    My pup is 16wks (in 6 days) and weighed 4.4lbs at the vet 3 days ago……. I cannot seem to use his numbers and this chart!! Does it mean that he will be greater than 6 lbs??

  2. Hello I wanted to see how much one of my yorkies puppy will weigh when adult she s only 10 days old and weights 3.8 ounces. thanks

    I have 4 Yorkies, and I have looked at several sights that all say the same thing, and none of them are jiving with my dogs! They are 3 weeks & 2 days old. The largest is 2 lbs. already & the others are 1.5, 1.7. The mommy is 13 lbs. and the daddy was only 3 lbs. Concerned that they will be so big that no one will want them!

  4. Anyone located in California? I have been searching for a good yorkie breeder.

      I’m in Cali.

      Did you find a good breeder yet? I live in San Diego and just had my first liter. My dogs have been with me since 8 weeks of age. Never been kennel and have the most calm personalities. I have 2 girls left but they wont be ready until the end of November.

    I’m afraid I’ve overfed my pups! my 4 puppies just turned 5 weeks old. mom was about 6.3 and dad was 3.0ish. mom wasn’t feeding the smaller of the 4 pups and many times they wouldn’t gain during the day, so I began supplementing with formula. because I had the formula I also fed to the larger 2. now the 2 smaller ones weigh 17.9 oz. & 22.1 oz. (on track to be 4.0 – 4.25 lbs.) but the larger 2 weigh 27.6 and 28.9 oz. I think the larger 2 hog up mommy’s milk and the smaller 2 get left out.
    mom has gotten less and less interested in nursing, only nursing 1 minute, maybe 2, standing, so I began slowly weaning them a few days ago. in the morning I make 1 tbsp. of ground kibble with formula into a canned puppy food-like mush & they like it. problem is the larger 2 seem to like it more than the smaller 2 & eat more.
    my thought was they grow bigger & begin eating hard puppy kibble their weight will even out. but now I worry that I have overfed the 2 larger ones and they will be large for life. don’t feel I can deny the larger 2 the ground up kibble because they need to wean.
    any thoughts on the theory that chubby puppies can even out as they begin eating hard kibble only? thanks!

    I have a question, don’t really understand chart. My puppy weighs 1lb 13oz he is 4weeks.. If I convert to ounces is 18.07 oz. correct? So he may be 5lbs?

  7. Melanie Johnson on July 21, 2015 @ 8:17 pm

    My Yorkie puppy is 14 weeks and 3 days and weighs 2.3lbs. Does that mean that she will be around 4 lbs full grown?

  8. April Barker on August 27, 2015 @ 3:16 pm

    HI I dont understand the chart either. My baby is 11 weeks old and weighs 2 lbs. How big should he be as an adutlt?

  9. Hi April, Thanks for sahring!
    He should be about 4.5 lbs when he becomes an adult.

  10. How big will a 10 week old puppy weighing 12oz right now be as an adult?

  11. My yorkie is 19weeks and about 2.8-2.9kg that’s almost 100oz so she is off the chart the vet says she isn’t overweight + you can tell she isn’t just by looking at her and feeling her rib cage so how big will she get? And when do they stop growing?? (First time yorkie owner)

  12. Connie Pina on March 4, 2016 @ 12:27 am

    Hello I took my baby to the vet and she weighs 4oz she is 8 weeks old how big will she get?

  13. Connie Pina on March 4, 2016 @ 12:35 am

    Can someone help? I took my baby girl to the vet yesturday she is 8 weeks old and only weighs 4 oz how big will she get thank you

    • From my calculations ( don’t depend on my math lol) it looks like she will be under a pound. That doesn’t make sense to me. Are you sure she is only 4 oz at 8 weeks?
      What does she weight now?

  14. My Yorkies roughly 4.4lbs and hes 5 months. Does anyone know how big he’lol possibly be??

  15. My Yorkie is 4 months tomorrow and he weighs 6.6lbs. How much will he be as an adult

  16. Hi my daughter bought me a yorkie after I lost my sweet Tootie Dog 8 weeks ago & she was also a yorkie. I’ve had such a hard time with my loss and still am so she thought I needed another Furbaby & Molly was supposed to be a teacup size and that isn’t so. She is 13 weeks & weighed 4.2 lb at Vet yesterday & of course she wasn’t very still standing the scales so is she going to be a 7 or 8 lb girl & she also has the longest legs.

  17. Football4life on April 12, 2016 @ 5:20 pm

    Thank for posting great article about teacups and how there is no such thing! Any human that is cruel enough to make a tiny female have puppies should be prosecuted. So inhumane…I can’t believe there are not laws against this practice.

  18. When I got my yorkie he was underweight at 1.4 lbs. I have been fattening him up (vet says he’s healthier now) and now he’s about 38.5 oz at 17.5 weeks. Looking at this chart he’ll be around 3.5 to 4 lbs. Could he be a little larger even though he’s on track with weight now? I was actually hoping for around 5 lbs – a good healthy weight .

  19. Jazmin Loredo on May 24, 2016 @ 8:44 pm

    Hello my yorkie just turned 5 months a couple days ago and he is onky 3 lbs is that normal?

  20. I bought 2 yorkie2 from the same person and they are 10 weeks old. The female weighs 4 lbs 8 ounces and the male weighs 4 lbs 1 ounce….the lady I bought her off of said the mama only weight 6 lbs n the dad weighed 4 lbs…They don’t look chubby….what is ur guess as to what these babies will weigh full grown cus they aren’t on ur chart!

    I’m getting a Yorkie. She weighed not even 1lb at 6 weeks. At 8 weeks breeder told me she is at 1.5lbs.
    Mom is 5-5.5 I believe and dad is 4-4.5lbs.

    Hi my puppy is 16 weeks today and weighs 3.8 .what will be his adult weight please.

  32. Hi I have 2 Yorkies both 10 weeks old and one is 1.5 pounds and the other is 3.5 pounds. About how big do you think they will get when they are full grown??

  33. Hi my puppies are 11 weeks old one weighs 2.5 pounds and the other weighs 3.5 pounds what do you think their adult weight will be?? I find the chart a bit confusing

  34. Hi,
    Jan 22nd @ 15 wks 6 days, weighing 2.24kg – how big and heavy do u think she will be when mature? She looks stocky/ solid…not overweight…
    When she was 8 weeks, only 0.9kg but 4 weeks later at 12 weeks, her weight went up to 1.58kg…so i m confused her as she does not look big but she is definately heavy.

    • Hey Nicholas,
      He should be about 7- 7.5 lbs when he is adult.
      Please feel free to share your experiences or comments on our Facebook page or you can send us photos of your Yorkie here:
      Mary and Bonbon

      • Thank u for ur reply.
        I m curious coz her weight jumps up so fast.
        8 weeks – 1.9 Ibs
        12 weeks – 3.5 Ibs
        15 wks 6 days – 2.24kg (4.9-5 Ibs)
        How long b4 their weight starts slowing down? She is 20 weeks 5 days now.
