Teacup Yorkshire Terrier For Sale - Beware

 

 
 Do Yorkshire Terrier puppies come in different sizes?
"T Cup yorkies, Teacup yorkies, Purse Puppy, Micro Mini's, Miniature yorkies or Standard yorkies"

THEY DON'T EXIST!

Let me start by being very frank, there's ONLY ONE Yorkshire Terrier classification "Toy Breed" plain and simple! There are no "t - cup" no "teacup" no "teddy bear micro mini" no "babydoll miniature" no "purse puppy".

You simply have a very small dog, with the exception of the "standard."  A tiny yorkie baby that is fragile, prone to health problems and often nothing but a heartbreak waiting to happen. A yorkie shouldn't be a frail nervous little dog yet these little ones tend to be just that! The well bred Yorkshire Terrier "yorkie" is a proud, high spirited, exciting little terrier who thinks it's as big as a Great Dane. 

Beware of Yorkshire Terrier breeders who advertise descriptive words other than "toy" when searching for your perfect yorkie puppy companion!


I do NOT recommend purchasing a Yorkshire Terrier under 4 pounds estimated adult weight. Many yorkie babies under 4 lbs tend to have frail body structure, fragile bones and numerous heath issues (please refer to our - Hypoglycemia). Many lack proper mouth size for healthy teeth resulting in early teeth loss and difficulty eating. Many tiny yorkies have trouble regulating blood sugar resulting in hypoglycemic shock or worse coma and death.

Uncaring kennels deliberately and continuously breed high-risk Yorkshire Terriers charging outrageous prices for the tiniest offspring. Many Internet breeders who advertise yorkie puppies for sale charge  $3,500.00 to $10,000.00  for "T Cup yorkies, Teacup yorkies, Purse Puppy, Micro Mini's, Miniature yorkies" Yorkshire Terrier puppies. These kennels breed greed, often over breeding their undersized bitches never once considering her health nor the health and well being of her offspring.  Don't support these irresponsible breeders.

A yorkie that matures to 4 - 7lbs is what every reputable breeder strives for consistently breeding within breed standard NOTHING MORE or NOTHING LESS. The imaginary "teacup yorkies, t - cup yorkies, micro mini yorkies, babydoll, teddy bear miniature yorkies or pocketbook puppies" are terms
uncaring breeders use to describe their undersized yorkie puppies. These breeders  consistently breed very tiny 2 - 4lb adults producing the tiniest offspring resulting in VERY high risk puppies!

Most frequently asked questions "Do you have teacup yorkies for sale?" or " Do you breed miniature
yorkies for sale?" NO they don't exist! Or "Do you have yorkies small enough to fit in my purse full grown?" answer NOT USUALLY! NOTE: The reputable breeder will on occasion have smaller puppies
from a normal sized breeding pair, these puppies are not as high risk being conceived from normal size parents, unlike breeders that purposely breed their tiniest adults for the sole purpose of producing very undersized yorkie puppies.

Why then do so many breeders advertise these yorkies for sale?


Unscrupulous breeders attract a buyers attention by using catchy phrases like "teacup yorkies,  baby doll miniature yorkies, teddy bear yorkies, t cup yorkies or micro mini yorkies" for sale, taking advantage of those unfamiliar with the breed or the Yorkshire Terriers breed standard as stated by AKC These
breeders are salespeople convincing a buyer they're INVESTING in something special.  These breeders also base PRICING on SIZE or shall I say "lack of size" not QUALITY, the smaller the yorkie the larger the price tag.


What they DON'T disclose the smaller the dog the larger the vet bills!

Be aware, many kennels, yorkie puppy mills and back yard breeders advertise for sale "standard yorkie puppies"  these puppies weight will exceed 7 lbs at adult size, some yorkies maturing up to 20lbs.  Yes, I said 20 lbs. These breeders tend to be those who choose to ignore breed standard.  Breeding an over sized female to a much smaller male is irresponsible and more often the Yorkshire Terrier bitch genealogy will prove the breeder wrong.

Remember the Yorkshire Terrier is classified as "toy group," the breed standard is written by the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America "YTCA," and adopted by the American Kennel Club "AKC," not to exceed 7lbs. On average, a Yorkshire Terrier weighs between 4 and 7 pounds as an adult.

NOTE: when purchasing a yorkie puppy refer to our - weight/growth chart. A puppy weighing 2lbs or more at 12 weeks old will double their weight as an adult in most cases (sometimes more).  Old rule of thumb, triple the weight of an 8 week old yorkie puppy and double the weight at 12 weeks. When in doubt request the breeder to weigh the puppy and the dam/sire in front of you, if they're offended or explain they can't perhaps you should reconsider buying from this breeder.

 

BUYING A YORKIE PUPPY

Do not buy from a "click and pay" yorkie puppy for sale website or a site that provides a "shopping cart," for your shopping convenience, they now have your credit card number and your money, what next, does this puppy actually exist, often times NO! These breeders are more concerned about $$$$ deposits and easy pay than the welfare of their puppies. You know nothing about the breeder, the breeder knows nothing about you, yet they're tugging on your emotions and heart strings to quickly "reserve your puppy today."  A reputable breeder will require personal information about you and the home you are offering to assure proper placement of their puppies. A reputable breeder wants to get to know you before committing a puppy and will be there for you throughout the life of the puppy.

Do not buy from a site where you can not directly speak with the breeder, there are many yorkie puppy brokers on the web, their sites mimic a breeders site, they're simply a middleman that know nothing about the puppy, in most cases they're hired by a conglomerate or network of breeders that can't be bothered with the placement of their puppies or they're hired by mill breeders to sell their puppies, these too in many cases provide the "click and pay" options.
Please refer to -
Stop Puppy Mills

Web sites that accept credit cards, offering next-day shipping are quick and easy sources for finding yorkie puppies, donít be fooled by a pretty web site that accepts credit cards and high-pressure sales tactics, promoting a puppy's size in a teacup or drinking glass is just plain wrong! RED FLAG.

If it's to good to be true then it is!  "Free Yorkie Pay Shipping Only"

Beware of yorkie puppy scams - Do not buy from ads titled " free yorkie puppies" or "yorkies for  shipping costs only" "rehoming yorkies for free" "adorable yorkie needs new home" "moved free yorkies " typical ad content is they've moved out of the country and must rehome their puppy or puppies, usually missionary requesting only shipping cost paid via Western Union RED FLAG.  Never wire money when buying a yorkie, never pay via Western Union for a puppy!
Please refer to -
Yorkshire Terrier Puppy Scams.
 

Do not buy from a pet store, you are supporting the puppy mill breeder, they have no concern for the quality, health or welfare of their adult breeding yorkies, nor the health, temperament, quality or placement of the puppies they are producing. The puppy mills do not socialize their puppies nor do they provide the proper nurturing and health care a young yorkie puppy requires and deserves. They sell their puppies at a very young age to the pet stores, often times at 6 weeks old the puppies destination are cages in your local pet store. The pet store knows how to run your Mastercard but knows nothing about the puppy and could care less, the puppy is merely a part of their pet store inventory.
Please refer to -
 Pet Store Abuse

Interviewing the breeder

Ask for details about their breeding program (If they can't give you concrete details - red flag)

Ask if they strive to breed within the AKC Yorkshire Terrier breed quality standard, the standard is the blueprint or recipe to producing a good representation of the Yorkshire Terrier breed (if they can't answer, don't understand what it is or dismiss it - red flag)
Please refer to the  - AKC Yorkshire Terrier Standard.

Inquire about the pedigrees of their breeding adults, the pedigrees are vital to the reputable breeder in many ways determining size, temperament, quality and health of the puppies
(if they can't discuss the lineage of your potential puppy or scoff it off as unimportant -
red flag)

At what age do they place their puppies? Reputable breeders will not place a yorkie puppy before 12 weeks old often times longer depending on weight. (A breeder that places puppies between 6 - 10 weeks old - red flag)
Please refer to our - puppy growth stages.
 

Ask what health issues they've experienced in their breeding, do they provide a health guarantee? The reputable breeder will provide a very detailed puppy contract with at least a 1 year guarantee covering genetic health issues that may arise within the first year in the toy breed. (if they do not - red flag)
Please refer to our - adoption contract.

Finally if the breeder doesn't interview you, she/he is more concerned about the sell $$$ than the proper placement of the puppy RED FLAG.
Please refer to our - adoption questionnaire.
 

Don't let emotions get the best of you, don't buy the first puppy you see, take your time finding that perfect yorkie puppy this is a 12-15 year commitment!

WARNING REMINDER: Never send Western Union money requests, there are several puppy scammers, be careful if the price is too good to be true then it is!
 

Remember a REPUTABLE breeder will always be there for you, for the life of your puppy!
