Default Eye squinting

We are getting a yorkie poo in 3 weeks and went to visit with her yesterday and noticed she is squinting and keeps closing her left eye and the light seems to bother her eye as well. It appears she might have a little eye irritation going on. She is currently 6 weeks and im worried now. Breeder says it could be a little infection and now im worried

Breeder needs to get this pup to a vet or that would be showing me she doesn’t care about the pups she is breeding for. In the veterinary world any eye issue is considered an emergency because it can can very bad very fast. Also another side note a good breeder of small dogs would also know they should be keeping the pups with mom until 12 weeks. Lots of red flags with this breeder.

I'd be extremely cautious of getting a pup from this breeder, honestly. First, she isn't keeping the pup until 12 weeks - huge red flag right there. But even worse, she has a pup who is *squinting* their eyes! Anytime a dog is not wanting to keep there eyes open, it's a true emergency bc that can mean corneal abrasion etcetera. The fact this breeder has obviously waited to do anything for this poor baby is really unreal. I hope this pup will be okay.

Default Breeder

My breeder had the vet look at her right away and it was a little infection. She is being treated with antibiotic and sends me pictures daily of her progress.

She is a very vigilant licensed breeder who cares deeply for every one of her pups. And AKC state pups can be weened and released between 8-12 weeks. Hannah will be close to 9 weeks when we pick her up.

Our breeder goes above and beyond to make sure her pups are healthy and has the vet in every Friday to looks at any newborns and any pups that need attention. All pups are kept in her very large home, which is very organized. All pups are kept with their littermates and seperated 2 x 2 then eventually in their own space to avoid seperation anxiety. All pups have adult, as well as children attention to acclimate ea one and socialized

They r pee pad trained, taught that barking is rude and when u enter their space and there are 27 well organized pens and pups and u can carry on a conversation and hear yourself talking u know they are well taken care of. So anyone who suggested she is not a good breed is way off base

Thank you for your concern

I'm sorry that the truth isn't easy to hear, but we're telling you the truth. Please go to The Yorkshire Terrier Club of America -- this is the organization that sets the standards and code of ethics for all 'reputable' breeders of yorkies.

If you go first to this page, go to the bottom right and click on "Code of Ethics and Conduct" in the bottom right - that will download the pdf for that information. You can also go to this page, and click on "What is the best age to buy a yorkie?" - and that will download the pdf. Here is part of what the pdfs say about puppy buying:

If you are seeking a family pet a reputable Yorkshire Terrier Breeder will not release a puppy to a new home before it is twelve (12) weeks old. This ensures the puppy is old enough to have had some of its shots, has been checked by a veterinarian, and a health certificate issued. The puppy’s ears should be erect, and you can generally tell what size the puppy will be at maturity when it is twelve weeks old by doubling the weight. Although not a definite rule it is generally thought that if a twelve week old Yorkie puppy is three pounds it will likely be six pounds at maturity. Also, by twelve weeks the puppy should be outgoing and well socialized so it will easily accept the transition of leaving its mother and siblings.

From the Code of Ethics:
All puppies leaving the breeders possession will be a minimum of twelve (12) weeks of age to facilitate adequate socialization as well as appropriate emotional and temperament development through interaction with siblings, dam and other dogs.

Thank you for your concern
I see you have changed your user name....
If you're so confident about your breeder why would you come on a forum stating you're worried. You aired your concern, forum gave their concerns, now you're defending your breeder.

Enjoy your little baby.

your 2nd concern
Eye size question Is it possible for a yorkie poo to have two slightly different size eyes? My friend says her dogs eyes look different


Did you ask this question to the breeder that you have so much confidence in.

I got my first Yorkie from a breeder I found advertised in the local paper (this was in 1999). He was 9 weeks old. Didn't know anything about pups were to stay with their mother until a least 12 weeks. I lost Teddy at age 14 from liver failure. My current Gidget will be 3 on January 21. I found her on the internet from a breeder. She was 6 1/2 weeks old. I hesitated about getting her bc of the 12 week rule but fell in love with her. Had just lost my husband of 55 years and was very vulnerable and lonely. I brought her home, took her to my Vet and he said she was in very good health for a 6 week old. Started having concern bc of the things I was reading on this forum and was hesitant about loving her too much in case something went wrong. As of now, the only Vet visits we have are for her 1 year check up and getting her heartworm and flea meds. I know I am very fortunate that everything is okay with her. The breeder gave me papers to take her to the Vet within 2 days and report back to her if he found any issues. Love my little cuddle buddy!

The AKC doesnt write whats best for the breeds the breed clubs do. The Yorkshire terrier club of America says the puppies should stay with their moms until 12 weeks. We have all been there and know what happens when you get a puppy to young and from a bad breeder and its not good. Your choice to continue to go ahead even though you have been told. When we keep bad breeders in business we are just as bad as the breeders.

I wouldn't recommend anyone to purchase a Yorkie puppy who was less than 12 weeks old. I was very fortunate in Teddy and Gidget. If I had it to do over again, I would find a breeder who kept the pups until 12 weeks.
