How to Care For
a Teacup Yorkie

What You Should Know About Yorkie Teacup

If you're considering getting a teacup Yorkie, it's important to understand its unique dietary and exercise needs. These tiny dogs don't have the same muscle mass or digestive system as their larger cousins, and they should be handled and exercised accordingly. The following tips will help you care for your new pup.

First, understand that the teacup Yorkie is a miniature dog, typically weighing two to three pounds. They grow to adult size within one to two years. This is significantly smaller than the standard Yorkshire terrier, which weighs seven pounds. This small size makes them great for apartment dwellers, as they require less exercise

Second, Teacup Yorkies are much less robust than standard Yorkies, and their life spans are shorter. While a standard Yorkie can live up to 15 years, the average Teacup Yorkie lives for seven to nine years. However, this shorter lifespan makes them more prone to certain health problems and are therefore more likely to die sooner.

Third, Teacup Yorkies are susceptible to luxating patella, a condition where the kneecap does not fit properly into the femur. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including injuries and improper nutrition. It's especially common in smaller Yorkies and can lead to frequent pain and lameness. As the bones rub against each other, the condition often gets worse, requiring surgery. Lastly, be sure to keep Teacup Yorkies out of reach of children, as they are easily hurt in crowded places. Their delicate bones can be broken with one misstep and they're not suited for being around small children or babies. A Teacup Yorkie can be a great companion for a family, but it should never be left unsupervised. Although Teacup Yorkies are highly popular, you'll be able to find one at your local shelter. Compared to buying one from a breeder, a shelter dog will be much cheaper. However, you should still learn as much as you can about them so you can decide which one is right for your family.
