    ATTENTION PUPPY PARENTS IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU DO YOUR RESEARCH WHEN WANTING TO ADOPT A SHORKIE PUPPY.

THIS WEBSITE IS IN NO WAY TO TELL YOU WHERE YOU SHOULD GET YOUR SHORKIE FROM. IT IS NOT THE INTENT OF THIS SITE OR THE CREATOR DO DISCREDIT OR  SLANDER ANY BREEDER.

ALL INFORMATION ON THIS SITE HAS BEEN GATHERED FROM THE INTERNET, STATE AGENCIES WHERE THE BREEDERS LIVE, AND THEIR VETS OFFICE'S.

We feel that tiny little Shorkie Dogs - Shorkie puppies that are so priceless and potential puppy parents need to be warned about shorkie breeders that have a bad name in the breeding world and say they have NOTHING TO LOSE.. Of course they have nothing to lose they will just start breeding something else.

Here at www.shorkiebreeders.net  we strive to make adopting Shorkie puppies online a SAFE and PLEASANT experience.  We don't have shorkies for sale.. This website is an informational website. The information on this site is information we found on the net. When looking for a shorkie breeder don't look at only at their advertisements, look at their breeding practices, the care they give their adult dogs, and puppies, look at them as a person, look at the conduct they do and last but not least their Shorkie references. Ask your self, can I consider this person a friend and trust them? Will this person be there for me if I have any issues with my baby? Do I feel comfortable with this perons? If you say NO to any of the above then step away no matter how cute the shorkie is.

YOU MUST  due your research on any breeder you choose to deal with!!!

Any breeder can offer an Official 5 year Health Guarantee, if they are not breeding Shorkies in 5 years your health guarantee is not worth the paper it is written, unless you spend thousands of dollars to take the breeder to court. Then you might get a judgment to get your money back or another shorkie puppy from them. Most puppy parents will not go thru that and this is what some breeders count on. Some breeders say we will match any Shorkie Breeders health guarantee WORD for WORD ! Why would a breeder need need to match a health guarantee of another breeder if they offer a good one?

 Some breeders say they are here for puppy support for the entire life of your Shorkie puppy, and they stand behind every puppy with a 5 year health guarantee. With their contract is not too strict. But when they have a health issues they then blame the food your puppy was on and find a way to get out of it. After all their contract is just for genetic issues.

Some breeders say they are very devoted to all the pups and dedicated to helping owners understand how to care for this special breed. But they never call you back or answer the phone once your puppy arrives home. Caller Id is wonderful for them.

Some breeders say all of their adults / puppies for sale have been given the utmost care and attention. But they are not fed a top quality food, genetically tested, or kept up to date with their shots or their shorkie puppies only go to the vet right before they go home. Some breeders say my shorkie puppies and adults are  raised in our home, but yet it is really a kennel/ a house just for their dogs.

Some breeders steal photos and content from other breeders websites to use and change a little then call their own. Like the photo below. Just to look like a reputable breeders.

 

WHEN DEALING WITH A BREEDER THE BEST WAY TO KNOW IF THEY ARE AN ETHICAL, BREEDER AND THE TYPE OF BABIES THEY PRODUCE IS EMAIL OR CALL THEIR PAST PUPPY PARENTS. THAT WAY YOU WILL SEE HOW THEIR BABIES ARRIVE TO THEIR NEW HOME. ASK TO TALK TO THEIR VET.. ASK THEIR  VET ABOUT THEM AND THEIR BREEDING PRACTICE'S OR EVEN WHAT THEY DO WITH THE MOM'S AND DAD'S THEY RETIRE THEM. ASK THEIR VET ABOUT THE TESTING THEY DO ON THE ADULTS THEY BREED. 

  THEIR VET SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THEM AND THEIR DOGS. IF THEY REFUSE TO GIVE YOU THEIR VET INFO I WOULD NOT BUY A SHORKIE FROM THEM...

Make sure you check out the breeder you are dealing with very carefully. I would stay away from ANY breeder that have to use other breeders graphics and health guarantees. Make sure your breeder is being their own person as a breeder and not trying to imitate some one else. Talk to your breeders vet, make sure it is their vet and not a family member or friend.

There are many breeders that will tell you one thing and do another. You need to make sure your breeder is being honest with you. One way to do this is to call their vet ask them if they are a in home breeder or if they have a kennel. Ask the vet if they see their adult dogs on a regular basis, like for their yearly shots.  If the vet tells you that they can not release that information with out their permission then I would tell the breeder that you want to talk to their vet about their breeding practices and how they raise their babies.

If the breeder says they use more then one vet tell them you want to talk to all of them. Most breeders will use one maybe two vets unless the vet specializes in something like ear cropping, fixing hernia's .. I personally don't see why a breeder would use more then one.

The breeder vet should have built a relationship with the breeder over time, and should know how their babies are raised.

If your breeder refuse's to give you their vet information RUN...
