So you're looking to get a new dog and you thought that you might prefer to have the bright and playful companionship of an energetic Yorkshire terrier. If this is the case then the best place for you to look for your new canine pet is from a breeder of Yorkshire Terriers. Whatever you do though, stay away from people or breeders who are advertising that they have a teacup Yorkshire Terrier for adoption.

This is because of the fact that the above statement is simply not true. There is no such breed of dog known as a teacup Yorkshire Terrier. A teacup Yorkshire Terrier is basically the smallest puppy in a litter of puppies and more often than not a puppy that is undersized would be labeled as Yorkshire Terrier.

This means that your Yorkshire puppy is going to be an easy prey for a large number of diseases and illnesses as it would weigh a lot less than the normal weight of a Yorkshire Terrier, which is about 4 to 7 pounds. A lot of care and nurturing would be required from you if you decide to go in for a smaller sized or miniature Yorkshire Terrier.

What you need to do is to find a reputable breeder who can provide you with a healthy teacup Yorkshire Terrier. But the problem arises when you get to the "reputable" part of a breeder. This is because of the fact that a reputed Yorkshire Terrier breeder would never provide you with a puppy that is underweight and is more likely to suffer from various ailments in the future.

This means that if you following a lead on an advertisement that provides details about providing a teacup Yorkshire Terrier to adopt, most probably involves an unscrupulous breeder. If you gather more information you would understand that most of these breeders would ask for a very large sum of money for these miniature or teacup Yorkshire Terriers.

Moreover you would also see that these irresponsible breeders are breeding small puppies on purpose. They specially select small Yorkshire Terriers to do all this, and you can be assured that with time more and more genetic defects would be found in these dogs and would be apparent more prominently.

Another thing that is also true is that you can go through all of this with your eyes and ears wide open and easily adopt a teacup Yorkshire terrier. You might also find that the Terrier puppy that you have bought does not have any illnesses, and that it is not at all prone to diseases. This may not be the case everytime but you would certainly be a lucky dog owner if it indeed was the case.

The best thing that you can do however, would be to stay away altogether from breeders who advertise that they have a teacup Yorkshire Terrier to sell, and instead find a reputable Yorkshire Terrier breeder to find your perfect puppy companion.
