About How Much Does a Yorkie Puppy Cost?

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

    Well a good line of Yorkie is going to run you probably over 1000 dollars for one. I wouldn’t go anywhere else but a good line because then you will have meager health problems and then you will be paying for more vet bills.

    Well I am going to say with shots and heart worms through out the year about 500 dollars for the year that also with flea treatments from the vet. I am going to say a 30 pound bag of food should last you 3 to 4 months so 120 dollars for food a year maybe.

    That is just an idea on how much they run.

    I haven’t seen a yorkie run under $1000 dollars even by a back yard breeder. And they aren’t good lines to have.

    Your local shelter or a shelter close to your would have yorkie hopefully if so they give them all the shots and are half the price of an breeder
