Beginning in 1973, I have had a long history with AKC Yorkshire
I'm a small breeder, striving for quality rather than quantity.
I've shown AKC Yorkies in shows in Georgia, Florida and
Alabama, and know what it takes to produce a beautiful show
dog. I've even shown my Yorkies in Obedience classes, and
won! My Yorkie puppies are bred and socialized as family
pets. I try not to breed the unhealthy, frail dogs nicknamed
"micro teacups". The American Kennel Club and the Yorkshire
Terrier Club of America (YTCA) frown on the "tiny teacup
yorkies" and discourage them from being shown, due to many
health problems. Carter Yorkie puppies are from healthy old
fashioned lines and multi-Champion pedigrees. They range in
weight from 3-7 lbs normally. My AKC Yorkie puppies for sale
match the AKC standard, and are happy and healthy. Clients
often comment on how smart and calm they are. That is a sign
of a well raised pup. My Yorkie pups are special because of
the love, care and attention they start with.
"Once a person has owned a Yorkie, there is no doubt he will
always own a Yorkie. He is the most adorable charmer....happy
being the doll in the doll carriage, watching tv with the boss, or
helping cook dinner, one eye cocked to the chance that a tidbit
might fall, which naturally - in order to be a help- he will
immediately remove from the floor." "Be he a big Yorkie or a
tiny one, he is endowed with a marvelous intelligence and a
most valiant spirit." ...from the Complete Yorkshire Terrier.
I have found their descriptions so true. I had a big Yorkie who
would accompany me everywhere, even on my horse rides,
running for miles, until he looked so tired I'd have pity on him
and ride him the rest of the way on my saddle. They are truly
valiant and loyal, a great companion for anyone. - Ms. Lisa

The Yorkshire Terrier, fondly called the "Yorkie" by
millions of enthusiasts, has overtaken the beloved
Golden Retriever and the iconic German Shepherd to
become the second most popular purebred dog in
America according to 2008 AKC registration figures.
We did it again in 2009!
Over the last decade, AKC data has pointed to a rise
in popularity of smaller breeds. However, not since
the Boston Terrier nearly 70 years ago has such a
small dog achieved such notable status. The
popularity of the Yorkie and many other small breeds
indicates that dog enthusiasts are doing their
research and choosing a portable, pint-sized breed
which fits the fast-paced lifestyle of many modern

|Hello My Friend,
Just thought I would sent a photo of Tink. I had just
finished combing her and she decided to fix her hair
herself - she shook her head. She is so awesome. What a
joy. Thanx so much for breeding such wonderful pups.

Thanks for all the great info. Opal is
having her spay surgery today and I am
praying all will go well. She's such a part
of the family, and I get a kick out of
seeing my sons with her. We all love
her! I will send more pics hopefully
|"Momma got her little boy today.
He has been vetted and all is
good. My sister and I got to
surprise mom with him. It was
special since she had lost her Pug
recently. She sure was happy to
get that little charming fellow. I can
not thank you enough! :-) He put a
smile on my mom's face. I have
enjoyed your website at Carter

|Here's a letter from one of our happy clients who had a bad experience with
another Yorkie breeders puppy.
"Hello Lisa, I know it must seem like I am ungrateful as I haven’t written to you
before now. I am sorry for the delay but I honestly have been so nervous about
loving Daisey because of our past experience. I was very nervous that something
would happen to her. She has gravitated to me and I cannot believe how much she
loves me. She always wants to be with me, sleeps on my shoulders ALL THE TIME
and even cuddles with me in bed! I have NEVER had a puppy like her before. Each
day I allow myself to love her more and more and now she totally has my heart. She
is such a joy and I enjoy every moment with her, even when she makes mistakes in
"I also want to tell you that I am truly grateful to have found you, a wonderful, caring
breeder. As I stated, the past experience was emotionally draining and traumatizing
for me. You have been kind and patient to me and understanding what we have
gone through. You could not have chosen a better puppy for me. Thank you for
"Daisey is doing great and being spoiled ALL the time. She gets attention wherever
she goes and has more toys than the average child. Her temperament and
disposition is amazing! She loves riding in the car and going places with me. I am
enjoying her so much. Thank you once again."
|Just wanted to update you on
Bentley. He is almost 6 months old
now and weighs 4 pounds! He is a
very quiet, loving, and sweet pup!
House-training is coming along
wonderfully. He will go to the door to
let us know he needs to go out and
goes eight hours in his crate with no
accidents. He can dance, sit, lay, and
bow. I have enclosed a pic for you to
see just how big he's gotten.

Myra's girl)...she is doing so well!
She is still SO sweet and seems to
be SO happy! She runs around like
crazy, she eats really well (dry
food) and everyone that meets her,
loves her to death!!!! She has been
with my daughter for a week, but
came to visit me at home today.
She seemed to remember me (or at
least like me again)!!! She is just a
delight, and such a wonderful
addition to our family! She is
SSSOOOO my daughter's doggie!!!!!
Here are a couple of really cute
pics. that I took today...she and my
