Hello and welcome to the website! I am Carol L. Shaver of Desert Darlings Yorkshire Terriers. My love for the Yorkshire Terrier breed started over 30 years ago when I purchased my first Yorkshire Terrier Bitch, Tootsie. Tootsie was not exactly the "postage stamp" of the perfect Yorkshire Terrier, but she spawned my interest and my family loved her despite her less then admirable qualities. I soon became a friend of Beulah Roberts of Bryn Mawr Yorkshire Terriers. I admired her ability to breed small dogs that were uniformly correct that carried the strong gene of what is known to many breeders as the "baby doll face". I learned a great deal from Beulah and her gratitude for taking on someone with so many questions and so much to learn.From those humble beginnings I trained my eye and started my endeavor and ultimate goal of breeding a small and constitutionally strong dog that carried genetic reliability in producing the baby doll faces to go along with the aforementioned desired traits. While no dog is perfect, I feel blessed that I have been able to reproduce animals that for some years now have been sought after throughout the country. It was a long time in the making, but well worth where I am today. gained many friends along the way and became very good friends with my partners Susie Neas and Marla Anderson who I am indebted to for allowing me to continue my breeding stock, sales and conception of this website. Thank you Susie!
