(WE ARE SEEN HERE TRYING TO SAVE TWO DYING PUPS)
Over the years we have lost a few puppies; and it never gets easier. We spend 24-7 taking care of these little guys, and when a yorkie puppy gets sick; it just requires that much more nurturing due to their tiny size they can die in a matter of hours.
Sometimes we find ourself exhausted; and sleep deprived after days and days of non stop care for a weak pup. The greatest feeling we have is when we can get a weak pup strong and healthy. Sometimes the cost to treat the ill pup can be extremely pricey with Vet visits, medicine, food, bottles, tubes etc. So if you are still asking "Why are Yorkies so expensive" below are some more of the expenses we usually pay while raising these little guys.
It is estimated that the average breeder spends 120 hours per month caring for their Yorkies and pups. This 120 hours cannot be scheduled around other obligations; other obligations must be scheduled around your puppies. The small size of Yorkie puppies make them extremely susceptible to hypoglycemia and instant death during the first three months of life if they are not cared for properly. So, having a litter of Yorkies pretty much takes a considerable chunk of time and independence from your life.
Now expenses most breeders have to pay.
