In The Beginning

There was Mon Ami

My first Yorkie, Mon Ami, was a holiday gift from my husband, David, the first year we were married (1984) and when I learned she was born on our wedding day it seemed like destiny that she was our “first child”.

Before long we realized that the breeder we bought her from hadn’t been honest with us. Mon Ami had an underbite which we were told would correct itself when her adult teeth came in but of course, it did not. Although we were promised she would be 4 to 5 lbs., before her first birthday, she weighed well over 7 lbs. We’d paid top dollar for what we were told was a “show quality” “teacup” Yorkie puppy with an elite pedigree but we learned that too was not true. We adored Mon Ami and despite the fact that we hadn’t gotten what we paid for, wanted, or expected, or maybe because of it, our love for Yorkies was born and so was the dream that one day we would breed Yorkies of our own and we’d to the right way – striving to create the best Yorkshire Terriers possible, treating our puppy parents with the honesty and respect they deserve, and giving them everything they wanted and MORE!

Let’s Talk Yorkie is that dream come true!

  I am committed to the art of designing Yorkies with stunning faces, healthy bodies, intelligence, and loving dispositions. Creating life is something I take very seriously – my Yorkies come from some of the finest bloodlines worldwide and each litter is carefully planned taking into account health and temperament as well as beauty. A lot of time, effort, education, and money go into ensuring that your family and your Yorkie puppy will have a long, healthy, happy life together and I stand behind every Let’s Talk Yorkie puppy with a written health guarantee and a lifetime of breeder support. 
  Our Yorkshire Terrier puppies are born and hand-raised in my home on the south shore of Long Island, New York. I nurture them from the moment they take their first breath until the moment you take your puppy home with you. And yes, I do fall in love with each and every one of them so I am very careful to select safe, loving homes for my puppies and it is not uncommon for me to ask potential Yorkie puppy parents more questions than they ask me. 
  My favorite thing to do is chat about my furkids so please feel free to give me a call and Let’s Talk Yorkie!

Meet my husband and Let’s Talk Yorkie’s Chief Executive Officer in charge of spoiling the puppies … and our adult Yorkies too!

It takes a village and I am glad that my groomer Mandy and my vet Dr. Selmonsky are part of mine.

We could not have had a better experience selecting a new puppy than with Susan at Let’s Talk Yorkie! Our little Pippa is the love of our lives! She is honestly SUCH a good girl, and was that way from Day 1. She is always happy, loves to fetch her tennis balls, go for walks around the neighborhood and is a feisty little nugget! She has the best personality, she is super smart and has the most expressive eyes! Everywhere we go with her people can’t believe how cute she is. From the very beginning Susan was extremely easy to contact if we had any questions at all and made the whole experience of bringing home a new puppy so wonderful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone wanting a Yorkie puppy!

I have nothing but great things to say about Lets Talk Yorkie. My Mia is such a happy and healthy pretty little girl. When I went to meet my Mia she was in such a great environment all the dogs were so well behaved. I got to meet Mia’s parents and see her interact with them. Susan hertz really cares about her dogs and is a great Breeder.
Thank you for my Mia!

I just have to tell you that Pino is the best dog in the world!!! My husband never had a pet growing up and I keep telling him he doesn't understand how amazing this little pooch is. He's SO smart ... he's potty training AMAZING even in this cold cold weather. He has slept through every single night! He is nothing but pure JOY! We hit the jackpot with this baby boy!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

Hi Susan, I wanted to share something with you. The other night I was going through the videos on my phone and I came across the one of you holding Fiona in the kitchen. I had Fiona on my lap and when I played it, she heard your voice her tail started wagging. I couldn’t believe how excited she was when she heard your voice. I am sure she misses you. It was the cutest thing to see.
She is doing great here and adjusting so well. I just love her to pieces. Her personality is the best and she is absolutely gorgeous.
