Yorkie Growth Chart Based On Yorkshire Terrier Puppy's Weight And Age

This yorkie growth chart is to only be used as a guide line. Other factors such the genetics of the Yorkie parents and past history of that particular breeding should be combined with the chart. We also look at the weekly trend to see if a growth pattern is developing.

How to use this Yorkie Growth / Weight Chart:

You must convert your yorkie puppy's weight to ounces and age to weeks in order to use this chart.

16 ounces = 1 pound
Example: 3 lbs 3 oz. = (3 x 16) +3 oz = 51 oz.

Conclusion

We use this same yorkie puppy growth chart for our teacup yorkie puppies. With teacup yorkies this yorkie growth chart is not very reliable until the puppy is over 12 weeks of age. For the first 12 weeks we look at the chart, but factor in the genetics of the parents and the physical size of the puppy to arrive at an estimated adult weight. If you read the article why dogs stay small you will have a better understanding on why teacups  growth slows as they age.
