Teacup Yorkies

There is no such breed as a teacup Yorkie! The breed standard states that a Yorkie can weigh from 4 to 7 pounds.

If a breeder or pet store tries to sell you a "teacup", run, do not walk for the nearest exit. These tiny pups may be sold too early just so they may call them a teacup Yorkie.

Keep in mind that the smaller Yorkies will have more health problems than the larger ones.
