BRED, BORN, AND RAISED IN MAINE
Unlike many breeders, we raise our puppies in our own home, under our own direct care. There is no separate kennel, and we plan to keep it that way.
We focus on raising quality puppies, and have an overwhelmingly positive reputation - always backing our puppies 100%. We're the type of people that often go the extra mile - we answer those late night phone calls where you think your puppy might have accidentally swallowed something, we have families that have our puppies that regularly stop by just to say hello, and we have even sold puppies to those in the Veterinary field - From Receptions, to Vet Techs, to even Veterinarians.
Owner and breeder, Tammy Abbott has always been an advocate for Yorkies and ethical breeding practices. She is a member of the Ethical Hobby Breeders of Americana, the AKC Club, The Yorkshire Terrier Club of America, and a regular financial donor and frequent foster of the local Yorkie rescue group in Maine.

Abbra Yorkies strives to produce the best possible puppies, with only the best temperaments and health. The parents are kept on site in most cases, and many of them were also bred, born, and raised by us. All parents have champion blood lines, and as you'll see, quite a few are champions themselves - often shown by Tammy Abbott.
Yorkshire Terriers, affectionately known as "Yorkies," offer big personalities in a small package. Though members of the Toy Group, they are terriers by nature and are brave, determined, investigative and energetic. Named for the English county from which they originally hail, Yorkshire Terriers were used in the nineteenth century to catch rats in clothing mills. Surprisingly enough, in its beginnings, the Yorkie belonged to the working class, especially the weavers; in fact, facetious comments were often made about how the dogs' fine, silky coats were the ultimate product of the looms. Eventually, the breed left the workforce and became a companion animal to families of European high society.
Tammy has been breeding Yorkies for over 18 years in Maine. She focuses on quality litters and a small operation in order to take the best possible care of every Yorkie puppy.
In addition, she takes care a step further to ensure that all Sires and Dams are tested and free of any foreseeable genetic diseases including bile acid testing. Health and temperament are the major focus with the added bonus of finishing championships.
She spends her weekend in the show ring or at home raising puppies watching for the one that will be the next hopeful in the ring.
All the dogs are in the home and puppies are raised underfoot with care and attention the way it should be.
We work closely with Victoria Cole-Wilbur at Sugar Maple Yorkies. who is not only my show comrade but also my very good friend.
