SEEKING FREE TEACUP YORKIE TERRIER IN WELLINGTON TX. MY 9 YR OLD GRANDDAUGHTER IS DESPERATELY WANTING A PUPPY. ON NOV 5 2004 HER 4 1/2 YR OLD BROTHER WAS HIT BY A TRUCK AND DIED RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER. 3 MONTHS LATER HER PUPPY DIED IN THE SAME SPOT HER BROTHER DIED. WITH ALL FINANCIAL PROBLEMS I CANNOT AFFORD TO BUY HER A PUUPY RIGHT NOW. PLEASE HELP ME TO MAKE HER DREAM COME TRUE. WE PROMISE TO LOVE YOUR PUPPY.
I am sorry to hear of your misforune. However, you may have further misfortune if you are looking for a teacup yorkie. It is very hard to find a reputable breeder that does what is needed to breed such a small puppy. There are many reasons that they are classified as 'teacups' and many not good. You would be better and safer looking for a good yorkie breeder that breeds healthy yorkies instead of looking for a teacup-which is a marketing ploy to overcharge for undersize puppies-or at least that is what it is in general.
Also if you are looking for a puppy, you can view the Dogs for Sale section of this site. ON this forum we can't post for sale or wanted ads in the forum, just information to help. Please also consider that if you can't afford a puppy now, that it may not be a good time for one. Most breeders will require you to take it to the vet within 72 hours and follow vet recommended protocol for vaccinations, visits and dewormings. You may be wise to look for a puppy for rescue or at a local shelter for one to adopt. But do consider the costs and committments of raising a puppy and also the frustrations attached to a new puppy-chewing, housetraining, obedience. With all that you have going on, it may not be a good time to make that committment.

That is a very sad story. I am sorry for your loss. I do not think however you are going to find a teacup yorkie for next to nothing. You should look online for a yorkie rescue group in your area, maybe you can adopt. If not check your local shelter, you may find a yorkie mix, there are also many other great dogs there looking for homes. Good luck!!
So sorry to hear about the deaths in your family. Teacup is not an actual size of dog. It is a cute name given to very small bred dogs. Just a Yorkie, not to mention Yorkies are a pretty expensive breed, and finding someone to give you one for free is likely not going to happen. Please consider waiting for a pup until your financial situation improves to be able to properly provide for your puppy. There are alot of routine expenses as well as unforseen emergency expenses involved. If you are unable to pey for the vet care, you could be inflicting yet another loss on your family. My deeepest sympathies.
If this is a scam then these people are fricking sick. I read where puppy millers would drag little kids around with them and pickup free dogs from people and convince them that the puppy was for the kid. But to say that your child was hit by a truck is just wrong. If this is not a scam and I hope that it isnt then I am sorry .maybe a gold fish would be better and cheaper to raise.
Maybe I'm just a cynic but this sounds alot like a troll or a scam. Even if it were true, if you can't afford to BUY a puppy/dog, how do you expect to pay for all the expenses that occur afterwards? The initial cost of buying a dog is nothing compared to the vet bills afterwards. Also, a puppy is alot of work and very expensive. If you want a puppy for your granddaughter, you also need to think about who is actually going to take it. Young children, no matter what they say, will eventually get bored and will not be able to provide the responsibility that puppies need to grow into healthy, obedient adult dogs.
And don't even get me started on teacup dogs. Go to a nearby shelter and adopt a dog. If you get rejected from the shelter for any reason, then you should take that as a hint that your current conditions aren't good enough to own a dog. All of this might be harsh, but please, for your sake and for the dog's sake, be realistic.
Since I am a well known breeder with a top ranked site, I get all kinds of requests!! And I have found that this particular type of scam is done by "brokers' who have a 'client" that will pay good money for the pup they are asking for free. And there is no true family drama--it is all part of the scam.
i agree smells a little trollish or scammy to me considering the poster hasnt been back.
but giving the benefit of the doubt if this is for real.... i am terribly sorry for your losses!! but i too would reconsider the puppy idea if you are not able to afford one. having dogs is no different than having children, you must take care of them, vet appts, shots and what not. not to mention the non routine things, for example we just spent almost $500 because hunter got lymes disease and was very very sick. it would be totally unfair to that poor animal if something happened and you were unable to give it the care it needed, so PLEASE be a kind and responsible adult and give this decision alot of thought!
Assuming this were true--I would still NOT consider this a good home--what with BOTH a child and puppy dieing in the same place. I do know it is a scam, some have tracked down emails of some of these scammers and found places where they had dogs for sale--the very dogs they got free. You can spot them because they do not want a shelter pup--the pup must be "teacup" "tiny" perfect" show-quality" "full papered" and on and on. One person claimed they wanted a show female for their 6 year old who was the "next great Handler" and they wanted it super cheap since the 6 year was paying for it--and , oh yes, the child liked to see lots of champions in the pedigree--what a load that was!!
I would have to say this sounds like a sob story... trying to scam to get a free puppy. Don't fall for this stuff.. if she can't afford to purchase the puppy, she probably couldn't afford the maintenance it takes. Thank you.
