Zen is 100% full blooded AKC registered Yorkshire Terrier. The "parti colored" yorkie is slowly becoming a very popular color amoungst open minded breeders who want to grow in their breeding program and expand on the "new". It is my hope, that one day, the parti color yorkie will enter the show ring. Because of their exquisite beauty, I think this will happen within the next 10 years. The parti color is a recessive gene which was to be bred OUT to create the traditional color yorkie that we know today. However, there are still recessive genes in the lines and occasionally they "pop up" in someone's litter. Breeders in CA took note of this, and decided to bring the color back to the surface and they created the parti colored yorkie. This beautiful color has slowly worked its way east and is now seen in a few breeders in the country who love and appreciate its beauty. In 2010, I began to have parti puppies and have produced some beautiful puppies from them. I have 2 parti colored females and Jezabel who is a parti "carrier". This is an exciting and new challenge for me, and I look forward to it. Pictures below.
