Yorkies run anywhere from $400.00 on uo to $3,500.00 It just depends on their background and also if the parents were show dogs. You can get a very nice one for 4 to 5 hundred dollars by just watching you local newspaper.

Well, I just got a yorkie and it costed about $2000. It's a brilliant cute dog. A decent yorkie would cost $750 and up. I have a maltese also, It is also a brilliant dog. It loves kids and i bought it for $400 canadian.So i would take an estimate, a decent maltese would cost from around say 350 and up. Hope the info helped.

I don't think you should waste money on these dogs if you have kids(knowing as i had one)you cant let them play with bigger dogs or they will get crushed and if you accidentally step on the dog which i never did but it could get badly hurt or die so consider this before you spend the money on a yorkshire Terrier.

I just want a yorkie as a pet!  I don't want a show dog, or pure blood necessarily...I just want a pet!  It is absolutely ridiculous that I cannot find a Yorkshire Terrier for less than $800.00.  What can a person like me, someone who just wants to provide a loving home for a loving puppy, do to obtain one of these precious creatures without taking out a second mortgage?  Please, HELP!

If you want just a yorkie as a pet then try rescue. That is what they cost. A breeder will spend hundreds to breed them. Since they are small they incur insane vet bills. The breeders profit is minimal. If you just want a pet to love try not being so restrictive in the breed you want.

Angie, you might consider a mixed Yorkie.  I too, wanted a great, small house pet and fell in love with Yorkies.  After looking for more than a year I ened up with a Yorkie-poo.  The mix was an accident, but it was the best thing that could have ever happened to us.  Romeo has the coloring of a Yorkie, the a softer less severe face and the super sweet disposition.  I recently read that this mix is a hardy dog and rarely carries some of the genetic problems that Yorkies tend to have.  He is currently 8 weeks old and weighs 3 pounds.  His parents were just under and at 8 pounds.  We are looking forward to years of happiness with him.  I wish you the best of luck.  Just remember to take your time!!

You can find a nice pet quality for about $1000.00/1500.00  but if you are looking for a high quality Yorky the price will be higher. Many famous breeders invest so much money in dog shows, that's because dogs from a champion/well-known bloodline may cost more.  Usually you get what you pay! You may find Yorkshire Terriers that are $3,500/4000 and sometimes even higher than that. I was very picky in choosing the right one. I didn't mind to spend more as long I could own a top quality animal. I bought mine from Dolce Sinfonia in Beverly Hills.

Good Morning Ladies and Gents! I tip my had to you! This tall, dark and handsome gent, (cavalier of course) is quite taken, by some of your comments regarding, Dr. Parisi.  I see you've dropped another coin.  Her young 22 month old "Mozart" took the bronze medal at the "World Dog Championships" in Brazil. I was present and young "Mozart should have taken first, however, it just takes one American Judge to have a favorite.  Dr. Parisi was "DAZZLING" in the ring. Quite a sight! She was "PRETTY IN PINK" although in my eyes, behind my mask, she was ravishing and so is "Mozart".......His worth is at least $20,000.00.  Champions certainly hold the title for the highest priced canine.  Martin! TSK! Dated 6-3-04..why is it you ask more about the elusive "Bella Sabrina"  are you one of her stalkers?  Drop another coin, and I "MAY" tell you more! ZZZZZZZ

But the point is, she is an entrepreneur. Everybody knows that.

I would like to tell Zorro that everything he wrote is very close to the reality and I think to know this person (I am talking about Zorro) I discovered his secret! Many thinks are wrong or false, many things are true but he is so so smart that he goes so close with what he says that people believe him.  I must say that I think he is a very intelligent person and I say so because of what he is writing.   CONGRATULATION!!!  I know personally Sabrina Alessandra Parisi and I know she is a very special person and that she sells to only very special people.  Before selling any of her Yorkies she checks about the family and how these people will carry the Yorky. She checks about them even after so many years and always gives the right suggestions to these people. She is not a liar and she always asks may opinion and she trusts me because she knows that I am very sincere.  This is the first time I am writing to this forum and I am saying something because many things that were said were untrueth and they really bothered me!

I've been looking into buying a Yorkshire Terrier for several months there. I have never been the person to jump into anything, and maybe a little advice from someone just starting off with a Yorkie will help. I started off by checking on the internet for a Yorkie, as I'm sure many other people do. One thing to keep in mind, is that many of all dogs sold in the US come from Puppy Mills, and yorkies, due to their size, are a "puppy-mill-best-seller". It's a sad thing, so make sure you checkout your breeder! I've seen the prices on the net, and yes they are crazy. If you're looking for a "pet quality" yorkie, I think the lady with $350 will do just fine. Granted, it will be hard to find, but they're out there, the trick is just to find a responsible breeder, who WANTS their puppy to go to a good home. Start off my asking the local vets. I've sent over 300 emails to vets all up and down the East Coast, looking for references, and more than half of them were able to reply with owners of Yorkies they treat on a regular basis. So, right of the bat, you'll know of any genetic problems in the doggie'sfamily. Liver shunts are a big problem with Yorkies, but it's a genetic trait and a test can easily be done on the parents and the puppies. A good seller will not have a problem performing this test, many that I have spoken to, show the test results as almost the first things. Also start by checking the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America's website for referred breeders. They have a nice list of people who are a member of the organization, and conform to very strict guidelines for breeding. Last but not least, you can check the AKC'ssite for breeders. Many of these people certainly do have very expensive dogs $2000-4000, but they also have puppies who are not quite the run of the mill show quality, and these people really care about their pups, and will gladly chop down the price for someone who will truly love the dog. I had found a wonderful breeder in Canada who was willing to let me adopt one of her retired champion's pups for $300... too bad she is 2800 miles away. Be prepared to give veterinarian referrals, and if this is your first dog, go find yourself an excellent vet, and tour the facilities. Tell him the situation, and if he thinks your okay as an owner, he/she will gladly be your referral. Even if one of the places you contact does not have a puppy in your price range, they will gladly give show you to another breeder that you can trust. Now, if you're looking for adoption... try www.puppymillrescue.com ,there are are some truly heartwarming yorkies on there, but we warned, many of them have had very very very hard lives, and will require extra training and love. I think that adoption fees for yorkies on there are $300. I know at this moment, there is a gorgeous yorkie on there named "Sassy" who is about 5 years old, who will probably go fast! So, how much should a Yorkie cost? I would say anywhere from $300-$550. Don't jump into the hype of the expensive puppy. These dogs are getting a lot of recognition due to celebrities owning them, and having their pictures on the news with them. A true, loving breeder doesn't care about that, and will reflect prices that they know a loving parent will be able to afford.

I love Yorkshire Terriers! There so cute. But my parents won't let me have one. I don't know if its that they don't want a dog, or its to much. I think they should cost $150. But maybe one day I'll get one.

I have two Purebred Yorkshire Terriers from Professional breeders. For both of them (combined) I spend roughly $5,400. They are very sweet, smart dogs. I wouldn't trade them for anything else - they are my babies!

I know you want a Yorkie badly. Keep looking. Unfortunately, sob stories (I just want to give an animal a good home...) don't get far. Breeders barely make enough as it is to sell them for the price they do. Look at rescues, or save up. Unfortunately there is no other way around it.

I'm very fasinated with the Yorkie Breed, but I'm sorry $1000 for a DOG is a bit to much. I mean come on were talking about a DOG! I have been admiring the yorkie for a year now and I know one day I will own one, the max I will spend it $500 and I still think that is to much. They have a face that steals your heart away. I know when I get my little girl she will be one spoiled pup. I eat, sleep and dream of Yorkies, yes you can say I'm Obsest with this breed. I look everyday in the petfinder.com classified ads, I'm in Indiana so I don't usually see any close to me, but I will be willing to travel some. Cant travel to far, we all know that gas is outragoues! But I will continue to be patient and someday my little girl will find me, in the mean time all you fools can continue paying $$$$$$$$$

ok i was just surfing the web looking for dog prices and i land on this page unfortunately.  The only people who give a rats ass on that beverly hills chick is yall..go get a life and move on.  Dogs arent THAT big of a deal and anybody who would pay that much for a yorkie has to be insane.

Wow.  Where do you guys get your yorkies?  I have been searching for months and months and cannot find any in my area.  If there are some, they are way too costly and cannot afford.  Is it worth the price to get a family pet that costs over a grand and may spend alot more money to feed them and raise them?  I just want a small baby yorkie that does not cost so much.  I think the most reasonable price is $300-600 for them.  Unless they are show dogs.  But I know that most of these are not show dogs but they would sell up to $4000 sometimes.  I cant believe the owner or breeder would do that.  I do not know if they would ever get their babies a good home with the kind of price.  I think some owners are money bags.  Up to no good.

I'm also looking for the prices of a Yorkshire terrier. It would just be a household pet, not a show dog or anything. I've been looking on websites and stuff, and the cheapest I can find is $600. $600?! For a pet? That's outrageous! So, I'm going to keep looking, 'cause I refuse to pay more then $400.

i just bought a yorkshire, he's six months and cost me about $300, anything more than $500 i would say that is not worth it. Also always search the person's name who you are buying from because there are a lot of frauds on line. if anyone is looking to buy, i know a woman who has a male and a female (yorkshire terriers) left in new york city. she's selling them for $400, let me know if interested.

Our yorkie was $3000 at American Kennels in NYC.. But the additional costs are alot. Her favorite food is filet mignon and several other items on the Ruths Chris menu.

You Dolce Sifona lovers are so sad. This is a high price breeder. She's smart, maybe, but who cares-- I'm a Harvard graduate as well and am graduating at the top of my class in Medical School right now. This means nothing!-- Zorro, you are either the woman herself or a crazy stalker. Who talks like that-- go to school to learn proper english! As for my suggestion: Adopt, it's the humane thing to do.

i honestly dont understand the point in paying hundreds and thousands of dollars for a small dog. if i could find just a normal yorkie puppy. not akc or have show dog parents that would be absolutely wonderful. ive been wanting one of these puppies for a long while now but if i was to find a decent priced one then i would be able to purchase it. i cant get a large dog or i would just go adopt one from the pound and not have to pay nearly as much.
