I have an Yorkshire Terrier/Australian Terrier cross bitch who is a year old. I would love her to have one litter of puppies in spring this year.

Her grandfather was a Sydney Silky so I was hoping that an owner of a Sydney or Yorkshire Terrier dog might be interested in their dog doing the honours so to speak.
