~~~ IMPORTANT ~~~
Puppies are susceptible to Bacteria, Virus and Stress.
Puppies should be taken from the Breeder straight to your home and remain
Isolated to your home and immediate family until after it's 3rd round of shots.
A puppies immunity does not exist until it has received its full 3 round of shots.
Puppies are easily stressed and can become ill.
We recommend Honey Nut Cheerios as treats especially with Yorkies.
We also recommend Cottage Cheese and/or Plain Yogurt as a side dish with meals.
Once a puppy leaves our care we can no longer access its issues should it develop any.
We strongly recommend that you have a Vet which you have a strong relationship with
to be able to call or get immediate attention for any puppy not adjusting well.
The Shot record we give you should be copied and a copy given to your Vet.
Please do NOT allow your Vet to give needless Vaccinations as this could cause Immune Issues.
Occasionally puppies become depressed from leaving Mom, Siblings and an
environment they have known their whole lives and refuse to eat and/or drink.
This is a dire situation and new owner must be prepared to take the responsibility
and time to work with puppy or get it to a Vet.
Small puppies can become lethargic and/or hypoglycemic when not eating especially
the smaller ones and Yorkie puppies are known for stress related hypoglycemia
from not adequately eating to keep their blood sugar up.
Purchasing 2 puppies to raise together helps reduce the stress.
We do give discounts for multiple puppy purchases.
Puppies MUST HAVE REASONABLE REST periods.
Small children should always be supervised when around a puppy and taught responsible
ownership and handling skills.
~~~ FOOD ~~~
Our puppies are fed DRY free-choice Purina "EXCLUSIVE" Formula.
We do send home a sample pack for our puppy buyers to use to switch to whatever food they plan to use.
In addition to the free-choice food they will be eating Pedigree Canned Chopped Beef
3-4 times a day with a side dish of Cottage Cheese and/or Yogurt.
I've included a pic of both so you'll know exactly what we feed.

~~~ Harlequin Pinscher - Miniature Pinscher ~~~
Run-N-Ridge is the proud FOUNDING Breeder of THE Harlequin Pinscher.
There are breeders who have copied the PATTERN but these are NOT Harlequin Pinschers.
A TRUE well-bred, proudly produced Harlequin Pinscher will be registered with the HPA.
Harlequin Pinscher Association.
Beware of those registering with other Registries claiming they have TRUE Harlequin Pinschers.
Talk is cheap and Pedigrees can/have been Forged or copied from other Breeders and used with
other Registries to Document Fake Harlies.
ALL TRUE PUREBRED Harlequin Pinschers have been required to be registered with HPA
since the Founding of the Breed. Those being claimed to be Purebred Harlies and registered
with other Registries is either a lie or being bred by an immoral/unetical breeder who
has chosen to break a legally binding contract.
Being Banned from a Registry does not give an unethical breeder the right to break a contract.
All HPA breeding dogs must be Genetically Tested for MPS VI, PLL, Cystinuria and required to
be bred responsibly based on those results.
Run-N-Ridge is also testing for DM and breeding responsibly to avoid affected DM pups.
ALL HPA breeding dogs must be DNA tested for parentage verification.
HPA is currently highly recommending DM testing and breeding responsibiy based on results.
HPA is the ONLY REGISTRY which is Founder approved for Harlequin Pinscher Registration
and is the ONLY registry which has the complete data-base for the Harlequin Pinscher.
Our dedication to the breed shows in the quality of the dogs we have "CHOSEN" to breed.
R-N-Rs motto is "If your gonna breed then breed to better the breed and not for financial gain".
~~~ Rat Terrier ~~~
Run-N-Ridge is among the first 3 breeders of Merle Rat Terriers.
We were the among the first of breeders who saw the Rat Terrier as an outstanding breed
of dog and worth more than a Free Farm Dog.
Run-N-Ridge continued to breed Merle and Brindle Rat Terriers when UKCI caved in to higher-than-thou
newbie breeders who wanted the Merle and Brindle patterns eliminated. UKCI notified me that my
papers on my Merles were pulled and no longer eligible with UKCI for registration.
YES - we had UKCI issued papers on them which were Eligible Papers one day and not worth
the paper they were printed on the next. UKCI at that moment became irrelevant, unethical, unmoral
and useless for Rat Terrier registration IMHO.
UKCI made a strict standard for the Brindles at that time which is RIDICULOUS as the Brindle Gene
nor the dog is able to read a piece of paper to know their only allowed to mark on the dogs head.
We have proudly continued to Produce ACR registered, Fully Pedigree Documented, Outstanding Merle and Brindle Rat Terriers as well as those of all Colors and Patterns.
Our Rat Terriers are Genetically tested for PLL and PRA and being bred responsibly.
We raise RAT TERRIERS and not the Teddy Roosevelt Terrier (*aka Type B)
~~~ Biewer Yorkie ~ Yorkshire Terrier ~ Mosaic Yorkie ~~~
Our Yorkie Bloodline goes by the Bloodline name of ~Class Act.~
Class Act is the ORIGINAL Importer of Biewer Yorkies.
We established the Biewer Yorkie Association in which to register the Biewer Yorkie here in the U.S.
As with all of my dogs I LOVE Colors and Patterns.
We raise Traditional, Brown (*chocolate), Creme, Piebald, Belted and Tri Biewer/Yorkies.
Our Biewers and Traditional Yorkies are registered with the BYA.
We have just started a new venture with the Mosaic Yorkie.
The Mosaic Yorkie is the new European developed MERLE Yorkie.
These new on-the-scene Yorkies may or may not be full-blood Yorkie.
The Europeans have falsely stated these are Yorkie mutations to get the pattern but our
genetic testing has shown otherwise.
From our testing we have results from being a Biewer, to Yorkie to cross-bred.
We firmly believe and common sense as well as Genetic Knowledge dictates that at some
point a MERLE dog of another breed was used to produce
the Merle pattern in a Yorkie bloodline.
Amazingly - the Foreign Registries were the ones that started allowing Merle Patterned
Yorkies to be registered but in 2021 they have now banned Merle Patterned Yorkies.
The only problem I see is the lying which has taken place in proclaiming the Merle gene was caused by a mutation.
There is nothing wrong with developing a new pattern into a breed of dog.
So that being said - we are now raising the Merle Patterned Yorkshire Terrier.
Since BYA refused to recognize the Merle pattern and alienate those against the Merle pattern inclusion they
register the Merle Bloodlines under the MYA (*Merle Yorkie Association) data-base.
ANY Bloodline with the Merle genetics in it will be registered with MYA whether it is a traditional looking
Yorkie, Biewer appearance or colored.
We absolutely LOVE our Merle patterned Yorkies.
With this new classification of MOSAIC Yorkie they are now considered a purebred unto themselves.
Run-N-Ridge Need to Know PRIOR to contacting and/or Purchasing:
If your looking for a run of the mill dog then this is NOT the right place for you.
We breed & produce long time generational documented/registered HPA Pups.
We register our Harlies with HPA - The ONLY registry with the full database of
foundation and purebred Harlequin Pinschers.
We do not do excessive breeding of our dogs like so many others do.
Be diligent and do your research - don't support those over-breeding their Dams.
If your intentions are to breed a dog till it's no longer Profitable then please look elsewhere.
We do not breed based on the fact we have put money and time into an animal.
We do not breed CUTE - CUTE is a term for beloved Pets - not breeding dogs.
I do not breed bad quality, short-legged, barrel body type, round headed dogs - these type
dogs are NOT breed quality and should NOT be bred.
Excellent Quality and Health are the criteria of our breeding program.
We do not live off the money our dogs generate. Both my husband and myself
have full-time jobs which pays our bills. My dogs are a life-long Achievement
of conscientious production of Quality & Healthy Pups for my own Pleasure and Enjoyment
which I happily get to share with my new puppy owners.
We will not knowingly sell to a large scale breeder or a breeder who believes
every dog is breeding quality and breeds simply because they own one.
ALL pups purchased from us are required by legal contract to be registered with the breed
clubs we have chosen and are NOT to be dual registered with any other clubs/registeries/associations.
Offspring from ALL dogs of our bloodline are required, by legal contract, to be registered with our chosen Registries.
That said if you see a Harlie stated to be from my bloodline (*Run-N-Ridge bloodline is the ONLY Founding and
Purebred Bloodline) with any other registry it's either a lie or
being bred by an unethical immoral breeder who has chosen to illegally break a binding agreement.
We breed responsibly based on Genetic Health and the Quality of an animal.
We specialize in selling to Puppy Buyers who have the same morals and ethics as we do on wanting a
REGISTERED and GENETIC TESTED Bloodline for which an animal has a much better chance of
having a LONG LIFE with fewer health issues.
Our dogs have gone through 184+ genetic test in our attempt to provide our puppy buyers with the
healthiest pup possible for many years to come.
We have made this page in the attempt to answer potential puppy buyers questions.
Please read through this page thoroughly.
I realize it is long and detailed but it is worth your time to read it in it's entirety.
Every puppy buyer is given the option to read this and is bound by it's content
whether they choose to read it or not.
