, warrants a ton of thought and consideration.
Keep us posted and I hope if you have questions, you'll ask them .

Can you post pics of her finishing with her champion titles, OFA certifications, Chic certs and oh yeah when and how did the health testing go?t
What line does she come from-who'd you get her from on an Full AKC registration-from your mentor?
Who owns the stud-we'd all love to see what a quality male and breeder you are sending your girl to to get knocked up by-are they also a member here?
I imagine you already have experience breeding in the most responsible manner and have studied & practiced under a well known reputable mentor?>
Welcome to Yorkie Talk can't wait to see you update with the connect the dots-people here do that a lot and when you stay here and learn you start to do it too...we all do.
If none of the above can be answered because it hasn't been done, then welcome to Yorkie Talk hope you stick around and learn a lot before any attempts toward the idea of breeding.
Breeding is scary business, mostly because you risk your dog's life and it's so stinking expensive especially with Yorkie's needing those C-sections so very often-and that's when it all goes right.

What considerations have you given that she should be bred? ARe you experienced in breeding/whelping and taking care of orphans or dealing with the pain of losing a bitch in whelp? Or a weak pup struggling for life? What are your plans for the puppies if the breeding etc is successful and one you sell ends up with a genetic issue like Legge Calves Perthes or liver shunt for two examples? Do you have about $2,000 set aside for a middle of the night csection and would you know if she was in trouble? Do you have a vet experienced in c sections on Yorkies?
These are important things to consider and not a decision to be made lightly.

...because seeking online advice about breeding is how it should be...
Considering previous threads f this substance I'm impressed with the responses on this one.
If an OP leaves it's their choice, anyone can say hey I don't like you or your advice I'll just stay and only listen to those who respond with what I want to hear the way I want to hear it.
