SELECT YOUR PUPPY!
Be aware! When you select your puppy
When you select your Puppy, you will have spent quite some time considering exactly what type of puppy you should bay. What size would best fit in with your household; how much exercise space and time the dog will receive; how much he will cost to feed, house and keep in good health and condition etc.; and having decided all this, what type of temperament your dog will need to have to fit in happily with in your family, and what about the children?Dog or Bitch? The choice between dog and bitch is also of preference. "Yes" you made the best suitable decision;
The Australian Silky Terrier or A Yorkshire Terrier is A must.
The Silky & Yorkie is more Suitable to the Australian climate and is much easier to handle generally. The Australian Silky & Yorkie Terrier makes a good smart little watch dog, is easily house-trained and being a small and affectionate, is eminently suitable for small -house or flat - dwellers.
Life expectancy is approx.; 14 years for Silky Terriers & 16 years for Yorkshire Terriers.
So many people have bought an appealing "little" puppy which was sold to them as a Silky Terrier OR Yorkshire Terrier, ( or a DESIGNER DOG ),
Labradoodle or a Cavoodudle and so on. Only to find out later that the father was a Blue- Heeler.
I am firmly against crossbreeds. The downside is you can not blame the dog for the outcome, later in live.
" When you buy a purebred, you know exactly what you are going to get. 98 % " Because of DNA testing.
( We can never hope to purge the breed of all defects!, but through selective breeding we can work to stack the "genetic deck" more in our favor over the years.)
Even an expert cannot look at a 6-8 week- old cross breed and guess his ultimate weight, size coat or very important-character or what about any medical issues?. This is not to say that you should not buy a cross breed dog from an animal shelter this is your choosing after all. Rather that you should keep all these points in you mind when considering to buy a small Australian Silky OR Yorkshire Terrier, purchase one from a well known and registered Breeder which is a member of the Canine Control Council (Q)dogs

Helps & Hints & Tips. and all about Heartworms in Dogs.
Treat heartworm in Dogs ( Pet talk with Paul Shiel )
Heartworm is a disease predominantly found in dogs, however, it may also be present in cats and rarely in Humans. The disease is caused by a parasite called Dirofilaria - immitis which is a worm that attempts to live in the lungs and hearts of dogs.
It is a terminal disease and by that I mean that the animal infested will eventually die, unless specifically treated for the infection.
This disease is transmitted by mosquitoes , whom, then they bit their host they transfer the small larval stage of the heartworm which find their way into the bloodstream. After your dog has been bitten it takes about eight weeks for the larval stages to develop into adult worms which will then breed and produce more larvae, consequently the dog's condition simply worsens. Fortunately, heartworm can be prevented and even treated if your dog is already infected. Some of the common clinical signs are a cough, reduced exercise tolerance with progressive weight loss.
You should seek advice from a veterinarian, if your dog is not already on heartworm preventative medicine, and you suspect it may be infected. I t is very important to understand that the normal dog worming tablets taken approximately every three months for gastro-intestinal worms do not kill or affect heartworm at all. Remember, heartworm lives in the lungs and heart, not in the gut system. To check if your dog in infected, simply go to your vet to have a specific blood test done, which will detect if heartworm is presented. If they are, then treatment is available to kill the existing adult and larval heartworm. Once this is achieved the dog can go onto the preventative treatment. Again it is very important to check your dog first, before going onto the preventive treatment because if you don't you risk killing your dog.The only safe time to start a dog on a heartworm prevention tablets is when it is eight weeks old. Anytime after that is a risk and the dog should be tested first. There are currently three available ways of heartworm treatment. They are: Dimmitrol tablets given daily Heartgurd 30, one tablet given every month. Heartgurd 30+, which incorporates a gut worming program against roundworm and hookworm.
