    I have heard of them. Aren't they the barkless dogs? Beautiful dog too.

    barkless in the strictess sence of the woord. He still makes a noise, kinda like a yodel or a barrooo. It's very odd. He doesn't do it all that often, I guess that's a good thing. He's about 5 years old and we've had him for about 3 months now, we rescued him from the pound. He was seriously neglected and now has a really bad separation anxiety. Oh well, I hope to turn him into a hunting dog, pheasant and quail.

    Sounds like you may have some work ahead of you but I’m sure it will be worth it in the end. We got our Yorkie when he was about 1 1/2. I think the kids he lived with tormented him with their bikes and skateboards because he hates them. We’ve had to work hard at that and he still growls at them. But he’s a good dog and couldn’t imagine not having him as part as our family.

    I do remember the video of them yodeling. It was funny as heck.

    My sister had a male and female from the time they were pups to when they died. I think she tolerated them but couldn't bear to get rid of them.

    They were the most stubborn, determined dogs I have ever seen. They had an invisible fence to keep the dogs from escaping, but it failed to do the job at times. My brother-in-law had his arm through the collar/device when he was installing the wire, got too close, and zapped himself - once. He said it was really painful. To escape after the wire was installed, the male would approach the fence until the pain forced him to the ground. He would still crawl and fight his way through, enduring the shocks, until he was clear.
