Question
Hi,I have 10 weeks yorkshire terrier puppy and he's weight is 1.6 kg already,is he going to be big dog? Mom and dad is 3.2 kg
thanks?

Answer
Hello Eva,

If his growth continues normally, I expect him to be about the same weight as the parents or possibly slightly bigger. Although he may be a little bigger than the parents,  I wouldn't expect him to be over 4 kg. Regardless, he will not be a large dog. I hope that helps.

I can answer questions regarding dog training, nutrition, grooming, and pretty much anything in between. I am also happy to answer questions regarding dog/puppy selection, choosing a pet professional (dog trainer, groomer, veterinarian, sitter, walker, etc.) care, handling, and product reviews. In regards to health questions, I can answer minor health/home care type questions, but in no way can give veterinary advice or diagnose illness. If you have concerns about your pet's health, please seek the advice of a veterinarian.
