Tips for Teacup Yorkies owners - By Laura Koch, Petit Jean Puppies

It will be tempting to hold the puppy all the time.  But do not over stimulate the puppy at first.  It will stress the pup and also won't give it the full rest it requires.  It needs its own leisure time in its "area" to eat, drink, and play.  They need to have small soft toys so they can learn to occupy themselves when you are not available.  Do not change your puppies housing arrangement for a couple weeks --don't take it somewhere to spend the night,  or don't leave with a sitter yet, this will only cause more stress during this difficult transition period.  

You will need to monitor your puppy every 2-3 hours during the day to make sure he or she has eaten.  If they have not, then force feed (mentioned below) or give double dose of  nutrical or nutristat.  The regular intake of high quality food is the important thing you can do to keep your puppy alive.  Just a couple hours of not eating and then running and playing can very easily lead to a hypoglycemic episode.  The symptoms of this are lethargy, vertigo, and comatose and white gums.  Gum color should be a pink to light pink color.  If gray or white, they are not getting enough food to sustain their existence.


You do not have time to get to the vet.  You must get Karo Syrup, Honey or Sugar Water in the puppy immediately.  Give 1/4 cc/tsp every 15 minutes till they regain consciousness.  Keep giving to and take to the vet.  Continue with Nutrical or Nutristat to bring pup back to normal.  Provide warmth as well, their body temp will drop too.  

When the pup can start eating on it's own, you can relax now, it will get stronger quickly.  It has to do with the small size of their liver and kidneys; they just don't have much reserve. Give Nutrical more often after this has happened! 

Your puppy has been on 2 TBSP (or more if desired) diced baked chicken breast 3 times per day and eukanuba food and water available at all times.  Chicken and rice water mixture is also good.  I chop into pea size chunks and warm it if they aren't interested. Science Diet A/D can food is good as a force feeder if you see them not wanting to eat.  It  is a prescription only food, but is not that expensive when a can will last you a week!  So  will one chicken breast!  You can ask the vet for a syringe to pull the canned food up with.  

This is the only can food I have found that you can draw up in a syringe and squirt into the mouth a tiny bit at a time.  Otherwise you have to poke it down with your finger.  This is only when they are refusing to eat otherwise.  This is not fun, but if your pup decides it doesn't want to eat, you can save its life by doing this.  I have saved many puppies during weaning with this food!
You can cut the chicken back to twice per day in 2 weeks and then once per day when you see them eating more of the dry eukanuba food.  Provide Bottled Water for teacups.  They do not need fluoride; it is toxic to their system.   

I use my finger and place on the roof of their mouth and drag my finger across their teeth.  This is the least messy way.  It is sticky and sweet. 


You can use a few more times the first few days. I use to say you can't over do it, until a lady told me she went thru a tube in 2 days.  You can over do it and make their stools loose.  Do not give other people junk food!  They will refuse to eat their good food and will hold  out until the next french fry or cheetos!  They don't eat much, so what they do eat needs to be high quality food.  Salt is really bad for teacups and can dehydrate them.  Do not add salt to your chicken and rice mixture.



You will need to confine your puppy in a limited size area such as a playpen or small  bath room.  Yorkies are very active and will run and play until they pass out.  They are like toddlers on holidays; they would rather run and play with their buddies than eat.  So try to limit the active play periods to about 15-20 minutes per time and spread them out thru the day.  They do need exercise, but not all at once.  They will get hypoglycemia if they over do it. 


Please understand and make sure your family/children understand that Yorkies are the most wiggle worm active dog out there and holding them is a challenge even for an experienced adult.  It would be wise it to only allow children to play with the puppy sitting on the floor, even thru adult hood.   They are very fragile.  I had one buyer call that dropped hers and the next morning it died.  So you can see why I am telling you all
of this!  

I also have had one buyer’s puppies' toenail get stuck in the hardwood floor and  it turned and tried to run and broke its leg.  So you can see how fragile they are.  They CANNOT jump off the couch or bed or chair.  They will break a bone.  A good idea would be a halter type collar and a leash tied on to the holder somehow.  This still could cause injury if dropped but maybe not as severe as dropping to the floor.  I have a habit of the TWO HANDED RULE with children.  Both hands must be on the pup at all times.  Hold the hair if that's all you can grab.

Wear sock feet around the puppy until it learns to stay out from under your feet.  That is where she will be and the smallest kick can send her off to injury.  Sock feet also can feel a baby near by where shoes do not. 


 If your pup needs any kind of surgery, please weight until the pup is over 2-3 lbs.  Like spaying or neutering or dental work or hernia repair, etc.  They are so small; the anesthesia is so very dangerous in the teacups. 


DO NOT LET YOUR VET GIVE A SHOT IN THE FIRST 10 DAYS YOU HAVE HER.  Shots weaken their immune systems and make them more susceptible to illness and disease.  MY VET RECOMMENDS ONLY A 1/2 DOSE OF THE PUPPYSHOTS FOR TEACUP PUPPIES.  Shot reactions can be fatal to these tiny puppies.  Let your pup get settled in with you and its new surroundings before you add the additional stress of another shot.  Just make sure the pup isn't in public places until its last puppy shot as it is still open to disease until 3 weeks after its last shot.


Only bathe when needed.  I do once a week.   I use diluted baby shampoo.  Rinse really well to avoid itching.  Towel dry and then blow-dry, be careful with the heat.  Provide extra heat after bath and do not take out in drafts for several hours.  You can trim your puppies feet hair and potty trail and under eye area yourself.  Your puppy does not need to be exposed at the groomer till its last shot has been given.  They can catch kennel cough and they can stress out from being at the groomer all day long in a drafty cage.  A teacup would not make it thru a full day of that.  Do it yourself for a few months!   
Flea and tick medications are very strong.  I would recommend using Diataematious Earth, which is a powder of ground up seashells that causes the fleas to die because they can't jump anymore because of the abrasive tiny powders.  If you do use front line, do not give the entire amount, 0-22 lbs is a huge range, and if your pup only weighs 2 lbs you can see where you would be overdosing them.  You can get a tb syringe and pull up the amount needed, just do the math!   I add to this sheet whenever things arise that people have questions or concerns.  

Thanks for taking the time to educate yourself, your puppy thanks you and so do I!

A woolly, cottony, or wavy coat is not allowed, nor is a coat with champagne or white hair. Often a middle to dark anthracite is confused with steel blue (Yorkies with the former have hardly a correct tan). A Yorkshire Terrier of at least 24-30 months whose tan is already correctly shaded with gold and without grey hair usually hat a slightly lighter steel blue.

The Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog breed of terrier type, developed in the 19th century in the county of Yorkshire, England, to catch rats in clothing mills, also used for rat-baiting. The defining features of the breed are its maximum size of 7 pounds (3.2 kg) and its gray, black, and tan coat.

The breed is nicknamed Yorkie and is placed in the Toy Terrier section of the Terrier Group by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale and in the Toy Group or Companion Group by other kennel clubs, although all agree that the breed is a terrier. A popular companion dog, the Yorkshire Terrier has also been part of the development of other breeds, such as the Australian Silky Terrier.

Teacup Yorkies are a wonderful lap dog, dislike being ignored, love human attention and enjoy their owners continuously holding and making a fuss of them. They are dependant and demanding so require a lot of attention.

Why is Called a "Teacup" Yorkie?

Teacup Yorkies
Teacup Yorkies

Commonly called a Yorkie, Yorkshire terriers, which originated in England, are a small breed of dog listed in the toy category. They have beautiful silky, long, blue coats and playful, fun terrier behavior. The average size for both male and females is from eight to nine inches and weigh up to seven pounds. 

The American Kennel Club places each dog breed into a group and Yorkshire terriers are in the toy group because of their small size. The AKC standard for Yorkshire terriers is seven pounds and under, and most in the show ring range from five to seven pounds. Within the Yorkshire terrier breed there are no sub-categories.

A teacup Yorkshire terrier is not a separate dog breed standard or classification as there is no such breed of dog as a teacup Yorkie. Teacup or tiny is a size category made up by breeders for individuals looking for a tiny lap dog in the two or four pound range. They use this term to help possible pet owners find the size or type of Yorkie they want easier, as there is a large number of people looking for a tiny or "teacup" Yorkie. Although there are a few Yorkie teacup and show breeders that breed strictly for money, most breed for temperament, health, and quality.

The difference between most show breeders of five to seven pound Yorkies and breeders of teacup Yorkies from two to four pounds is the size of the puppies. In a show litter, sometimes a puppy remains small because of genetics or it is premature. Most breeders specializing in teacup Yorkies study the pedigree and genetics of their stock and breed for temperament, size, health and quality the same as show Yorkie breeders.

Although teacup Yorkies are very tiny, most are oblivious to this. They are energetic, scared of very little, playful, intelligent, brave, loving, loyal, sweet, adventurous, and fun. They are highly affectionate with their owners but are sometimes aggressive towards other small animals and can be territorial and suspicious of strangers. Early socialization of teacup Yorkies helps prevent this when they reach adulthood. Teacup Yorkies are a wonderful lap dog, dislike being ignored, love human attention and enjoy their owners continuously holding and making a fuss of them. They are dependant and demanding so require a lot of attention.

Because of teacup Yorkies' small size, they are ideal for smaller dwellings such as apartments or homes without a large yard. They do benefit from regular playing and running but are very active so do not require a lot of exercise. They require regular grooming including daily brushing. Teacup Yorkies need their ears, eyes, and teeth cleaned regularly. Their fragile, tiny stature makes the teacup Yorkie a better pet for older, considerate children and not recommended for a home with small children. With a lot of love and proper care, a teacup Yorkie will provide you with many years of enjoyment.

Meet the Teacup Yorkies

I found this post on hubpages, its very useful and very good so i feel free to share this with you ...original post you can find on this page: chooseyourpet.

The teacup Yorkie is considered a variety of the original breed. Also called a miniature Yorkie, this dog is so small that it weighs only about 3 pounds, less than half of the normal weight of an adult Yorkshire terrier. The term "teacup" is used to emphasize how small the dog can be, that it can be brought almost anywhere with very little trouble. 

Where can you buy teacup Yorkshire terriers if you're interested? Sources say that only specialized breeders and puppy kennels sell this variety. In the UK, the teacup Yorkie may cost from £300 and above, and that is roughly about $600. 

Like in the care of other dog breeds, the Yorkie needs extra maintenance especially on the part of grooming. Because all varieties of Yorkshire terriers have a soft and silky hair that can grow rapidly, the responsible owner needs to regularly bathe, groom, and trip the teacup Yorkie's coat. 

The teacup Yorkie can come in a variety of colors, ranging from bluish steel gray, to tan, honey gold, and also black. A lot of owners like to take their teacup Yorkies to groomers, since these establishments are specially equipped to trim the fines hairs from this breed. 

It is not advisable to bathe the teacup Yorkie, or any other kind of Yorkie, on a daily basis. Sources say that it is better to give him a bath when he is already dirty, or it can be done about twice to thrice a week. Plus, you need to choose a mild shampoo that helps protect the hair and skin. When grooming, you can use a steel brush for your teacup Yorkshire terrier. 

Hairs on the body are trimmed to any length as desired by the owner. Some teacup Yorkie owners like their dog's hair to reach the floor, or they can leave the cut very short. The belly area and rear end of the Yorkie must also be shaved, for hygienic purposes and to avoid parasites.
Yorkies are one of the best breeds of dogs that could be a pet to anyone. They are affectionate and sweet, and of course harmless. When given much care, they'll give a lot back to their owners.
