Sugar-Rush Yorkie Baby

Sugar-Rush Yorkie, “Shimmer”

I’m interested! How do I start the purchase process?

Your first step in our process is to complete the puppy interest form: http://sugarrushyorkies.com/puppy-purchase. Peruse the website to become familiar with us, our fur-family and our purchase process including pricing and deposit information.

Are Sugar-Rush Yorkies litter-box trained, paper or trained to ‘go’ outside?

A well trained and house broken dog is a dream pet! Sugar-Rush Yorkie babies are introduced to litter-box training and paper training at 2 weeks. They begin learning to potty on command outside around 5 weeks of age. In addition we recommend The Puppy Apartment as it makes the transition to their new home easy with regard to potty training. *Code “SUGAR” will get you 5% discount off their already discounted prices!

How much will my puppy cost?

Sugar-Rush Yorkies are priced at $1200. – $1500.

How does my deposit work? What if I change my mind?

Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferrable $400 and signifies intent on behalf of the purchaser to follow through with the purchase transaction of the puppy. No puppy will be held without a deposit. Deposits are applied towards the cost of your Sugar-Rush Yorkie and are taken on a first come, first served basis, from ‘qualified’ families. For example the person who places the first deposit, gets first pick, second deposit – second pick, you get the picture. (Breeder may decide to keep a puppy from the litter, in that case she get’s first pick.) 

Once I place a deposit on a future litter how long will I have to wait for a puppy?

I am a small, family-owned, Yorkshire Terrier Breeder. Breeding yorkies is not my full time job. Nursing is my lifes-work, Yorkies are my hearts-work! We have very few litters a year, 3 litters max. The wait could be 3 to 4 months.

When will my puppy be ready to come home?

Puppies are ready to join their new families between 10 and 12 weeks of age. This is up to the breeder and veterinarians discretion.

Can I contact you if I have questions regarding care and keeping of my new puppy?

Our puppies are very special to us and we want them to have the happiest life possible. That’s why we offer Lifetime Breeder Support; we will continue to be here for you to answer any questions or concerns for the lifetime of your puppy. Additionally, we offer a Lifetime Return Policy;  we will take back the puppy if you are unable to keep your pet for any reason.

Do you offer refunds?

Puppy sales are final and non-refundable. 

Will my yorkie be AKC registered?

Yes, you will receive an American Kennel Club (AKC) registration form after you’ve submited proof from your veterinarian that your puppy has been neutered / spayed.  

What is included with my puppy’s health guarantee?

Your puppy is guaranteed to be free of all congenital defects and genetic disorders up until 1 year of age. Refer to the Health Guarantee for further details.

Can you guarantee my puppy will be 3 pounds? 4 pounds? 5 pounds?

Our puppies are *typically 3.0 – 5.0 pounds full-grown. I base this guesstimate on the size of the parents of the puppies and the previous litters produced, and while every attempt is made to properly gauge the size of the puppy at adulthood, it must be understood that this is an educated guess, based on reasonable assumptions.

Can I do a pickup instead of having my puppy shipped?

Yes, please! This is preferred. We also offer the option of meeting-up. If you live under 100 miles away, we will meet you halfway. A small charge will be incurred to offset our travel expenses. If the puppy has not been paid for at time of pickup, cash or a money order are the only acceptable payment options. No personal checks are accepted. 

Can I use my puppy for breeding?

No. Sugar-Rush Yorkies are sold as companion puppies with limited AKC Registration. 

What should I feed my new yorkie?

We primarily feed our adult yorkies homemade dog food. On occasion they receive Blue Buffalo Basics. We start our yorkie babies on Blue Buffalo Basics Puppy Turkey and Potato. You will receive a sample supply in your New Puppy Kit.
