AKC Chocolate Yorkie Puppies

Yorkie puppies are bright little dogs that enjoy learning new tricks. They are friendly and caring little companions.

A Yorkie is a unique combination of a terrier and a toy dog. The Yorkie was brought to Yorkshire, England,

where the Scottish weavers miniaturized it into a true lapdog size. But Yorkies aren't just good lapdogs and cuddle bugs.

Some act like tiny terriers, with instincts to chase anything that moves and keeps strangers away by their sharp shrill bark.

Yorkshire Terriers are best known for their glossy hair-like coats that change color with age.

Chocolate Yorkshire Terriers have an entirely brown coat. Their coat color can vary from deep bronze to tan shades.

Yorkies come in three different colors, traditional, Parti and chocolate.

So if you are looking for the perfect chocolate Yorkie puppies for sale in Stockton, California, then look no further.

Here at Maranatha, we have got the ideal selection for you. But first, let's look into some of its pros and cons.

Are chocolate Yorkies purebred?

Chocolate Yorkies are generally purebred. They may be born with the right recessive genes present in both parents.

Like the Parti-white Yorkie, they are recognized by the American Kennel Club with the same conditions.

However, prospective buyers need to be careful when buying from a breeder.

They may confuse the buyer and may make them believe that they are purchasing a purebred chocolate Yorkie when in fact,

they are getting a mixed breed puppy. For example, the mating would have been between a Yorkie and a brown coated breed,

which may appear to be chocolate Yorkies. It is essential to perform your due diligence before purchasing a puppy such as a chocolate Yorkie.

Do chocolate Yorkie Puppies have health issues?

Chocolate Yorkies indeed carry recessive genes, but that doesn't mean that they will be exposed to health issues.

Most chocolate Yorkies go on to live happy and healthy lives. You should also be wary of chocolate Yorkie breeders who chose color over pedigree.

Breeders may want to make money rather than provide a healthy litter. If you see a chocolate Yorkie for sale,  

make sure to ask the breeder as many questions as you can. For example, you can ask about the birthplace of the puppy

or you can ask to see the parent's veterinary paperwork, etc.

Lastly, once you've picked the perfect puppy for yourself, you should educate yourself on the common health issues that chocolate Yorkies have.

Such as Pancreatitis, Liver shunt, Retinal dysplasia, Hypoglycemia, Collapsed trachea, Periodontal disease

Does the AKC recognize chocolate Yorkshire Terriers?

In short, yes the American Kennel Club recognizes chocolate Yorkies. You can register your puppy as a liver or liver and tan Yorkshire terrier.

If having this is important to you then you can look for a purebred Yorkie puppy with a black and tan coat.
