My warning to others: This shop is not reputable. The owners are very smooth. Do not believe what you may be told.
Turned out that the dog was a mixed breed terrier of indeterminate parentage.
Now, 3 months later, the dog is 15 pounds and still growing. He is part terrier, but definitely not a yorkshire. Maybe part silky terrier, but not a yorkshire at all.
The dog is of indeterminate age; appears by teeth and demeanor to be older than stated age.
The microchip certificate that I was provided indicates a number that is nonsensical and not valid. When scanned, in fact, the dog has no microchip at all.
The supposed breeder/nursery that is referenced in the pedigree papers that I was provided, also does not exist.
Within a couple of weeks of purchase, the dog went lame, and the vet indicated that he has a severe patellar luxation, and needs an operation.
The dog has a pathologic fear of going into our garage, or other dark spaces, making me wonder about the location of his early upbringing.
When I first brought the dog home, and reviewed the register receipt (not itemized), I realized that I was charged $200 more than the listed sales price posted for the dog. When I called the owner the next day, she denied that the dog had ever been on sale.
Avoid this store. You will pay lots of money for a puppy that will not be the breed reported, will not likely be healthy, and the paperwork (microchip, pedigree etc) that will be provided to you will be worthless
