There is a Terv club in Southern California as well that you might be interested in learning more about Tervs and getting to know people and breeder recommendations, as well as getting to know different lines within the breed, if you have not already looked into them. Yorkies are a hoot, I bet they are fun to show!
It was difficult enough to make my Buyer Beware post without it sounding too "badmouthy" bc then it does not sound legitimate. I cringe every time I get an email with "Roberson Belgians?" in the subject line, its usually another owner needing help or needing to surrender their dog because they've given up on it (or trying to see if I have another method of getting in touch with her because she does not seem to answer her phone or reply to emails after a sale is final). No ethical breeder would be perfectly fine with puppies they are producing being handed over to rescue because the owners cant and/or dont know how to deal with their issues. It is not ethical for a breeder to knowingly produce puppies of substandard dispositions and continue repeating the litters.
It makes me physically ill to think about this woman breeding dogs.
- From a Roberson puppy owner and Belgian rescuer. And I cannot even post my name or email anymore bc of the harrassing phone calls due to the fact that I refuse to take down the Buyer Beware post.

To the prospective buyer: You can pick up the phone or email Kimberly at Roberson Belgians at any time. She will take the time to answer any and all questions. She is a caregiver to her dogs, they are her children but like all children they are not perfect.
To "Mrs. Maligator": I also work for Myles, Adam, Christopher and Associates in the United States. I would be very cautious if I were you and shooting off you big mouth about other u.S. breeders. Australia also has courts to hold you accountable for your liablous and slanderous actions.
