We are thrilled with our new little Biewer Yorkie, "Boomer" born on 6/4/20.  "Boomer" has adjusted well with his Yorkie sister, "Lola" whom we also adopted from Irene and Tabitha in 2017.  Boomer is full of energy, loves to eat and has made Lola a very happy pup.  After such a pleasurable experience with our "Lola" adoption, there was no other place I would consider for a 2nd pup.  Looking for a healthy and happy puppy (or 2) ?

No place like Sunny South Puppies :)

We just got Minnie, our Biewer carrier Yorkie 3 days ago.

Alvin flew in with her to NJ so she wouldn't be traumatized and I am so in love with her! 

Irene was more then a pleasure to work with and kept me up to date with pictures, emails and phone calls while I was waiting for my baby to come home!

Minnie came home happy, healthy and full of love and spunk!!

I couldn't have asked for a better breeder or puppy!

Looking forward to many years of love and fun with my new baby!!

Thanks Irene

I got my little Biewer Yorkie "Sweet Pea" from Irene in July, 2019. I highly recommend getting a puppy from Irene. Before I picked up Sweet Pea,

Irene would send me pictures and videos of her progress. Sweet Pea has beautiful silky hair and her coloring is so different! I take her with me to all the stores and she always attracts a crowd. Sweet Pea is a feisty little fireball that loves to run around and play with her toys, but as soon as she hears 

"Let me rub your belly" she will drop everything and get into position!

Sweet Pea is the perfect little puppy and I am very happy to be her mommy!

This is our puppy

Princess Kneesaa.

She is now 3 months old and is the sweetest puppy.

Irene and Tabitha took wonderful care of her prior to coming to live with us.

She was already being house trained and she didn't make a peep all night since she's been home.

We love her so much!



Sybil Hatton



We appreciate Irene for accommodating us with regular photos while our puppy was growing and prior to coming home.  She also permitted us to visit our new family member to watch and experience the growth of our new girl.  Bailee, our puppy is now 5 month old and we have been extremely happy with our choice with Sunny South Puppies and our new family member

I recently bought my puppy from Irene of Sunny South puppies. I am so thankful for the puppy and my experience with Irene, and family. Irene is honest, caring and will do anything to accommodate you. The puppy I purchased is sweet,  lovable and everything you could ask for. I credit all these good things to Irene and her family. 

I would  recommend  her highly to anyone. Bottom line she cares about the buyer and well as the puppies she is selling. Kudos to Irene and Family.  






Meet Luna, formerly known as Sage.
I picked her up on 6/10/2020 at Mrs.Schlabach home, which is  lovely, I felt very welcomed. I came all the way from Philadelphia,PA  that was a big risk for me I was hoping everything was legit & it was .  I can honestly say it was worth it. Mrs Schlabach was very kind , she answered my calls & sent videos/ pics. If you live in her area I’m sure you can visit your future puppy. Once in her home she will explain everything you need to know about your new fur baby paperwork will ready along with with food , toy & blanket. One thing that I really loved is I didn’t feel like she was just trying to get a sale we talked  for awhile Which I enjoyed. I also brought my 6 year daughter along with me she enjoyed the experience as well. Overall I’m beyond satisfied with my puppy Luna is a great addition to our family, she’s super playful & love taking things running away with them lol. If you are thinking about purchasing a puppy I definitely recommend Mrs Schlabach, you won’t regret it🥰.            Sincerely, Danielle

We had an unforgetable experience on our first visit to Sunny South.

We went to pick out a Biewer Terrier.

We were blindsided by an adoreable

Shih Tzu puppy named Sugar.

He convinced us that we should take him home with us.

Our new family includes Sugar and

a precious Biewer Terrier named


We are thankful for our experience

with Sunny South Puppies.

I went to Irene's to check out her puppies and fell in love with Lexi.

I went back to pick her up when she was 8 weeks old.

She is now over 2 + months old.

Lexi is a joy to have in my home.

I had checked out a few places before deciding on Irene's puppies but when I walked in and saw how clean her house was and the puppy accommodations

I was impressed.

I would recommend

Sunny South Puppies to anyone.

We absolutely love our little Ziggy. He is a 1 year old Biewer Yorkie.  He is a happy, healthy bundle of fur,  full of love and energy.  Irene was very helpful throughout the adoption process.  She is very knowledgeable and gave me great advice on care and nutrition for our little  fur baby.  I highly recommend Sunny South puppies.  ️️️. It's easy.

I bought a Mal/Shi from Mrs Irene, she worked with me in every way to make sure my experience buying from her would be the best and it was!

I love my little Bella and if I ever buy another puppy it will only be from

Mrs Irene!

We are so happy to have our little girl Georgia. She is 5 months old and full of energy and a happy little girl.

We also have two Yorkie boys, 7 and 4 years old and they get along so well.

We were somewhat skeptical to searching for puppies online, but we had very lucky to found Irene!! 

Since our first conversation she answered our questions and also invited us to her house to meet the puppies and parents.

Irene is very knowledgeable and willing to help with any concern after we took our baby to home. 

Thank you Irene, Georgia added more happiness to our life

We are “over the moon” happy with our precious Yorkie Madeline. She is perfect in every way. Our Maddie came to us at 9 weeks already completely wee pad trained, healthy, well adjusted, happy, funny and with perfect Yorkie features. She was a gift for our 11 year old son but is truly a gift to us all. We just took her on our trip NC. She was perfect the whole way on the plane and hotel. She was not at all nervous, had zero accidents and was thrilled to be along on the trip. I found this miraculous as she is only 10 weeks old.

Irene and Alvin have the best puppies I have ever seen. I feel so lucky to have found Sunny South Puppies. Our lives are so much brighter with our perfect angel Maddie!

Our Max and Millie are litter mates and are six months old.

When we contacted Irene about the puppies she was most helpful in answering questions and allowing us to come and see the puppies and take pictures, but never pushed to make a decision but allow us time to talk about it.

Pixie is now 5 months old and she is the perfect little puppy, of course! Such a happy, healthy little girl.  She is the hit of our neighborhood! We could not be any happier with our decision to take her home.  Irene was so kind and informative. You can’t go wrong getting a puppy from Sunny South Puppies!

Have a nice day!

Willow was purchased just a few days ago.  When I arrived at Irene’s home I was so relieved to see Willow romping around with another puppy in this big beautiful home and she was having so much fun.  I could tell immediately that she was home raised and well adjusted.  Willow's personality is outgoing, trusting,  and very loving.  She loves to give kisses.  She is  healthy, and pee pad trained.  Her personality is so perfect it’s much more than I would have ever expected.

What I found at Irene’s was a  perfect and precious little angel.  I know a lot of care went into raising her.  She’s adjusting to her new home now and I look forward to our future with our tiny little Willow.

We are so happy with our little Lacie. She is just over 4 months old and so cute and smart. We enjoyed meeting and working with Irene. Her home is spotless and our Lacie was perfectly presented when we went to visit. You can tell that Irene is very knowledgeable and very concerned about the health and welfare of her puppies.

Since the first time I spoke to Irene she was very kind and gave me all the information asked about the puppy. She told me I could come to her house and see the puppy before I make the decision. It was love at first sight. Our baby Shih Tzu is a very good puppy, so sweet, healthy, a blessing in our lives. Irene works hard with her dogs. We are very happy and satisfied.   Ananda Pereira -

Working with Irene and her family at Sunny South Puppies has been a fantastic experience. Our twin Biewer Carrier Yorkies, Sundance and Shiloh, were extremely well adjusted from the day we brought them home at 10 weeks old. Our vet was very impressed with them and said most puppies aren't nearly as socialized as ours have been. At nearly 6 months old, they are healthy, smart, alert, friendly and super cute! Irene is such a caring and knowledgeable breeder, and she continues to be a valuable resource to us as first time Yorkie owners. We are very happy with our decision to purchase puppies from her.

 Milo is our Malshi  who was born on Jun 2, 2020.We brought him home Aug 4,2020. He is the joy of our lives and no doubt is the cutest dog there ever was. Thank you Irene, Tabatha and your family for dedicating your lives to breeding and taking amazing care of the beautiful animals you have bred for so many families to enjoy all over the globe. Irene has kept in touch with us even before Milo was born. After Milo was born we were invited to watch Milo grow, and bond with us until he was ready to leave the litter. He was well adjusted to us the day we took him home. Irene educates her families on the puppies growth, type of food she feeds them ,health requirements, shots, worming, and all around growth within their siblings in their litters. They have access to Irene's spacious home, super clean floors and beautiful surroundings. Their home is a loving ,happy ,and spotless environment . If you are looking for a small breed dog. Go no further than Sunnysouth  puppies in Dade City Fl. Our next puppy will only be from one of Irene's litters again.

We got our Puppy Reese from Sunny South Puppies , Irene and her family are  hands down  best Breeders around.

Their puppies are high quality , well cared for and kept in a safe,  clean  environment .   We had a wonderful overall experience.

Thank you Sunny South Puppies for our beautiful, well mannered , lovable Pup





We’ve had this adorable, fluffy baby for 6 days now and he’s completely captured our hearts!

Many thanks to Irene and family for being so accommodating and friendly. I would highly recommend Sunny South Puppies.

They have a clean, organized, and loving home.

Thanks again for our Cowboy. He is simply the best!

We got our Howie when he was 10  weeks old. Irene responded immediately after texting her and invited us to her home. We immediately fell in love and bought our cute, sweet, smart boy home with us. Irene's home was immaculate, the puppy clean and playful. She even showed me the mom and where they slept. I would refer anyone looking for a puppy to Irene and her daughter Tabatha!

Thank You for our sweet boy!






I recently brought my new baby “Cupcake” home a few weeks ago and it has been so delightful raising her.

Irene and her daughter do an amazing job with socializing their puppies so that they are ready to fit into your family!

What I love about SunnySouthPuppies is that they truly care about the puppies they raise and they make sure their puppies are ready to be in a new home!

It has been a wonderful experience adopting a new puppy from Sunnysouth, they are truly the best breeders I’ve come across!

Our Morkie, Mazzi, has been with his new family for a week now! As our first pet, he has brought a lot of joy and playfulness with him. Kids were super shocked when they came home!! He got used to us and the layout of the house very quickly. Running around in circles! He loves to play and chew on everything except his toys. Thank you so much Irene and Tabitha for our little bundle. You both do a great job. I appreciate the starter kit and the advice you gave us! Thanks again.

I came across Sunny South Puppies in searching for a Biewer and so glad I did!  Kenji, born Oct. 2020,  has been at his furever home for over a week and what a joy he is.  Kenji is playful, sociable, and so adorable!  Everyone that sees him loves him. 

Irene, Alvin, & Tabatha are dedicated to their furbabies.  Thank you!

 My Yorkie from your 6/2020 litter has been the delight of my life. I am enjoying her bouncy runs down the hallway. The pup Typsy is a rambunctious tiny whirlwind. I am so glad to have one of your puppies. I would say you are a top breeder of Yorkies.

We met Mrs. Irene last year when we got our precious "Millie Rose".

Now we have added two siblings of Millie's to our family.

Gabby and Tucker, both of which were born on March 14 2021.

Our hearts are full and so is our house!!!! We love our fur babies, they are the highlight of our days!!!! 

Mrs. Irene kept in touch with us during the process while our fur babies were still in her care. She sent us photos and videos and kept us posted on their progress! She welcomed us in to her beautiful home to visit with our fur babies, when the day came for us to pick them up, she sent them on their way with a little care package and a lot of love!

Thank you Mrs. Irene,

Thank you so much Irene for our precious Maltipoo puppy "Quin"  

He is so Adorable and The Love of our Lives!! 

I had been searching for a puppy for our family and the timing was just right when we finally found him on, even his birthdate was a confirmation that he was meant to be for us.   

He is such a Happy, Healthy, Adorable little puppy boy, and at times I wish we had adopted one of his sisters along with him since he's such a wonderful puppy.  

Thank you again for the new joy to our family.


Many Blessings,

Months of endless research on finding the perfect yorkie breeder paid off when I found Irene. She is outstanding in customer service and so authentic it will leave a mark on you in the most positive way.


As for Coco - I am overwhelmed at the amount of compliments I get on a daily basis. His gorgeous appearance and even temperament is proof that Irene breeds for quality.


I am in love with my new puppy and grateful for the memories in the making. Irene gets an 11/10 in my book and I recommend her and to anyone and everyone.
