Everyone who meets our Let’s Talk Yorkie puppy, Jake Ryan, is instantly in love with his adorable face and loving personality. He is so playful and also very affectionate and easy going. He is our dream dog! Even at the vets office, he’s treated like a little celebrity. Susan takes the extra time to get to know her prospective owners and asks them exactly what they are looking for in their Yorkie baby. Her aim is to match you with the perfect puppy and she is also there for support or follow-up questions if you need her. What a wonderful experience!

When it came to finding my new baby Leo, I did a lot of searching for a new breeder. As an experienced Yorkie mom, I’ve had 5, getting 2 from pet stores and 3 from a local breeder I knew what I wanted to hear when speaking to Susan from Let’s Talk Yorkie. The love, concern, and care she puts forth when “interviewing” you is incredible. It was like speaking to an old friend. She only wants to send her babies to the best qualified and loving homes.
 
I filled out the application and waited a few months for Leo to arrive, and it was well worth the wait. He is a beautiful, loving, sweet, and very active little boy.
 
Susan knew that I would be traveling by air with him frequently and she chose the correct temperament between him and his brother. She knew he would be a little more independent and be a better traveler. Susan definitely put a lot of thought into making a perfect match.
 
The Let’s Talk Yorkie website is extremely informative and Susan is always open for you to contact her with any questions.
 
I can’t wait for my next LTY puppy!

As a first-time dog owner, finding the perfect Yorkie breeder was a challenge. I had been in contact with a few other breeders, but none of them felt like the one. After my meet-and-greet phone call with Susan, I knew my search was over. We spent about an hour discussing the breeding process, my lifestyle, and how I planned to take care of my future baby. I could tell that she was very selective about the homes that she chooses and it was an honor to have been selected. Susan kept in touch with updates and pictures of my puppy before my arrival to bring her home. The entire experience felt very personable and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect angel.
 
My dog, Juicy, is the most wonderful addition to my family. She is playful, intelligent, and loves to cuddle in my arms. She is very well behaved which makes it easy for me to take her everywhere I go. She listens to commands and is perfectly potty trained but endearingly stubborn on walks (she likes to choose her own path lol)! To top it all off, she is adorable. She has the most beautiful long silky coat, big brown eyes, and cute little button nose that make my heart melt. Juicy is loved and adored by everyone she meets and I am so blessed to have her in my life. 
 
Thank you for letting me love your baby.

Our experience with Let’s Talk Yorkie was as perfect as the 2 puppies that joined our family.  From the first phone call where we chatted for an hour (about Yorkies of course) right through the whole process Susan was so easy to work with.  It was so obvious how much the puppies were loved and cared for in her home.  I had no doubt that this was the breeder for us.
 
We have a very active lifestyle which includes traveling between NY and Florida often. Susan assured us she would choose a puppy that would fit this lifestyle.  We put our faith in her and she came through for us. Jensen, is the sweetest, calmest, most affectionate little boy. People always comment on how quiet and of course adorable he is! 
 
When Jensen was 2 we decided he needed a brother (I needed another puppy too). I called Susan and gave her details of Jensen’s personality.  She contacted me a couple of months later about a puppy she thought would work with our lifestyle and Jensen’s personality.  Once again Susan made the perfect match. Stuart is the most confident, silly, and absolutely adorable little boy.  The pups are so cute together and we take them everywhere we go.  Needless to say they get a lot of attention because they are so darn cute!!  They are the light of our lives. I can’t thank Susan enough for her expertise, attentiveness, and loving nature.  Let’s Talk Yorkie puppies are one of a kind and the whole experience from beginning to end was amazing.

From the first time I spoke to Susan I knew she would be the one we would get our puppy from. She clearly knows her business, knows her puppies, and we were confident she would select the right puppy for us. All her puppies are beautiful and our boy Tito is a beauty. Susan nailed it when she selected him for us. We love him so much, you were spot on with him he does have a naughty streak which is so much fun. He has quickly become the king of our castle. Thank you Susan for your continued support, we know we can always call for advice.

Just want to let you know we are so in love with our precious puppy “PEEPS”. He’s adjusting beautifully. Sleeps in his bed all night. Eats well. Plays all the time!! Knows his name but if he doesn’t want to listen, he doesn’t. Our house is a home again.

Susan, my Izzy is ten years old. I just cannot believe it. She is such a joy. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving us such a beautiful, fun, and loving Yorkie. My husband and Izzy are inseparable.  She loves him so much and he is totally her go to guy. She barks and he jumps. So funny. He never had the opportunity to be with CoCo and Quigley like he has with Izzy because he was working. Taylor says she has been replaced as our only daughter. She and Izzy have a very special relationship. When she comes home Izzy only has eyes for her. I pray every night that she will be happy and healthy for many more years. I love that you are so selective about the families that your precious babies go to. Izzy is such a gift. We adore her.

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.

I’ve always loved Yorkies and for most of my life always seemed to have them around the house. But that was many years ago when Whitney, Casey & Roxie blessed us with their presence. Some ten years passed now and having retired to Florida with my husband we decided we needed another Yorkie in our lives. So the quest began to find the right breeder— the BEST breeder— we could. Little did we know this search would take us almost two years and only by sheer luck did we succeed. 
 
By chance, and while shopping, I met a woman holding one of the most beautiful Yorkies I’ve ever seen. This is when I learned of Susan Hertz and LTY. It only took several conversations with Susan to realize she was the real deal. I instantly knew Yorkies were her world and her love. And it was so refreshing to have her thoroughly “interview” both of us to confirm we were worthy of one of her pups. Shortly after I received a call from Susan letting me know she had a pup ready to go. After looking at photos and learning more about the pup Susan asked, “Well when would you like to pick her up?” Within a week I was flying from West Palm to JFK to pick up my new baby . . . Lola! (And yes, “whatever Lola wants Lola gets!”). She’s two years old, 4.9 pounds and pure love!
 
Throughout this whole journey Susan has been a mentor, a guide, and a friend. She is always there to help and share her wisdom. I keep in touch frequently and hopefully some day soon we’ll be looking for a new playmate for Lola.
 
Thank you Susan for what you do . . . who you are . . . and for the passion you have for these amazing creatures of love & joy!

When we were finally ready to welcome a new Yorkie into our lives after our previous Yorkie crossed over the rainbow bridge, we came across Susan at Let’s Talk Yorkie and filled out the detailed and quite impressive application.  We were on a waiting list and when Susan emailed me if I was still interested in a female puppy I felt like I hit the lottery.  Susan sent me pictures of the puppy, the puppy’s mom and dad, and information about all three.  She explained all the things we needed to get ready for our new puppy from food to sleeping arrangements and safety concerns.  When we picked the puppy up and met Susan in person we felt like we knew her forever.  She not only handed this adorable little fur baby over to us but gave us a very thought-out care package full of food, toys, a ducky, and pink blankie with the puppy’s mom’s scent on it.  Susan really thinks of everything and cares so much for her fur babies.  She is very careful in selecting the right families for her puppies.  Our Phoebe was so easy to paper train right from the start and has the sweetest and friendliest personality.  She loves to play and go for walks but especially loves going in her carriage and going for car rides.  We thank the Lord every day for bringing Susan at Let’s Talk Yorkie into our lives and the lives of so many happy and grateful families.  You know you are in excellent hands when choosing Susan at Let’s Talk Yorkie.  She is very friendly, knowledgeable, passionate, and the best, most dedicated Yorkie breeder out there!!

Hey Susan, I just want to tell you how Wally is… he is perfect! He is the love of our lives. Isabella can’t get enough kisses and snuggles. He loves to lay on our lap and get belly rubs. He is spoiled already. Oh well, how can we not. It’s his favorite. He is getting big and does big boy things like go potty outside and lays in his bed. He also waits and sits for his food and toys.. he loves to play and go on car rides. He is silly and sweet and a little bad.. lol! Definitely a puppy! We can’t thank you enough for the joy you have brought to our home. It’s just the beginning of many years of love from this little guy.

Hi Susan , As you are well aware, we are so in love with our baby Ollie. He has brought so much joy to our family.

Ollie has grown up to be a whopping 5lbs and is full of so much energy. He has a bin of toys that he loves to stick his head into and choose which toy he wants to play with. He has favorites and loves to play fetch with them. He loves to snuggle and get belly rubs every morning. He begs for carrots and loves a good bone to chew on. When we allow him to run free in our yard (we always have our eyes on him) he sprints in circles with such happiness. He loves being outside and loves his walks. He thinks he’s as big as other dogs and always wants to go up to them no matter what size, to say hello. He’s just super playful and loves people. He’s friendly to everyone that comes into our house and loves to bark when the doorbell rings. (We have a Beware of Dog sign in our window that the kids think is so funny)

I will say we’ve also been so lucky with his sleeping situation. He’s slept through the night since we got him. A few times he’s barked in the middle of the night and I’ve gone downstairs to check on him and he just needs to go to the bathroom. When he is let out of his cage in the am by our kids, he automatically runs upstairs to our bed, lays on me, licks me good morning and will snuggle right next to me. It’s my absolute favorite thing ever!!!!

UPDATE – in March 2021 Gunnar joined big brother Ollie

I visited a few different breeders before I met Susan. Immediately after contacting Let’s Talk Yorkie, I had to answer questions about how the puppy would be cared for, my living situation, etc. I loved how diligent, responsive and kind Susan was. She sure loves and cares about these puppies and makes certain they will go to good homes. In return, I get to spend everyday with Brutus – the single best thing that has ever happened to me. He is healthy, happy and so loving. I had many questions immediately after getting him, and to this day (3 years later) Susan is checking in and willing to answer questions. I can’t imagine getting a puppy anywhere else!

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!

Susan we loved meeting you, our experience with you from the first day to the day we took our baby girl home was smooth as silk. When I was filling out the form I was surprised with the amount of question being asked! But it all made sense! You paired us with our Nala and she fits right in with our family and of course Simba our Morkie who is one year older than her , and he totally loves her . We recommend you to our friends and family and personally we could never get a puppy from any one but you! Thank you!

It all started with one of Susan’s perfect fur babies, Miley. In my eyes Miley was THE MOST PERFECT little pup. Then she had to tell me that Miley”s mom was having another litter, hence came Benji. It wasn’t long after that, when I was told me that Momma Teddi was due to have her last litter. It took a lot of convincing my husband, but I finally won. Then came little Sami. After all of that convincing she turned out to be a Daddy’s girl and won’t leave my husband’s side. My 3 fur babies are the most perfect trio.

Susan not only sold me the dogs, but she is a constant source of information whenever I have a yorkie concern. I would never think of buying a dog other then a puppy from LET’S TALK YORKIE.

I am blessed with 2 LTY pups. Susan is an amazing breeder and I trust her more than I trust my Vet. She is not only a phenomenal Yorkie breeder but she is also very knowledgeable about Yorkies. Susan helped me from the beginning by choosing the perfect pups for me and is always there for me when I have questions. I not only have 2 beautiful pups who I treasure but I also have a friend for life. I will never ever get a Yorkie from anyone but Susan. I highly recommend her. BTW I traveled from north west PA to Long Island NY which is a 8 hour drive and will do it again in a heart beat for another LTY pup!

As a fellow Yorkshire terrier Breeder there are very few people I would buy a Yorkie from or entrust with one of my Yorkies, however Susan is top notch and I would not hesitate to buy a dog from her or sell a dog to her. I have been to her home and I know how well taken care of and loved they are. Susan is extremely picky about where she places her Yorkies I wish more breeders had her breeding ethics.

Janice F.
December 2017

We got our first Yorkie from a breeder online and while we loved him to death,he was not the one we picked out. Due to a tragic accident we lost him at 4 years old. I was absolutely heartbroken. Within a week my husband realized I needed another dog. I was sure that no one would think that I was a suitable fur parent because we had lost him so recently. My daughter called Susan and I ended up talking to her for over an hour. Yes, she asked A LOT of questions but these were her babies! The puppies were not going to be ready for about 4 weeks but she kept me informed the entire time. She was very concerned about picking the right baby for us and our lifestyle. Finally, we went to pick him up and I can’t tell you how impressed I was with his environment. I was able to meet his parents plus several of her babies. It was wonderful to see how he interacted with the others. When we got him home I realized how different this experience was from the last one. He was very confident and not afraid of anything. His personality I’m sure is due to the love and attention he received as a baby. We have now had him for just over a month and couldn’t be happier. Susan is always available for questions. The only problem is I want another!

UPDATE … Janice got her wish! She and her family welcomed their second LTY puppy into the family in October 2018.

First, let’s talk about Susan. She’s professional, smart, caring, and has your best interest at heart. She’s the real deal and she knows what she is doing. She spent more than an hour on the phone with me asking the right questions to understand my home, me, and the needs of my family in terms of finding the right puppy for us. Incredible. She is meticulous in how she breeds her Yorkies She truly knows what she is doing. 
 
Now, let’s talk about Susan’s dogs. When we bring Rocky Pepper out with us (often), we get stopped by everyone because he is the most adorable, well mannered dog in the world. He loves everyone and everyone loves him. I have never seen cuter Yorkie puppies than Susan’s Yorkie puppies. She clearly knows what she’s doing when it comes to breeding the best looking, but also best behaved dogs. Rocky Pepper is truly the best gift we have ever brought into our family!
 
Susan, thank you for what you do, the care you give and the attention you put into your clients! 
UPDATE – in February 2022 Vanessa and family brought home their 2nd LTY pup, a little girl they call Rikki Bobbi

Back in 2015, I lost my Amaretto and was devastated. I found you on AKC studied your website and completed the required application. In October, I picked up my little girl, met her parents and today Gia is a perfect Yorkshire Terrier (her vet says she is the prettiest and truest she has ever seen).
Thank you for my Gia, and thank you for being the BEST of THE BEST – your puppies are platinum. You are a true professional and I am certainly lucky you have one of your puppies.

Thank you and Happy Holidays

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!!!!

My experience with Let’s Talk Yorkie was as close to perfect as possible. The process, and Susan Hertz in particular, was professional, informational, thorough and, above all, demonstrated a dedication for placing the puppy in a safe, loving home. Susan Hertz is extremely knowledgeable about the Yorkshire Terrier breed and breeding history. She is more than happy to discuss any aspect of the breed, her lines and, of course, the puppies.

Meticulous is the key impression I came away with after my interaction/purchase was complete. From the initial contact, there is screening of the client (me). I was questioned about my history with dogs and which veterinarian I used. I did not mind this at all, it gave me the impression that I was dealing with a professional who truly cared about the future for the puppies she so carefully and lovingly raises. The wait for a pup can be longer than some are used to but Mrs. Hertz thoughtfully breeds her dogs with a frequency that has the health and well being of the parents in mind. All of this information is readily available of the Let’s Talk Yorkie website, so there are no surprises. In conclusion, all I can say is that getting one of LTY’s pups is worth the wait. My Ruby is a true gem and gives me unending joy.

If you want a healthy beautiful Yorkshire Terrier, Let’s Talk Yorkie is the absolute best place to go.

It’s been almost a year since we first got Oliver from Susan and it is hard to imagine our lives without him. He is an incredibly well-bread, healthy and affectionate dog.

Susan made becoming puppy parents a very positive and enjoyable experience for us. She involved us in every step of the way and did a great job helping us select the puppy that was right for us based on the personality of the puppy’s parents (which are her own pets) and the personality traits she observed from raising the litter. In addition, she went above and beyond by allowing us to visit her house frequently during Oliver’s first weeks. This allowed us to bond with Oliver at a very young age and helped ease the transition to his new home.

Even after taking Oliver home, Susan has always been available via phone or email for questions, concerns and advice literally around the clock. She is incredibly responsive and insightful, providing personal experience/know how over a range of issues: which dog food is best (she’s tried them all), which treats work best (ditch that raw hide – even if the vet gives it to you) and how to forgo the wee wee pads and use hospital pads for an indoor potty trained dog!

On a final note, as a NYC bound dog, Susan did a wonderful job socializing/preparing Oliver for the sounds and stresses of the city. From day one, she exposed the puppies to city sounds on TV / recordings. No puppy is put in a cage on its own like in a pet store. The puppies play together and are socialized with the other, older Yorkies.

I highly recommend Susan to any one considering welcoming a little Yorkie into their lives. She is an excellent breeder and a truly caring and amazing person.

Dear Susan,

I wanted to thank you for my little cuddle muffin, Gizmo. I can not tell you how wonderful he is! He has helped me through my chemo treatments, when I came home feeling tired and all the other stuff he comes and kisses me and then snuggles right on my belly. He is the best thing that has happened to this family. He makes us laugh at his little antics and he is so smart and quick to learn. He has such a great personality, we had our first spa day and he was such a good boy (I stayed to watch what they were doing) I’m very protective of him LOL. All of my children (all adults) fell in love with him, everyone wants to keep him if we go away, I keep telling them he’s coming with me! Thank you for being there when I called frantically when he was not eating. I will send you some updated pictures of Gizmo. He is such a good little boy and we love him to pieces!

Thanks again for all of your advise, pretty sweet for a breeder to give a girl advise about a Yorkie she did not even get from that breeder … again thank you! And if I ever do get Snickers a friend I will be talking to you about that. I recommend you to every person who asks about getting a Yorkie themselves because you are extremely knowledgeable.

Marissa – Sayville, NY

As a child, my brother and I always begged for a dog but we were never allowed to get one since we were a family who was always on the go. As soon as I was done with college in 2008, I started “dog hunting”. I had my heart set on getting a Yorkie. Over the years, I visited many pet stores but refused to purchase a dog there due to all the horror stories, puppy mills, sick dogs, horrible environments, etc. I was really hoping to adopt a Yorkie but it just wasn’t working out for me. I wasn’t finding the “right” fit for me at any of the adoption agencies. Then someone gave me Susan’s phone number and told me how wonderful she is with both people and dogs! I looked her up on the Internet, reading through her website and then I immediately called her. After our first phone conversation, I felt that her and her breeding style would be perfect for me. She was very interested in my lifestyle and making sure I would give a good life to one of her puppies. I was thrilled to see how much she cared about her dogs and where they were going to end up and not just about the pay check.

A few weeks later I went to her home to meet her dogs and see the environment these puppies grow up in. I was so impressed by her and her home, where she breeds the dogs. These dogs are not “breeding dogs”- they are HER dogs, HER pets and she treats them like her children. She gave up 2 hours to sit with me, answering any questions I had, concerns I had, and allowed me to play with the pups. I immediately fell in love with one little baby, even though I was planning to purchase a puppy from a later litter. I became obsessed with this one little boy; I had to have him! I also loved the fact that I got to meet both of his parents and even see a picture of one of his grandma puppy over in Europe! You don’t get that with a pet store puppy! I went back to visit with “my” little puppy and with Susan a few times before he was old enough to come home with me. Being a puppy-virgin, Susan was extremely helpful in getting me set up and giving me all the information, knowledge and guidance I would need to becomea great Yorkie mommy. She answered the millions of questions I had and gave me so many great resources.

Once I took this little boy home with me, I fell even more in love with him! He is my world! Bait has the best personality and most playful temperament, not to mention he is the cutest thing I’ve ever laid eyes on! He is extremely friendly and loves both people and other dogs. Everyone that meets him falls in love with him! He is so sweet and loves to be held and cuddled! He gives so many kisses and learned many tricks within a short time period. He makes me smile and laugh all day! I could go on forever about him! Any time I have a question, I know I can call Susan and she will have the perfect answer for me. Now, I brag about Susan and give out her name and number whenever anyone inquires about getting a Yorkie! She is AMAZING!

Thank you Susan for allowing me to become a FURever home to Bait and part of your Lets Talk Yorkie family!

“Dear Susan,

Just writing to let you know how much love and joy Bentley has brought to our home and especially Valentina. A diagnosis of a deadly Pediatric Cancer for our 5 yr old has given us a lot of pain and sadness. Our Yorkie makes us laugh and smile when we need it most. Valentina loves to cuddle him when she is relaxing her tired body. His puppy personality is fantastic and he is simply stunning…an added bonus! Thank you for allowing us to become “Let’s Talk Yorkie” parents to our little guy 🙂 Keep up the good work!”

Susan was so helpful during our search for our puppy and has been there for us every step of the way, always available to give advice and support. We cannot thank her enough!!”

“I just have to thank Susan for Hulk. I was very worried about finding a good breeder in NY but after talking to Susan, I could tell that she loved her puppies and treated each one like they were her own kids.

From day one Hulk was loved and taken care of before I picked him up and I believe it made his transition with me much easier. He is just so wonderful and yes, he is great with women 🙂 Susan, thank you again for everything!”

“A few years ago I had the terrible misfortune of purchasing a Yorkie puppy with out doing my homework first; sadly Theodore passed away a few months after his 1st birthday from Liver Shunt Disease. It was a horrible ordeal, we did all we could to save his precious little life but in the end we had to let him go. Left broken hearted and distraught I knew it would be impossible to purchase another baby so we poured all our love into his play mate Charlie, who is a year younger then him. Two years passed by and our hearts slowly mended but there was this absence of watching two little Yorkies chasing one another and bringing nothing but pure joy to our life’s. Our little boy Charlie needed someone to play with since the cat only gave him but so much attention. As any Yorkie owner knows once a Yorkie lover always a Yorkie lover so I knew this time I had to do my homework and investigate deep into prospective breeders. One disappointment after another and I was about to give up. I decided I would pray on this and wait for an answer. Then it comes to me -go to the web-site that helped us through our grieving for Theodore. A website filled with Yorkie experts, owners, breeders and vets. I can’t tell you how many loving Yorkie lovers wrote us and shared stories of their own, complete strangers reaching out and sending us love and support through one of the hardest times in our lives. Sure enough they had a VERY short list of recommended breeders in our area and this is where we discovered Susan from Lets Talk Yorkie. I knew from our very first conversation that she cared more about finding a good home for her babies than making money. I put on my private investigator hat and went to work! This one was a winner, you know you’re on the right track when you’re on the telephone with a Breeder in Kansas and she highly recommends this breeder in NY. Now all I had to do was convince this woman to let me come out on New Years Eve and bring this precious baby home. Next I needed to convince my daughter to put her evening on hold to come with me on a 3 hour round trip. Susan understood I only had a few vacation days left and I wanted to be home with the new baby to help her adjust to our home and Charlie so she agreed. Trust me this was not easy, first she had to approve of us after asking me several dozen questions in those previous conversations we also needed to see if there was a love connection with the little baby. Don’t even think for a minute that all Yorkies are the same, because each has their own unique personality. Finally we arrive at Susan’s home and we are greeted with hand sanitizer and asked to remove our shoes to keep the germs out. A woman after my own heart both my daughter and I immediately chuckle. After a short conversation she brings out this precious baby girl who instantly flies into my daughters arms and it was love at first sight. Our hearts were once again filled and we knew Theodore was looking down on us and smiling. This little bundle of joy, Lexi short for Lexington has been a part of our family for two months now and not a week goes by that we don’t hear from Susan. I consider her a part of my family and know we made the right choice. Thank you Susan for all the love and integrity you put into bringing the sweetest baby Yorkies into this world.

Warmest regards,”

“I believe the single most important consideration when buying a dog from a breeder is to make sure that the breeder has integrity. Let me tell you my experience with Susan of “Let’s Talk Yorkie”.
I live halfway across the country from my seriously ill elderly mother. Her condition has rapidly progressed to the point that she is wheelchair bound and only has sensation and use of one arm. I visit very frequently and during my last visit she was reflecting on the happy memories of her Yorkie she had in her younger years and how she longed to hold one again. She is facing a very difficult surgery in a couple of weeks and I wanted so much help her to make every day count.
I searched for a pet therapy organization but could not find one that would visit a private home, much less have a Yorkie “on staff”. I searched the web and had an idea to call a breeder in the area to see if they perhaps knew of more pet therapy organizations. I was immediately drawn to the Let’s Talk Yorkie web site. The loving and personal descriptions of the dogs and the happy homes they went to indicated to me that a caring person was involved in the business of breeding these gorgeous dogs.
I e-mailed Susan, she almost immediately called me. She asked me some important questions about my Mom’s situation, realized I was running out of time and options and asked me how I would feel if she brought her sweet “Harley” to visit my Mom! This is a woman with integrity and a big heart. She not only brought Harley to sit in Mom’s lap but was kind enough to take pictures. My Mom called to tell me she has gotten THREE kisses from Harley and now, even days later, she said she could still feel the warmth and comfort of that little body and his “butterfly kisses”. Words cannot express how thankful I am to Susan – it really was the most tangible way to express my love for my Mom; after all, the first Yorkie in our house was my childhood wish fulfilled by my Mom !
Please consider the priceless quality of integrity when making the important choice of choosing a breeder. There just isn’t a better person than Susan to help you make your Yorkie wish come true.”
