Brandon & Amanda Whiting with their Biewer Terrier Yorkie Exquisite’s Nightingale CoquetteWhen my husband and I made the decision to add a third “fur-baby” to our family, we knew how important it was to find a breeder who truly understood that we were not just looking for a healthy puppy, but also for a family member. As the currents parents of two amazing, healthy, and happy Yorkshire terriers, Lolita and Valentino, we were well aware of the rigors and responsibilities involved in raising and loving toy breed dogs and knew that adding one more to the pack was not a decision to be entered into lightly. It was important that the breeder we chose to work with shared our philosophy and that their litters were considered “their family” from birth, with the parents being on-site and the puppies receiving adequate socialization.I have been a member of several Yorkshire terrier and animal-rights clubs for over 7 years and have found that the small-dog loving community is a tight-knit, informative and devoted bunch. Therefore, when I knew that I was interested in finding a Biewer terrier a’la pom pon female, the groups were the first place I looked to get some honest and reliable information about interactions other members had with breeders. After contacting a few members, I was told to contact Sharon at www.exquisitebiewers.com. Other members recommended her as a passionate, informed and quality breeder. In speaking with her, I found that the club members were right –on with their evaluation.As we talked, I got a wonderful sense that she truly loves what she does and maintains a high level of measure for the families that she chooses to raise her puppies. She was very thorough and explored every avenue with me as to ensure that Coquette would be given a wonderful, fulfilling, and loving home with us and our other two pups. After this initial conversation, I knew I found the right breeder.Another important quality was that she made herself available for any questions or concerns we may have had until we were able to go and pick up our little girl at her sprawling, 80-acre home in Virginia. She provided some pictures of our growing girl via email correspondence and we spoke at length about her and her littermates on several occasions. This was especially helpful and reassuring for us as we grew more and more excited for Coquette to join our family.
All in all, we could not have been happier with the level of care and professionalism we received from day one in working with Sharon. Anyone can breed a puppy and sell it off to an unsuspecting family. Unfortunately, there are many out there that do which will only end up in heartbreak for the puppy and the family. But, with Sharon we knew that we were looking forward to receiving a healthy, well-socialized puppy, just as she knew she was allowing that puppy to join a family who would always have its best interests at heart and truly consider it ”part of the family”.
As we approach Coquette’s first birthday, we find ourselves pleasantly surprised each and every day with this sweet, silly little girl and her entertaining antics. Playful, healthy, and unapologetically loveable, she has been the perfect addition to our family. A wonderful girl and a funny little baby sister to Valentino and Lolita, she has truly found a place in our home and our hearts…thank you Sharon!
