Welcome!  We are Crystal and Tim Messersmith, residing in Columbia, SC.
We are members of the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America and are an American Kennel Club Silver Breeder of Merit.
We have been showing and breeding Yorkshire Terriers for over 20 years – breeding more than 30 AKC Champions and Grand Champions.
We have shown our Yorkies in the Pacific Northwest, West, and Southeastern areas of these United States of America and achieved excellent results.
We perform genetic testing and health testing for the dogs we breed as we strive to produce healthy, intelligent, and beautiful Yorkshire Terriers – bred to our AKC Standard.
We are proud of our contribution to the Yorkshire Terrier breed!

Feel free to contact us if you have questions regarding Yorkshire Terriers.
