    DescriptionI have an adorable little yorkie available for stud. He is about a year old.
    His parents had papers with full pedigree but apparently he wasn't able to get papers as he was the 'runt' of the litter. I'm not sure how true this is as I rescued him at about 12 weeks old.

    He is affectionate and a proper little character. If his offspring are anything like him you will be very lucky parents. I don't want money for stud fees but would like pick of the litter, nothing more. I'm in East Sussex but unfortunately do not have transport. He is ready to breed, the sooner the better. He looks proper scruffy in his pic (sorry) but it was the best I could get at the time.


    I don't know much about breeding, does the male need to be over 2 as well preferably? Does this advert sound odd too you?

    I don't know anything about dog breeding either but I think a year is too young and the 'sooner the better' comment is a little weird :confused: As well as the thing about his papers :confused:

    Sounds like they know nothing about breeding or stud dogs and just want a new puppy really, maybe a 'clone' of their own dog or something :rolleyes:

    He can be registered even if he is the runt of the litter Sounds well dodgy!

    As long as parents are registered then ALL pups can be registered runts or not!

    Disgusting - doesnt get much worse. Pup isnt registered because its the runt of the litter? Thats a lie, more like one or both parents were not registered themselves, or endorsed against breeding.
    She has 'rescued' the dog, so has not idea (clearly!) about where this dog has come from.
    Its not against any rules to breed a dog at a year old, but alot of breeders would ideally leave it a wee bit longer - shes seems in a rush to breed though - 'sooner, rather than later'!! WHY?


    This is a BRILLIANT example of stud adverts to avoid ... Mind you most decent breeders dont need to approach others, or advertise studs as anyone interested will contact them their selves.

    does not matter if pup is pick of litter or runt of litter the breeder will still get paperwork from kc if they reg pups...sounds more like the breeder of the pup now being pimped out for stud did not want to pay to reg her pups..

    I thought it didn't sound right, it has been updated loads of times so they obviously haven't had any takers yet!

    Perhaps sooner rather than later because they think mating him will 'calm him down too?'
