Although the cost of a teacup Yorkie can be considered expensive, when looking at established breeder's prices, tiny teacup Yorkies can be found at much lower prices. A search of the online classifieds reveals that teacup Yorkies advertised through this method typically cost between $250 and $2,000 with more puppies available at the lower end of the pricing scale.
