DEAR LINDA,
AS YOU KNOW, I ADOPTED A  YORKIE PUPPY FROM YOU NINE WEEKS AGO. LITTLE DID I KNOW HOW MUCH THIS ONE POUND BALL OF FUR WOULD CHANGE MY LIFE. THIS IS MY FIRST LITTLE GIRL SO I WASN'T EXACTLY SURE WHAT TO EXPECT. BUT SHE IS A PERFECT ANGEL, WITH THE BEST PERSONALITY. SHE WAS WELL SOCIALIZED WHEN I GOT HER, AND SHE HAS QUICKLY AND EASILY BECOME MORE SO AS SHE LOVES BOTH PEOPLE AND OTHER DOGS. I TAKE HER WITH ME EVERYWHERE AND PEOPLE ARE DRAWN TO HER AND CAN'T BELIEVE HOW SWEET SHE IS. I LOVE HER DEARLY AND CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR ALL YOU DID TO MAKE HER SO SPECIAL.

LINDA,
JUST A QUICK NOTE TO LET YOU KNOW THAT ALL IS GOING VERY WELL WITH OUR LITTLE DARLING. HE'S BEEN CHECKED OUT BY MY VET AND WAS TOLD HE WAS A VERY HEALTHY PUP. HE WEIGHED IN AT A WHOPPING 1.2 LBS. HE SEEMS TO BE EATING WELL...ALTHO HE HAS A HARD TIME TAKING TIME OUT TO EAT...ALWAYS WANTS TO BE IN THE SAME ROOM WE ARE IN. HIS HOUSEBREAKING IS GOING WELL ON THE WHOLE...TELL YOUR HUBBY THANKS FOR THE ADVICE IN THAT DEPARTMENT. NO REAL QUESTIONS...THINK I ASKED ENUFF PRIOR TO GETTING HIM. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR HELP IN MAKING THE ADJUSTMENT TO OUR LITTLE MAN. WE LOVE HIM DEARLY!
TAHNKS AGAIN,

HI LINDA,
MY FAMILY AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN. OUR YORKIE PUP 
($ CASH $) SEEMED TO HAVE ADJUSTED REALLY WELL WITH MY FAMILY. HE IS GETTING SPOILED A LOT FROM MY FAMILY. CASH LIKES TO BE HELD A LOT AND HE USUALLY FALLS ASLEEP IN OUR ARMS. WE HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH OUR LITTLE PUP AND IT IS THE BEST DECISION WE'VE MADE IN DECIDING ON WHAT TYPE OF DOG WE WANTED. HE IS VERY PRECIOUS TO US AND WE FEEL THAT HE WILL BRING US MANY HAPPY TIMES TO COME. WE APPRECIATE THE EXTRA LOVE AND CARE YOU GAVE CASH FOR HIS JOURNEY IN THE KENNEL CAB. THERE SHOULD BE MORE BREEDERS LIKE YOU AND I WILL DEFINITELY REFER YOU TO ANY ONE INTERESTED IN PURCHASING A YORKIE OR ANY OF THE OTHER BREEDS OF DOGS YOU HAVE.
SINCERELY,

HI LINDA- I'M SORRY IT'S TAKEN ME SO LONG...I USUALLY SEND AN UPDATE AFTER 2 DAYS. PERKY BUG STILL DOES NOT HAVE A NAME...WE CANNOT AGREE ON ONE! HE IS THE MOST PRECIOUS PUPPY. WE COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. HE ADJUSTED TO US WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS AND HE IS A WONDERFUL MIX OF A LAP DOG AND PLAYFUL PUPPY. HE WENT TO WORK WITH ME TODAY AND THE ONLY TIME HIS FEET TOUCHED THE GROUND WAS WHEN HE HAD TO GO OUTSIDE TO POTTY:) HE TRULY IS A WONDERFUL LITTLE GUY. I CAN SEE HOW EASY IT IS TO SPOIL THEM...IT'S JUST LIKE HAVING ANOTHER BABY...I'LL SEND PICTURES IN A WEEK OR SO.

Dear Linda,
Thank you very much for all the help you have given us since buying Tanner, our little Yorkie from you. Even before purchasing him from you, we had contacted several other breeders about Yorkies, but none of them gave us the time and info that you did. We had never had a house dog or owned a small dog of any kind before, so we had lots of questions and you gave us all the answers and even told us questions we should be asking whether we bought one from you or not, it was alot of help!
The line of communication has been second to none. You had us call when we picked him up at the airport to make sure he was ok, and any question or concern we have now we know we can always call you, and have several times!!! If Charlie can ever talk me into another one I know we would go right to you, and if anyone ever asks us where to find one at, we will not hesitiate to give them your number and web site. You have been great and we will be sending you pictures from time to time of Tanner to let you know how he is doing. Thanks again and I'm sure we will be talking to you in the future.
God Bless You and your Family,  Charlie, Tracey, Kristyn, Taylor, Kloie and TANNER

Linda,
First I would like to once again thank you for your professionalism and care. Bentley arrived on time and just as we discussed except for one thing. He is more beautiful than I expected. I can't find the words to describe what this puppy has brought to my life. Not only was he well socialized, he is also healthy, energetic and virtually unaffected by the commotion of the airport. Bentley is extremely intelligent, feisty, curious and eager to learn. This dog is not afraid of anything! Things are going excellent. As you know, we have spoken a few times since his arrival. Each time we have spoken, you have always been willing to give advice and answer questions that I may have had. Much appreciated. Bentley is a heart breaker. When he arrived, I had no idea that a one pound puppy could bring this type of joy and entertainment! Thank you once again for your honesty and obvious love for the breed. It shows greatly. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Bye for now.

Linda,
I just want you to know we couldn't be happier with you and our new puppy. As we told you we were a little apprehensive about purchasing a puppy over the internet. Your professionalism and especially your concern for both us and Dandy made this aadoption appear so easy. You certainly went beyond keeping up with your end of the adoption.
We are soooooo happy with the new member of our family! My son has taken to calling him Buddy so there's a good chance that Dandy will become Buddy (hope you don't mind).
We took him with us to Petco today and have already passed your email address on to a very interested buyer.
Alexis and I wish you the best in the future and we will be sending a photo later this week.

UPDATE FROM PREVIOUS REFERENCE
Hello Linda! Here are some pictures of Buddie (Dandy). We arre so happy we have our adorable little Buddie. He travels everywhere with us drawing attention EVERY time we leave the house. Buddie is great to have around and we have so fallen in love with him! My mom and I are so pleased and grateful to have had everything work out successful and that we found such a caring breeder. Thanks again for Buddie (Dandy)!

Dear Linda,
I am so blessed by our new little guy. I re-named him "Mac the Knife", Mackey for short, after my dad's nickname all through his career in the Air Force. Mackey has and continues to bring so much joy to my parents. I told you from the very start I was not a dog person....however that has all changed. Mackey is my little guy. He is part of our family. I don't think I could love him anymore if I tried. I took him to our vet for his puppy shots and she told me he was the finest specimen of a Yorkshire Terrier she had ever seen. I want to thank you for the joy you brought to our family. Mackey is just what we needed during this time of ill health with my parents. He is a burst of energy and we love him so very much. You were so great to do business with and I have told everyone who asks about your wonderful family and your beautiful dogs. I just wanted to say thank you for giviing us our beautiful Mackey ( formerly "blooming buddy") He is our pride and joy. I am sure you and I will be doing business again soon. You have made my parents very happy. And created a "Dog Lover" out of a "Cat Person", in me.:) I love my little guy and will give him the best family home I know how to give.
Again...thank fou for this blessing.
With Warm thoughts,

Hey Linda,
I want to thank you and your husband again. Zander is AMAZING!! I could not ask for a better dog. He was great on the ride home and as soon as we walked in my door he was running around and exploring his new home. He has already made 2 friends (the neighbors dogs)!!! We have a huge mirror in our living room and when he walks by it he thinks its another dog and he barks at it. haha. I also think he has A.D.D. (attention disorder) ha. We will call and he will start running to us and then gets distrated! He is so adorable. I love him sooooooooooooo much.:) Thank you Linda !!!!!!!! I will definitely have my friends call you when they are ready for an amazing dog with wonderful breeders!!!

HI LINDA,
 MY FAMILY AND I WANTED TO THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN FOR OUR SWEET PUG PEARL. SHE VISITED THE VET TODAY AND THE VET SAID SHE WAS ONE VERY HEALTHY PUPPY AND THAT OUR BREEDER DID A GREAT JOB IN RAISIING AND CARING FOR HER. SHE WEIGHED IN AT 4 LBS. SHE HAS COMPLETELY STOLEN OUR HEARTS. THANKS AGAIN AND I WILL REFER MY FRIENDS OR ANYONE WHO HAPPENS TO BE LOOKING FOR A PUPPY. THANKS AGAIN

HOW ARE YOU? WE'RE DOING GREAT! STILL HAVEN'T GOTTEN MY PICTURES DEVELOPED! BUT WE DO SO LOVE OUR NEW ADDITION!  (YORKIE) EVERYTHING YOU CLAIMED ON YOUR WEBSITE IS SO TRUE! THIS IS BY FAR, THE CUTEST, SMALLEST, MOST SOCIABLE LITTLE GUY WE'VE EVER HAD! HE'S ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! WE JUST ADORE HIM! WE FUED OVER WHO'S GOING TO HOLD HIM AT NIGHT! HE'S JUST TOO SWEET, AND TOO CUTE WE ALMOST FORGET HE'S A DOG! HE'S THE SIZE OF A GUINEA PIG! IT'S EASY TO FORGET HIS CANINE STATUS, BELIEVE ME! YOU PROBABLY WON'T BELIEVE THIS...BUT HE'S ALMOST HOUSE TRAINED! IN THE TWO WEEKS WE'VE OWNED HIM HE'S ONLY HAD ONE ACCIDENT IN IS CRATE, AND THAT'S OUR FAULT BECAUSE HE HAD A BUSY DAY THAT DAY. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! IT'S AMAZING! WE'RE STILL SRUGGLING WITH OUR OTHER DOG, WHO'S NOW 4 MONTHS OLD. SHE HASN'T GOTTEN THE CONCEPT YET. OUR LITTLE COMET THAT WE ADOPTED FROM YOU IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF JUST HOW GOOD A BREEDER YOU ACTUALLY ARE! I'M SERIOUS! THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LITTLE COMET, AND OUR OTHER DOG IS AMAZING! DON'T KNOW IF I TOLD YOU THIS... BUT OUR VETERINARIAN WAS SO IMORESSED WITH COMET'S OVERALL HEALTH AND APPEARANCE THAT SHE TOOK A PICTURE FOR HER "WALL OF FAME"! I WAS THRILLED BY THAT! HE'D HAD EVERYTHING DONE, SHOT'S, WORMING, VERYTHING THAT SHOULD BE DONE BY A BREEDER BUT SO OFTEN ISN'T! WE KNOW, DUE TO PRIOR EXPERIENCE WITH OTHER BREEDERS.
JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU AGAIN! WE COULDN'T LOVE OUR LITTLE "WIGGLES" MORE THAN WE DO! MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN BUSY LATELY AND HAVE NOT HAD A CHAMCE TO TAKE OUR FILM IN FOR DEVELOPMENT. I'LL SURELY SEND PICTURES WHEN WE DO. HE'S GOT ALONG FAMOULSY WITH OUR OTHER DOGS!
SINCERELY,

Hi Linda,
I have had the opportunity to see many kennels through the years having been married to a veterinarian who was the vet for these kennels. I can tell you most kennels simply are just that--a kennel. Focused on how many and how fast they can raise and sell puppies without concern as to the quality of the puppy or the quality of the care.
I can honestly say I can give NO higher recommendation to Gary and Linda at State Line Kennel. I don't think its possible for any puppy to have had such loving care from day one.
I thought I was taking someones own personal pet. Their care and concern was as one would give to their own baby. From the first moment I saw Rosi, I had no doubt she was absolutely healthy which meant that she REALLY had received all of her shots and wormings. She was happy, inquisitive, alert,and clearly well groomed (all the time). These are qualities that a "kennel" raised puppy cannot just  "happen" to have. Rosi truly was happy. She had been loved! Along with Rosi, Gary and Linda sent a complete "new baby" gift bag absolutely full of goodies! From a fluffy baby bed, baby blankets, toys, puppy treats, food and even a yorkie key chain for me! I didn't get this much from the hospitals when I had my own babies!
I SELDOM give referrals, but I can give no higher referral than I can to State Line Kennel. If you really want a new member of your family, then you really do not need to continue wasting time surfing the internet, checking the paper, or making phone calls. You will NOT be disappointed. We are all a very happy family tonight! Thank-you Linda and Gary
