    How old is she? And are you trying to sell her or give her away? If selling, how much do you want for her?

    Yorkies are infamous for not being good with small children - I would never rehome this kind of a dog in a household of that description!!! It leaves the dog and the children open to injury. Like Chihuahuas, Yorkies tend to be one-person dogs and can get snappy with others, even other members of "their person's" family. People need to be responsible pet owners and choose an animal with a temperment that suits their household and lifestyle. I work for a rescue organization and hate to see dogs get jerked around from house to house because people are purchasing based on looks and then moving them on to another home when things don't work. It is unhealthy and unfair. Please contact one of your local rescue organizations - they will be willing to take the time to screen potential owners to ensure they will be suitable for this type of dog.

    @snaps---not ALL yorkies are bad with children..there have been a total of 12 yorkies in my family and we are a family with a lot of children. No problems..ever. It all depends on how you the owner raise the dog. Same with "bully breeds"

    If you lived in Minnesota I would totally take her in a heartbeat!

    Indeed, not ALL are - I don't mean to suggest there aren't exceptions. But many are nippy and I think that, especially having never even MET this dog before, it would be dangerous for someone with young children to take a Yorkie. I would honestly (I am not exaggerating or being sarcastic) be more comfortable rehoming a pit bull with young children. Small dogs are often the worst with children. I think it's because the same amount of prodding/poking/pulling on a small dog causes more pain than it does for a larger one (like a retriever or lab).

    I would, but I already have a Maltese/Yorkie and a hound. Smiley sad She's cute though.

    @Snaps- I don't think that smaller dogs are more irritable than any other dog, it depends on how it is raised and who it is around. If you have a small child who pulls the dog's hair or hits it then, yes, you're going to have a dog that doesn't like children. But if you teach your child what is and isn't acceptable to do then the dog will be just fine. The only time either of my dogs snap at anyone is if they think I'm in danger or someone hurts them. Like Nicci said- It depends on how the dogs are raised. When I was little my parents had a Rottweiler and she was the sweetest dog ever. So it's all in the people around the animal.

    I would be very worried about a small child harming the Yorkie. They are very tiny little dogs with itty bitty bones, a small child could potentially very seriously harm them by "playing" with them. I wouldn't bring a Yorkie into a home that has kids who aren't old enough to understand that this pet is potentially very fragile. Also, as mentioned, there is the risk that a young child bothers the dog too much while "playing" with it and gets bitten. A lot of kids under 6-8 just don't know how to play with toy breeds of dogs appropriately, a larger, more sturdy breed would be best for someone with small children.

    Wait, did you get this dog JUST as a wedding accessory??????? I'm sorry, but I think it is VERY irresponsible to not have thought this through and done proper introductions to your dogs prior to buying her. You will have caused this poor dog a great deal of stress and opened her to the possibility of ending up homeless or worse. This pup is a living being and deserves better than to have been passed around like this.

    @CanadianBride- I agree with you, that was my thought as well when I read the post. I was hoping someone else had brought it up so we could have a full explanation.

    Whether or not this is the reason you purchased this dog, I really hope you will be responsible in rehoming her. As a pet owner who has rehomed animals before I know that it is hard and frusterating to find a suitable home for an animal that doesn't fit into your home, but please screen whomever you chose very carefully. Have them(& children/animals if they have any) come meet her at your house or a public location she is comfortable with prior to the rehoming so everyone can get a feel for everyone else and to see if all parties will get along.

    @Cannadianbride: but no i didnt just get her for that i rescued her off the streets she had nats flees ticks and poop stuck on her butt and i just found out shes pregnant

    And

    @snaps: no shes not agressive to children she was agressive to my mother when she hit one of my sisters kid shes just protective she growled at my mother and protected the kid and the only reason i cant keep her is bc one of my dogs is 6weeks old and hes extremly playfull and shes more mature and doesnt want to run around prob bc shes preggo. My other dog is pretty good with her they actually get along great just not when theres wet dog food around and thats bc of my dog

    I think it would still be best for a rescue organization to handle this dog's rehoming. I commend you for taking in a homeless pup, but with her pregnancy, she will need care (possibly in a foster home) and a rescue organization will not only take care of the adoption of her pups as well, but they will make sure they are ALL sterilized to prevent even more unwanted dogs in the future. Another question I have is - how do you have a 6 week old puppy?? That animal should not be away from its mother yet!
