About Our Teacup Yorkshire Terriers for Sale
Teacup Yorkshire Terriers for Sale | Yorkshire Puppies for Sale | Yorkshire Terriers for Sale
The Teacup Yorkie is tiny, fluffy, and surprisingly confident. These cute mini Yorkies are simply a Yorkshire Terrier who has been bred to be significantly smaller than normal. Designed to be the perfect apartment pet, lapdog, and companion, Teacup Yorkies usually weigh between 2 and 4 pounds.
Aside from their small stature, Teacup Yorkies look the same as their larger counterparts. They have small lean bodies covered in thick fur. Their heads are relatively boxy and their snouts are shallow compared to other dog breeds. On the top of their head, they have perky ears that are always standing at attention. On their back end, they can have either long tails or short stubby ones. Typically, teacup varieties have longer tails that curl upwards. We expect our Teacup Yorkshire Terriers for sale to weigh 2 to 4 pounds full-grown and stand tall at just 5 inches.
Coat And Color
The coat is the most identifiable feature of a Yorkshire Terrier. For standard and toy varieties, the coat is predominantly black. Splashes of tan on the face, belly, legs, and ears create a very distinct pattern that you can’t miss. These dogs do have a rare recessive white gene. It results in a pale-colored pooch. This coloration is incredibly rare and often fetches a very high price tag for breeders.
The interesting thing about the Teacup Yorkie’s silky coat is that it grows pretty fast. These dogs can quickly get overwhelmed by their fur. It’ll grow past their eyes, over their toes, and become unmanageable. Thus, regular grooming appointments are a must.
Teacup Yorkies are fun dogs to care for. What they lack in size they make up for in personality. They are playful creatures who will show tons of affection towards their owners. You won’t have a problem getting these dogs to cuddle on your lap. However, they’ll also be just as happy exploring and chasing a ball around the house.
That said, they tend to be timid around other people and animals. While you can socialize early to avoid potential behavior problems, but you’re still going to have to deal with nervousness and anxiety. These dogs are very vulnerable and they are fully aware of that fact.
The life expectancy of a Teacup dog is relatively long. The Teacup Yorkie can be expected to live anywhere between 12 to 15 years
Known Health Issues
As with any dog, Teacup Yorkies are susceptible to a myriad of problems. They are designer dogs after all! Here are some of the most common health issues:
- Broken Bones — The bones of a Teacup Yorkie are very fragile. Thus, these pups can’t do a lot of the things that other dogs can.
- Patellar Luxation — Another common issue is patellar luxation. Their tiny kneecaps can develop incorrectly, making it easy to dislocate.
- Dental Issues — Yorkshire Terriers are notorious for developing dental problems. In addition to standard periodontal disease, they may not lose all of their baby teeth or encounter developmental issues. Most pups lose half their teeth at some point during their lives. It’s important to get regular checkups from your vet to ensure that you’re addressing dental issues as they come up.
- Low Blood Sugar — Teacup Yorkies need to eat regularly throughout the day. Otherwise, they can develop hypoglycemia. Low blood sugar can cause serious health problems. This includes seizures and death.
