Teacup and tiny Yorkshire Terriers are bred because we love them and to meet the demand for smaller dogs more suited to our increasingly urban lifestyles. The breed has charmed us into wanting to bring them into our homes and lives.

Teacup dogs, especially puppies, are very much in demand. They are also relatively expensive compared to the standard breed of Yorkshire Terriers. At the upper end of the scale you will often see tiny Yorkies selling for as much as $2000 in the USA and over £1000 in the UK and in some cases even more.

micro yorkie with cat

On a more realistic note, most miniature Yorkies sell for on average $750 in the USA and £450 in the UK.

You can find them cheaper, but you need to be careful when doing so to establish just how responsible the breeders are. It could be a false economy to buy a teacup Yorkie with a poor pedigree, as it could cost you much more in vet bills later on than if you had bought from a responsible breeder.

If you see a Teacup Yorkie for sale under these dollar amounts: $100, $200, $300, $400 or $500 then beware as it could either have health issues or be a scam. If you are searching for ‘Teacup Yorkies near me for $200, $400 or even $500’ then sadly you are living in a fantasy world. You want a fit and healthy puppy that has been careful bred and cared for. This costs money and time! A ‘cheap’ puppy is not that when you end up spending thousands of dollars in vet bills!

Mini Yorkies are also very popular in the following countries: Australia, Canada, Phillipines.

The teacup, micro or even very small Yorkie are bred by the mating of two genetically small Yorkshire Terriers. Falling below the official standard size still allows the puppy to be classified and registered as a purebred.

A concern with the practice of breeding of dogs purely for size is health. By breeding from the smallest dogs from a litter, it is possible to be nurturing health defects. Often the smallest of a litter is referred to as the runt. The weakest dog can, by being bred from, pass on the weaker genes.

Like any other breed of dog, the little Yorkie can be seen as a novelty and a quick way to make money.

Luckily there are responsible breeders who recognize the risks to the Yorkie because of this demand.

mini yorkie

Experienced and established breeders are aiming to meet the demand for teacup Yorkshire Terriers with a strong bloodline from their own healthy dogs. So as long as you buy from a reputable breeder, there is no reason why these smaller dogs should have any more health problems than a larger dog.

What is a fact is that because of their smaller size, they don’t have the reserve that a larger dog has. In other words, they need to get to the vets quicker and faster than a larger dog when something is wrong.

Smaller dogs will also naturally be more vulnerable to hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) shock and regular rest and good nutrition help prevent this.

So it is important to keep the average price shown above in mind. It is vital to ask, if you see a cheaper puppy, why it is so cheap? You could end up paying out much more in vet care for a cheap puppy. We will talk more about this soon.

So we get the best of both worlds when finding a great breeder and healthy Yorkie puppy. We have a dog in good health and we are helping to maintain a great breed standard.

How much do Teacup Yorkies cost to buy?

Expert breeder Joyce Mijoy, an expert breeder who owns Mijoy Yorkshire & Biewer Terriers in South Africa kindly answered this question for us:

The price of course is going to be according to what the pup actually is size wise – pocket pups as most are in South Africa – sold as teacups – will be half the price of what we sell our own genuine teacup dogs for. HOWEVER our prices compare favourably (for the pockets), to the other breeders claiming they are teacup size, but we offer that much more.

All our pups are examined thoroughly by a vet. A pup from us will have had two puppy inoculations, numerous dewormings, be preventative treated against ticks and fleas from birth as NO real tiny dog can afford to have either, so all our dogs and pups are treated from the start. Our pups will be Identipet chipped, they will be registered and they will carry health guarantees for the first year of their lives.

The price of Teacup Yorkies seems to vary quite dramatically, why is that?

The reason being, a pup raised by its mother 24/7 and a pup that has been raised by its mother and its breeder supplementing feeding, assisting to ensure it is in fact receiving the nourishment it needs, is like night and day.

If I have pups, they are monitored around the clock, if I have particularly tiny pups as in teacups pups, I will check on those pups numerous times during the night. Four hourly is often not sufficient. So this is where the price differs. There is so much more put into a very tiny pup even compared to a pocket sized pup or miniature sized pup. Our very tiny pups will often still nurse from their moms at 12 weeks of age and they will have been eating solids from as young as 17 days of age.

A genuine tiny pup cannot be left in a litter where there are other larger sized pups without being monitored around the clock. It is vitally important for any pup, irrespective of its size, to have that close bond with its dog mother. It also needs the comfort it gets from lying with its litter mates.

We will monitor at all times and only if the safety of that tiny becomes jeopardised will we move it onto a younger litter. The pup will be removed and mom will be put in with it numerous times a day to see it gets that necessary attention only she can provide. I am totally against taking pups away for hand-raising as that alone puts a question over that pups head as to what size it is eventually going to end up.

  8. Kim Forrest says

    I have been involved with animals my whole life. Unfortunately I lost my horse farm during our divorce! I ended up very ill and in hospitals and nursing homes for a little over a year. I had on an average about 100 animals. All my Vets would say to me “if I die I want to come back as one of you animals”. It made me proud. The one animal I was able to walk away with was Katie (reg. Yorkie). I had to put her down 2years ago and I haven’t felt the same since. I have rescued a little male Yorkie but I would like to make our family whole with a little girl. Jax has separation anxiety and it would help him out also. I am retired and don’t have a lot of money, if anyone knows of a female yorkie puppy for sale on the lower price end that needs a fantastic loving home – PLEASE give me a call – Thank You Kim and Jax
