They are known as one of the smallest toy breeds. Their small size makes them ideal for people who live in small apartments or have children who want a dog that won’t knock over their toys and break them easily (or any other little creature). Also, because they’re so tiny and cute, many owners love bringing their Yorkie along everywhere they go—even on vacations!

Yorkie Growth Chart
There are a few things you can do to slow down Yorkie growth, including:
- Feed your Yorkie less food. Your dog will grow faster if it’s overfed, so make sure to keep an eye on how much he eats and give him the right amount of calories for his size. If you feed him too many treats, he may end up growing too fast and become overweight or obese as a result.
- Take him on walks around the neighborhood every day in order to burn off some extra energy and build strong muscles (this will help prevent injuries later in life).
- Exercise with your dog regularly by playing fetch or tug-of-war games at home while also practicing basic obedience commands such as “sit” or “stay away from me!”
It is possible to slow down your Yorkies growth rate by feeding them quality foods.
Yorkies are prone to hypoglycemia, which is a condition where the blood sugar levels become dangerously low. This can be caused by overfeeding your Yorkie and/or feeding them a food that has a high sugar content. It is very important to feed your Yorkie a high quality diet for this reason.
It is important to remember that all dogs are different and will grow at their own pace. If you want your Yorkie to be a medium-sized dog, then feeding him or her high quality foods is the best way to ensure that happens.
