I’m 15 years old and I’ve been convincing my parents to get a dog for about 2 years now! They finally said it’s a maybe and i’m 90% sure it’s going to be my christmas present. Please tell me about how much it is to buy a yorkie puppy, white or brown it doesn’t matter. How much for the food? Shots? I need to be prepared with the correct information to tell my parents so i can finally get a dog!
Thanks so much. I appreciate it
From a reputable breeder and not a puppy mill yorkie at a pet store/kijiji… probably 1200 or so…Make sure all the proper health testing has been done, and that you’ve done your research…
Yorkies are prone to: Early dental disease, retained deciduous teeth, liver shunts, heart murmurs, luxating patellas, and collapsing trachea.
The chances of an unhealthy puppy goes up when it comes from a pet store or backyard breeder.
Vaccines are about 80$ each and you need at least 3 distemper.parvo combo shots, as well as 1 rabies shot… for the first year.
Deworming should be done multiple times, and is usually around 30$ per round.
Food varies greatly on brand, and quality.
Then you need supplies.. leash, collar, bowls, crate, combs, brush, shampoo, nail clippers, toys, bed, etc.
Pet Insurance- depends on which plan you go with and what you want for a deductible
