"Love Robins Yorkie Nest!! I was looking for a yorkie puppy and a friend gave me Robins number. I called her she was so helpful. Went to visit quite often till the day we brought Ruby home. My husband and I adopted Ruby and she is the love of our lives. Many thanks to Robln for every thing she did for us. Ruby is 4 months old and she loves going to visit Robin and all the pups at Robin's Yorkie Nest. Thanks Robin! Tony, Marsha, and hugs and kisses from Ruby"
Parker & Ceasar
"When I decided to purchase a new Yorkie I happened to see a sign in Robin's yard so I stopped and found the most adorable little Yorkie, Parker. He is a puppy of Lacey's he captured my heart so I purchased him. I was so delighted to see how well the puppies were cared for, their living area was clean and you could see that Robin generally loves every animal that she owns or cares for. I later decided I wanted another Yorkie and once again I turned to Robin. She did not have any puppies, but she worked with me and found me another little boy. Later I went on vacation and found that my mother could not take care of two dogs so I boarded one with Robin. She took care of him like he was her own he was not in a kennel but was able to play and run with the other dogs. To this day when I take my guys to Robins they are so excited to be there I can hardly contain them. If I were to purchase another Yorkie I would once again turn to Robin for the another love of my life".

I am a Yorkie nut myself. I have 3, Max, Tucker and Mitch. My husband bought Mitch from Robins Yorkie Nest as my wedding gift. She is very knowledgable about yorkies. I have called her plenty of times for advice or how to do something. She is amazing and the puppy we bought from her is healthy! We have had no problems at all! He is amazing! We often stop to visit Robin and her puppies! She had become a part of my family. We love her!! Robin was right, you can't just have one Yorkie!!!!
"I was looking for a yorkie when I came across a picture posted by Robin of the sweetest little one I had ever seen and I had to have her. Not only is she just what I wanted, but Robin was everything I was looking for as well. My sweet Winnie has changed the lives of my husband and I but also made me what Robin calls a " yorkie mom" cause now I have two. Thanks Robin for all your help and guidance" Joan Salijko

"Hi! I'm the proud owner of Obie. A full blooded Yorkie. He's my husband's best friend and the best companion that you would ever want. If you're going to be an owner of a yorkie, Robin's Yorkie Nest is the place to go! She likes you to bring them back for hugs and kisses. Obie's mom Athena Snyder" PS....We went back to Robin's for a second yorkie. Jacob came to live with us in Dec. 2013. He is the brother to Bruno, Chip, & Molly. We just love him. Obie is related to Jacob's mom. He is a brother to Muffy. So Jacob is living with his Uncle. Uncle Obie and Jacob get along great. We are so happy to have him!
"We found our special puppy, Quincy, at Robin’s Yorkie Nest and what a blessing he has been to our family since bringing him home. Some people sell puppies for a living but not Robin. She makes the process of finding forever homes for all of her pups a life mission and she becomes an extended part of the family when you do find that one special pup who steals your heart. We love taking Quincy back to visit his “Aunt Robin” because it’s always a happy reunion for Quincy as well as for Robin!" Teri & Bob Walizer
I drove past Robins house and saw a sign "Yorkies for Sale". I stopped and she had the Sweetest little Yorkie, she didn't know if she wanted to sell her. The puppy was born with a cleft lip and had to be tube fed for 6 wks after she was born. Robin was so committed to the baby girl. She made sure that the little girl got the surgery she needed and loved her. I fell in love with her to. Robin called her Sweetie Pea and the name fit. Sweetie Pea was with Robin until the age of 6 months. Robin sold her to me and we have loved her ever since, she is still a Sweetie. Sweetie Pea is now Two years old and weighs 4 pounds and 10 ounces. Thanks to Robin
Chip & Molly
We have been a Yorkie family for more than 20 years. It has been two years since we lost our last sweet little family member. We wanted to find a breeder of the highest quality who also demonstrated the highest level of care. A good friend who is active in the competition community put us in contact with Robin. Robin carefully listened to our hopes and expectations. She invited us to visit her home and meet all of her sweet friends in the Yorkie Nest. We fell in love with Chip and Molly who have become wonderful members of our family. They are strong, loving, energetic and quite the little characters. Robin not only provided all of the information and accessories we would need to transition the puppies to our home, but also these puppies were piddle pad trained and well socialized. They are calm and enjoyable at home, even when neighbors come to visit or when the doorbell rings. We have been delighted with them. Robin provides excellent medical records and plans for excellent Yorkie health. She continues to be a great friend and resource for us as Chip and Molly grow. We would recommend Robin to anyone who loves Yorkies.

It was a great experience to meet Robin and to see how dedicated she is to her Yorkies! Our Bruno is amazing and the best companion. Robin is very knowledgeable about Yorkies and you can call her anytime and she is glad to help. We can't say enough about how pleased we were! Thanks Robin.
Clyde & Dorie
My husband Ryan and I first met Winston a few days after he was born. He was laying on his back all stretched out sleeping next to his brothers. He had a dainty little green slip of yarn around his neck so we would know who he was. He had the sweetest personality from the very beginning. Robin told us that she wanted us to come visit often and our other two Yorkies as well so that Winston would know the members of his new home long before he left her.
As time went by Ryan and I watched our new little guy really come in to his own. Soon it was time for him to come home to our home with his new brother Thurston and his new sister Dahlia
Almost immediately we noticed the differences in Winston from when our other two were his size. Winston was piddle pad trained, he was at ease in his play pen when he slept at night, and he seemed to understand that he was safe in his new home.
Robin piddle pad trains all of her pups. This makes the transition to complete potty training so much easier and I am happy to report that Winston was fully potty trained by 6 months but up until that time he would only go on his piddle pad which was so nice.
Robin also does a sensory program with the pups when they are born. You can definitely tell the difference it makes with the pups. She bathes them so they are used to water and she sends them to their new home with their very own bed, toy, and all other new puppy essentials. Even things you might not think of.
I think that out of our three yorkies that were from three different breeders Winston was the most well adjusted from the beginning. Robin really takes her breeding program seriously and she cares for each pup very carefully. The prenatal care of the mothers and the postnatal care for both is unbelievable and I am grateful to have found her.
We would certainly buy all future pups from Robin.
Winston is our little sweet heart.

Our Little Twix
Early in 2014, Shelly and I decided we might get a puppy come summer time. We both loved the Yorkie breed. We did lots of research and were not happy until we found out about Robin Landgrebe and her Yorkies in Hughesville.
After serveral phone conversations we met with Robin and her whole Yorkie family. What a comforting and wonderful experience to see how one woman can be so passionate and dedicated to her dogs.
We fell in love with one of Robin's girls, Bailey, and found out that Bailey may be having puppies with her cute little mate, Jack. Well, the stage was set. From the beginning of Bailey's pregnancy to the call in the ealry morning on May 19th, the date of the puppies birth, it was all just the best experience we could have every wanted.
We met our little girl, Twix (named because of her sable coloring similar to caramel) and her sister, Onyx (now named Lilly), on that day in May, and over the next 12 weeks we visited often with them. We were always amazed with the wonderful care our Twix was given. Robin's pure knowledge of Yorkies is just remarkable.
We now have our little Twix at home and what a wonderful, healthy, well adjusted puppy she is.

Hi, my name is Flynn! I joined my family on January 15, 2015. I am the sweetest little thing they ever did see. It must be, because they keep telling me I’m so adorable! I didn’t even cry the first night I slept there, which my new family was completely amazed about. I don’t know why though. I was really well prepared for the transition to my new family by Robin Landgrebe. She took really good care of me! She piddle pad trained me, provided a sensory program which make me strong and smart and provided a really clean and loving environment. I also got to visit with my new family before I moved in so I wasn’t as scared when the time came. I am loving my new home and know that Robin is always thinking of me and is there to help out with anything my new family needs. If you looking for a Yorkie…Robin’s Yorkie Nest is the place to go! Hugs and Kisses Robin!

You will be forever in our hearts and missed daily! Mom's Bubby!
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
Ode to Tut
Ode to Tut...
Sit back at prepare yourself for a very touching story of how God works in our lives and even uses our little furry friends to bless others.
On 3/16/08 I went to a breeder in PA to look at a small male Yorkie. I was told that he weighed 3 lbs. which was the right size for my female for breeding purposes. While I was at this home, I witnessed the little guy (who I later named Tut) being tossed about and even being carried by the neck by the lady's grandson who was around three years of age. I knew that this was not the right home for this little dog. I also knew that something was wrong with this male Yorkie. He didn't feel like he weighed 3 lbs. but the woman didn't have a scale to weigh him. The place was horribly dirty with an electrified fence around the dog pen. When I asked why there was an electric fence, the woman said the last Yorkie jumped over the fence and was killed in the road and that the fence was installed to prevent the dogs from jumping over it! I knew immediately that the fence would kill the dog before he even got to the road. It was at that moment that I decided to purchase the frail, sickly Yorkie. I knew there was a reason that I was there and that I couldn't leave without rescuing that poor little pup.
When I arrived back home, I weighed the little guy and he only weighed 1.5 lbs at 8 months of age! After reviewing his medical records I noticed that he weighed 1lb 9 oz at 9 weeks of age. I immediately contacted my vet and he asked for a stool sample which showed 5 types of worms! Poor little Tut was being eaten alive from the inside out. I then contacted the breeder to give her the heads up. When you have those types of worms in your soil, you have to treat your dogs AND the soil. They can live in the soil for up to 3 years...... The breeder tried to tell me that a friend stopped by and must have infected the soil, because that friends' dog had the same worms! REALLY?! Needless to say, Tut has remained with me in my Yorkie Nest for the past 5 years! I always felt if the right home came along for him, then so be it, otherwise, he’d stay with me.
Fast forward to May 2012...I rescued a 19 lb. Yorkie named Lexy and immediately listed her on Craigslist. Much to my amazement, the first couple who contacted me actually came later that day to take the big one home with them. Later, I received a second inquiry about Lexy from a nurse named Christine. She told me that she was looking for a little dog for a patient of hers. A disabled 12 year old little girl named Lexi who is in a wheelchair and has a trach tube (ironically the little girl actually had the same name as the 19 lb Yorkie that had just been placed!). The nurse shared with me that it was the little girl's dream to own a small dog. Immediately, I knew that the 19 lb Yorkie would've been too much for Lexi even though they shared the same name, I felt that one of my own Yorkies, Tut, would be the perfect match, so loveable and small yet, a personality much bigger than his size. That same day, Christine came to meet Tut in person. The wheels were in motion. We both decided that he was perfect dog for little Lexi. I knew the hard part was just around the corner...convincing myself that I could actually go through with this. I knew in my heart of hearts that this was the perfect home for my Tut. I offered Tut several years of temporary placement while preparing him for his permanent home, now with Lexi.
Just a few days later, fighting back tears, I delivered Tut to his new home with Miss Lexi. And what an impression Lexi made on me - Lexi is 12 going on 24 and so wise beyond her years! Lexi wanted to rename Tut to Cashew, explaining that when she said his name, Cashew, people would think that she sneezed and they would say "God Bless You" and Tut would be the world’s most blessed dog! But knowing how hard it was for me to give him up, Lexi decided to keep the name Tut in honor of me.
I had intended to take photos of Tut and Lexi but it was just too difficult. After they all went outside, I quietly walked in the other direction, made my way to my car and drove home in tears. I didn't want Lexi to see how upset I was. I had a rough few days after placing Tut with Lexi because I missed him so much. Just knowing that he is making this young lady's dream come true, gave me the strength to lessen the ache in my heart.
Lexi has blessed MY life and now Tut's too....
I left Tut with a new bed and crate pad that I made out of material with frogs on it, as well as a harness and leash. Much too my surprise, when I delivered Tut to Lexi, I found frog figurines throughout Lexi's house. Turns out when Lexi was born, they knew there were problems medically, and Lexi's mother decided to get a tattoo of a frog in honor of her little girl. Lexi's mother wanted Lexi to overcome her disability and to be able to play leap-frog so the tattoo serves as a reminder of that goal.
We never know who God's going to put in our path or what He's going to use to get our attention. Funny thing is, it always seems to work out according to His plan...which isn't always in line with our own plan!
