How Much Should a Yorkie Puppy Weigh?

I would like to know the right weight for a Yorkie puppy to weigh.
My Yorkie is ten weeks and The breeders said he is a Teacup. He weighs 4lbs now.

There can’t be a right weight. Some yorkies will only be 3-4lbs and some up to 7-8lbs. A 3-4lbs would only be about a pound at 6wks. A 7-8lb would be twice that at 6wks.

If you want a small one look for a puppy that is still small at 12-16wks. They should only weigh 2-3lbs.

    The breed standard of the Yorkshire Terrier is not to exceed 7 lbs. Any dog under 3 lbs is going to have a higher risk of health problems, so don’t buy in to the "teacup" nonsense.

    An adult Yorkie (healthy) should weigh between 5-7lb. Anything under 4lb is a runt.

    You are so smart, according to your other questions, you should know the answer.

    Again, you are only 12 years old, not old enough to be here, so AGAIN, you are reported.

    Try reading the breed standard. You’ve got $12 and still under the impression that you’re a couple of months away from getting your runt puppy. Check out this site to see what those runts go for http://www.courtashyorkies.com/Nursery.html

    1) There is no such thing as a teacup Yorkie. It’s a scam…a marketing term. A little research on the breed before you got the guy would have probably been a good idea.

    2) The general rule of thumb for guessimating adult size is to triple the weight at 8 wks, and double it at 12 wks. Your guy is on track to be around 8 lbs. Considering that the standard for the Yorkshire Terrier is "not to exceed 7 lbs." So it’s a safe bet that he’s going to be on the larger end of the scale.
