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??

Mi Miranda!
Thanks for visiting my site.
Yep, it looks your adult Yorkie will weight more than 6 lbs. It looks that he will be bigger than usual.
But don’t worry, size doesn’t matter. Yorkie’s are the best and most loveable creatures.
I would love to see photos of you Yorkie puppy. If you want I can post then here:

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!

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… Read more »

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?

Hi Denise! 1 Pound is 16 Ounces so if your Yorkie weights 1lb 13oz he weights 29 Ounces.

Hi Melanie!
2.3 lbs is 36.8 Ounces so correct!
He should be about 4 lbs as an adult

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)

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?

I have a sweet morkie, Eiko when he was
8 weeks and 4 days he weighed— 3. lb 027 ounces
9 weeks and a day he weighed —-3.lb 074 ounces
11 weeks and a day he weighed— 4 lb 084 ounces
13 weeks he weighed —5 lb.70 ounces
16 weeks and 2 days which is today, he weighs 7 lb . 088 0unces
lb means pounds
So the charts make no sense for my puppy. I love them big or small anyway.

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.

If you love her, what difference does it make if she is 3 lbs or 10 lbs? We love our Yorkies.

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.

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 .

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.

Guest

Hey Nicholas,
He should be about 7- 7.5 lbs when he is adult.
