Guide to Buy a Teacup Yorkie
When we think of the world “teacup” we think of extremely small and under average size. At least most of us think of that when it comes to dogs. They can be extremely cute and cuddle. Especially the Teacup Yorkie. They are so fluffy and little but do provide lots of love. There are some things to consider before getting one of these precious pups.
First and foremost puppies do grow up. Even though this particular dog stays small it will not be a puppy forever. While it is still a puppy it will require a lot of work and patients. They are living and breathing things. They are not toys to show off and although this is an ideal size to be a “purse” dog, it does require love and exercise. This dog is will more than likely be 2-4lb range. This is way below the average weight of this breed which is up to 7lbs or more. Since they are considered in the “toy” group, it is important to understand that they are very fragile and can break bones very easily. They can easily hurt themselves by jumping off a bed or couch or could easily be stepped on.
When looking to buy these “Teacup” yorkies be careful if the breeder states their specialty is “teacups” because in a lot of cases they end up being premature puppies and tend to be small because of that. This can cause the dog to have constant respiratory issues and shorten the dog’s life.
Make sure you are getting the pup from someone reputable and someone you trust. Word of mouth goes along way so listen to those around you. Make sure you get a pup that you will have and love for a lifetime
