Are you wondering how much your Yorkie puppy will weigh once your dog has reached their adult weight?
The size of a Yorkshire Terrier depends mostly on the size of the parents. Size may also skip a generation. Obviously, if a dog is under or overfed, this will also affect its size.
While it is not possible to know exactly how much a puppy will weigh as an adult, there is a method of calculating an estimate of the Yorkie puppy’s final adult size.
This works by looking at how much your Yorkie puppy weighs at a certain age and then you will have an approximate idea of what size your Yorkie adult dog will be.
Your veterinarian will be able to tell you your dog’s exact weight. You may also use a baby scale at home. A human adult scale will rarely show you the tiny differences in ounces, and this is needed to calculate the dog’s adult size.
1. Find your puppy’s age in the far left column.
2. Go across that row to find the weight that your puppy currently is. All numbers are ounces (except for the Final Adult Weight)
3. Follow the column down to the final adult weight.
