My husband and I fell in love with the Yorkie race after our first purchase of a Traditional Yorkie in 2000, soon after the second one joined our family. In 2011, we discovered if we ever had to be without a Yorkie again, our house would be an empty one as my two children were getting older and
would soon be leaving the nest. We just couldn’t imagine our life without a Yorkie again. In 2012 I decided to register as a breeder and that is how Romano’s Yorkies was born.

I am an ethical breeder who carefully studies the lines of all my Yorkies before any mating take place to improve the race. In this way I deliver healthy puppies to the public. My Puppies are dewormed every two weeks and only leave after their first vaccination. My Pregnant Females get a good balanced diet daily that includes bone broth to build their cartilage and make their bones strong.

When the puppies are 5 weeks old, they are slowly introduced to bone broth as they were exposed to small amounts trough their mom’s milk. The bigger and stronger pups are re homed as early as 8 weeks whereas the small petite pups need to stay a little bit longer and can only start being re homed from about twelve weeks or more. All puppies are healthy and strong at the time of re homing. No sick puppy will ever leave Romano’s.

New homes are carefully screened to ensure all puppies bred by Romano’s Yorkies are safe at all times and receive love in abundance. There is a strict contract in place with each puppy sold that determines they are well looked after, if those standards aren’t met or an owner can no longer provide for the dog, it comes back to Romano’s.
