Miniature Biewer Yorkies

The Miniature Biewer Yorkie is simply a Yorkshire Terrier who has been bred to be significantly smaller than normal.
Miniature Biewer Yorkie usually weighs between 2 and 4 pounds but can weigh up to 7 pounds.

Unfortunately, these extra tiny pups can have some size-related health issues, like fragile bones, bladder problems, and more.
Small dogs and toy breeds have been popular with dog lovers for a long time. Over the past decade, even smaller mini, micro, or ‘teacup’ versions of these breeds have become increasingly popular.

Miniature Biewer Yorkies are not a new or separate breed of dog. If the Miniature Yorkie puppies you have your eye on are pedigree, they are registered as Yorkshire Terriers the same as any regular-size Yorkshire Terrier.
Miniature Biewer Yorkies are not restricted to the Yorkshire Terrier breed, other toy breeds have been miniaturized too. This makes a lot of people unhappy and some people quite angry.

If you are thinking of buying a Miniature Biewer Yorkies puppy, you should probably know why Miniature Biewer Yorkie and other teacup dogs are controversial. Not just because you may find yourself the target of criticism for your choice of puppy. But because it is important to be aware of the challenges and downsides of miniaturizing dogs before you decide to own one.
